Are You Ready to Reshape Your Life?

If you are struggling with weight loss, you are not alone. Recent studies show that more than 190 million Americans and 61% of Maine adults are obese or overweight.

Obesity goes much deeper than outward appearance; it affects every aspect of your well-being and can lead to other diseases such as heart disease, type II diabetes, sleep apnea, high blood pressure, and an increased risk of stroke.

Severe obesity is a chronic condition that is difficult to treat through diet and exercise alone. Managing your weight with the help of EMMC Surgical Weight Loss means more than losing pounds, it means gaining the power to reshape your life. Together, we’ll work toward changing the way you look at food, decreasing your medication use, reducing your risk of obesity related diseases, increasing your energy, and improving the quality of the time you spend with your family and friends.

Weight Loss Surgery: A Commitment to Change

Weight loss surgery promotes weight loss by restricting food intake and, in some procedures, interrupting the digestive process. The decision to undergo bariatric surgery cannot be taken lightly. While this procedure can be a tool for life-changing weight loss, it also requires your commitment to permanent lifestyle changes, including maintaining a proper diet and participating in regular physical activity.
