Benefits & Results

Every surgical weight loss patient has a different perspective on how the surgery has changed their lives. The benefits may include improved self-esteem, being able to participate again in a hobby like hiking or running that they haven’t been able to do because of their weight, or even just being able to keep up with their child or grandchild. Every patient has his or her own story– a reason for having the surgery and a reason for why he/she is glad he/she did it.

From a medical standpoint, surgical weight loss may:

  • Reduce the need for prescription medications for chronic obesity-related conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes or high cholesterol levels
  • Increase your life span
  • Improve long-term weight loss results
  • Improve sleep by reducing or eliminating sleep apnea
  • Improve “mental health” as self-esteem increases
