Fad diets and exercise don't always work.
If you are are morbidly obese, which is described as being more than 100 pounds over your ideal body weight, surgery may be the best answer.
Surgery for the treatment of morbid obesity has been performed for over 20 years with continued improvements and refinements of surgical techniques. This has resulted in fewer complications and side effects.
Between 70 to 80 percent of patients having surgery for obesity can expect long term weight loss if they follow all the postoperative guidelines. Patients can also expect to either eliminate or reduce the severity of most of their health problems, such as high blood pressure, diabetes and joint pain. For almost all patients who succeed at losing weight after bariatric surgery, lifestyle improves along with self-esteem and many people resume a very active life.
