The benefits of weight loss are measured in more ways than just waist size. A healthy weight also improves overall health and quality of life.

If you’re overweight, you increase your risk for many health conditions. Getting down to a healthy weight can stave off those dangerous health conditions and put you back where you belong. 

It’s never too late to make a healthy change — just think how you could be living. If being overweight ever becomes a part of your life that you can’t seem to conquer, we can help you make a change.

If you’d like to know more, attend an informational seminar or call 805.332.8446.

Facts About Obesity

  • Life-threatening obesity is defined as 100 pounds above ideal body weight or a BMI (body mass index) greater than 40
  • Patients with life-threatening obesity die an average of 12-15 years earlier than people of normal weight

Patients with life-threatening obesity suffer from multiple medical conditions that affect nearly every organ system in their body, including:

  • Type II diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Elevated cholesterol
  • Arthritis
  • Depression
  • Cardiac disease

Facts About Bariatric or Weight Loss Surgery

  • Bariatric surgery is the cure for life-threatening obesity
  • Bariatric surgery is not cosmetic surgery
  • Diet and exercise alone have shown long-term effectiveness in only 5 percent of patients. Bariatric surgery provides long-lasting weight loss
  • Successful weight loss from bariatric surgery can eliminate other medical conditions 
  • The risks of bariatric surgery are far less than the risk of living with life-threatening obesity
  • Bariatric surgery requires a major, lifelong commitment to changing diet and behavior
