Extra Benefits


On a monthly basis, new studies are constantly being published that recognize the benefits of weight-loss surgery, which has been shown to lower the risk of heart disease, reverse type 2 diabetes, improve fertility, and more.

Here are additional extra benefits you can expect after undergoing weight-loss surgery.

Better health and fewer medications

As you begin to shed weight following weight-loss surgery, you’ll find that many health problems you may have been experiencing as a result of being overweight or obese will slowly start to reverse themselves. Conditions such as obstructive sleep apnea, snoring, fertility problems, joint pain, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and type 2 diabetes all have the ability to be reversed through weight loss. In fact, most patients are able to stop taking medications for these conditions in the months following surgery. Not only can many patients start saving on prescription costs, but they can focus more on healthy living without having to keep track of medications.

Boosted energy levels

Weight loss can help alleviate joint pain and make your body feel lighter, which will allow you to engage in more frequent bouts of physical activity. Additionally, the healthy diet you’ll be eating along with plenty of fruits and vegetables will provide you with an added energy boost. After undergoing weight-loss surgery, you’ll be able to spend more time with friends and family doing activities that may have tired you previously, such as going on hikes, going on shopping sprees, and even participating in local marathons.

More shopping options

When you start losing weight, you’ll have a genuine excuse for going out and buying new clothing to flatter your new shape. Weight loss can really boost confidence for most patients, especially when they’re able to rid their closets of the loose clothes they may have hidden behind prior to surgery. In the months following surgery when you continue to trim down, you can go shopping and buy new articles of clothing in styles you may not have dreamed of wearing prior to surgery.

Renewal in pride and self-confidence

While it’s true that you don’t need to be thin to be happy, studies have shown that obesity can cause a person’s hormones to fluctuate, which can sometimes lead to mood swings, anxiety, and depression. Not only might you feel better about your personal appearance after surgery, but a regulation in hormones can help ease any feelings of sadness and depression you may have been feeling prior to surgery. Plus, losing weight can be hard work, so you can feel more accomplished as you start to slim down as a result of diet and exercise following surgery.
