Being overweight or obese can be tough both physically and mentally. Health can be an issue, with excess weight causing things like high blood pressure, Type 2 diabetes, and more. But never mind that — sometimes it is just hard to get off the couch and go outside if your self-esteem is suffering.
If This Sounds Like the Life You Have Been Living, Don’t Worry. It Can Get Better!
Weight loss is a journey, and Barnes Bariatric Solutions walks with you from start to finish. Barnes offers many surgical weight-loss options, such as gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, and LAP-BAND. But no matter the procedure, the goal is always the same: Make sure the patient is comfortable, healthy, and happy!
You do not have to struggle through years of up-and-down fad dieting and strenuous exercise to see results. In fact, a healthier, happier you is just waiting to be discovered! It is time to find yourself once again!
To see whether you qualify to be a candidate at Barnes Bariatric Solutions, first ask yourself these four questions:
- Do I have a Body Mass Index of 35 or higher? Those who have a BMI of 35 or higher are considered morbidly obese.
- Do I have any health complications as a result of my excess weight? These could include heart or lung problems, diabetes, joint pain, and more.
- Have I tried a traditional diet and exercise to no avail? Some people make it look easy, while others try and do not see results. That’s OK!
- Am I psychologically prepared to make a drastic lifestyle change? To ensure the longevity of your results, you must be committed to living a healthy life post-surgery.
Do not wait to start your journey to better health. You have dealt with the pain of excess weight for too long, and it is time to get you feeling better.
