What Do You Have To Lose?

Losing weight is not about hitting a number on the scale or being a certain size – it’s about your health. Being overweight puts you at risk for a number of dangerous health conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer and sleep apnea. Bariatric surgery (also called weight loss surgery) can effectively help you lose the weight and many of the diseases related to obesity.
