When should I consider weight loss surgery?

Losing weight can help improve your health and general well-being. If you’re overweight or obese, you’re at an increased risk for many health conditions. Being overweight or obese can also limit your mobility, make it harder to get good sleep, and exacerbate mental health concerns like anxiety and depression. 

You can find out whether you’re overweight or obese using your body mass index (BMI). Physicians calculate your BMI using your height and weight.

A BMI of over 30 usually indicates obesity and may motivate you to consider losing weight. Dr. Stowers can help you review your BMI and fat composition as you decide whether or not to pursue bariatric surgery. 

What are the health benefits of weight loss surgery?

Losing weight with a healthy, physician-guided weight loss plan is a great way to improve your health and lower your risk for several chronic or life-threatening conditions. A few of the benefits of weight loss are:

  • Reduced risk for heart disease
  • Reduced risk for stroke
  • Reduced risk for certain cancers
  • Reduced risk for type 2 diabetes
  • Improvement or resolution of diabetes
  • Resolution of acid reflux
  • Improved fertility
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Lower cholesterol
  • Better mobility
  • Less joint and back pain
  • Better breathing during sleep

You might also experience improvements in your mental and social wellness in addition to the physical benefits of healthy weight loss.
