Why You Should Lose Weight Ahead of Surgery.

Do I Need To Lose Weight before Hip Replacement Surgery? You can’t underestimate the importance of losing weight before knee or hip surgery. Carrying excess weight places additional pressure on the joints. Additionally, it has a negative effect on post-operative care. It increases both recovery time, and risk of infection. Some surgeons impose a weight limit for hip replacement patients.

Reduce the pressure on your joints

Before your hip or knee surgery, you can help the process by losing excess weight. Your surgeon may have already mentioned this. If you lose weight before hip surgery, your joints will be under much less strain. As a result, your knee, or your hip, will not need to work so hard. Also you will have a better chance to heal and regain full mobility.

Reducing your weight can help prevent complications during surgery

Being overweight can lead to complications in surgery. Many surgeons will not operate on a patient if their weight is too high. A successful operation depends on the level of anaesthetic drugs. The amount of anaesthesia a person needs is calculated using their weight. Unfortunately, the more you weigh, the more complicated the calculations.  A higher level of body fat can make it harder to find a vein too.

Takes the pressure off your heart

Being overweight means you are at risk of cardiac problems. Surgery puts a lot of pressure on the body, and the cardiovascular system. So, if you are overweight, you are at a much higher risk of developing cardiac issues, during, and after surgery. These include heart attacks, strokes, angina, blood clots and high blood pressure. Consequently, losing weight before an operation could save your life.

Post Surgery Benefits of Losing Weight

If your overweight, you have an increased risk of infection. This could delay your recovery, and even see you re-admitted back into hospital.

The Top Four questions people ask us

How fast can I lose the Weight?

The rate at which someone loses weight ahead of hip or knee surgery varies considerably. It is based on many factors. For instance, how heavy the person is at the outset, and also how mobile they are. In the first few weeks the weight loss is often dramatic. After that you can expect to lose around two pounds per week.

Why Do I have to Lose Weight Ahead of Surgery?

Some surgeons insist that their patients lose weight ahead of surgery. There are a number of reasons for this. Firstly, the greater risks associated with an overweight person having a general anaesthetic. Also, obesity increases the potential risk of infections. And of course it creates a longer recovery time. You can read a page all about Gastric Band Surgery.

Will the Weight Loss be Permanent?

In answer to the question if the weight loss achieved will be permanent, it depends on your commitment. Your replacement hip or knee will, of course, last considerably longer. Your general mobility will improve, along with all aspects of your health and well-being.

Is Surgery Possible without Weight Loss?

Is There a Weight Limit For Hip Replacement Surgery?

Of course surgery is possible without losing excess weight. But why would you allow that situation to happen? You have read about all of the issues. If you have surgery whilst obese, there are very real risks. Your surgeon has explained how much faster and less painful your recovery will be. Choosing a proven weight loss treatment may be just as life-changing as the surgery.

Do I Need To Lose Weight before Hip Replacement Surgery

Tip No. 1 – Only Eat When You’re Hungry!

This has to be our number one, golden rule, when it comes to achieving successful weight loss. In our experience, most overweight people eat for many different reasons, other than physical hunger. But, if you allow your emotions to control your eating habits, then it is unlikely that you will be able to control your weight as a result. So, before you reach for anything to eat, stop and ask yourself first if you physically NEED to eat, or you just WANT to…

Tip No. 2 – Stay Away From Sugar and Highly Processed Foods!

It’s a fact that sugar and highly processed foods have addictive properties! So much so, that many people find that once they start eating these foods, they literally can’t stop. And, of course, if you’re making such poor food choices, this in turn will make it almost impossible for you to lose weight. So, our advice is to choose healthy, unprocessed foods and limit the amount of sugar you consume. As a result, you will have far more control over how much you eat and also how much weight you can lose.

Tip No. 3 – Use a Smaller Plate!

You’ve probably heard this many times before, but it’s a fact that people who use larger plates tend to eat more food than those who eat from smaller plates. No doubt you know about the power of optical illusions. But are you aware of just how much more generous the same size portion of food appears, when it’s arranged on a smaller plate, instead of a larger one? Have a look at the image below. It’s known as the Delboeuf optical illusion. If you stick to our mantra, “always go for quality over quantity”, then you will definitely lose weight much more easily.
