LOS ANGELES, Oct. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The expert surgeons at Beverly Hills Physicians have consistently found that bariatric weight loss surgeries can be remarkably effective at helping to boost a person's health. Further still, there's no denying that weight loss treatment often leads to the substantial confidence boost that comes with a more aesthetically-pleasing figure. Unfortunately, however, those who lose substantial quantities of weight can sometimes suffer from sagging skin on the upper arms, thighs or buttocks, as well as other issues that obscure one's natural beauty. Yet, these are precisely the types of problems that can be alleviated by the artful cosmetic procedures performed by the surgeons at BHP. In fact, a new study has found that undergoing cosmetic surgery after weight loss surgery can actually help obese patients to maintain a healthy weight.
Science World Report details the study, which was completed at the Henry Ford Hospital. Researchers found that patients who underwent plastic surgery after weight loss treatment to reshape their bodies would actually maintain greater weight loss compared to those who did not undergo any surgery. "Of the [bariatric] patients who underwent contouring surgery, the average decrease in BMI was 18.24 at 2.5 years, compared to a statistically significant 12.45 at 2. 5 years for those who did not have further surgery," said Dr. Donna Tepper, the senior author of the study.
This is terrific news for weight loss surgery patients at Beverly Hills Physicians' network of medical facilities. It means that looking better will also help motivate them to adhere to the important lifestyle changes they will need to ensure they maintain a healthy weight for years to come. The specialists at BHP are acclaimed for their strong belief in the importance of a balance between health, wellness and beauty to ensure a rich and joyful life – making them the ideal option for those seeking a better life through weight loss treatment.
Weight Loss Surgery with Life-Changing Results
The bariatric treatments offered at BHP include Lap-Band, sleeve gastrectomy, gastric bypass, and even revision weight loss for those who have undergone an unsuccessful surgery under a lesser surgeon. At every stage of treatment, their dedicated team will remain on hand to guide patients, making certain they receive the ideal bariatric procedure and cosmetic treatment for their unique body and aesthetic goals.
Weight loss has been found to lead to a decrease in risk of heart attack, stroke, hypertension, sleep apnea, and Type 2 diabetes. With treatment at BHP, you can extend the length and quality of your life by reducing your risk of developing these conditions, while also opening the door to new opportunities by boosting your self-confidence and quality of life through enhanced beauty.
