There are many ways to lose weight, including dieting, exercise, and even some medications that are approved for weight loss. For some of us, however, these options aren’t adequate to get started on the journey. When you need help achieving significant weight loss, weight loss surgery is an effective and safe way to achieve those goals and set yourself on a path to a healthier life.

If you’ve been thinking about looking into weight loss surgery, you might be unsure whether it’s the right choice for you. Perhaps you’re not sure if it will be sufficient, you’re wary of potential risks, or you just don’t know whether you’re a candidate.

Make the right decision for your weight loss goals by discovering how weight loss surgery could improve your health and lifestyle from the experts at BMI Surgery.

How Being Overweight Impacts Your Health and Lifestyle

A person that is overweight often encounters regular bodily pain and a reduced ability to function physically. The excess weight puts added stress on your joints and the cartilage that protects your bones, contributing to a multitude of issues in the body.
Some of the most frequent issues caused by extra weight include:

  • High blood pressure
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Coronary heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Sleep apnea
  • Some types of cancer

While these conditions are all different, the risks of each can be reduced through weight loss.

The Benefits of Weight Loss Surgery

Many people choose weight loss surgery, or bariatric surgery, to jumpstart their weight loss journey. Weight loss surgery can not only help you lose weight but also help you to ensure you keep the weight off once it’s gone, leading to better health for years to come.

Lose Weight and Keep It Off with Weight Loss Surgery

Surgery is generally recommended for people with a body mass index (BMI) of 35 to 40 or higher. Weight loss surgery is frequently recommended if you have further medical conditions related to obesity.

Weight loss surgery is just one part of a weight loss plan, however. You must maintain a healthy lifestyle including diet and exercise after recovery to maintain your results. We recommend learning more about nutrition and exercise prior to your bariatric surgery, so that it feels like second nature after the operation.

Improve Your Overall Health with Weight Loss Surgery

Weight loss surgery such as gastric sleeve and gastric bypass surgery help shed pounds by restricting the amount of food intake in the stomach. Through weight loss surgery, many medical conditions will improve, and you’re more likely to enjoy a number of other health & lifestyle benefits, too, such as:

  • Improved sleep
  • Better intimacy
  • Enhanced mood
  • Clearer skin
  • Alleviate stress & anxiety

Many patients report better quality of life after bariatric surgery and better overall health. A healthier, happier life is possible with weight loss surgery.
