All About Bariatric Weight Loss


Millions of people are considered obese based upon a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or higher. Being overweight increases your risk for heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes and other related health problems. The more excess weight you carry, the higher these health risks can be.

If your BMI is 30 or higher, there are many ways in which you could try to lose weight to reduce your BMI. Some people will find weight loss success by switching to a healthier diet and exercising, while others, despite their best efforts, may not be able to make any progress on their weight loss goals.

If this is the case for someone with either a BMI of 40 or higher, or 35 or higher with co-existing health problems, they could be an ideal candidate for various weight loss surgery options. Weight loss surgery requires a long-term commitment and dedication to lifestyle modifications to follow your new weight loss plan.

Successful results with weight loss surgery can be life-changing and include getting rid of excess body fat, reducing health-related risks, and slimming down to a healthier weight. There are three established safe and effective bariatric weight loss surgery options:

  • Laparoscopic Gastric Banding
  • Laparoscopic Gastric Sleeve Surgery
  • Gastric Bypass Surgery
