Is Bariatric Surgery Right for You?

Bariatric surgery is the only effective method of sustaining weight loss for people with severe obesity. According to the National Institutes of Health, bariatric surgery restricts the size of the stomach and limits the sensation of hunger. This means you feel full after eating less food. The reduction of calories consumed helps speed the weight loss along.

Looking better is not the only benefit. Bariatric surgery can reverse or improve type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, sleep apnea, and help prevent other disabling conditions.

Have you struggled with weight loss through diet and exercise? If you can answer Yes to some of the following questions, bariatric surgery may be right for you.

  • Are you 18 years or older?
  • Do you have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 40 or more?
  • Do you have a BMI of 35 or more, plus a life threatening, obesity related health condition such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, obstructive sleep apnea or heart disease?
  • Have you unsuccessfully attempted to lose weight in the past?
  • Does your weight cause physical problems that interfere with mobility, recreational activities, work or family?
  • Do you suffer from other obesity related health problems such as joint disease or infertility?
