Weight Loss Surgery Options at Marina Del Rey Hospital

Due to continual development and improvement, medical treatment for obesity is effective, safe and quickly advancing. The more popular surgical procedures opted for in Los Angeles are:

While nobody can expect weight loss surgery to work wonders, it is documented that patients undergoing one or the other of the surgical procedures are able to persistently lose weight and even more, are able to maintain their weight. The improvement of obesity comorbidities such as diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea or joint pain is evidenced by clinical studies done on the effects of lap band surgery and other abdominal surgery procedures.

Regardless of the chosen method, it is crucial to adopt healthy eating habits and to regularly exercise. The ideal diet focuses not only on the quality of the food but on portioning also. Calorie-rich foods have to be avoided as far as possible. Physical exercises should include aerobic exercises that tone and strengthen muscles and the entire body. If the lifestyle changes are not permanent, there's a possibility of taking back the weight lost with so much work. For instance, for patients who decide to extract the lap band, turning back to previous eating habits and portions is a true temptation.
