How Obesity Affects the Body

Obesity affects more than your appearance. This serious medical condition can take a significant toll on your health. Bariatric surgery can provide dramatic health benefits for patients seeking obesity help in Houston. Watch this video to learn more about how excess weight can affect your wellbeing.

Obesity increases the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, and type 2 diabetes. It can interfere with your breathing and cause sleep apnea, leading to fatigue and chronic headaches. Being obese also puts you at risk for joint problems, skin issues, and depression.

At Bariatric Care Centers, we help patients achieve better health through gastric sleeve surgery, gastric bypass surgery, and gastric band procedures. Learn more about weight loss procedures and how we can help you reach your goal weight by calling us at (713) 339-1353.
