While some people have no problem losing weight when they put effort in, others simply find it impossible to either lose weight or keep it off when they do. When you have struggled with losing weight for years, it can be difficult to think you may ever get out of the cycle of obesity. If diets keep failing you, there are other options to consider. One great option that has given success to many obese patients is weight loss surgery. If you are on the fence, below are some of the top benefits to take into consideration.
What Is Weight Loss Surgery?
Weight loss surgery, or bariatric surgery, involves a few different options that will help change the way in which you digest food. Some common types of surgery for weight loss are a gastric sleeve, gastric bypass and an adjustable gastric band. The surgery is a “tool” in which to help patients lead a more healthy lifestyle and has been known to help with a variety of other conditions related to obesity. Bariatric surgery has proven to help other issues such as heart disease, high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes.
One of the best benefits of weight loss surgery is that it can offer patients long-term success. Most individuals will lose around 50 percent or more of their body fat in one or two years after the surgery. It has also been estimated that more than 80 percent of these patients will keep it off in the long run.
Improve Your Longevity
Obesity and the health conditions that it leads to results in patients having shorter lifespans in general. When you consider getting weight loss surgery, you will be getting healthier and improving your longevity.
Resolving Or Improving Existing Conditions
Like stated earlier, there are many health issues and conditions that are a result of obesity. When you lose a significant amount of weight through a bariatric surgery, you will find that many of your obesity-related conditions start to either improve or resolve completely. You will be healthier and feel better after losing weight. After losing a significant amount of weight, you may see improvements in conditions such as arthritis, breathing disorders, venous stasis, high cholesterol, urinary stress disorders and more.
Quality Of Life
In addition to the improvements in your loss of weight and the obesity-related conditions that resolve, you will notice a much better quality of life. When you lose a significant amount of weight, it can affect your energy levels and your mental health as well. You may see improvements in your self-esteem, mobility and work or social interactions.
