The Los Angeles area medical group comments on a recent article that weight loss surgery is now by both laypeople and healthcare professionals as an important medical procedure, not a cosmetic one.

LOS ANGELES, March 7, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- A February 25th article on the Messenger-Inquirer

reports on a woman who had weight loss surgery and discusses how the procedure has benefited her overall health. The article reported that the woman had tried to lose weight previously through diets, pills, and exercise but had no success over many years. After deciding to have weight loss surgery, the woman said she no longer needed to take medication for her high blood pressure and cholesterol, and also benefited from improved mental health. She also noted that her lifestyle is healthier overall as she is now able to exercise and play basketball along with her son. Beverly Hills Physicians, a Los Angeles based health and beauty medical group, notes that like the woman in the article, when individuals reduce their excess weight, it becomes easier to maintain a healthy lifestyle and can increase life expectancy by several years while also dramatically improving the quality of that life. While weight loss surgeries may have seemed like only a beauty procedure years ago to many, today it is seen mostly for its health and life-saving benefits by laypeople and professionals alike, BHP says.

Beverly Hills Physicians says that many people who try to lose weight on their own have the same experience as the woman in the article. A common misperception is that, with some reasonable effort, most people can stop being obese if they want to badly enough. The Los Angeles-based clinic notes, however, that it's not nearly that simple. There are many other health factors that can make natural weight loss difficult; yes, diet and exercise can permanently defeat obesity and reverse its negative health impacts, but the reality is that, it's only a very, very rare few who are able to fully defeat obesity on their own. That's largely due to hormones that may spur overeating and which actually increase as we begin to lose weight. The fact of the matter is that the vast majority of individuals are simply unable to ignore constant, hormonally driven, hunger pangs over the long term. In these cases, very often the best and only option is to take advantage of procedures like a sleeve gastrectomy, which then allows for the patient to eat a much smaller diet while being able to go about their business and build a healthier and happier life, BHP says.

When individuals are struggling with weight loss, maintaining a fulfilling lifestyle can be difficult, BHP notes. The excessive weight makes it difficult for many to move or stand for long periods of time, let alone work out or participate in sports. BHP says that, by reducing the weight via surgery and decreasing the strain on joints, individuals are then able to exercise more comfortably, helping to create a virtuous cycle that allows for continued weight loss and build-up of healthy muscle tissue.
