MasterChef Judge Graham Elliot Drops 150 Pounds in 8 Months With Help of Gastric Sleeve Surgery

New York Bariatric Group a National Leader for Innovative, Safe and Effective Bariatric Surgery

New Hyde Park, NY – MasterChef judge Graham Elliot is the latest celebrity to enjoy quick and phenomenal results with bariatric surgery. The celebrity chef lost 150 pounds in only eight months, a remarkable and inspirational journey made possible by gastric sleeve surgery.

Elliot has been transformed by his procedure, dropping from 405 pounds to 255 pounds in well under a year. Results like this would take at least two to three years without weight loss surgery, if they were achieved at all.

The gastric sleeve procedure, also known as sleeve gastrectomy surgery, is an amazingly powerful weapon in the fight against obesity. The stomach itself is made smaller, reduced to the size of a banana, physically restricting the types and quantities of food which are able to be eaten and digested.

Like many others who struggled with their weight, Elliot found it difficult to achieve his weight loss goals without the help of surgery. With gastric sleeve surgery, however, mental willpower is no longer waiting to destroy a diet plan. Instead, changes must be made, and when combined with exercise and a healthy lifestyle, wonderful changes occur.

Bariatric surgery continues to become a more widely utilized tool in the fight for real weight loss results, and permanent success. It’s not only about physical appearances and improved self-esteem, either. Bariatric surgery continues to be embraced by more and more medical experts as a go-to solution for producing dramatic weight loss which slashes the risk of obesity related diseases and deaths, and even reverses the course of diabetes and heart disease.

The New York Bariatric Group is one of the leading choices for innovative, safe and effective bariatric surgery. With three of the nation’s top surgeons, NYBG offers all of the latest and best types of bariatric surgery, including the gastric sleeve procedure which Graham Elliot recently underwent.
