You are not alone if you struggle with serious weight problems. More than 95 million U.S. adults face the same challenge, and more than 10 million suffer from life-threatening obesity.
If you have tried less-extreme methods of weight loss and still find yourself unable to shed the necessary pounds to enjoy a reasonable quality of life, you could be a candidate for surgical weight control. In medical terms, this is called bariatric surgery.
Bariatric surgery changes your digestive system in order to reduce the amount of food your body can digest or to limit the amount of food you can take in at one time.
Surgical weight control is becoming more popular as the procedures become safer and more effective.
Bariatric surgery is typically considered either a restrictive procedure that reduces food intake or a malabsorptive procedure that alters digestion.
Choosing to undergo surgery for weight loss is a serious decision, but it can be a powerful move to improving the quality and length of your life.
