At A Better Weigh Center, we perform various kinds of bariatric surgeries, or weight loss surgeries, to help our patients lead healthier lives.

If you have been struggling with obesity, our team of medical weight loss professionals can help you determine what kind of bariatric surgery is right for you. Your medical history and weight loss goals are some of the factors that will be taken into consideration.

Potential candidates for bariatric surgery include individuals who suffer from obesity-related hypertension, arthritis, sleep apnea, and diabetes.

Minimally Invasive & Highly Effective
While the notion of bariatric surgery may seem invasive, our center performs these surgeries laparoscopically. By narrowing the surgical site and relying on small cameras, we can minimize scarring. Laparoscopic surgeries also result in faster recovery times. Our board certified surgeons have extensive training in minimally invasive bariatric surgery.
What is the recovery time for bariatric surgery in Dallas?
Every patient is different, so it is impossible to predict the exact time it will take to recover. However, because bariatric surgery is a minimally invasive procedure, bariatric surgery recoveries are generally shorter than invasive surgeries. Many patients, if not most, are out of the hospital in two or three days, driving after ten days, and back at work in roughly two weeks.

Tips for an effective recovery
Follow your doctor’s diet plan carefully
Don’t lift heavy items for at least six weeks
When you shower, be careful near the incision
Keep your follow-up appointments with your doctor
