Weight Loss Surgery and a Bride Who Can Finally Wear Her Dream Wedding Dress Highlight Long Term Benefits, says Dr. Feiz & Associates

An October 21 article on Yahoo Lifestyle reported on a New York woman who was able to lose 185 pounds through weight loss surgery and who has been able to maintain that loss since 2005. The woman spoke about her past struggle with severe obesity, from experiencing knee pain when she walked to being too large to wear the dress she’d always hoped to wear on her wedding day. Fourteen years later and several dress sizes smaller, the article reports that she is finally able to wear a dream dress as she prepares to renew her vows with her husband. Los Angeles-based weight loss surgery specialists Dr. Feiz & Associates notes that bariatric surgery is making these kinds of stories a great deal more common.

Dr. Feiz & Associates comments that, for those struggling with obesity, losing the weight is very hard but that’s not the only problem. It’s keeping the weight off and maintaining the new weight that is typically even far more challenging. The clinic explains that, while it is sometimes possible to slim down naturally through diet, exercise and strong self-discipline, success is short-lived in the large majority of cases. The clinic says that the body is wired to fight anything it deems a potential threat, including substantial weight loss which it takes as a sign of imminent famine. So, production of the hormone responsible for the nagging feelings of hunger that make weight loss so difficult – already present in larger amounts in overweight and obese people – goes into overdrive. Plagued by ever-increasing cravings which feel exactly like hunger, the clinic says that it’s no wonder why the vast majority of people who attempt to defeat obesity on their own eventually backslide and regain all of the weight that they have worked so to get rid of – sometimes with a few extra pounds attached.

What a weight loss procedure such as a sleeve gastrectomy does is reduce the size of the stomach, says Dr. Feiz & Associates. By removing a significant portion of the stomach, individuals are discouraged from overeating as it becomes uncomfortable, decreasing their appetite – but that’s only part of the story. In the process of reducing the size of the stomach, production of the primary hormone associated with hunger, called ghrelin, is also reduced substantially. The clinic notes that patients still have to work hard to change their lifestyles but, without the constant hormonally-induced cravings for food, attaining and sustaining substantial weight loss becomes a great deal easier.
