Transform Your Life
Restore your health and regain confidence with a proven long-term weight-loss solution. The experienced weight loss surgery team in our MyNewSelf bariatrics clinic is ready to guide you on your journey to a healthier and more active life.

For the severely obese, carrying around extra pounds is not only life threatening, but may limit life activities others take for granted. 

 

Severe obesity means being overweight to the point where your body may be prone to diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease and a wide range of other serious disorders.

 

Weight loss surgery is generally designed for those with a body mass index equal to or greater than 40, or equal to or greater than 35 with serious co-morbidities.

Laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding with the Lap Band® is also FDA-approved for weight loss surgery in people with a BMI of 30 to 35 who have at least one obesity-related condition.
