Dr. Grandhige will sit down and extensively discuss all your options. Due to his fellowship training in bariatric surgery, he can discuss all approaches to weight loss with you, not just endoscopic options, helping to pick the right procedure for you is the first step in your success.
We provide one-on-one virtual sessions through our partnership with Brooke Sobh, a South Tampa concierge registered dietician, beginning one month prior to your procedure and for two years after. In conjunction with Dr. Grandhige, she will be with you every step of the way for 24 months. The first few months are exciting as you shed weight. By using this positive momentum as motivation, you will work to embrace the lifestyle. After the balloon is removed, she will take you through her carefully monitored reverse dieting protocol, which aims to increase your metabolism and adjust calorie intake to complement your new weight. In combination with our expertise, this long-term aftercare is unique to Formation and provides our patients with the support and tools to have long-term success.
