Bariatric Surgery

     Bariatric surgery covers a few different procedures, and is a proven way for many people to lose weight, including some well know celebrities,as can be seen in this new york bariatric surgery video with Mo Bounce. To be accepted for the procedures you have to meet certain criteria as the surgery is not available for everybody; for example, your BMI has to be over 30 and you have to be over 18 years of age. The procedures themselves generally involve suppressing appetite by convincing the brain that your stomach is full, which is achieved by fitting an adjustable band around the upper portion of the stomach. This proven weight loss procedure is an excellent way for those who are obese to lose a considerable amount of weight.

Weight Loss Counseling

     It has been found that weight gain can often be attributed to psychological factors, and if these problems are overcome then weight loss will occur. Things like stress and not getting enough sleep will make you put on weight, as your brain will affect your eating habits and patterns to cope. A weight loss councelor will help you identify the core problems that you have, and will help you design a strategy to overcome those problems. A councelor will also help in other areas; such as support and information about diets and exercise. Many people are embarrassed to go and see a counselor, as they feel there is a stigma attached, but weight loss counseling is a respected profession that has helped countless people with weight problems.


     Liposuction is a fast way to lose weight, and is a procedure that is carried out in most hospitals. Excess body fat is suctioned out of the body in a procedure that is fairly invasive; and not suitable for everybody. Though there is no doubt that weight will decrease drastically, you must consider the pitfalls of the treatment too. For instance, your skin will not have had any time to contract from the stretched state it was previously in, and this could lead to folds of skin on your body that, though not generally dangerous, can cause extreme embarrassment unless another procedure is used to remove them.
