In brief: Diet and excersize
The standared answer is a good diet and excersize program, depending on the extent of obesity, a good program can go very far. However if that fails and you meet special criteria surgical weight loss options have come a long way.
These days procedures can be outpatient operations or 1-2 day hospital stays with very safe results in the right facility. Your best source though should be your pcp.
