The Los Angeles-based weight loss clinic comments on a recent article that showcases that there are benefits for bariatric surgery beyond improving one's general well-being.

LOS ANGELES, March 21, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- A February 22 article on Reuters

looks at the benefits to a person's satisfaction with their sex lives after undergoing bariatric surgery. The study found a statistically significant correlation between individuals who have undergone bariatric surgery, whether male or female, and experiencing increased sexual satisfaction in terms of functionality, desire, and frequency. Even after five years, that correlation continued to exist, strongly suggesting that bariatric surgery can cause lasting and increasing improvements in patients' sexual satisfaction. Commenting on the article, Los Angeles-based weight loss surgery clinic Dr. Feiz & Associates notes that the study helps to confirm that bariatric surgery can be beneficial beyond the post-bariatric surgery benefits that are already widely discussed and well-documented, such as improved cardiovascular health and, frequently, type 2 diabetes remission. The clinic adds that, while the exact reasons for improved sexual satisfaction may not be scientifically explicit, improved self-confidence, a generally healthier lifestyle, as well as increased mobility and functionality are the likely causes of this improving satisfaction.

Expanding on the thought, the weight loss surgery clinic notes that bariatric surgery is by no means an easy way out of obesity, but for most patients, it may be the only way out. Many patients find that even after repeated attempts at losing what is often a substantial amount of extra weight, they slip back into old behaviors of overindulgence. The clinic adds that these habits; however, are not related to character flaws. Instead, the culprit may be a chemical traitor within the individual's own body - a hormone known as ghrelin, which is sometimes known as the "hunger hormone." The clinic explains that, as individuals begin to lose weight, the body enters a sort of survival-like mode that increases the hormone's levels in the body. This, in effect, leads to often overwhelming feelings of hunger that more often than not result in a dietary relapse with the added, hope-shredding irony that these individuals actually end up gaining some additional weight after their failed weight loss attempts.

The clinic notes that there is a plethora of evidence suggesting that the most widely employed bariatric procedures reduce a patient's ghrelin levels and therefore allow those patients to continue on a path towards a healthy lifestyle. Dr. Feiz & Associates adds that while no surgery is without risks, the success rate of bariatric surgery has established it as a safe and effective option in patients' fight against obesity.
