Bariatric surgery can be an effective tool when trying to combat weight gain and obesity. Stomach intestinal pylorus preserving surgery (SIPS), sleeve gastrectomy and gastric bypass surgery all fall under the umbrella of bariatric surgery. Dr Kevin Dolan is one of the leading bariatric surgeons in the industry and his use of cutting-edge technology means you see results quickly. He will sit down with you, listen to you, understand your needs and design a personalised plan that will give you long-lasting health benefits.
Firstly, Dr Kevin Dolan will conduct a comprehensive health assessment to determine whether you are a candidate for weight loss surgery. Consultations will include a body composition analysis, nutritional screen and metabolic analysis. Body composition analysis is performed with seca, a cutting-edge tool that is useful in measuring the different components of your body.
The machine accurately breaks down weight into body compartments:
- Fat Mass
- Fat-Free Mass
- Body Water (made up of extracellular water and intracellular water)
- Skeletal Muscle Mass
These measurements are then processed by six analytical modules and presented on screen via graphics. After breaking down the weight into several components, Dr Kevin Dolan will work with you to come up with a treatment plan.
The assessment will provide an opportunity to address any fears or concerns you may have about undergoing bariatric surgery. Moreover, it allows you to join in the journey and help you understand the procedure, so you can make a fully informed decision about your future.
seca – Body Composition Analyser
Among many things, the body is comprised of fat mass and water. It is important to accurately calculate the valid composition measurements of your body to create a tailored treatment plan for you. This level of precision is important when calculating body composition of potential bariatric surgery patients. seca guarantees the patient is always measured in the right position. This is thanks to the hand-held electrodes which prevent measurement errors and in the large glass platform which is suitable for weighing patients up to 300 kilograms.
It is the only body composition analyser designed for medical use and renowned internationally as the gold standard for fat mass estimation. Over the course of several consultations and examinations, Dr Kevin Dolan will accurately evaluate the composition of fat in your body using seca.
We pride ourselves in exceeding patient’s expectations and achieving results that mean you will walk away with a body you can love.
