The obvious answer is…you get thinner, right? And that would be true. When you lose the weight you do get thinner, we can’t argue with that. That’s just common sense.
But there’s so much more!
Did you know losing the weight also brings about so many health benefits? Oh, yes. And those health benefits can be life changing.
Imagine living your life where you don’t have to worry about asthma, GERD, sleep apnea, cardiovascular disease, depression, hypertension, Type 2 Diabetes, migraines or even gout. Sounds wonderful doesn’t it? Well it can be. Losing weight brings the possibly of living without those things closer to reality.
But don’t take my word for it, here are some statistics…
Obstructive Sleep Apnea…74-98% resolved.
Asthma… 82% improved or resolved.
Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease…90% improved steatosis, 37% resolution of inflammation
Cardiovascular Disease…82% risk reduction
Metabolic Syndrome…80% resolved
Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus…83% resolved
Stress Urinary Incontinence… 44-88% resolved
Degenerative Joint Disease…41-76% resolved
Venous Stasis Disease…95% resolved
Quality of Life…improved in 95% of patients
Mortality…85% reduction in 5-year mortality
“Resolved” means that those symptoms are no longer an issue in that percentage of patients.
But how much weight must you lose before you’ll notice a difference?
Well, everyone is unique and results vary.
On average those experiencing just a 10% weight loss ratio will start to notice changes in how they feel. And the more weight lost, the more improvements to your health overall.
That’s where bariatric surgery (also known as weight loss surgery) comes in.
For those who have tried all the diets, have tried the crazy exercise programs and have faced frustration after frustration without seeing any tangible weight loss results…the gastric sleeve is that tool that will help you change your life.
I know, I know…coming from a bariatric weight loss doctor you might expect me to say stuff like that just so you become my patient. Well, my goal is to educate first so you make the right decisions. So, whether you use my services or that of another surgeon you have the facts and understand how the surgery works and how it can benefit you.
Now, I will say this…
Out of the 11,000 patients I’ve helped, I can’t think of a single one who just wanted to be thinner. Every single one wanted to either live longer, improve their quality of life, sleep better at night or rid themselves of GERD, hypertension, migraines or other weight related health issues.
If you’d like to learn more about the benefits of the gastric sleeve procedure and how it could change your life for the better, I invite you to check out our YouTube and watch the hundreds of educational videos we have on our channel. I would also recommend to you that you get social with us on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter. And if you Snapchat you can connect directly me and see how I snap through the day.
And when you’re ready, come back to our website to begin your weight loss journey.
Saving lives…one sleeve at a time.
