Bariatric Surgery: The Gateway to Getting Your Life Back

bariatric surgery to get your life back imageIf you’ve been overweight for a while, there’s a good chance you’ve developed a handful of habits that only make matters worse. Too much TV, lots of fast food and sweets, an aversion to exercise, or maybe just a crazy work schedule?

It happens, usually little by little. And despite your best efforts, trying to lose weight by following fad diets or using gimmicky made-for-TV-weight-loss products can be incredibly frustrating. It’s a recipe for yo-yo dieting, weight loss and weight gain, and a cycle that keeps repeating until you’re ready to give up.

Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be that way. When you reach the tipping point of being significantly overweight (maybe it’s a diabetes diagnosis, high blood pressure, death in the family, or cost of a double-seat airline ticket), knowing what to do next can change everything.

Positive Life Changes Happen After Bariatric Surgery

We’ve seen it hundreds of times in our practice, and it never gets old watching the transformation that takes place for patients. Providing patients with a life-changing surgery that can help them lose weight is just the first part of the transformation.

When patients start losing weight we also see significant improvements in their health like lower blood pressure, better blood sugar control, improved sleeping patterns, and reduced risks for chronic diseases. From a medical perspective, these are markers we watch closely after surgery. But the benefits don’t stop there. Weight loss after surgery has also helped many patients be more successful in their careers, have better relationships, and change their attitude about life.

Bariatric Surgery Helps Popular DJ Loses 100-Plus Pounds

For example, when popular radio host DJ Mo Bounce topped the charts with a Body Mass Index of 39 at just 33 years old, he decided it was time to give his image a makeover.

“I tried every and any diet,” says Mo Bounce. “I would lose some weight, then put it right back on. I couldn’t keep the weight down, even while staying active.”

Then he made contact with the New York Bariatric Group to find out if he was a good candidate for weight-loss surgery. The process involved a series of meetings, consultations, and testing, along with education to learn more about bariatric surgery and how to achieve optimal results through diet and exercise.

“Once I was educated on the procedure, it became a no-brainer,” says Mo Bounce. “Now I no longer suffer from sleep apnea or high cholesterol, and I feel so much better about myself.”

You’ll hear DJ Mo Bounce on Z100 in New York City, which also airs in Washington D.C., Atlanta, Ga., Portland, Ore., and nationwide on XM Radio Channel 12 and iHeartRadio. Hear him on the radio, and if it sounds like he’s loving life, you’re right. He’s lost about 105 pounds since his surgery by the New York Bariatric Group. Take a look at his amazing transformation after his bariatric procedure.
