Living in the Northwest definitely has its perks. Besides the incredible landscape and comfortable climate it also holds some of the nations top medical facilities for cancer research and children’s hospitals. It also is one of the leaders of Bariatric bypass and lap band surgeries. If you are considered morbidly obese and are contemplating a surgical procedure to help you along with that, do yourself a favor and pay a visit to the Northwest Weight Loss Surgery Center. Located in Everett, Washington this center has paved the way to patients beginning a new phase in their lives and making a fresh start to become healthier and happier.
The Northwest Weight Loss Center specializes in many different areas of obesity. Doctors, nutritionists and weight loss specialists work with you to determine what the best solution is for you to reach your optimum healthy weight and what will work best for you in order to achieve that. Surgery is not always the answer and the surgeons at the NWWLSC do not automatically decide to perform a surgery if it is not 100% in the nest interest of the patient. Sometimes, working with a nutritionist is the only thing that you need to jumpstart your way to a healthier and more active lifestyle. However, if it is determined, through a variety of tests that you would in fact benefit from surgical weight loss procedure, your surgeon will help you decide which type of surgery is the best for you. For an extremely morbidly obese person, they would most like benefit from gastric bypass surgery. This procedure is extremely invasive, but often times very necessary to help a patient lose the weight. A “new stomach” is created where food is “bypassed” to, making it impossible for a large amount of food to enter at any one given time. The recovery time for this procedure is about 3-4 weeks and you are more likely to suffer (minor and fixable) complications with this surgery. Lap band surgery is another option that is far less invasive and can be reversed if you ever decide that the surgery just wasn’t for you. A band is placed around your stomach and a small balloon is inserted by that band. When the balloon is inflated, it gives your body the illusion that you are full and therefore will choose not to eat any more food.
Paying a visit to the Northwest Weight Loss Surgery Center will help you to be completely informed of the procedures that they provide as well as pre and post-operative diet restrictions, in addition to weight loss maintenance once you have achieved your desired goal weight.
