Weight Loss Surgery is the Proven Winner for Defeating Obesity

New York Bariatric Group Provides Innovative and Effective Bariatric Surgery Options for Patients

New Hyde Park, NY – A new research study in the British Medical Journal shows that weight loss surgery is the most effective treatment for obesity. With bariatric surgery, obese patients lose more weight, in less time, and are better able to maintain those results, keeping the weight off to lead to real, long term success and health improvements.

The research in the BMJ analyzed 11 previous studies of nearly 800 obese patients. The results were conclusive that bariatric surgery treatment produced on average 57 pounds more weight loss in two years than any non-surgical treatment, including all types of diet, exercise, medicine, and behavioral therapy.

Separately, researchers at the University of California at Los Angeles found that as many as two thirds of individuals who diet not only regain the weight they lost, but also gain additional weight, within five years of that diet ending. This research was based on the analysis of 31 individual long-term studies.

Bariatric surgery is the only proven methodology for maintaining that weight loss over the long haul. Treatments such as laparoscopic banding, gastric bypass, and sleeve gastrectomy accomplish this goal by forcing the individual to maintain a healthier lifestyle and overcome any physical or mental barriers.

Arguments against bariatric surgery in the past have included unnecessary health risks during surgery, and the excessive cost of surgical procedures. However, today’s new technology and refined procedures have made most bariatric surgery safer than ever, while insurance often provides coverage for bariatric surgery as well.

The correct mental approach is still a requirement in order to maximize and maintain those results, but overall, it’s a far more achievable and sustainable option. The most effective surgical clinics therefore not only provide the bariatric surgery itself, but also educational and support programs designed to produce long term weight loss results.

At the New York Bariatric Group, all types of bariatric surgery are performed by four of the country’s leading surgeons, and an unmatched bariatric program for patient success is provided.

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.

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.

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.
