Educational Series Change



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.

There are a variety of diet programs and weight loss medications that can be effective, but not all of them are the best solution to cure obesity. Weight loss programs can cost up to $8,000 and many of them have no lasting results. And while weight loss medications can work for some in a controlled fashion, they can also be dangerous if prescribed via telehealth without the appropriate medical tests. In addition, studies show weight loss plans and medicine often result in only temporary weight loss and once the medication is stopped or the program is complete, people tend to regain the weight.
 
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. For many, the only way to truly lose weight and keep it off for good is to recalibrate your system with bariatric surgery.

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.

Kaleigh lost over 100 lbs. with weight loss surgery.*

“Life before my surgery was truly a night and day difference from where I am today. I was always tired, exhausted in fact, and spent the majority of my free time on the couch or napping to catch up for the next day. You can name every weight loss program, diet plan, lifestyle change, workout plan, etc. and I promise I have tried it and given it my all!” 

“My life now is such a joy, and a blessing that I don’t take lightly! I have so much more confidence and more importantly so much more energy and drive in my life than I can ever remember having before my surgery. I am 7 months post-op as of June 16, 2022 and I have lost 107 pounds!"
