Weight Loss Procedures


While diet, exercise, and a healthy lifestyle are ideal for everyone and will help some people lose those holiday pounds or shed that “baby weight”, for individuals who are severely obese, losing weight is simply not that easy. In fact, obesity is a progressive disease that is frustratingly resistant to long-term weight loss through diet and exercise. Severe obesity leads to hormonal and metabolic changes that cause the body to fight against weight loss efforts, enhance the body’s fat storage capabilities, and even alter the body’s appetite regulators to increase food intake, making traditional weight loss efforts frustrating, impossible, and even counter-productive. Moreover, health risks brought on by obesity, especially hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and type 2 diabetes, may not effectively be treated by weight loss alone. Therefore, individuals suffering from severe obesity and the related health risks often remain locked in a fruitless cycle of temporary weight loss, relapse, and even additional weight gain without altering the metabolic problems that undermine their health and their quality of life.

If you are severely overweight, metabolic or bariatric (weight loss) surgery, coupled with dietary and lifestyle changes and a dedicated support network, may be the only way to reverse the damage done to the body by this progressive disease, achieving true long-term weight loss and restoration of your health and well-being.*

At The Center for Metabolic and Obesity Surgery, located in Altamonte Springs, Florida, we understand that metabolic and bariatric (weight loss) surgery is not a “cop-out” or “the easy way out”, but for many people, the only way to safely and successfully alter the body’s food-processing mechanisms, to truly enable the body to lose significant amounts of weight and improve serious health risks such as type 2 diabetes. Dr. Wiljon Beltre, a gifted and caring Board Certified metabolic and bariatric surgeon, employs only the latest surgical techniques that safely and effectively achieve weight loss through appetite reduction, correcting the body’s energy expenditure mechanisms, and/or decreasing energy intake. Unlike dieting, these measures can correct the alterations to the body caused by severe obesity and enable healthy lifestyle choices to have the effect they are meant to have.

Dr. Beltre, lead surgeon at The Center for Metabolic and Obesity Surgery, brings a comprehensive, holistic approach to the process of intensive weight loss, involving a dedicated team of weight loss experts and support staff to see you through your entire weight loss journey, as well as a complete range of metabolic and bariatric surgery options, including:

Each of these options offers a different surgical approach to weight loss, and while all of the techniques performed at The Center for Metabolic and Obesity Surgery will enable significant weight loss for most patients, each procedure offers different advantages and entails different risks. The correct option for you will depend on your unique anatomy, metabolism, and medical history, as well as your specific weight loss goals and ability to commit to long-term lifestyle changes. At your initial private consultation, Dr. Beltre will conduct a thorough medical evaluation, patiently discuss all of the options with you to ensure that you fully understand the strengths and weaknesses of each procedure, and work carefully with you to select the bariatric surgery most likely to achieve your individual weight loss goals.
