Take Charge of Your Weight Loss Today!
Tired of fad diets? No time for the gym between work obligations and home life? Suspicious of the many “fat-burning wonder supplements” being sold on TV and online? Gastric Sleeve Surgery is the help you’ve been waiting for.
What is Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy?
Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy is a safe, routine, and effective surgery designed to help you lose weight and get your life and health back on track! Gastric Sleeve Surgery is:
- the most common weight-loss surgery performed in the world today
- safe enough for children as young as five
- minimally invasive with a short recovery period
- linked to very few serious side effects in less than 5% of patients
How Does It Work?
This simple procedure consists of altering the stomach, making it look like a long tube—or a “sleeve”. The gastric sleeve surgery permanently reduces the size of your stomach to approximately four ounces, allowing you to feel fuller quicker. After the separation of the stomach into this smaller tube, the remainder is removed and your journey to a new and healthier you has begun!
Is Gastric Sleeve Surgery Right For Me?
Contrary to popular belief, you do not need to be dangerously overweight to qualify for Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy. Most insurance companies allow an individual with a BMI (Body Mass Index) of at least 30 or above to qualify for Gastric Sleeve Surgery consideration. In addition, individuals with a high BMI coupled with a serious weight-related health condition also usually qualify. If you want to feel younger, look your best, and enjoy life with more energy and determination, talk to your health care provider about your BMI to see if you qualify!
Do You Know Your BMI?
Although some people question whether Body Mass Index (BMI) is the most accurate way to determine whether someone is considered Normal Weight, Overweight or Obese, it remains the most important measurement in the eyes of insurance companies when determining whether someone is eligible for weight-loss surgery. Although each insurance provider has a different policy that is subject to change, the common qualifiers are as follows:
- A Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30-39.9* with one obesity related comorbidity that can include but may not be limited to Type II Diabetes, Obstructive Sleep Apnea, and/or Hypertension coronary artery disease
- A Body Mass Index (BMI) greater than or equal to 40
*Patients with a BMI of 30-34.9 are subjected to insurance discretion.
