At Bariatric & Aesthetic Surgery Associates, our service excellence goes beyond offering advanced surgical weight loss options; we partner with our patients to achieve long-term weight loss success. The center provides a multidisciplinary approach to help patients attain long-term success. A team of weight loss experts provides all services, including patient education, nutrition counseling, psychosocial counseling, pre-operative evaluation, surgery and post-operative support. The center offers a full array of surgeries, including gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, lap band, lap band refills and revisions.
Keep in mind that weight loss alone is not the only goal of our program. Our goal is to help you incorporate a healthy lifestyle by exercising, redefining your relationship with food and through follow-up with our team in order to maintain healthy weight loss.
Many of you have researched your weight loss options for numerous years and have attempted many diets without long term success. Studies show that only 5% of morbidly obese people will succeed in weight loss and maintenance of this weight loss through diet attempts. This means that 95% of people with a BMI of greater than 35 with health conditions or 40 with or without health conditions fail at the everyday diet. Therefore, you are not alone. Surgery has proven to be the only successful long term weight loss option as of yet.
Weight loss surgery procedures that we perform include:
- Lap Band System Surgery
- Gastric Bypass (Lap Roux-en-Y)
- Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy
- Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery
