Looking to lose weight and get healthy once and for all?

Stop chasing diet plans and spending thousands of dollars on weight loss gimmicks with results that are only temporary. It can be costly and ineffective.

Weight loss programs can cost up to $8,000 and many of them have no lasting results. Perhaps they work for the first few months, then gradually all the weight comes back. If you are having a hard time losing weight and keeping it off, you’re not alone. For many people the only way to truly lose weight and keep it off is to recalibrate your system with minimally invasive weight loss surgery. The body finds a 'natural set point’ or body-fat-level and maintains that point within its environment. Diets may temporarily alter this point, but generally the body will return to its natural set point.

Bariatric surgery may change the way the body responds to the environment. i.e. changing the 'natural set point' for a body. Instead of fighting the set point like a diet does, surgery may recalibrate it by altering the hormones that stimulate weight gain. After surgery a body regulates itself to a new set point, allowing the patient to lose weight.

What weight loss surgery can do for you.
Portion
Portion Control =
Fewer Calories
In each of these gastric procedures, the patient feels full faster as a significant potion of the stomach is removed or restricted from use as a result of the procedure.
Suppression
Appetite
Suppression
Also common to the Gastric Sleeve and the Gastric Bypass is the absence of the "hunger hormone" which blunts the appetite significantly.
Recovery
Laparoscopic =
Faster Recovery
Laparoscopic surgery is a minimally invasive technique where a video camera and surgical instruments are inserted through small abdominal incisions. Compared to open surgery, benefits may include a marked decrease in appetite.
Diabetes
Type II Diabetes
Cure
Evidence shows that the Gastric Sleeve cures 90% of Type II diabetes patients and Gastric Bypass cures 95% of patients in the first 12 months. These are just two of the many life-changing, life-extending statistics of losing weight.
