Bariatric Surgery may be an option for people who are severely obese, suffer from weight-related problems or who cannot lose weight by traditional methods. Surgery promotes weight loss by restricting food intake or by interrupting the digestive process.
To be a candidate for bariatric surgery, you must:
- be 100 pounds or more overweight
- have a body mass index (BMI) over 35
- have made multiple attempts to lose weight by non-surgical means
Even with bariatric surgery, the best results are achieved by eating appropriately, modifying behavior and participating in regular physical activity. Precision Surgical Center of Dallas, Texas is committed to helping our patients achieve their weight loss goals. Register to attend a free weight loss seminar today.
