Weight Loss surgery, Who is it for?
A few months ago I saw our new neighbour struggling to walk up the stairs, it was one of those days when the elevator was stalled for service. Being overweight for years, he shared with a hint of distress on his face how he missed playing an outdoor game with his children.
The extra pounds of fat can be a dismal affair to be lived with. So if you have been struggling to tie your shoelaces or joyfully take the stairs sometimes, you might be dealing with obesity and perhaps look at a weight loss surgery.
Weight-loss surgery, also referred to as Bariatric surgery helps you lose weight by changing how your stomach and small intestine handle the food you eat, so that you feel full after eating a small amount of food. It may be the right way for you to enhance weight loss if you haven’t found success with exercise, diet or medication. Furthermore, studies have confirmed that Bariatric Surgery helps obese people overcome certain diseases like cancer, heart disease, type 2 diabetes and joint pain and thus endowing a longer, healthier life.
Understanding Weight- loss surgery and the types
Weight-loss surgery are of several types the most common being Sleeve Gastrectomy and Gastric Bypass. Both are safe, effective and proven procedures, all performed using laparoscopic surgery, a minimally invasive technique. Your cosmetic surgeon will help determine if you are the best candidate for each of the procedures.

The assessment of BMI (body mass index) is the first step taken by your surgeon to determine the type of weight-loss surgery. Procedures such as Gastric Sleeve or Gastric Bypass will help reduce your BMI and overall health conditions both physically and emotionally. A BMI of 35 or more generally indicates morbidobesity and a straight qualifier for Weight loss surgery.
Some Alterations with Bariatric surgery offer Life saving Advantages
Weight-loss surgery has given people dealing with obesity a new lease of life with benefits that go beyond cosmetic appearances. Literally adding years to life by reducing the risk of chronic illnesses linked to obesity has been the greatest gift granted by Bariatric Surgery. Moreover, people who have not undergone weight-loss surgery and started dieting tend to get hungrier with strict eating regulations, often turning back to old eating habits. With low appetite caused with weight-loss surgery, patients feel satiated with smaller meals and so lesser modifications to lifestyle changes.
It is however important to remember that surgery is only a tool to accelerate weight loss. Patients who follow a balanced diet as recommended by physician, taking daily supplements, exercise and lifestyle changes will have the best chance for life-long success with weight-loss surgery.
