Weight-loss surgery can greatly benefit those who struggle with obesity.

 

Those who will benefit most from the surgery are the severely obese. This includes people who are about 100 pounds or more overweight and who face serious health issues brought on by their weight.

 

For these people, weight-loss surgery can help them achieve their long-term weight-control goals.
