​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Weight Loss Surgery Options

Bariatric surgery can help you become healthier and live a longer, more fulfilling life. Success requires permanent lifestyle changes and long-term, follow-up care. Bariatric surgery works by either altering the amount of food you eat, changing the way your body absorbs nutrients or both.

Because bariatric surgery limits the nutrients you can consume, patients are at risk for vitamin and mineral deficiencies if they do not include dietary and nutritional supplements in their daily routine.

Surgery of any kind is serious and involves a measure of risk. You should consider the benefits, risks, your expectations and possible complications of weight loss surgery, and discuss these topics with your physician and your family before deciding whether a surgical solution is best for you.

It’s important to understand what bariatric surgery is not:

  • Weight loss surgery is not cosmetic surgery.
  • Weight loss surgery does not involve body contouring or the removal of adipose tissue (fat) by suction or excision.
  • Although reversible, weight loss surgical procedures generally are not reversed after weight loss.  
  • The success of weight loss surgery is dependent upon the patient making long-term lifestyle changes. 
  • Weight loss surgery is not a replacement for portion control or exercise.

I’ve been overweight my entire life. I started gaining weight in third grade. I've tried every imaginable diet. I would lose about 60 pounds and gain it back. I tried out for “The Biggest Loser” and didn’t make it.

My mother was on dialysis for five years. She had kidney disease and needed a new kidney. I was not a candidate to donate a kidney to her because of my high body mass index (BMI).
