General Patient Process
Lighter Dream Bariatrics takes all the guess work out of scheduling your surgery date. We walk you through each step from beginning to end with our Bariatric Patient Process. There are three simple steps to scheduling: Get Approved, Pick a Date, Pay Deposit! Start your Bariatric Patient Process Today.
Submit a health questionnaire to see if you are approved for weight loss surgery and to see what surgery is best for you. Once the health questionnaire is reviewed by a surgeon your patient coordinator will get a hold of you.

Pick a Date
At this point, you will discuss with your patient coordinator surgery dates that are best for you. Your patient coordinator will confirm availability for you.

Preparing for Your Bariatric Surgery Date
Once you are scheduled, your patient coordinator will email you your Bariatric Patient Process and a break down of everything you need to know for the days to come. Closer to the surgery date, your nutritionist will email you the preoperative diet as well.
All documents are due 15 days before surgery. Documents needed are as followed:
- Proof of full payment
