You see all those beautiful before and after pictures of people who have lost 50, 100, 150 pounds or more with the gastric sleeve surgery and then you start to dream about the results you'll achieve. You see yourself being thinner, able to do things that you couldn't do before, and immediately make plans for the procedure.
Then you hear it...those three words that make you start to wonder.
Results may vary!
Doesn't make you feel like you're going to get the results you really want does it?
Maybe you've read all these great testimonials or you've watched one or maybe all of our videos and say, “wow, I bet that can work for me too”. And honestly it can, if you follow the advice we give you. But, sadly we still have to use a disclaimer.
Aren't we confident in our abilities? Sure we are!
We even protect our patients with a 5 star unconditional guarantee.
…if we don't say those three words, people might assume that the results are typical for everyone. And, as much as I would love to tell people that they will experience what the next person did, everyone is different and yes, they'll receive different results.
I can't make patients into invincible superheros, give them the ability to leap tall buildings or run faster than a speeding locomotive. Although that would be cool. What I can give them is more time to enjoy life, make them healthier so they can go out and start running if they wanted to, or engage in activities that they only dreamed of doing.
To be honest, I would rather not have to use a disclaimer, you'd think that helping over 9000 patients we'd have a good understanding of what results can be achieved...oh, and we do...we just can't promise you that the results you achieve will be the same as someone else.
Remember not to compare yourself to others. Everyone is different, so individual results will vary. I can’t give you an exact figure of how much weight you will lose, nor how you will feel afterwards. What I can tell you based on experience, patient feedback and actual results is that you will feel and look amazing in a short time.
You will notice small changes right away, after a few months you will notice the weight rapidly dropping...it will feel good and you will feel healthy.
Yes, we have a disclaimer. But that shouldn't keep you from not wanting to explore what might actually happen if you looked at the gastric sleeve procedure as a tool to overcome your weight loss struggles.
My goal is to inform you of all the options, share with you what people are saying, give you the ability to change your life and to be a resource on your journey to be healthy. This is the primary reason I launched The #AskDrA Show so I could answer all the questions patients and non-patients alike were sending me. Questions about the procedure, dieting, vitamins, exercise and a whole lot more. I want the viewers to be informed, educated and knowledgable about who we are, what we do and how they will feel after surgery.
Don't let those three words, “results may vary” be what's stopping you from being thinner and healthier. And, if you ever have questions we are always here to help.
