Why should I Consider Surgery? 

Weight Loss Surgery Center: 469.814.5677

If you have unsuccessfully tried diet and exercise—and if you meet the other criteria for surgical weight loss - it may be time for you to take control of your weight through bariatric surgery. 

Being overweight or obese can lead to serious health issues, such as:

  • High blood pressure
  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Pulmonary disorders
  • Depression
  • Joint and/or back problems 

According to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), bariatric surgery patients lost between 62 and 75 percent of their excess weight. Many of these patients also experienced[i]:

  • Type 2 diabetes remission
  • Significant blood pressure improvement
  • Lower cholesterol
  • Elimination of sleep apnea
  • Joint disease, asthma and infertility improvement 

Of course, you will want to talk with your doctor about the potential benefits—as well as the potential risks and complications—of any bariatric surgery procedure.
