Summer's Coming: Don't Let Obesity Cramp Your Style for Another Season
By: PR Newswire Association LLC. - 21 May 2013Back to overview list

LOS ANGELES, May 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Most people look forward to summer, but if you're severely obese, active summer fun might seem like a distant dream. If exercise and reduced calorie diets have failed to produce lasting results for you, the outstanding weight loss surgery team at Beverly Hills Physicians is here to help you find out if a bariatric procedure is right for you.

The inability to enjoy outdoor fun can hit any extremely overweight person, and the social and psychological consequences are obvious. It can be especially hard on parents who are unable to keep up with their active children.  If you have spent summers in discomfort and unable to participate in healthy outdoor activities with friends, children, or even pets, then it might be time to investigate whether a lap band, gastric sleeve, or another procedure is right for you.

Of course, the decision to obtain weight loss surgery is not a small matter and you need all the good information you can get. The outstanding bariatric surgeons and medical staff at Beverly Hills Physicians are here to provide you with the details you need to make an informed decision. Along with finding out whether or not your overall health makes you a candidate for weight loss surgery, there is also the matter of which surgery is right for you. Many patients opt for the least invasive as well as the only adjustable and reversible choice, the lap band. This was the choice obtained earlier this month by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who appears to be enjoying some success with the procedure. Other patients, however, may have reason to go directly to the traditional roux-en-Y gastric bypass. Recently, the highly effective operation known as gastric sleeve has been the most typical choice but, of course, every patient's situation is highly individual.

Where you obtain your bariatric surgery will make a tremendous difference. Beverly Hills Physicians is dedicated to ensuring that the weight loss process goes as smoothly as possible. Our doctors and staff are sensitive to the concerns of people who are fighting obesity, and take a compassionate and sensitive approach to the sometimes delicate issues that can arise during a major weight loss.

The Beverly Hills Physicians team is dedicated to providing you with the back-up you need when it comes to making the necessary lifestyle changes that are needed for significant and permanent weight loss. Aside from the guidance and support you'll receive from your doctor, the medical group also offers the services of a registered dietitian and a therapist specializing in the issues brought up by obesity and weight loss.

The support offered by Beverly Hills Physicians also extends to financial issues. Although bariatric surgery is very often covered by medical insurance, copays and deductibles may vary significantly; also, of course, not everybody carries medical insurance. Whatever the financial issues, a team of dedicated and friendly counselors is here to ensure that desired medical procedures are within reach of all of our patients. 

If obesity is endangering your health and making it hard to enjoy life, now is the time to get started on making things right. To learn how these widely respected medical professionals of Beverly Hills Physicians can become your weight loss team, please request a free initial consultation. Call 800-788-1416 or visit
