Weight Loss Surgery for Adults & Adolescents Ultra Minimally Invasive Da Vinci Xi Procedures
Bariatric surgery is the most effective and long-lasting treatment for being overweight and provides exciting life-changing results. Patients lose as much as 80% of excess weight in the first 6 months after surgery and 90% of excess weight as early as 12 months after surgery.
When BMI is greater than 35, the chances of reaching a normal weight for a lasting period of time is less than 1%. Overweight people become resistant to weight loss due to Leptin and other hormones. Metabolic surgery/bariatric surgery resets hormones and makes long-term weight loss possible.
