Take control of your weight instead of the other way around
If you are struggling with obesity and your weight has been unresponsive to diet and exercise, you may be a candidate for bariatric (weight loss) surgery.
People who opt for weight loss surgery are consistently and reliably able to lose 50 to 90 percent of their excess weight—and achieve long-term results unmatched by typical weight loss programs.
Weight loss surgery can help:
- Improve health by reducing risk of diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and other obesity-related conditions
- Eliminate the need for chronic medications and machines (e.g., CPAP for sleep apnea)
- Improve quality of life including social relationships, mental and physical well-being, and sexual function
