Weight Loss for Life is our program's guiding principle — because weight loss surgery is life-transforming. People who are able to maintain an appropriate weight enjoy longer life expectance and fewer health problems than those who are severely overweight. Our program of lifelong weight-loss maintenance, follow-up, and support is the key to Weight Loss for Life.
