Several recent news stories are stressing that roughly 5 percent of American children are now considered severely obese. While opinions differ about the best way to deal with the problem for young people, Beverly Hills Physicians would like to remind the public that obese children often become obese adults. Fortunately, there is a solution. Weight loss surgeries such as the gastric sleeve and the lap band have proven to be lifesaving for countless individuals. Whether a patient opts for minimally invasive, adjustable and reversible lap band surgery, a gastric bypass, or a sleeve gastrectomy, the benefits of weight loss procedures for adults are extremely clear.
It’s naturally distressing to hear about children suffering from health problems commonly associated with middle-aged adults. However, the outstanding weight loss staff of Beverly Hills Physicians realizes that severe obesity is often even more damaging for adults who have been living with these problems for years or decades. Especially after several attempts to lose weight through low calorie diets and significantly increased exercise, the reality is that sustainable weight loss for most people may never come without a surgical solution. Just as New Jersey Governor Chris Christie made international headlines a few months ago with his decision to obtain a lap band in order to maintain his health and wellbeing for the sake of his family, obese people need to consider what is most important to them.
While losing weight is never easy or automatic, no obese patient needs to go through their weight loss alone. Where patients obtain a bariatric procedure truly matters, and Beverly Hills Physicians offers complete support through every step of the weight loss process.
It begins with a patient’s first meeting with a bariatric surgeon. At the meeting, the surgeon will take a closely detailed look at the complete medical history of the patient to ensure that he or she is a true candidate for a weight loss procedure. The doctor will then discuss with the patient the various options that are available, and each procedure’s pros and cons.
The difference found at Beverly Hills Physicians continues throughout the recovery from a procedure and in the months that follow. Outstanding nutritionists and therapists are ready to help ensure that patients adjust to their new, post-surgery bodies and experience truly healthy, lasting weight loss. Moreover, BHP’s outstanding consultants are ready to provide help in terms of working with insurance companies and, where needed, structuring payment options that work within patients’ budgets.
Just because patients have been overweight for many years doesn’t mean that real and permanent change is off the table, especially with the outstanding support provided by Beverly Hills Physicians. If you are ready to explore a permanent solution to your lifelong weight problem, please call Beverly Hills Physicians at 1-800-788-1416 or visit www.beverlyhillsphysicians.com.
