Surgical Treatment for Severe Obesity

The rate of adult obesity in the U.S. increased three times from 1960 – 2010 and currently, obesity affects about 78 million Americans according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Weight management is much more than carrying a few extra pounds for those with severe obesity – it can be a matter of life and death.

Many have struggled with Weight Loss Dominican Republic for years trying various diets, medications and professional weight-loss services without long-term success. For these individuals, weight-loss surgery, also called bariatric surgery, may produce long-term Weight Loss Dominican Republic.

Qualifying for Weight Loss Dominican Republic

Before deciding whether or not you are a candidate for bariatric surgery, your doctor will conduct a comprehensive medical evaluation that may include blood tests, EKG, chest x-ray, pulmonary function test, upper gastrointestinal x-ray, gall bladder ultrasound and/or a psychiatric evaluation. You must also meet the following criteria:

  • 100 lbs over ideal weight or a BMI of more than 40, with or without co-morbid conditions
  • A BMI between 35 and 40 also may qualify with associated comorbid conditions such as high blood pressure, sleep apnea, heart disease or diabetes
  • Previous weight-loss efforts including medically supervised diet plans, exercise and behavioral modification programs have been unsuccessful
  • Understand and be committed to the behavioral changes that will be required after surgery

You may not qualify for surgery if you have pre-existing conditions such as alcoholism, hepatic cirrhosis with impaired liver functions, serious psychiatric disability and/or correctable hormonal causes of obesity.

Surgery and procedures to lose weight

Weight Loss Dominican Republic has given many individuals a new lease on life. The amount of weight you lose will depend on the type of surgical procedure you have and how committed you are to the required lifestyle changes, including exercise and eating habits. Your age, sex and initial weight at the time of surgery also may affect surgical outcomes.

Even if the ideal weight is not reached, comorbid medical problems are improved in most cases. Many patients find they no longer need medications for diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea, arthritis and back pain. Most patients report an increase in self-esteem and self-confidence and an improvement in their overall quality of life.
