Is Bariatric Surgery Right for You?

Benefits of Bariatric Surgery

If you are considering bariatric surgery, it is likely that you have been struggling to control your weight for quite some time, if not for much of your life. You may feel as if you are trapped in a weight gain cycle, making numerous unsuccessful weight loss attempts – that ultimately end in disappointment or weight increase.

But there may be a reason for this. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), individuals affected by severe obesity may be resistant to maintaining weight loss achieved by conventional therapies, such as consuming fewer calories, increasing exercise, commercial weight-loss programs, etc. The NIH has recognized bariatric (weight-loss) surgery as the only effective treatment to combat severe obesity and maintain weight loss in the long term.

Bariatric Surgery and Related Health Issues

When combined with a comprehensive program of weight loss support, bariatric surgery can provide the catalyst to reach your long term weight loss goals.

It has been shown to help improve or resolve many obesity-related conditions, such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, sleep apnea and more. Often, patients who lose a significant amount of weight are able to lessen or eliminate medications for weight-related health problems.
