The Benefits of Weight-Loss Surgery
Since losing weight through different methods such as working out and dieting bore no fruits for the Mexicans, weight loss surgery was easily accepted as the most efficient and secure way of losing weight in Mexico.As a matter of fact, researchers show that losing weight through exercising and dieting proves to be ineffective because the 95% of the people end up regaining weight after five years. But with weight loss surgeries such as lap-band, you are guaranteed that you will lose about 50% to 70% of weight and maintain the same weight for a long time. Although several aspects determine if an individual is going to lose weight or not, in Mexico, weight loss surgery is considered to be a lasting and secure solution for overweight individuals.
Researchers also proved that gastric bypass surgery enables individuals to lose weight within one year as opposed to individuals who choose lap-band surgery. Conversely, individuals who go through gastric bypass surgery, are exposed to high risks as opposed to those who go through lap-band surgery as its weight loss happens slowly.
Physicians consider weight loss surgery to be effective if a patient can lose half the total weight they weigh and still maintain the same weight in the next five years or so. Even though a patient needs to adhere to a strict lifestyle change for them to ensure that they indeed maintain their weight loss, studies show that ten years after undergoing the surgical procedure, they will still keep a 50-60% excess body weight loss.
It is worth noting that losing weight at a rate of 10% of the total body weight you weighed means that some overweight-related health disorders brought about by diseases such as diabetes, asthma or gastric reflux will be reduced.
Apart from being light and having good looks, a person who has undergone weight-loss surgery enjoys other health benefits. Another advantage of weight loss surgery is that it can remedy or improve some of the health illnesses that came as a result of a person being overweight. Once an individual undergoes the weight loss surgery, he or she can perform duties that they could not do before the operation such as fastening their laces as well as fitting in a car seat properly.
As weight-loss surgery requires you to take a break from your daily chores; it is of paramount importance to involve your relatives and acquaintances before undergoing surgery.
Lastly, the cost of undergoing weight loss surgery is quite high, but with all the risks associated with being obese, weight loss surgery becomes a satisfactory choice.
