Why Have Weight Loss Surgery?
Bariatric surgery is a tool to assist you in weight loss. Many of the benefits of bariatric surgery are related to improvement in other medical conditions as a result of the weight loss. Conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea, and high cholesterol may be resolved or improved after surgery. These are just a few reasons to answer the question: why have surgery?
Surgical weight loss may also provide significant health benefits and allow you to:
- Feel better.
- Have more energy.
- Reduce your cholesterol levels.
- Improve or resolve type 2 diabetes.
- Decrease your risk of heart disease, stroke, fatty liver disease, osteoarthritis and gastroesophageal reflux.
- Improve your breathing and mobility.
Our patients also describe to us an improved quality of life and the ability to participate in activities that were too difficult prior to their weight loss surgery and then their weight loss.
If you have been unsuccessful losing weight long term through diet and exercise and are able to commit to long-term medical follow-up, as well as the lifestyle, dietary, and exercise changes necessary to maintain health after surgery, then weight-loss surgery might be an option for you.
