Tired of trying every diet and exercise and still don’t get the results you are looking for? Feeling achy or rundown because you’re carrying too much weight? Obesity is one of the most prevalent causes of multiple diseases and conditions that afflict people in the United States today. If the traditional methods are not working, weight loss surgeries might be just the answer you are looking for. There are many treatments to choose from, the most common being:
- Weight-Loss Medications
- Bariatric Surgery
- Lap Banding
- Sleeve Gastrectomy
- Gastric Bypass Surgery for Obesity
These treatments are not for everyone. Weight loss therapies and treatment of obesity, and obesity surgery specialists are expensive in the U.S. Obesity and weight loss treatment and surgeries are generally only an option for people who are more than 100 pounds overweight. After a physician has suggested various types of weight loss methods such as dieting, behavior modification and exercise or even medications and they do not produce satisfying results, they will then determine if weight loss surgery is the answer. Surgical procedures are generally divided into three categories: malabsorption, restrictive, and mixed, or combination. The type of surgery any patient will undergo will depend on how much weight needs to be lost. Lap banding and gastric bypass (gastric bariatric surgery) are two of the most common surgeries.
Going through weight loss surgery helps patients reduce illness and even death in those who are extremely obese, as well as improving ailments such as high blood pressure, diabetes and other heart diseases.
