Benefits of Surgical Weight Loss

Obesity is not just a cosmetic problem. Obesity affects every aspect of a person’s life, and often family member's as well. While there are a number of diet plans circulating around, surgical weight loss shows the best results for achieving long term success.

Weightloss Surgery Can Effectively Treat Type 2 Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, and Sleep Apnea

Bariatric surgery has been documented as reducing premature death rates and improving, if not curing, the co-morbidities (other but related illnesses) associated with being obese. In studies involving weight loss surgeons, diabetes (type 2) has been shown to decrease dramatically in patients after bariatric surgery.

Moreover, patients have reported improvements with their type 2 diabetessleep apnea, hypertension, high blood pressure, and raised blood fats. We’ve also seen improvement with arthritis general pain, mobility, asthma, infertility, and lymphedema.

In addition to the medical benefits patients experience post surgery, there are a number of emotional stresses that bariatric surgery helps to resolve. While surgery will not make you a different person, you will have an improved ability to participate in recreational activities, and not fall victim to physical restrictions.

Of course, you already know that being obese is dangerous for your health and well being. Studies have shown that obese men and women earn (on average) $3.41 less per hour than their peers. This equals a loss of income of $7,093 per year. If you are ready to take the first step on the path to a healthy lifestyle, please click here to attend one of our free seminars in Mt.
