"Weight-loss surgery is a big step. It"s not the right answer for everyone. But for some people, surgery offers a long-term solution to obesity and related health problems.

Diet and exercise alone rarely lead to success, studies show. Even the 2 or 3 percent of people who lose significant weight typically gain it back within a year.
In studies, up to about 90 percent of patients report satisfaction with their bariatric surgery or say they would recommend it to a friend.
A large majority of patients lose more than half their excess weight and keep it off for years.
People who have surgery are much healthier and happier on average than similar people who don"t, studies show. Life expectancy climbs. Most see a dramatic improvement in obesity-related conditions such as sleep apnea or Type 2 diabetes.Bariatric treatment can be the answer to obesity and related health problems."
