LOS ANGELES, Oct. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- An October 1 article on Medical
West Medical notes that there are a number of ways to take advantage of this kind of medicine. For severely obese individuals, the clinic continues, sleeve gastrectomy surgery may be the most effective method of fighting hunger hormone production. The weight loss clinic notes that, during the surgery, the patient's stomach is reconfigured into a pouch-like chamber that is reduced to about one-tenth of its original size. West Medical explains that, as the remaining portion of the stomach is removed, production centers for most hunger hormones are either removed or significantly hampered. The clinic says that by hindering this biological process, patients are much less likely to splurge their way back to obesity after they have lost significant weight – although, of course, having a much smaller stomach also makes overeating far more unpleasant.
The weight loss specialists acknowledge that serious lifestyle changes must occur after any weight loss procedure for it to be a long-term success – but the surgery makes them easier. Of course, as the benefits of weight loss accrue, life can become a lot more enjoyable. Moreover, the weight loss clinic notes that a wealth of studies have provided an exceptional amount of evidence stating that patients are far less likely to suffer premature death – and the serious health problems that cause it. While medical science has reduced the mortality rate on many of these illnesses significantly, most of them can also greatly reduce an individual's overall quality of life. West Medical concludes that the benefits of weight loss operations such as sleeve gastrectomy surgery are more than worth the effort.
Patients who qualify for a sleeve gastrectomy typically have a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or more or 35 or more with related health problems such as type 2 diabetes. Other patients may take advantage of a growing number of alternative procedures.
