The Bariatricbox is a full preparation for the surgery. Yes, you can start your bariatric process before the surgery with a Protein-sparing modified fast diet (PSMF) 2 to 3 weeks before the procedure. Studies have shown that weight loss prior to the surgery may reduce morbidity and may improve weight loss outcomes at 1 year follow up. Surgeons have been working with the Bariatricbox for the past three years in Europe and are very satisfied with its effects on their patients.
Moreover 5 to 10% preoperative weight loss leads to a shorter length of hospital stay and a more rapid postoperative weight loss.
But the main effect and the most positively recognized by the surgical community is the benefits of the Protein-sparing modified fast diet (PSMF) on the liver steatosis (fatty liver) because the Bariatricbox makes the procedure easier for the surgeon by reducing the size of the liver and by reducing the abdominal fat.
