Lead a Healthier Life
Bariatric surgery is generally intended for people who have been struggling with obesity for at least 5 years. If diet and exercise alone haven’t made much of a dent in your weight loss goals, weight loss surgery with Beverly Hills Physicians may be your best option. You must be over 18 years old with a BMI over 40 or more. However, if you have a BMI of 35 or more along with an obesity connected illness, such as hypertension or diabetes, you may also qualify.
There are many benefits to weight loss surgery. Losing weight can reduce your risk of certain cancers and illnesses, lower your danger of depression, and decrease back, neck, and joint pain. The gastric sleeve procedure has the added benefit reducing the body’s production of hunger stimulating hormones, so that you don’t feel hungry as often. Lap Band surgery is minimally invasive and can be reversed if needed. However, despite the many advantages of bariatric surgery, it isn’t a cure for obesity. With the help of your Beverly Hills Physicians surgeon, you will also have to change your lifestyle to make healthier choices.
