You’re not alone! Being overweight can take a heavy toll on your life—did you know that weight-related health problems can take up to 15 years off your life expectancy? Ask yourself what is it that you live for. Seeing your kids grow up? Perhaps seeing your grand kids graduate from high school or college? Perhaps it’s something else entirely; perhaps you’d like to do certain activities again that you can no longer do because of your weight. Well, don’t delay a minute longer—the time to achieve permanent weight loss is NOW. The longer you wait and the longer you struggle with your weight, the shorter your life will be. Bariatric surgery is the ONLY known treatment proven to be effective for long-term weight loss. Have you wondered if surgery is right for you or wondered whether it’s safe and effective? Due to advancements in minimally invasive surgery and national safety and quality initiatives, Bariatric surgeries have become some of the safest procedures available today—the risks are about the same as undergoing orthopedic surgery.
