Is weight loss surgery right for you?


Tanya Smart did as little as possible before her weight-loss surgery. It simply hurt too much to move. As a result, she says, she grew larger, and more pain followed. After surgery with Dr. Adam Beall, Tanya dropped more than 100 pounds, going from a size 24 to size 12, in the first seven months. Tanya today is free of pain and a vigorous walker who enjoys travel and playing outdoors with her grandson. "Why sit at home when you can move?" she asks.

Nicole always battled weight. Diets and years came and went, and the weight was winning. By her early 20s, mobility was a challenge and she had diabetes and high blood pressure. Nicole knew her life was in danger. Now at age 24 and just a few months following surgery, she is the smallest she has been since 10th grade. "When I look in the mirror, I definitely feel more beautiful and definitely happier about myself all the way around.”
