Dr Younan Nowzaradan

Dr Nowzaradan

El Dr Younan Nowzaradan is a bariatric surgeon with over 30 years of experience who is known for treating more challenging weight loss patients through bariatric surgery that he has previously been denied by other surgical professionals, especially the super obese. He is also known for his participation in the TV show My life with 300 kilos.

Bariatric surgery is a type of surgery performed to help morbidly obese people lose weight. There are several types of bariatric surgery, such as adjustable gastric banding, gastric bypass, and gastric sleeve. These surgeries work by reducing the size of the stomach or by changing the way the body absorbs food. Bariatric surgery is an option for morbidly obese people who have been unable to lose weight through diet and exercise. However, it is important to remember that bariatric surgery is a tool to help people lose weight and improve their health, but it is not a cure for obesity. Patients should follow a healthy eating regimen and exercise regularly after surgery to maintain a healthy weight.

    I weigh 84 kilos. I suffer from thyroid. It is so difficult for me to lose weight because they ban me from surgery and I have not been able to lose weight.

  24. It seems so simple on TV programs to lose weight... But when you are a person who enjoys eating and you get anxious...


    1. You need a professional to take care of you. Just find a good obesity center and only eat healthy diets. It will not do you any good to fast, but to eat other kinds of food.

    2. Hello, if I were in that situation, I would go to a doctor named nowzaradan, he is very good, he has a good way of helping and his voice is a bit hoarse and sweet at the same time, the tea will help if you want it, of course, that doctor is in Houston but I know that you can lose weight you can do it and if you continue like this the doctor will approve a surgery I don't know which one but if you can continue like this you can Karla ️‍️‍
