Jump Start Your Path to a Healthier Weight
Bariatric surgery is not a cosmetic procedure. Nor is it a mystical cure for obesity. It’s a surgical boost for a much needed lifestyle change to lead a healthier life. After getting weight loss surgery, you will need to continue to eat healthy and exercise to maintain your healthier weight, but the results will be worth the hard work. At Beverly Hills Physicians we are committed to helping our patients along the path to fighting obesity and starting a healthier life.
The major weight loss surgery options include Lap Band and gastric sleeve. Lap Band consists of placing a band around the upper part of the stomach in order to create a much smaller stomach pouch. The pouch fills up faster when you eat, so you feel full faster. The procedure is reversible and minimally invasive, meaning that your recovery time is much quicker. In the gastric sleeve procedure, a majority of the stomach is removed to create a sleeve-like shape. The major perk of this massive surgical option is that it also reduces the body’s reductions of important hunger producing hormones. If you’re unhappy with the results of Lap Band, you may be able to have Lap Band revision to gastric sleeve surgery with BHP later on.
