Do you wish more than anything to lose those extra pounds and become healthier? Obesity surgery might help you! As thot extra weight melts away you will feel better in no time and that will help you embrace a new mind-set.
Bariatric surgery is an operation on the stomach and/or intestines that helps patients with extreme obesity to lose weight. It restricts food intake, which leads to weight loss, but patients must commit to a lifetime of healthy eating and regular exercise. These healthy habits should help you maintain weight loss after surgery. Please discuss with your health care providers what kind of surgery is suitable for you.
Bariatric surgery may be performed through “open” approaches, which involve cutting the stomach in the standard manner, or laparoscopy.
There are three types of baratric procedures: restrictive surgeries shrink the size of the stomach which reduces the amount of food it can hold (lap band, gastric sleeve); malabsorptive surgeries rearrange and/or remove part of the digestive system which then limits the amount of calories and nutrients that the body can absorb (biliopancreatic diversion, biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch); combination – most types of bariatric surgery carry at least a small element of both components (gastric bypass, duodenal switch).
After the surgery, you can expect to lose a lot of weight. If you have weight-related medical conditions, such as like type II diabetes or sleep apnea, they may improve. Also, almost all people who get weight loss surgery say their quality of life improves. Most people stay in the hospital 2 to 3 days, and get back to normal activities in 3 to 5 weeks. If the surgery must be “open,” healing takes longer. Some common side effects include constipation, dumping syndrome, gallstones, wound infections. Most people experience no serious problems after weight loss surgery. but they have to completely change their lifestyle and eating habits in order to maintain their healthy weight.
