Bariatric Surgery and your Health
When you’re struggling with obesity, you also are dealing with a plethora of additional issues. Self-confidence can be impaired in professional and social situations, which can negatively affect your life in many ways, from dating to promotions. But most importantly, being overweight comes with a myriad of health issues. Obesity has been connected to an increase risk in cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. The only way to reduce these risks is by losing weight, but that’s vastly easier said than done. However, with the help of Beverly Hills Physicians, weight loss surgery can make your fight against obesity much more winnable.
The two most popular weight loss procedures are Lap Band and gastric sleeve surgery. Lap Band consists of placing an adjustable band around the stomach. This surgery has proven to be popular because it’s less invasive than older procedures and removable. However, many patients at Beverly Hills Physicians choose to have revision weight loss surgery because they weren’t satisfied with the results of Lap Band. Gastric sleeve revision often has more significant weight loss results, due to the removal of a large portion of the stomach and known hormonal benefits. However, the choice is ultimately up to the individual.

When you set up a free initial consultation, you can discuss the different options and go over your medical history to see which choice is right for you.
