potential weight loss from bariatric surgeryLosing weight can be a challenge. Even if you eat healthy and exercise, it can be difficult to shed pounds and overcome the health problems associated with excessive weight. That’s why many people undergo bariatric surgery to lose a lot of weight. Undergoing weight loss surgery in the Tijuana and Monterrey, Mexico area is safe and cost effective.

Tijuana Bariatrics offers all kinds of options to combat obesity and morbid obesity. When developing a treatment plan, surgeons ask patients to list their reasons for getting bariatric surgery. The 10 common justifications for undergoing weight loss surgery shed light on the benefits of surgical weight loss procedures.

Lose a Lot of Weight

Losing weight is a struggle for many people who are obese. Bariatric surgery reduces calorie intake and calorie absorption. This greatly aids in the rate and amount of weight loss.

Control Hunger and Cravings

Bariatric surgery revises the size of the stomach, which helps prevent cravings and overeating. Many weight loss surgery patients feel fuller sooner thanks to surgery. For some, bariatric surgery allows them to feel satiated for the first time.

Lower Risk of Heart Disease and Stroke

Hypertension is a common problem for people who are obese. Bariatric surgery can lower blood pressure, which reduces a person’s risk of heart attack, stroke, and cardiovascular disease.

Lower Cancer Risk

Obesity is linked to an increased risk of different kinds of cancers. Thanks to bariatric surgery, a person can lower their cancer risk by improving their weight, nutrition, and general wellness.

Address Type 2 Diabetes

Many people who are obese also suffer from type 2 diabetes. Bariatric surgery can help bring a patient’s blood sugar levels back to normal, and even eliminate all signs and symptoms associated with type 2 diabetes.

Help Treat Sleep Apnea

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common risk factor among obese and morbidly obese individuals. Bariatric surgery patients tend to experience less snoring and improved restfulness after losing a lot of weight.

Prevent Joint Damage and Arthritis

A high body mass index (BMI) typically means joint pain over time. Carrying excess weight often leads to severe arthritis. Undergoing bariatric surgery at an early age can greatly improve joint health later in life.

Increase Life Expectancy

As discussed, bariatric surgery helps lower blood pressure, reduces the risk of heart disease, allows patients to experience restful sleep, improves a patient’s diet, and allows patients to exercise and engage in physical activity. With all of these health benefits, it’s no surprise that bariatric surgery can add years to a person’s life.

Enhance Self-Esteem

Obesity is a source of embarrassment and self-consciousness for many people. In addition to enhancing general health, losing weight through bariatric surgery tends to restore a patient’s confidence, improve self-image, and enhance mental health.

Improve Quality of Life

Better physical and emotional wellness means that patients tend to have a much better quality of life. Bariatric surgery is a good way to help you live longer and thrive happily.
