Is weight loss surgery right for me?

Is weight loss surgery right for me?

Many of us have asked ourselves this question. So, weight loss surgery may be appropriate for you: If you have struggled with your excess weight and have gone through a process of Yo-Yo dieting with extended periods of weight loss and gain. If so, you are not alone. Evidence has shown that up to 95% of diets fail, with people regaining their lost weight again shortly after losing it. *

Successful weight loss surgery can improve your self-esteem. It can enable you to find an improved level of confidence, positive feelings and control over a life that may have been an issue with being overweight for a long time.

Long term effects of any gastric surgery are reliant on a patient making the necessary changes to lifestyle, particularly in relation to diet and exercise.
