Benefits of Weight Loss Surgery
Weight loss surgery affects much more than a number on the scale. Obesity is often linked to other health problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, heart disease and even cancer. Losing weight can lower your risk of developing those conditions if you are not yet affected by them, and can lessen the symptoms or severity of conditions currently affecting your health.
Losing weight can also have a huge impact on your emotional well-being. After weight loss surgery, many patients are able to enjoy activities that have been off-limits for years, and most say they are more satisfied with their appearance and more confident presenting themselves to the world.
Our team of registered dietitians and nurse navigators will answer all of your questions about preparing for bariatric surgery, recovery time after weight loss surgery and whether your insurance policy will cover your weight loss procedure.
