Dieting, exercise, and medication have long been regarded as the conventional methods to achieve weight loss. Sometimes, these efforts are successful in the short term. However, for people who are morbidly obese, the results rarely last. For many, this can translate into what’s called the “yo-yo syndrome,” where patients continually gain and lose weight with the possibility of serious psychological and health consequences.
Recent research reveals that conventional methods of weight loss generally fail to produce permanent weight loss*. Several studies have shown that patients on diets, exercise programs, or medication are able to lose approximately 10% of their body weight but tend to regain two-thirds of it within one year, and almost all of it within five years. Another study found that less than 5% of patients in weight loss programs were able to maintain their reduced weight after five years*.
ver the years, weight-loss surgery has proven to be a successful method for the treatment of morbid obesity*. Surgical options have continued to evolve and Surgical Weight Control Center is pleased to be able to offer patients the Roux en-Y Gastric Bypass and BioEnterics LAP-BAND® System surgery. The Laparoscopic approach is the least traumatic and recovery time is a lot less. These procedures are unique tool that can help you achieve and maintain significant weight loss, improve your health, and enhance your quality of life*.
