Weight Loss Surgery That Actually Works
What’s keeping you from being happy? Sometimes, it’s our weight that prevents us from doing the things we really want to do – things like playing with the kids, going on vacation, or even simple every day errands— like taking care of the house and yard.
Our weight doesn’t just impact us now. Being overweight can limit the opportunities we have to enjoy the future. Obesity is a major risk factor for some really serious health conditions, including heart disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and sleep apnea. All of these conditions have the potential to end your life long before you reach some of the most meaningful milestones— like walking your daughter down the aisle, watching the grandkids grow up, and enjoying retirement.
Weight Loss Surgery Candidates
Bariatric surgery – aka weight loss surgery – is for people who want to live a longer, healthier life. You qualify as a candidate for bariatric surgery if:
- Your BMI (body mass index) is 40 or greater
- Your BMI is 35 or greater, and you suffer from one or more obesity-related health concerns
There’s a misconception that you have to be morbidly obese to qualify for bariatric surgery, but that’s not the case. If you’re strongly motivated to improve your health and want to live a fuller, longer life, weight loss surgery may be for you.
Gastric Sleeves, Gastric Bands & Revisions
Once you’ve decided to consider weight loss surgery as part of your journey toward wellness, the next step is to have a consultation with a skilled, experienced bariatric surgeon. The decision to opt for a Gastric Sleeve or Gastric Band includes taking into consideration your overall health and wellness, any presenting medical concerns, and other critical criteria.
