Gabourey Sidibe’s Revelations Highlight the Real Reasons Patients Obtain Weight Loss Surgeries, says Dr. Feiz & Associates
Date:4/3/2017

A March 8 article on People describes how Gabourey Sidibe of “Empire” is going public with a weight loss procedure she had last year. The 33 year-old actress, who first rocketed to mass public attention with her Oscar-nominated role in 2009’s “Precious,” reveals in a new memoir how she has struggled with eating disorders as well as anxiety and depression before her and her brother were both diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, spurring her decision to obtain a bariatric surgery. Los Angeles-based weight loss clinic Dr. Feiz & Associates notes that Ms. Sidibe’s experience is typical of patients who turn to weight loss procedures.

Dr. Feiz & Associates note that people who have not had to struggle with severe obesity often assume that losing weight is a simple matter of self-control. The clinic notes, however, that the reality is that the human body is designed to remain at its present weight, whatever weight that may be. Thus, severely obese individuals who attempt to make the dietary changes necessary to end their obesity are faced with highly persistent hormonally driven urges to overeat that are practically indistinguishable from actual hunger. The result, the clinic points out, is that very few people are able to permanently lose a substantial amount of weight on their own. As Ms. Sidibe puts it in her new book, “The surgery wasn’t the easy way out. I wasn’t cheating by getting it done, I wouldn’t have been able to lose as much as I’ve lost without it.”

The weight loss clinic also notes that it’s telling that it was the diabetes diagnosis and worries about her health which finally spurred Ms. Sidibe to get the procedure. Dr. Feiz & Associates notes that many members of the public tend to put cosmetic issues front and center when contemplating weight loss but adds that, more often, severely obese weight loss patients are moved by urgent health concerns, whether it’s a life and death matter or important quality of life issues. As Ms. Sidibe puts it, “It has taken me years to realize that what I was born with is all beautiful…I did not get this surgery to be beautiful. I did it so I can walk around comfortably in heels.”

Patients with a BMI (body mass index) of 40 or over, or 35 and over with related health problems (comorbidities), may be eligible for a bariatric procedure. Readers who would like to find out more about the available weight loss surgery options are invited to contact Dr. Feiz & Associates by phone at (800) 868-5946.
