Get to a Healthy Weight Fast with Gastric Bypass in CA
If you have failed at diet programs or even a medically-supervised weight loss regimen and have a significant amount of weight to lose, talk to Dr. Haiavy about gastric bypass surgery in CA. Gastric bypass surgery can trigger rapid weight loss and may be just what you need to get to and maintain your ideal weight. If you have a body mass index (BMI) of 35 or more and are experiencing some of the many health problems associated with obesity, consider the physical and psychological benefits of weight loss surgery.
Is Gastric Bypass Right for Me?
The gastric bypass procedure involves dividing the stomach and connecting the smaller pouch created from the division to the small intestine. Since the stomach is now restricted, you can only eat about a cup of food at a time. Another outcome of this procedure is that fats and starches aren’t always absorbed so you will end up losing a significant amount of weight. Most patients who undergo this procedure experience dramatic weight loss during the first six to 12 months of surgery. We have found that many patients end up losing as much as six pounds per week, depending on their weight.
Gastric bypass in CA may be the right weight loss procedure for you if:
- You have a BMI of 35 – 40 and you are experiencing health problems such as high blood pressure or Type 2 diabetes
- You have been unsuccessful with traditional diet and exercise regimens
- You have not been able to achieve results with a medically-supervised weight loss program
We need to consider several factors during a patient evaluation for any type of weight loss surgery. Even though you may meet all of the physical requirements to have surgery, we need to review your psychological status, your age, and your motivation for undergoing surgery. Gastric bypass patients need to be willing to adopt new eating habits after their procedure and learn how to eat smaller amounts of food over the course of the day. Extreme weight loss can have many psychological and emotional effects which need to be addressed before or after the weight comes off.
