Many operations have been developed to create weight loss. Gastric bypass and lap-band surgery have proven to be effective treatment for severe obesity, by allowing you to maintain a healthier diet and giving you the energy to exercise, which in turn leads to a healthier sustainable lifestyle.
Minimally Invasive Weight-Loss Surgery
These procedures are performed laparoscopically through several small incisions and typically only require one or two nights in the hospital.
In deciding to have surgery, one must weigh the risks of the procedure against the risk of not losing weight. Several large scientific studies have found people undergoing the surgery are more likely to be alive in five years then similar obese people who have not.
