Obesity is a huge problem not only in Kansas City, but across the nation and around the world. At The Bariatric Center of Kansas City, we understand that weight loss surgery not only improves your health and sense of well being, but improves your life overall. Slim people are not only healthier, but more confident, active, and looked upon by friends, employers, and others in a more positive light.

There has and always will be a stigma attached to those who are overweight, unfortunately. Do you lead a sedentary lifestyle, avoid exercise, or simply eat too much? Others often view those who are overweight or obese as lazy, or not caring about their health and appearance. We know that people who make an effort to lose excess weight often experience a complete change in their lives, from improved self-confidence and better health to engaging more socially and pursuing career opportunities that would not have pursued as someone considered overweight.

So, how can weight loss surgery improve your life? Whether your choose a gastric bypass or sleeve, or LapBand surgery, those in the Kansas City Metro area have experienced many changes in their lives. Some improvements many patients have experienced include:

  • Fewer body aches and pains
  • Improved cardiovascular health (lower blood pressure and “bad” cholesterol levels)
  • Improved sex drive
  • Longer life expectancy
  • Lower risk of diabetes, or improvement in symptoms
  • Changes in overall quality of life and psychological status
  • Substantial reduction in unemployment, disability, and even “singlehood”

Essentially, every aspect of your life can change following weight loss surgery from improved health and reduced risk of early death to a better social life and career opportunities. Today, society frowns upon those who are substantially overweight or obese, although much of the population falls into this category. With weight loss surgery, you will benefit in terms of greater health, and an improved social life, relationships, career, and more. Many individuals with sleep apnea also experience a significant improvement.

Physical activity is another area of life improved through weight loss surgery, as those who lose a substantial amount of weight are able to become more involved in activities that are more physical. In fact, significant weight loss often leads to a much greater interest in exercising, working out, or any activity that improves appearance and helps tone/firm the body.
