Weight Loss Surgery Boosts Self-Confidence and Long-Term Health

Bariatric treatments provided at Beverly Hills Physicians can decrease risk of cancer and issues like urinary incontinence in women.

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- It is often said that those who suffer from obesity find themselves caught in a frustrating cycle – the disease can severely impact both one's health, physical attractiveness and self-image, which then leads to depression and increased over-eating. Making matters worse, obesity raises one's risk of diabetes, heart disease, stroke, arthritis, some cancers, and even issues like uterine cancer in some women. While it can be depressing to learn the unsettling truth about obesity, it's important to keep in mind that there is always reason for hope – particularly for those who seek weight loss solutions from renowned specialists like the team at Beverly Hills Physicians.

At BHP, the medical group's health, beauty and wellness specialists are perhaps best known for the results they garner through various plastic surgery treatments, but their efforts in weight loss surgery and bariatric treatment are similarly effective. BHP's many board-certified specialists perform procedures like gastric sleeve, Lap Band, and Roux-en-Y gastric bypass that don't just help patients lose weight – they fundamentally change their relationship to food on a primary level. The result is often rapid, sustainable and safe weight loss, while increasing the patient's energy and helping to establish a more positive outlook. 

Of course, the effect of a rapid physical transformation into a thinner, more aesthetically-pleasing body shape can go a long way toward renewing self-confidence and enjoyment in day-to-day life. However, the effects of weight loss surgery go much further than that. Weight Loss Surgery Channel reported on a recent study from the University HealthSystem Consortium found that bariatric treatment could reduce the risk of uterine cancer by an incredible 71% compared to overweight individuals who don't undergo the treatment. 

Further still, "improvement in urinary incontinence may be another longer-term benefit of weight loss," said Leslee Subak, MD at the American Urogynecologic Society and International Urogynecological Association 2014 Scientific Meeting. Medscape reports that the majority of women with urinary incontinence are overweight, and the risk is four times greater among obese women. Putting an end to potentially embarrassing incontinence can certainly help women to feel less self-conscious, providing a confidence boost that can go a long way toward allowing women to achieve their personal goals and embrace opportunities.

If you're suffering from obesity, don't fall victim to the belief that your situation is hopeless. After all, even modest weight loss can improve or prevent health problems, and with bariatric treatment from BHP, you have a very good chance of experiencing significant weight loss.

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged.

The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
