And if you think weight loss surgery is for you... research shows it may lead to major heart health benefits.

In a large review of research from the Cleveland Clinic -- doctors say nearly 65-percent of patients brought down their blood pressure and cholesterol levels nearly 5 years post-surgery.

Nearly three-quarters improved their diabetes conditions.  the studies included about 20-thousand people.

The surgery also seemed to remodel the structure of some patients' hearts -- reducing thickness in heart muscle.
