Losing Weight Can Save Your Life
Today is the day you should start the path to being a healthier person. If you have trouble losing weight and a long history of bad eating habits, you could end up dealing with obesity-related illnesses like diabetes, high cholesterol, and heart disease. It can also hurt your mobility, which makes it harder to work or do much anything fun. Beverly Hills Physicians has a team of talented bariatric surgeons and wellness experts who are dedicated to helping your lead a healthier life with the best procedures like sleeve gastrectomy in Los Angeles.
Lap Band and gastric sleeve are two of the most commonly obtained weight loss surgery procedures. Lap Band is a surgery that can be reversible where a band is placed around the stomach to create a smaller pouch. Gastric sleeve is a permanent procedure in which a majority of the stomach is removed. However, this procedure also reduces levels of a hormone that produces feelings of hunger. In order to qualify for these procedures, you must be medically considered obese, with a BMI of at least 40, or 35 with related health problems.
However, if you don’t qualify you may very likely qualify for the new gastric balloon procedure, which is temporary and non-surgical. Whether you want to get gastric sleeve or gastric balloon, Beverly Hills Physicians can help you lose weight. We offer the services of some of the leading specialists in the field, with a team that’s dedicated to helping you with whatever tools you need to lose weight. We also provide follow up care throughout the entire weight loss process to help make sure you stay on track. Call today to set up a free consultation at one of our many convenient locations.
