Change Your Life with Weight Loss Surgery

If you’re 100 pounds or more above your ideal body weight, you may be a good candidate for weight loss surgery at Garden State Bariatrics & Wellness Center. Morbidly-obese individuals tend to suffer from a variety of severe medical complications, including Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, obstructive sleep apnea, and heart disease. Losing a significant amount of weight and successfully keeping it off can help reverse many of these medical issues. If diet and exercise changes alone have been unsuccessful for you, weight loss surgery may be recommended to help you achieve weight loss. If your Body Mass Index (BMI) is higher than 40 you are eligible for bariatric surgery. If your BMI is 35 and you have a comorbidity (i.e.., another chronic health issue) such as sleep apnea, diabetes, high blood pressure, you might also be eligible. Our bariatric surgeons would welcome the opportunity to schedule a consultation with you. Our compassionate team would love to help you get your life back on track!

What Is Bariatric Surgery, and What Should I Expect?

The term bariatric surgery refers to several different weight loss procedures. Many of these involve reducing the size of an individual’s stomach to help control portion sizes by restricting the amount of food your stomach can hold. Some surgeries also cause hormonal changes to reduce an individual’s appetite. It should be noted that bariatric surgery should not be thought of as a “quick fix” for those seeking weight loss. Patients who undergo bariatric surgery must be willing to commit to permanent lifestyle and dietary decisions to ensure its long-term success. Garden State Bariatrics & Wellness Center has seen a phenomenal success rate among our patients. We have three locations throughout the state of New Jersey in Millburn, Toms River and Browns Mills. View our testimonials and photo galleries to learn more about what you can expect before and after one of our bariatric procedures.
