Weight Loss and Bariatric Surgery
Considering Weight Loss Surgery?
If you have struggled with diet and exercise for years, and traditional means of weight loss have not worked out for you, weight loss surgery may be the answer you're looking for. Weight loss surgery (also known as Bariatric Surgery) is available for anyone living in Totowa, Wayne, Paterson, or any of the surrounding areas if they have a BMI of over 40, or a BMI of over 35 with other comorbidities. There comes a point where carrying too much weight becomes quite dangerous to your health. These dangers can include developing heart disease, diabetes, kidney disease, and high blood pressure.
Weight loss surgery, when paired with good nutrition, has been shown to help you lose weight and keep the weight off. It has also been shown to reduce multiple health problems, and help cut back on any prescribed medication. You will continue to work with a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist before and after surgery. Although surgery makes it easier to lose weight and keep the weight off, nutrition still plays a vital role in your success. Talk to your doctor or your Registered Dietitian Nutritionist to see if weight loss surgery is right for you.
