Bariatric surgery is an option if you are obese and have not been able to lose enough weight to improve your health using diet and exercise, or have serious obesity-related health problems such as high blood pressure, heart disease, type 2 diabetes and sleep apnea.
In addition to weight loss and the improvement of these conditions, there are many more benefits to bariatric surgery including an improvement in your quality of life. You’ll likely experience increased mobility, more energy, a higher self-esteem, become more confident with social interactions, and have an improved sexual drive.
