A new year provides the perfect opportunity to reevaluate our lifestyle and resolve to do better this time around the sun — to eat better, exercise more, and stress less. Unfortunately, by March, many of us are already feeling defeated by how poorly we’ve handled our annual “do-over.” Maybe it’s time to rethink those resolutions. It’s for real folks like us that Drs. Folahan Ayoola and Tarik Al-Kalla and the staff at Weight Loss Specialists of North Texas offer no blame, no shame — just compassionate care that gets results.

It’s what they’ve done for thousands of men and women, partnering with them to lose weight and keep it off, restoring their health, reviving their relationships, expanding their opportunities, and advancing their quality of life. If you’ve been made to feel ashamed or lazy or “less than” because of excess weight, the shame stops here.

Five-star internet reviews relate the triumphal stories of people sharing the struggles they endured with obesity-related conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, GERD, and sleep apnea and the pharmaceuticals they took just get through the day. After surgery and weight loss with the help of Weight Loss Specialists of North Texas, many report they no longer needed medication because they no longer suffered with those conditions.

Many were living with joint pain caused by excess weight and were physically limited by their size. Obesity affected every aspect of their lives. They’d tried diet and exercise and felt like nothing worked. Then, they partnered with Weight Loss Specialists of North Texas where they found a comprehensive approach to weight loss that made all the difference.

More than life-changing bariatric surgery, Weight Loss Specialists offers a 360-degree approach to weight loss, including nutrition education, Live Free vitamins to supplement their diet, and Rebirth Medical Aesthetics, which offers minimally invasive aesthetic procedures and skin resurfacing to help tighten lose skin after weight loss. There’s even a monthly support group where patients can share their struggles and celebrate their successes. Patient education begins before surgery, but it doesn’t stop after. The team continues to partner with each patient as they begin their new, healthier life.

Drs. Ayoola and Al-Kalla offer weight-loss medication and counseling as well as an array of weight-loss procedures including duodenal switch, gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, and revisional bariatric surgery.

“Obesity is a medical condition,” Dr. Ayoola said. “There are three ways to address any medical condition — lifestyle changes, medication, or procedures. If your BMI is under 27, we recommend you make lifestyle changes to obtain and maintain a healthy weight. If it’s over 27, it’s time to consider medication. But if it’s over 35, it may be time for a surgical procedure. In the end, we see the best, long-lasting results with a combination of surgery, medication, and lifestyle changes.

“You’ve got this. And we’ve got you.”
