Trying to reach a healthy weight goes far beyond looks alone. Your weight is directly tied to your overall wellness, and carrying extra pounds leaves you susceptible to several health problems, including:
Fortunately, Dr. Carlton and his experienced team at LoneStar Bariatrics offer several nonsurgical and surgical strategies to help you lose weight permanently.
You can find a wide range of nonsurgical weight-loss solutions at LoneStar Bariatrics, including nutritional counseling, medical weight-loss management, and gastric balloons.
The first step to weight loss is understanding your diet and how food choices can affect your health. LoneStar Bariatrics offers nutritional counseling with Allison Rezentes, MS, RD/LD, a dietitian specially trained and qualified to help you create a personalized action plan so you can adopt a healthier lifestyle.
Trying to lose weight is a challenge, especially if you’re significantly overweight and want long-term success. Dr. Carlton and his team offer medical weight-loss management programs using common medications like Lomaira™ and Contrave® that provide clinically proven results safely.
The Orbera® managed weight-loss system and Obalon® balloon system are unique, nonsurgical weight-loss options that help you lose weight by temporarily putting a balloon in your stomach to help you eat less. Your balloon remains in place for six months while you undergo a moderate-intensity diet and behavior modification program.
Dr. Carlton and his team offer several minimally invasive surgical solutions to help with significant weight loss. Also known as bariatric procedures, these surgeries not only impact the amount of food you need to eat, but also affect hormones in your gut and change how your body processes food.
Some of the most common surgical weight-loss surgeries include gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, and duodenal switch.
The gastric sleeve procedure helps you lose weight by removing three-quarters of your stomach.
A gastric bypass creates a small pouch in your stomach and bypasses part of your small intestine.
This bariatric procedure is a combination of a gastric sleeve and gastric bypass surgery. During this procedure, Dr. Carlton first reduces your stomach size by performing a gastric sleeve procedure and then bypasses a large portion of your small intestine.
