There are a number of potential risks related to weight loss surgery, but we’ll talk you through these and any concerns you have during your consultations with us.
Below we discuss some of the associated risks, but we stress that they are uncommon, especially in the hands of the experienced bariatric team here at Blackrock WeightCare.
We’ll also discuss your estimated mortality risk if you undergo this surgery. The risk varies between patients depending on their weight and other health conditions. The average risk to life after bariatric surgery is around 1 in 500, to put this in perspective, the average risk of death after a hip replacement is 1 in 250. Overall, we emphasise that weight loss surgery has become extremely safe surgery with excellent outcomes
