You will then be contacted with Destination Beauty, discussing your options.

Next step is to get a referral from a GP and start the screening process, this usually includes a blood test and a swallow test.

You will be asked to complete a detailed questionnaire before your first consult with the screening doctor, which is typically an endocrine doctor.

If you are high risk for sleep apnea you will be requested to undergo a sleep study, this can be done as an at home sleep test.

The screening endocrine doctor will carry out the first face to face consult or tele meeting with you once test results and questionnaire is complete. The screening doctor will refer to dietician and surgeon for consults as well.

Once the screening is successfully completed and you confirm to go ahead with surgery, the surgery will be booked.

You will be admitted into hospital and undergo surgery.

If you live outside Sydney you should stay in a hotel for minimum 5 nights after surgery. If you live in Sydney you can recover at home after discharge from hospital.

There will be follow ups with the surgeon and team after surgery.
