Happiness Starts with Good Health
If you’ve been struggling with your weight, you might also be struggling with self-confidence. It’s very tough to lose weight, even if you’re really committed. Obesity can lead to health issues like a bad back or high cholesterol, which can make the weight loss process even harder than it already is. Beverly Hills Physicians has a team of outstanding medical professionals who are dedicated to helping people from all over the world reach their goal weight. With expertly performed procedures like sleeve gastrectomy in Los Angeles, there’s no better place for bariatric surgery.
The two most popular weight loss surgeries are Lap Band and gastric sleeve. In order to qualify for bariatric surgeries like these, you must be medically considered severely obese, with a BMI of 40 or over. However, if you have an obesity-related illness like heart disease or diabetes and only have a BMI of 35 or over, you can also qualify for one of these surgical procedures. Once it’s determined that you qualify, the decision between the Lap Band and gastric sleeve procedures should be discussed with your Beverly Hill’s Physicians surgeon.
If you don’t end up qualifying for one of the surgical weight loss procedures, there are non-surgical options for people who aren’t quite considered severely obese. The gastric balloon procedure is something you might want to consider. Beverly Hills Physicians has a dozen different offices around Southern California, each staffed with the most dedicated and talented medical professionals around.
