Have you considered going overseas for obesity surgery such as gastric banding or gastric bypass surgery or weight loss treatment?

The World Health Organization estimates that 1.6 billion people worldwide are overweight or obese. The death toll associated with obesity runs to 2.5 million annually, and the numbers haven’t reached their peak.

Overweight and obesity are serious threats to health and longevity. In truth, body fat kills—not directly, but indirectly through its consequences: heart disease, stroke, diabetes, liver disease, and cancer. What’s more, the greater the fat load, the greater the risk of disease, disability, and an early demise.

That's where bariatric surgery comes in. For those considered severely obese (an excess of 80 pounds [36 kg] for women and 100 pounds [45 kg]) for men), surgery that reduces food intake, food absorption, or both, can be a lifesaver. The weight loss that follows reduces the risks of developing diabetes and heart disease. It achieves other health benefits as well.

Commonly referred to as weight loss surgery, bariatric surgery is one of the few weight loss treatments that has a history of proven results. The term bariatric surgery refers to any surgical procedure on the stomach or intestines to induce weight loss.
