The Many Benefits of Weight Loss Surgery
While all patients who select weight loss surgery are similar in that they are looking for a way to lose their excess weight and benefit from the various advantages of being thinner, patients can differ in exactly what they are looking for out of their procedure. At Dr. Feiz & Associates, we know that there are many different benefits of a healthy lifestyle, including those that can benefit both physical and mental health.
For years, it has been known that weight loss surgery can have tremendous benefits for patients who are suffering from diseases such as heart disease and Type-2 Diabetes. More recently, studies have shown that weight loss surgery can have certain positive psychological benefits. One such study noted that couples reported greater intimacy after having bariatric surgery.
Each individual patient may find that the thing they gain most from weight loss surgery is different than the last patient, and in fact, every patient should be aware that there are no guaranteed results with weight loss surgery. Yet, going to Dr. Feiz & Associates is a good first step that can help turn the decision to go through with weight loss surgery into long-term success.
