Since he’s a prestigious celebrity doctor, it might be interesting to learn that Dr. Now doesn’t have the best success record. When it comes to his patients on My 600-lb Life, many of them fall back into obesity within a few years of their surgery.

This is because the surgeries he offers, gastric bypass surgery or sleeve gastrectomy, are only designed to aid weight loss. They’re not a cure. So, if patients are prone to obesity and don’t change their diet, they’re likely to fall back into bad habits.
