The Nicholson Clinic for Weight Loss Surgery’s founder discusses the benefits.
Plano, TX, Jan 08, 2016—Making the decision to undergo weight loss surgery might not be easy, but it can have benefits that ripple through a person’s life. From improving appearance to dramatically lowering the risks for certain diseases, this intervention, when deemed medically appropriate, can change lives for the better.
“Weight loss surgery is a serious step that isn’t for everyone,” explains Dr. Nick Nicholson, founder and lead surgeon at the North Texas-based Nicholson Clinic, one of the top weight loss surgery centers in the country. “For those who struggle without success to shed pounds, the option can produce tremendous, lasting results.”
Studies have backed the benefits of weight loss surgery for those considered severely obese. Those benefits include:
· Sustainable, long-term weight loss – Weight loss surgery isn’t a diet, it’s a procedure designed to make dieting more effective. Those who undergo procedures have been shown to lose as much as 50 percent of their body fat while having the ability to maintain that loss long term.
· Improved lifespan – A number of studies have shown that individuals who are severely obese who undergo weight loss surgery dramatically reduce their death risk over those who are obese, but don’t lose the weight.
· Reduction of disease impacts – Weight loss surgery has been shown to reduce the risks of heart disease, obesity-related cancers and Type 2 diabetes, among other conditions. For those who already have these conditions, surgery can help improve symptoms. In some Type 2 diabetics, bariatric procedures have proven beneficial for reversing the disease
· Quality of life improvements – Many studies have shown that bariatric surgery can help people realize a higher quality of life by improving self-esteem, mobility, sexual function and overall outlook.
“For those who struggle with weight loss, bariatric surgery can have profound effects,” Dr. Nicholson says. “It’s important, however, to work closely with a qualified surgeon to determine if this option is right for you.
