What is Bariatric Surgery?

Bariatric surgery, commonly called weight loss surgery, is a class of medical procedures designed to assist obese patients in weight loss. When all other weight loss options have failed and it appears that obesity poses a larger risk to your health, your doctor may advise bariatric surgery. It is a laparoscopic procedure, or “microsurgery,” in which alterations are made to the patient’s stomach and/or intestine. Many metabolic conditions linked to obesity, such as diabetes and fatty liver disease, can be treated and prevented using this procedure.

Bariatric surgery is quite safe, and recovery is swift; in fact, the patient is expected to walk on the same day as the surgery. During the first few months after surgery, the patient loses weight rapidly. Blood sugar levels also drop to normal levels. Bariatric surgery is perhaps the fastest route for weight loss, which makes it a popular choice for obese and diabetic patients.

Why is Bariatric Surgery Required?

Bariatric surgery changes the way your body metabolizes the food you eat. It is usually recommended for patients with obesity and diabetes mellitus. In particular, it is beneficial for patients with class obesity, which is hard to overcome with diet and exercise alone since in such cases, the body has adapted to the new increased weight.

With the help of bariatric surgery, it is easier to implement lifestyle changes that will enhance your health and maintain your weight in the long term.

Other benefits of bariatric treatment include reducing the risk of weight-related conditions, such as

With a sleeve Gastrectomy, a portion of the stomach is removed surgically to lose weight. After both gastric bypass & sleeve gastrectomy, besides the meal size reduction, there are gut hormone changes as well, which leads to reduced appetite and better blood sugar control.

In this type of procedure, the stomach size is reduced from within either by placement of a soft balloon or suturing of the patient’s stomach. This leads to reduced gastric capacity and hunger.
