INVESTING IN YOURSELF

INVEST IN YOUR FUTURE

"All in all, it is easily the best investment that I have made."
– Danielle, Gastric Sleeve

Investing in Yourself Is the Best Investment of All

You’re here because you have not given up. You’re still searching for help in overcoming your weight once and for all. You want to get off the yo-yo diet merry-go-round. And you’re beginning to open your mind to a different approach. SmartShape™ offers modern weight loss procedures that are all based on the same principle: helping you feel fuller with less food. Like all weight loss options, these procedures need to be combined with exercise and a well-balanced and nutritionally-sound diet to be most effective.

Stop Being Weighed Down

Surgical weight loss procedures might also seem to cost a lot –– but when you consider how much you’ve spent on traditional diets and the less obvious costs of being overweight, such as plus-sized clothing, prescription medication and weight-related health issues, it becomes clear just how valuable a lasting solution can be. A Gastric Sleeve, Mini Gastric Bypass, or LAP-BAND® weight loss program from SmartShape is a one-time investment in the rest of your life.

Invest in Lasting Results

Studies have shown that people achieve and maintain an average weight loss of 60% of excess body weight in the first year following the gastric sleeve procedure. The modern surgical weight loss procedures available at the SmartShape Weight Loss Centre offer a lasting approach by reducing the size of your stomach, so you feel full with smaller amounts of food and hunger cravings between meals are lessened. With weight loss comes increased energy that makes including exercise in your daily life easier.

Weighing the Costs of our Modern Weight Loss Procedures

Once you account for the total cost of other weight loss methods like diets, workout plans, and medication, among many others, the one-time cost of weight loss surgery easily outperforms and out-values traditional weight loss options and typically provides a more lasting solution.
