Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 07, 2016
According to a September 1 article published in New York Magazine, for the first time in the last ten years, the rate of obese American adults has decreased slightly in several U.S. states. Dr. Feiz & Associates notes that while the recent findings show some hope in the battle against the ongoing obesity epidemic, there is still a long way to go. The Los Angeles bariatric surgery center goes on to note that cutting-edge weight loss surgery procedures have been shown to help obese patients safely lose weight and also improve their overall quality of life in a number of ways. These include:
Mobility - Dr. Feiz & Associates notes that severely obese patients are often very limited by their excess weight due to worsened pain associated with such issues as osteoarthritis. The Los Angeles bariatric surgery center notes that undergoing a weight loss surgery procedure, such as a gastric sleeve, can facilitate significant weight loss and therefore may often greatly decrease the strain on patients’ bones and joints. The clinic adds that improved mobility also means many patients find that exercise becomes more feasible, with many added health benefits resulting.
Energy - Severely obese patients often suffer from disruptive sleeping conditions related to their obesity, such as sleep apnea, that can significantly lower their energy levels during the day. The Los Angeles bariatric surgery center adds that losing excess weight following a weight loss surgery can often resolve a patient’s sleep apnea and may enable them to enjoy uninterrupted sleep throughout the night. In addition, because a patient is likely to be more well-rested, increased energy levels can also improve their mental functions and encourage more healthy physical activity.
Improved Appearance – While Dr. Feiz & Associates points out that bariatric surgery should never be considered a cosmetic procedure, there’s no denying that an improved appearance due to a reduced size is a powerful motivator for many patients. A significant number of patients report a greater feeling of self-confidence and increased participation in social activities following weight loss, says Dr. Feiz & Associates.
Dr. Feiz & Associates concludes by noting that that, while progress in the fight against obesity is very encouraging, many patients find they need help to win their own personal battle against severe obesity. The Los Angeles bariatric surgery center goes on to note that safe and effective procedures are now available which can enable a great many patients to make the changes that are necessary to achieve a healthy weight.
