Top Resolutions Solved by Bariatric Surgery

For most of us, the New Year means a New You. People try to better themselves by giving up smoking, learning a new skill, spending more time with family, or – most frequently – losing weight. Unfortunately, many people give up on these news goals and end up having the same New Year Resolution every year.

At NYBG, we’re here to help you have No More Resolutions by showing you which resolutions bariatric surgery can help you achieve. Here’s a hint: there’s a lot!

Losing Weight

It may seem like a no-brainer, but bariatric surgery helps patients lose weight and keep it off forever. In fact, it is the most successful option for long-term weight loss, proven to be more effective than diet and exercise alone. Most commercial diets lack any successful long-term results, while bariatric surgery averages anywhere between 50-73% excess weight lost.

Groundbreaking professionals are consistently improving bariatric procedures – like the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass or sleeve gastrectomy – to increase their effectiveness and accessibility. Most patients need a BMI of 40 or higher (or 35 with at least 1 obesity-related condition) to receive a surgery. However, options like the ReShape Dual Balloon bring weight-loss success to people with a lower BMI.

Becoming More Active

It’s easier to live a more active lifestyle post-bariatric surgery. We recommend that patients exercise alongside their new dietary habits. It’s expected that patients incorporate a workout regimen into their lifestyles. With consistent practice it becomes easy to be more active.

As a bonus, we have resources to help our patients live healthier lives! We have regular consultations with our patients where we help create and improve plans tailored to each patient’s specific needs. This improves the rate of patient success for a more effective experience.

Spending More Time with Family

Bariatric surgery can’t give you more vacation days or hours off, but it can give you MORE time to spend with your loved ones.

Obesity has been linked to 20% of deaths among women and 15% among men. Bariatric surgery is the solution for obesity, and has been proven to alleviate its life-threatening complications as well! Weight loss surgery helps increase longevity while improving quality of life – talk about a win-win!

Becoming Healthier

As we mentioned previously, when people lose weight, their weight-related conditions go away. Bariatric surgery has been linked to the improvement and even remission of diabetes, sleep apnea, COPD, and joint pain, among others.

These overall improvements to health help make it easier to live a healthy lifestyle.

Saving Money

The estimated annual cost of obesity is over $15,000. People who suffer obesity have to pay for medications, diet plans, gym memberships, diet pills, healthcare costs, and your excess food.

Bariatric surgery alleviates most of those problems which also decreases the strain on your wallet. As a bonus, some insurance companies cover bariatric procedures, meaning patients won’t have to pay for their surgery out-of-pocket.

Nicole's success story

I hit my goal weight ... and I feel fabulous

I had the gastric bypass. I am Type 2 Diabetic and I wanted to gain control of my sugar. I hit my goal weight in about 5 and half months and I feel fabulous. The procedure has completely changed my life for the better because it has empowered me as a middle aged woman that I can really do everything and anything that I want to do. I don't put an age on anything. I don't say I'm too old for something.

Robert's success story

I was tired of the way I looked. I was tired of the way I felt.

I knew if I didn't change something soon, I was going to be in a lot of trouble. The consultation process was a lot easier than I expected. I was met with open arms. I was treated like I was the only patient here. Not only did they answer all of my questions, they had questions for me to make sure I was the right candidate for the surgery. After surgery and that weight started dropping off, my life started changing for the better.

Samantha's success story

I feel like a completely different person.

I had the gastric sleeve procedure. The driving factor behind me getting this procedure was my health. I didn't feel good physically or mentally. I had joint pains, even standing was difficult sometimes. Emotionally, this surgery completely turned my life around. I have so much more confidence. So much more happiness. I feel like a completely different person. I feel stronger. I feel able to accomplish more.

Eileen's success story

It saved my life.

The driving factor behind me getting my procedure was that I couldn't get up off the floor with my granddaughter. That was my why. That was my big reason for having this surgery done. After surgery, it was a little bit of a struggle with what to eat. What you put in your mouth that you don't even think about. You don't think about what you're eating or how you're eating and portion size. It's what I do now every single day. The procedure has changed my life in so many ways. It saved my life.

Brittany's success story

I am totally comfortable in my own skin.

I think I always grew up identifying myself as less than other people because I was fat. I decided to tackle that and just live my life. I had a sleeve gastrectomy. It changed how I view myself. How I communicate with people. I'm able to be much more of myself and live the life I always thought I should have been living. I am totally comfortable in my own skin. You have the tools you need to succeed here.
