How Do I Know if Bariatric Surgery Is Right for Me?

When the time comes for a metabolic change, decisions shouldn’t be made lightly. The team at Cooper University Health Care’s Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery Center is here not only to perform your procedure but also to help you prepare for it.

Our surgical team has performed nearly 2,000 bariatric procedures for residents of the Voorhees and Cherry Hill communities and beyond. Read on to determine if you should be next.

1. Traditional Weight Loss Methods Aren’t Working

Every time you turn on the TV, you’re likely to see an ad for the latest and greatest diet or exercise fad. Although these methods may work for some people, they won’t work for everyone. All bodies are different, and some simply will not respond to the usual methods of diet and exercise.

If you’ve tried making behavioral changes but haven’t seen results, bariatric surgery offers a tried and true solution. Procedures such as Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and vertical sleeve gastrectomy (VSG) may be right for you. Speak to one of our bariatric surgery experts, and they’ll help you decide.

2. You Want to Mitigate Pressing Health Issues

Countless health problems can stem from excess weight, such as diabetes, sleep apnea, and asthma. If these issues become pressing, you may want relief sooner rather than later, and the more expedient bariatric surgery option could be right for you.

It won’t take long to see results, and you may see a dramatic improvement in certain health issues. For instance, remember that sleep apnea we mentioned? It could be reduced by 90%. If you’ve had diabetes for less than five years, there’s an 80% chance that it may go away entirely.

3. You Want Proven Results

Results are what we all want. When diets, exercise regimens, and other popular remedies fail, you may wonder if anything will work. Bariatric surgery is a solution that you can count on.

More than 90% of patients with severe obesity lose half of their excess weight after bariatric surgery, and some lose even more. Most are able to maintain this weight loss.

Ultimately, it’s that level of maintenance that makes the difference. Anyone who wants to skip yo-yo diets and achieve consistent weight loss can count on the proven track record of bariatric surgery.
