Patient Photos

After so many unsuccessful attempts at weight loss, you may have a difficult time believing that you can lose weight, and look and feel better than you ever dreamed. Viewing these photos of other patients who have undergone weight loss surgery at our San Francisco practice can sometimes help bridge that gap of possibility. These photos show that people just like you have, once and for all, conquered their weight issues and begun to live the life they always wanted.

View our beautiful 2011 PacLap Calendar featuring images of several of our patients enjoying their new lives, and the activities that bariatric surgery has made possible.

After viewing these photos, you may also want to read our patient testimonials and learn what obesity surgery in the Bay Area is really like for our patients. These stories and photos can help you to decide if bariatric surgery is right for you, and to help you set realistic expectations for your procedure should you choose to proceed.

For Your Health

While you can see the amazing results many of our patients have achieved, what you might not see is how much healthier they are after surgery. Post-surgical results include a reduction in a wide range of co-morbidities, including diabetes (97% resolved), high cholesterol (96% resolved) and hypertension (85% resolved). It is possible to both look better and feel better through weight loss surgery!
