Sleeve gastrectomy is now the most common operation performed for obesity in Australia. We have performed over 1500 Sleeve gastrectomy procedures since 2006.

Gastric Bypass Surgery

Laparoscopic (keyhole) gastric bypass is considered the “gold standard” obesity operation. It is particularly effective for patients with Type 2 diabetes.

In common with Surgeons in Australia and overseas we usually do not offer this as a first option. We remain happy to discuss this option with you.

Lifestyle change is the first line in the treatment of obesity. We have a team of dietitians, doctors, psychologists, exercise professionals and nurses who can work together to help you to get you on the right track to reach your goals.

  • How long will I have to wait for surgery?

    At LapSurgery Australia, we complete a comprehensive assessment of your health before surgery, especially weight loss surgery, so we can identify any risks and minimise these.

    If you decide to go ahead with weight loss surgery, we will arrange a comprehensive set of blood tests and and an appointment with a specialist physician experienced in preparing patients for surgery and minimising risks.

    We will also have you attend an assessment with our dietitian and psychologist to ensure that you are prepared for the dietary and psychological changes that come with surgery.

    If you have the appropriate level of health cover this process take about 4-6 weeks.

  • How long will I take to recover?

    We specialise in laparoscopic or ‘keyhole’ surgeries. Laparoscopic surgery is a surgical technique that reduces incision size and  hospital stay and speeds up recovery time. This means that, depending on your surgery, you can usually be recovered from surgery in 6 weeks. Recovery times vary so contact us for advice specific to your surgery and your situation.
