How Bariatric Surgery Will Help you Love Yourself

Studies have shown that obesity can negatively impact one’s mental and emotional health.

Additionally, being overweight leads to more health issues including hypertension, arthritis, sleep apnea, high blood cholesterol, soft tissue infections, and type 2 diabetes.

Feeling down about yourself and having to manage your health issues can become overwhelming and mayl lead to increased depression, anxiety, and decreased self-esteem.

If you have not successfully lost weight and kept the weight off through dieting and exercising, you may benefit from bariatric surgery.

What is bariatric surgery?

Bariatric surgery is a longer lasting solution for weight loss. At New Life Center for Bariatric Surgery in Knoxville these are the criteria you must meet to qualify for bariatric surgery:

Have a Body Mass Index (BMI) over 35
Are experiencing severe negative health effects related to obesity, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, sleep apnea, and joint pain
Cannot achieve a healthy body weight for a sustained period of time, even with medically supervised dieting

Bariatric surgery is a comprehensive procedure in which you’ll work with different specialists before, during and after the procedure. The team of specialists offer support and help you develop specific diet and exercise plans that you will follow after surgery. These guided diet and exercise programs are also created to help you avoid any complications (e.g. nutrient deficiencies).

You will never be alone during the process! Bariatric surgery is a serious lifestyle change and we only want you to be successful.

How can bariatric surgery help you?

Patients who are morbidly obese develop comorbidities as a result of being overweight. Bariatric surgery is the only effective treatment for morbid obesity. It has been proven to improve hypertension, sleep apnea, type 2 diabetes, arthritis, and other comorbidities.

Patients who undergo bariatric surgery have reported achievements like improved blood cholesterol, and some reported no longer needing medications at all for some of their conditions.

With these improvements, bariatric surgery can make you feel like a new person. It can create new possibilities to what you can do and who you can be, not being limited – physically, mentally, and emotionally by obesity.
