Excess weight has almost completely destroyed my life - I lost my job, and in fact I was a senior manager, my wife left me and went to a thin and hot man. Is it true that after the surgery, my potency will be restored?

According to statistics, the problem with attraction, potency and sterility are found in 50% of obese men. "Excess" fat tissue does not give the opportunity to normally produce male hormones, causing increased emergence of women ones: often obese men have effeminate features, the "female" figure and a high tone of voice. Operation of weight loss not only restores normal metabolism, but also significantly increases potency and libido.
