Change the Way You See Yourself
If you’re unhappy with your weight, today is the day to start the journey to weight loss. For many people, diet and exercise don’t net the results they want. Either a lifetime of bad habits have made it tough to stick to a strict plan or genetics make it difficult to shed the pounds. Sometimes your excess weight creates medical problems that makes losing weight even harder, from bad knees to heart disease. At Beverly Hills Physicians we offer a selection of bariatric procedures like Lap Band and sleeve gastrectomy in Los Angeles.
Each type of weight loss procedure is extremely effective to losing large amounts of weight. It’s not a magical cure for obesity and you’ll still have to put in work to maintain your weight. However, these procedures are the perfect jump start to your weight loss path. For instance, BHP’s gastric sleeve gets rid of a part of the stomach that makes a hormone that creates the feeling of hunger and which can go into overdrive once we begin to lose weight. So, with a sleeve procedure, not only will your stomach hold less food, you very likely won’t have those overwhelming feelings of hunger to deal with.
The main types of surgical weight loss procedures are Lap Band and gastric sleeve. For those who won’t qualify for either procedure, the gastric balloon just may be the perfect option. A balloon is placed in the stomach and inflated for 6 months. It makes you feel full and lose weight faster than normal.
If any of these procedures sound interesting to you, call Beverly Hills Physicians today to set up a free initial consultation.
