New year, new you, new life!
If you are struggling to lose weight through conventional methods (i.e. diet and exercise), and have obesity-related health conditions, then you may qualify for bariatric or weight loss surgery.
What is bariatric surgery?
Bariatric surgery refers to different types of procedures that cause weight loss by restricting the amount of food your stomach can hold, malabsorption of nutrients, or a combination of these two.
There are different types of bariatric surgery, but the most common ones are gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, adjustable gastric band, and biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch.
Is bariatric surgery effective for weight loss?
Bariatric surgery is an effective way of losing weight and even in treating obesity-related conditions such as diabetes, sleep apnea, and high blood pressure.
Dr. K. Robert Williams of New Life Center for Bariatric Surgery says bariatric surgery is about changing people’s lives and health.
“Weight loss surgery is a life-long change. You’re not just performing a temporary procedure; you’re helping someone. They’re losing weight, their life is getting better, you are treating 5 to 6 medical problems and they’re living longer.”
