Bariatric Surgery is the best treatment for weight loss.
Bariatric surgery refers to a surgical procedure that leads to successful long term weight loss. Bariatric surgery is done through tiny keyholes on the tummy requiring 2 to 3 days of hospital stay. It is the best choice when all other attempts like dieting, exercise, gym, aerobics fail to help you to lose weight.
Bariatric surgery should not be considered a cosmetic procedure, as it not only helps to lose weight but also helps one to get rid of associated problems like diabetes, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, obesity-related infertility, obesity-related knee pain, obstructive sleep apnea and many more.
Bariatric surgery could be restrictive, malabsorptive and a combination of the two. Common restrictive procedures are the gastric band and the sleeve gastrectomy. A combination of restriction and malabsorption is the gastric bypass and the mini gastric bypass.
