Gastric Bypass Surgery Results Can Often Be Dramatic

Gastric bypass surgery is often chosen as a remedy for obesity due to the amazing results it provides. Houston-area patients can enjoy outstanding results while being cared for by a board-certified general surgeon when they schedule their procedure with Dr. Matthew St. Laurent.

What Results Can I Expect from Gastric Bypass Surgery?

Gastric bypass surgery can produce amazing results, particularly when it comes to weight loss. WebMD reports that the average patient will lose 60% of his or her excess weight after having this surgery. The amount of weight loss you experience will largely depend on the lifestyle changes you make, as those who adhere to a healthy diet and exercise program tend to enjoy the greatest results.

Losing a significant amount of weight can result in positive life changes in a number of ways. Many people have more self-esteem because they are no longer worried about how others view them. Enhanced self-esteem can cause you to be more at ease socially and might even make dating easier.

Improved Health

Several obesity-related disorders may improve significantly or disappear altogether. Some of these health conditions include the following:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Asthma
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol

Keep in mind that while it is highly likely these health conditions will improve, there’s no guarantee they will. Several factors will play a part in this as well, including your family medical history.

Although no particular results can be guaranteed, we are nonetheless confident that gastric bypass surgery can change your life for the better. Give us a call today to schedule a consultation and find out more about the amazing possible results.
