Appropriate attempts to achieve weight loss through a supervised healthy diet, a behavior modification regimen, exercise, and adopting a physically active lifestyle must be undertaken first.
Just as with every patient, undergoing bariatric surgery as an adolescent is a serious decision that requires careful thought, complete family support, lifelong follow-up, and a long-term personal commitment to a healthy lifestyle. With this in mind, young people who are severely overweight, are highly motivated, and have strong family support should inquire about this option. The Khalili Center is dedicated to the long-term success of our patients—at every age—and to supporting them in every way possible.
