Overweight patients who have a high risk of heart disease or diabetes can benefit greatly from fat reduction procedures for moderate weight loss. Not only do they produce pleasing aesthetic results, but these procedures can also extend a patient’s longevity and improve their health. Patients who opt for weight loss surgery can expect to achieve noticeable weight loss and a better quality of life. In most cases, the reduction in size is more significant than the reduction in weight.
Keep in mind that patients who are moderately or severely obese, with a BMI greater than 35, will require weight loss through diet and exercise or through bariatric procedures such as gastric sleeve or bypass. Dr. Agullo would be happy to refer you to a specialist if this is the case.
