Bariatric & Banding Weight Loss Surgery
The outstanding doctors and medical staff of Beverly Hills Physicians understand that the decision to obtain weight loss surgery is serious business. It’s an absolute fact that being seriously overweight puts your health and your life at risk. Heart disease, stroke, cancer…the list of devastating health conditions that can severely reduce both the length and quality of your life is long and terrifying. At the same time, even regular exercise and a sensible reduced calorie diet don’t end the long term struggle with obesity for many. Bariatric surgery has helped countless patients break the often destructive cycle of dieting and disappointment. Procedures like the gastric sleeve, Lap Band, and Roux-en-Y gastric bypass change the way we relate to food on a primary level, making significant weight loss vastly less difficult. Even so, the decision to go ahead with a bariatric procedure should never be made lightly.
The widely acclaimed medical team at Beverly Hills Physicians understands that where you go to obtain weight loss surgery matters a great deal. That’s why we are dedicated to providing the very highest standard of care throughout the weight loss process. Our surgeons are the very finest practitioners of all weight loss surgery options. When necessary, our surgeons are also highly experienced at revision surgery to correct ineffective bariatric procedures performed elsewhere. Once a surgery is completed, however, our job is only beginning. We work continually with our patients to make sure their recoveries are smooth and that they stay on a proper diet and fitness plan. Long after a weight loss surgery is complete, our patients are maintaining a healthy weight and enjoying a far more active and dynamic lifestyle than before their surgery.
If your BMI (body mass index) is at least 30 and accompanied by weight-related health issues, or if it’s 40 or over even without any currently existing health problems, you are likely a candidate for weight loss surgery.
