Here at Desert Surgical & Bariatric Specialists in Palm Springs, many of our patients are amazed how much gastric bypass surgery improved their quality of life. For many of them, they were just hoping to lose weight so that they could improve their appearance. However, the results they received were so much more than just a more pleasant face to see when they looked into the mirror. If you’re in the Palm Springs area, and you’ve been contemplating having gastric bypass surgery, we’d like to invite you read on and learn more about all of the benefits this life-changing decision has in store for you.
Improved Physical Health
For most of our patients, their level of obesity has caused them a great deal of medical problems. For some of them, they’ve battled high blood pressure for years. Others develop diabetes over a period of time. The list of medical problems caused or contributed to by obesity is a long one, including terrible joint pain and backaches, headaches and even an increased risk of developing cancer. After their surgery, and with proper support, those patients saw a dramatic decrease in these medical issues. Some of them even vanished altogether.
Improved Mental Health
In talking with our patients, it’s obvious that many of our patients suffer from low self-esteem, lack of confidence and even anxiety or depression because of their weight. These issues are very common, and it’s amazing how much of them are remedied following gastric bypass surgery. Patients who have the surgery experience an overall improved sense of mental well-being. Suddenly, they’re able to wear clothes they weren’t able to wear previously, and they feel a renewed sense of confidence when they’re in public. These changes all contribute to a better overall sense of mental health.
Improved Stamina Level
Here in Palm Springs, there’s certainly no shortage of things to do. Our gastric bypass patients are always thrilled to discover an improved stamina level that just keeps on improving as the weight comes off. Our older patients are excited to be able to play in the back yard with their grandchildren. Our younger patients frequently enjoy taking up sports or rekindling a love for old hobbies that they once thought were long gone because of their weight.
