Can Gastric Bypass Surgery Help Me Lose Weight?
Most experienced and qualified healthcare professionals will tell you that bariatric surgery is not for everyone; it is a serious operation with significant, long-lasting effects that may not be in the best interests of certain candidates. Candidacy for weight loss surgeries, such as gastric sleeve and gastric bypass, is normally limited to a group of individuals who share certain commonalities. At Smart DIMENSIONS™, we invite you to learn more about the traits found in gastric bypass surgery candidates. Contact our Orange County practice today to schedule a private consultation with a bariatric surgeon.
Are You Significantly Overweight?
In general, bariatric surgery is intended for individuals who are at least 75 pounds overweight. Excess weight can not only hamper your physical activity level and heighten the risk of health problems, but also can cause difficulty completing simple tasks, such as tying your shoelaces, playing with your children, or climbing a flight of stairs.
Bariatric surgery will cause rapid, significant weight loss and reduce your chances for the development or deterioration of co-morbidities (health problems such as heart problems, hypertension, and sleep apnea).
Do You Have a High Body Mass Index?
The doctors at Smart DIMENSIONS™ generally recommend bariatric surgery for individuals with a BMI of over 40; however, individuals with a BMI of 35 to 39.9 may also qualify.

Have You Been Unsuccessful with Other Weight Loss Methods?
If you have tried and failed to lose excess weight through diet and exercise, gastric bypass surgery may be for you. Crash diets and extreme exercise regimes often prove fruitless because the results are not sustainable. The “gold standard” of weight loss surgeries, gastric bypass, is an extremely effective and transformative operation; the results are long-lasting and sustainable through tweaks to your lifestyle and habits.
Are You Seeking a Weight Loss Solution?
Gastric bypass is a surgical weight loss method that reduces the size of the stomach so that it holds less food, thus lowering consumption and absorption of calories. The surgery alone will not magically cause pounds to melt off; candidates need to understand the commitment required to uphold the post-surgical lifestyle that makes it possible to experience rapid, significant weight loss. If you are mentally prepared to undergo weight loss surgery and are capable of sticking to stringent eating and lifestyle habits, gastric bypass may be for you!
