Weight loss surgery or Obesity Surgery or Bariatric Surgery is used as a last resort to treat people who are morbidly or dangerously obese. This surgery is recommended to treat people with potentially life-threatening obesity when other conservative treatments, such as lifestyle changes, haven’t worked. The surgeons who do weight-loss surgeries are called bariatric surgeons.
Weight loss surgery has proved to be effective option for dangerously obese people in reducing their excess body fat. You are dangerously obese if you have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 40 or above or have a Body Mass Index of 35 or above and have another serious health condition such as type 2 diabetes or high blood pressure that could be improved if you lose weight.
Body Mass Index (BMI) is a weight-for-height index that is commonly used to know whether you are underweight, overweight and obese. A BMI is defined as your weight in kilograms divided by the square of your height in metres (kg/m2)
|BMI =||Your Weight in Kilograms|
|(Your height in metres) x (Your height in metres)|
A Weight-loss surgery helps you to lose weight and lower your risk of medical problems associated with morbid obesity. Weight loss surgery may be restrictive and/or malabsorptive .A weight loss surgery may contribute to weight loss by physically limiting the amount of food that your stomach can hold. This may make you feel full stomach early and thus limit your desire to eat more. A weight loss surgery may also contribute to weight loss by reducing the absorption of calories and nutrients in the body. This is done by shortening or bypassing a part of the small intestine, which reduces the amount of calories and nutrients that your body absorbs. There are four common types of weight-loss surgeries done at our network obesity surgery hospitals in India.
In a Minimally Invasive Weight Loss Surgery or Laparoscopic Weight Loss Surgery, your surgeon will make several small incisions to make ports rather than one large incision, and use long, thin surgical instruments. A narrow video camera is also passed through one of these ports so that the surgeon can view the operative site on a nearby video monitor. Our network obesity surgery centres in India use minimally invasive techniques for weight-loss surgery whenever possible. The advantages of Minimally Invasive Weight Loss Surgery are smaller incisions, less pain, shorter hospital stays and faster recovery than traditional open surgery.
You must understand that a weight loss surgery is not a quick fix remedy or magic cure for obesity. You have to stick to a rigorous and lifelong plan afterwards to avoid putting weight back on or long-term complications. You need to follow a carefully controlled diet and regular exercise as prescribed by your surgeon.
As long as you are able to stick to agreed lifestyle plan after your surgery, a weight loss surgery can effectively reduce your weight and treat conditions associated with obesity, such as diabetes or high blood pressure.
Just like any other major surgery, a weight loss surgery carries some risk of complications like internal bleeding or a blood clot inside the leg or a blood clot or other blockage inside the lungs.
