Obesity is a disease and it can be life-threatening, unless intervention is undertaken.
There are two types of weight gain associated with obesity:
Apart from reduced life expectancy, self esteem issues and the social stigma which can be attached to obesity, carrying extra weight puts pressure on internal organs and can cause ongoing health complications such as heart disease, diabetes, joint pain, cholesterol and blood pressure issues.
Gastric sleeve surgery, for example, involves the laparoscopic removal of the outer part of the stomach which converts the stomach from a sac into a narrow banana-shaped tube. This surgery results in patients feeling less hungry. Patients who undergo Gastric Sleeve surgery lose on average 60% of their body weight within 12 months.
Super can also be used to pay the gap with Private Health Insurance. Melbourne Gastro Surgery helps support the patient during any waiting periods and can assist with organising SuperCare to help pay the gap. To find out about their Save for Safe Program please Click Here
