Carli lost more than 72 kilos in 18 months!
As a heavy person, I was absolutely miserable.  I let my weight affect me emotionally.  I was a person that wanted to fade into the background because I knew my size stood out. I had laparoscopic Roux-En-Y Gastric Bypass surgery and lost 72 kg. I am now proud to say that my biggest surgery goal has come true. I have enjoyed all of the benefits of increased health, quality of life, and a smaller size, but now I have the family that I have always dreamed of. In 2007 I gave birth to healthy twins; a boy and a girl!

Brandon lost 104 kilos in less than 24 months!

I had the surgery and the weight truly just melted away along with all my health problems. I lost over 104 kg in less than 2 years! I dropped from a 56-inch waist to a size 34. Life is great. I am happy, healthy and starting college in the fall without a handicap parking space. I feel so blessed to have gone through this journey with the love and support of my family and the staff at Bariatric Surgery Specialists.

Kacey lost over 68 kilos and it changed her life!

Although I never acknowledged my weight to be a hindrance in my life, there were things that I had to admit that I wouldn’t try because I was 150 kg. I did not have the courage to reach out for the things life had to offer me. After losing 68 kg, I have made it a point to try and conquer all those little things I wouldn’t try because of my weight. I have more energy to do the things that I love the most.

Debra lost over 67 kilos and is no longer diabetic!

All of my life I have been the biggest of 10 children and I have never really had a problem with it until I reached 136 kg. In 2004 I began to have different medical problems and had to go on medical leave in June. I weighed 181 kg. It wasn't until I saw an ad for BSS that I found Dr. Marvin and was able to have gastric bypass surgery in April 2005. So far I have lost a total of 67 kg and am no longer a diabetic!

Two years later I am a much healthier 58 kg! Thank you to Dr. Marvin and his staff for their incredible care and guidance. I have been given my life back and I know now there is nothing I can't do!

Jodi after gastric bypass surgery.



Jodi lost 30 kilos in 4 months - and still losing!

I have always been overweight. I tried every diet and weight loss trends, but they never worked. If I did end up losing any weight, I only seemed to gain it back plus a few kg more. I started looking into weight loss surgery in March 2006. I was borderline morbidly obese. I contacted Bariatric Surgical Specialist in April 06. After the first seminar I was sold on the procedure. In only 4 1/2 months I've lost 64 lbs!
