Dr. Feiz & Associates note that a significant and long term weight loss through bariatric surgery can provide patients with a variety of improvements to their overall quality of life...

As reported by a September 5 article published on Michigan Live, a group of bariatric surgery patients celebrated their recent weight loss with a trip to a local amusement park – enjoying intense thrill rides which were previously off limits to them on account of their severe obesity. Dr. Feiz & Associates note that a significant and long term weight loss through bariatric surgery can provide patients with a variety of improvements to their overall quality of life by fostering a more active and enjoyable life, in addition to the much discussed improvements regarding such important health concerns as type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. Specifically, patients’ lifestyles can change in the following ways:

Physical activities - Severely obese patients are often limited by their ability to complete simple tasks on a daily basis due to their size, excess weight, joint pain and other issues. Dr. Feiz & Associates note that losing a significant amount of weight with the help of a bariatric surgery can make simple tasks such as walking or light exercise not only a great deal less painful, but can actually help to make exercise a pleasure for many patients. The Los Angeles bariatric surgery center goes on to note that in addition to improved mobility, many patients can also more easily participate in other physical activities and events that they may not have felt up to participating in prior to their weight loss. These activities can range from something as basic as a family vacation to more strenuous activities. Dr. Feiz & Associates note that many patients participate in activities such as 5K runs, and several have been more ambitious, with one patient recently noting on social media that he had completed five half-marathons.

Social activities - Dr. Feiz & Associates note that severely obese patients may often feel discouraged from participating in various social activities due to social anxiety and lack of confidence related to their excess weight and, in some cases, health issues related to their obesity. The Los Angeles bariatric surgery center goes on to note that undergoing a successful weight loss surgery, such as a sleeve gastrectomy, can help the majority of patients lose their excess weight improving not only their physical health but, in many cases, their self-esteem as well. Patients therefore, often report improvements in both their personal and career lives following a significant weight loss.

Dr. Feiz & Associates conclude by noting that a bariatric surgery can lead to a variety of health and wellness benefits that can lead to a life that is not just longer and healthier, but happier as well.
