Weight Loss Surgery
Being overweight can put an unhealthy strain on the body and cause serious
health problems. Bariatric surgery offers new hope to those who struggle
with healthy weight management and includes reducing the size of the stomach
as well as helping to decrease the amount of food a person can eat, while
helping them feel full longer. Results can be dramatic, with patients
losing an average of 60-70 percent of excess body weight within twelve
to eighteen months after surgery. Overall, the goal of bariatric surgery
is to achieve and sustain a reasonable normal weight with a reduction
in health risk factors associated with obesity.
