*People who are considering having weight loss surgery are often surprised to discover that they have Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease, also known as NAFLD. They are usually still absorbing this news when their physician informs them that this condition may make their surgery more complicated.
If you have NAFLD, your liver becomes larger than it would normally be. This larger liver is a serious problem for bariatric surgeons. Because it obscures their work area, it increases surgical difficulties and it extends the amount of time it takes to perform the surgery. All of these factors increase the risks factors involved in any form of surgery. In worse case scenarios, an enlarged liver can even force the surgeon to abandon using a minimally invasive procedure and resort to cutting the patient open to accomplish the surgery.
Fortunately, clinical research has shown that short duration, acute weight loss may be very effective in reducing liver volume. This reduction makes bariatric surgery easier, faster and safer.
A recent multidisciplinary study concluded that "a 2 week pre-operative diet with Bariatric Advantage High Protein Meal Replacements provided major reductions in liver volume in association with modest weight loss."
