Helping you achieve a healthier lifestyle.
71% of men and 56% of women in Australia are obese or overweight. It's a staggering statistic but demonstrates just how many people out there are struggling with an unhealthy lifestyle.
By the time you consider obesity surgery, you will likely have been battling a weight problem for much of your life and have tried many different diets, appetite suppressants, antidepressants, and other weight loss medications or weight loss treatments. These weight loss medications techniques may have resulted in temporary or limited success but in many cases, any weight loss will be rapidly regained and sometimes exceeded.
