Why Choose Bariatric Surgery ?

For those that struggle with obesity, the daily strain of dealing with the weight can be overwhelming at times. Dieting and exercise may have failed to make a dent, and the scale seems determined to report the same discouraging numbers despite all efforts.
In such cases, weight loss surgery may represent one of the most effective, proven treatments available to combat late-stage obesity. When paired with comprehensive weight loss counseling and weight management therapy, bariatric surgery can help get you back on track to a healthier lifestyle.

Benefits of bariatric surgery
  • Long term weight reduction
  • Shed as much as 50% of excess weight
  • Improvement in type 2 diabetes
  • Improvement in hypertension
  • Lowered risk for heart disease
  • Less need for obesity-related pharmaceuticals
  • Increased self-confidence and well being
  • Reduction in stress levels through a decrease of the hormone cortisol
  • Lowered insulin, leading to more stable blood sugar levels
  • Greater longevity
Why bariatric surgery works

Weight loss surgery (bariatric surgery) works because it physically appends your stomach’s anatomy, restricting overeating and thus weight gain. Hunger is reduced, and a sensation of fullness becomes the norm. As weight loss ensues, you become more physically active, setting a positive cycle of continuous fat-burning in motion.

In addition to the physical changes possible, weight loss surgery can lead to a renewed joy in being alive, enhanced self-esteem, and improved social relationships, both at home and in the workplace. Clothes fit better, and going out in public is more pleasant. Emotional symptoms of obesity such as anxiety and depression are also greatly reduced.
