Making the Bariatric Surgery Decision
Are you trying to decide if weight loss surgery is right for you? Contact one of Beverly Hills Physicians’ many offices throughout Southern California to find out if you’re right for life-saving bariatric surgery. There are a couple of qualifications you must meet in order to get weight loss surgery, including having a BMI of 40 or more. However, if you have a BMI of 35 and an accompanying obesity related health risk like diabetes and heart disease you can also qualify.
One of the main reasons people get weight loss surgery like Lap Band or gastric sleeve is to see improvements in their health. Bariatric surgery won’t make you skinny, but it will reduce the risk of diabetes, heart disease, stroke, certain cancers, depression, and much more. When you lose weight, you will start to have more mobility, as well as less back and joint pain. However, since surgery isn’t a simple cure for obesity you’ll still have to work for it by eating healthier, exercising, taking nutrient supplements, and seeing the doctor regularly. A doctor at Beverly Hills Physicians can explain all of the necessary lifestyle changes you’ll need to make.
If you’ve had Lap Band surgery but weren’t satisfied with the results, that doesn’t mean you have to give up. Lap Band revision to gastric sleeve surgery is the revision procedure that can improve your weight loss results significantly. Call the offices of Beverly Hills Physicians today to get started on the path to a healthier life.
