What to Expect at Each Step of the Self-Pay Program

Step 1: Initial Consultation

You will meet Dr. Peterson via an online televisit from the comfort of your own home.  This consultation will be used to complete your medical history and detail our weight loss philosophy.

Step 2: Preoperative Testing

We will perform a body composition scan, basal metabolic rate (BMR) study, and labs. A cardiac workup is necessary on every patient and this may be completed by your personal cardiologist or as part of your FCWLC workup. These studies may be completed in your local area if you prefer.

Step 3: Follow-up Virtual Visit

This visit is designed to review the results of your pre-op studies and confirm your treatment plan.

Step 4: Pre-Op Virtual Visit

At your pre-op visit, Dr. Peterson will review the entire surgical process from pre-op to post-op, discuss all perioperative medications, and answer any last minute questions.

Step 5: Surgery Day

This is your surgery day! It will be completed as an outpatient procedure, so you’ll return home or to your local lodging, with a friend or family member to care for you. The entire day typically takes 5-6 hours in total.
