The Top 3 Reasons Why The Centre For Weight Control Works To Consistently Help You Reduce and Maintain Your Body's Stores of Fat
Improving your appearance to maintain long term weight loss
The biggest issue with rapid massive weight loss is the skin that’s left behind. As your body sheds fat, your skin is unable to retract because it has been stretched out for so long. Once you hit your ideal weight, the loose skin becomes even more apparent.
Body contouring surgery is a set of plastic surgery procedures that redefines the shape of your body to improve it aesthetically. A customized procedure can remove excess, sagging skin left behind from massive weight loss, revealing the leaner profile you have achieved. It may even help you maintain your weight loss.
You'll be able to better maintain your weight loss
A recent study conducted by researchers at the Henry Ford Hospital in Michigan have found that men and women who had bariatric surgery then underwent a body contouring procedure were able to better maintain their weight loss than those who didn’t. Patients who underwent contouring surgery experienced an average decrease in BMI of 18.24 at 2.5 years after their bariatric surgery, compared to just 12.45 for those who didn’t.
Getting to your ideal weight and maintaining it is a longer term plan that you know is extremely difficult to do. We help make the process of becoming and staying healthier much easier.
2. Food is an Addiction — Diets And Supplements Just Feed The Habit, We Don't
The diet and supplement industry is worth billions of dollars. It's big business, and only business manufacturing these products are benefiting. You are not. It's in their best interest to keep you failing, time and time again, because you'll keep spending with the hope that the next secret pill or contraption will help you lose weight. Unfortunately, it will not; it will just do the reverse. A University of California study in 2007 found that dieting actually makes you gain weight in the long-term. While you may lose 5% to 10% of their initial weight by the sixth month, you'll most likely regain it, and more, by the sixth month. In addition, a 2008 study conducted by the American Psychological Association found diets that restrict calorie intake are not sustainable.
When you go on a diet, food becomes an obsession. You start thinking about what you can eat for your next meal and beat yourself up over what you may have eaten. The restrictions a diet places on you can be suffocating, stressful and damaging to your self-esteem. There is nothing inspirational about diets, and they are not motivating—which is why most diets fail miserably.
A more sensible eating plan is better at helping you achieve your goal weight. Don't even think of it as a diet!
3. You're Not Operated On Unless You Pass The Screening Process, Which Sets You Up For Your Best Chance At Success
You will only be able to pursue treatment if it is medically-sound for you. To determine suitability, you will be assessed by Dr. Guirguis to ensure the safety of the procedure. You may be a good candidate if you say "yes" to the following:
- You have a BMI of 40 or higher. Your weight may also be considered if you weigh at least twice your ideal weight. To calculate your BMI, divide your weight in pounds by your height in inches squared (in2), then multiply this amount by 704.5.
- You haven't succeeded in controlling your weight long term. You may have lost weight, but you keep packing it back on.
- You do not have a health condition that causes your weight gain and/or obesity.
- You have a sincere committment to eating better and leading a healthier lifestyle, something that you'll find much easier to do with treatment.
This screening process involves questions that are designed to select the right candidates for treatment. As a result, Dr. Guirguis has been able to achieve a high rate of satisfaction from his patients. If you are approved for treatment, you'll most likely experience the same positive results without wasting your time and money on something that won't work for you.
