MAKING A DIFFERENCE THROUGH BARIATRIC SURGERY
If you are morbidly obese and willing to make a revolutionary change in your life quality, health and life expectancy, you certainly are a candidate for weight reduction surgery!
Often referred to as “bariatric surgery”, weight reduction operations continue to transform the health and lives of hundreds of thousands of morbidly obese patients for the better. Besides the aesthetic and life quality benefits it provides, it has been clearly shown that weight reduction surgery increases life expectancy around 15 years.
Scientific evidence from the Swedish Obese Subjects and Utah/U.S. studies clearly showed that bariatric surgery extends life! In other words, besides providing substantial weight loss in obese people who cannot achieve permanent long-term success with other weight loss techniques, longevity will also increase by bariatric procedures. The most important benefit of these surgeries is that obesity related life-threatening health conditions such as type 2 diabetes, hypertension, liver disease, dyslipidemia, polycystic ovarian syndrome, and sleep apnea can be totally reversed.
Furthermore, in women, it is shown that bariatric surgery decreases the risk for developing breast cancer.
