San Jose Woman Turns Life Around After Weight-Loss Surgery
Date:9/3/2013

San Jose, CA (PRWEB) September 03, 2013

Dr. Thomas J. Hirai of Advanced Surgical Associates announced today that patient, Michelle Maes, is no longer a victim of the obesity epidemic plaguing this country, because of the latest advancements in bariatric surgery. — especially for those who have not experienced long-term weight loss success through other means. Weight loss can be achieved through various procedures or a combination of them.

Prior to making a decision on choosing to get weight-loss surgery, Michelle reached an all time high of 317 lbs. For Michelle’s height and weight, her BMI was 48. Anyone with a BMI above 40 is considered morbidly obese. The conditions that may arise from this level are hypertension, increased risks for stroke and cardiac arrest, severe acid reflux, to name a few.

When Michelle had her first grandchild in her late thirties, she decided to make a change for the better and for the future of her children and grandchildren. Today, she has 3 children of her own, 4 grandchildren and 6 stepchildren. Michelle wanted to enjoy her life with her family and couldn’t find the energy to keep up. She recalled eating fast food 4 days out of the week, and her family did the same. After “yo-yo” dieting, cutting out sugary drinks and fast food, even exercising often, she was only able to lose 30 lbs., after which she gained it back. Furthermore, she was unable to wean off multiple medications her doctor had prescribed.

After consulting with her family doctor, she chose Dr. Thomas J. Hirai of Advanced Surgical Associates in San Jose, to be her surgeon for weight-loss surgery.
