Lap Band surgery requires a long-term commitment to a more active and healthy lifestyle and will likely include modifying your eating habits. To assist you with this transition, WeightLoss Solutions Australia offers a complete package that includes personalised support over the first 12 months.
Included in your Lap Band package are the following services:
- Unlimited consultations by phone, email, or face-to-face with patient liaison staff
- Unlimited monthly support from our dietitian and psychologist
- 3 group workshops with our psychologist and dietitian at 6 weeks, 6 months, and 12 months
- A comprehensive patient manual
To determine whether this weight loss surgery is the right option for you, and to assess your suitability, there are a number of pre-surgical consultations designed to prepare you for your weight loss journey. These consultations are not included in the surgical package. The assessment and planning process is carried out through consultations with members of our clinical team.
Step 1: Make contact with a member of our patient liaison staff, by telephone, email, or in person; they will guide you through the process. You can expect continued support from them in the months following surgery.
Step 2: Meet with the surgeon, dietitian, and bariatric psychologist before being scheduled for surgery. You will need a referral from your doctor before you can proceed with your appointment with the surgeon. The cost of all pre-surgical appointments is as follows:
- Surgeon: $170 (GP referral required – Medicare rebate applies)
- Dietitian consultation and assessment (45 min): $120 (Health fund rebate may apply)
- Psychologist consultation and assessment (50 min): $220.00 (Health fund rebate may apply)
Step 3: Once you have completed these appointments you will be booked in for surgery. Your surgical date may be as early as two weeks following these initial appointments, depending on any other pre-surgery requirements. We do our best to assist patients with a surgery date that best suits their needs and availability.
