Did you go under any type of weight loss surgery and you didn’t lose weight?
We have the answer and the greatest experience.
There are previously weight loss patients operated with techniques such as gastric band, gastric plication, gastroplasty, even gastric bypass, where there weren’t successful results or there was a negative quality of life. Making and individual evaluation on each patient we can achieve a successful surgery in order to obtain our weight loss objectives.

Severe or Morbid Obesity
Severe obesity is an excess of energy stored as fat. It is a disease of multifactorial origin: genetic, metabolic, psychological, social, cultural, etc. It is correlated to BMI (body mass index). Severe obesity is associated with increased premature mortality. Heavy people especially young die much earlier than thin young individuals.
Obesity is a disease complicated with other pathologies such as hypertension, diabetes, hypercolesterolemia, coronary and cardiac disease, sleeping apnea, gallbladder disorder, fatty liver, arthritis, varicose veins, post-flebitic syndrome with leg ulcers and loss of self-esteem. Obese women have a higher risk of having some type of cancer: breast, endometrial, cervical, ovarian and gallbladder. Obese men have a higher risk of colon cancer and prostate cancer.
The patient with severe obesity suffers discrimination and lack of respect by society and the same medical personnel.

Body mass index (BMI)
The most practical way is calculating the body mass index that combines weight and height. It is obtained dividing weight (kilograms) by height times height.
|Category||Body mass index values|
|Normal||< 25 kg/m2|
|Overweight||26 – 29 kg/m2|
|Simple severe obesity||30 – 35 kg/m2|
|Morbid obesity||40 – 49 kg/m2|
|Superobesity||50 – kg/m2|
