Authors Nick Nicholson, M.D. and B.A. Blackwood writes a very informative and insightful book to help the reader explore the various pros and cons of weight loss surgery. The reader will receive views from both a doctor and a lawyer that will enable them to see the physical, mental, financial and relational issues that could arise from such a surgery. There is the discussion of the various types of weight loss surgery and things a person should consider before, during and after the surgery. The physical appearance of someone experiencing this type of surgery is usually extreme, yet the emotional and relational issues are very real and very important to consider before this type of surgery as well. There are things to consider such as a couples relationship and how this type of surgery might impact that relationship. Should a couple not have a strong relationship prior to the surgery this might be a very difficult transition.
"Weight Loss Surgery: The Real Skinny" is a very well written book that will help provide informative information to the reader of things they may not have considered otherwise, thus making an easier transition should they follow though with surgery. Authors Nicholson and Blackwood educate the reader and provides helpful advice that doctors should consider using this as a tool for their patients who are considering weight loss surgery.
