Obese patients are at greater risk for developing post-operative incisional complications such as infections, hernias, and dehiscence (rupture of the wound along surgical suture). These patients can also face an overall greater difficulty with healing due to the diabetic and metabolic syndrome co-morbidities associated with obesity. #WeightLossService #BariatricSurgery #CarrolltonWeightLoss

Studies have shown that morbid obesity poses a great health risk. Obesity threatens psychological health as well as physical health, and it significantly increases the risk of early death. If you are 18 year old or older, are willing to make significant changes to your lifestyle, and have a body mass index (BMI) greater than 40, you may be a candidate for weight loss surgery. #BariatricSurgery #WeightLossService

Obesity is a condition that should be taken very seriously. Patients who are severely overweight have been shown to be at an increased risk for a number of health problems, including hypertension. Hypertension should be of special concern to these patients because it can lead to heart disease and heart attacks. #BariatricSurgery
