LOS ANGELES, April 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Over the past decade, a substantial amount of research has outlined the numerous physical benefits that weight loss surgery can have on the health of a person's body. Now, according to new data, it is known that these same procedures have a sizable positive impact on the health of the mind as well. The study, which was recently published in the journal, Psychology, Health & Medicine, examined 21 different scientific articles dealing with quality of life and weight as it pertained to pre and post-operative bariatric patients, and found the overall boost in psychological health to be statistically significant. While this quantitative data has only recently been released, leading bariatric surgeons like Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. have long seen a noticeable boost in happiness and emotional well-being in the majority of their patients. According to Dr. Feiz, there are several benefits that patients gain from bariatric surgery that may contribute to a person's overall psychological well-being. These may include:
- Control of Your Health – The most important benefit of losing weight as a result of a bariatric procedure like a sleeve gastrectomy in Beverly Hills is that it frees people from the dangerous health effects of obesity. Knowing that they can now live healthier (and often significantly longer) lives makes people feel comforted in the knowledge that they are doing everything they can for the future of themselves and their family.
- Control of Your Life – Another major benefit of losing weight is the ability to participate in a variety of meaningful activities that obesity was preventing. Many obese patients are not able to participate in activities that involve exercise, travel, or simply require a significant amount of energy, and they feel like they are missing out on important life experiences. After patients lose their excess weight with bariatric surgery, they no longer have to be burdened by these potential regrets.
- Control of Your Image – While vanity is by no means the top reason why people elect weight loss surgery, the improvement in one's appearance is a very real benefit of weight loss surgery that can significantly boost a person's confidence. By losing weight, patients can finally be assured that people see them the way they see themselves, rather having to worry about others making judgments about their appearance.
While weight loss surgery benefits different patients in many different ways, what is consistent is that these results are far more likely to be positive when patients go to an experienced bariatric surgeon like Dr. Feiz for their procedure. Dr. Feiz is widely respected in the field of bariatric surgery, and has been featured discussing weight loss on The Doctors TV show.
