Non-Surgical Treatment

Treatment of obesity entails weight loss and weight loss maintenance. The complications of obesity are resolved or ameliorated with weight loss and maintenance. Currently, non-surgical treatments are usually effective in inducing weight loss but weight loss maintenance are only achieved if the treatments are continued in the long term. Weight regain and return of complications are the norm if treatments are stopped.
