OBESITY (BARIATRIC) SURGERY What is obesity or bariatric surgery?
Bariatric surgery: it is a weight loss surgery, refers to the operations designed to reduce weight (bariatric come from the Greek meaning pressure or weight). Operations may restrict the amount you are able to eat (restrictive operations such as the gastric band sleeve gastrectomy) or reduce the amount of food you can absorb or both limit the quantity you'll eat and cut back the quantity you'll absorb (gastric bypass or mini stomachal bypass). The term doesn't embrace procedures for surgical removal of body fat like liposuction or anaplasty (tummy tuck).
Why do Bariatric Surgery ?

Health improvements after Gastric bypass
Health Problem Gastric bypass
Cured of diabetes, (Off all medication) 84% , Diabetes improved 93%
High cholesterol improved 95%
High blood pressure, (Off all medication) 68%, High blood pressure- improved 87%
Sleep Apnoea- improved 94%

How surgery works?
Obesity surgery works by serving to to scale back the quantity of calories that square measure out there in your body.
There are two ways this can be achieved surgically:Restriction - by reducing the dimensions of the abdomen, solely little meals may be eaten up and therefore the appetence is glad
Malabsorption - by bypassing a part of the tiny viscus, less calories from food square measure absorbed by the body
The operations that work by restriction are:
Gastric band , Sleeve gastrectomy, The operations that employment by a mixture of restriction and absorption square measure:
Gastric Bypass, Mini gastric bypass, Gastric banding (LAGB).
What is laparoscopic gastric banding?
An expansive polymer band that's placed round the prime a part of the abdomen to make a pouch. Inserted victimization hole (laparoscopic) surgery, this only leaves a few small scars.
Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (LRYGB)
Here Surgeon creates a small gastric pouch of approximately 30-60ml. The small bowel is then divided and the end brought up and attached to the gastric pouch. In this approach, food passes into the pouch and straight down into the lower a part of the tiny viscus. The rest of the stomach and the bypassed part of the small bowel are then re-attached further down. This ensures that the stomachal and exocrine gland juices enter the tiny viscus and digest the food.You will need to take tablets daily including a multivitamin and mineral, calcium and vitamin D, Iron, as well as have three monthly vitamin B12 injections.
Sleeve gastrectomy (LSG)
Here surgeon creates a narrow tube-like stomach and removes the remainder. Hence, the capability of the new abdomen is far smaller than the first. It is usual to supply this operation as a primary stage procedure to super corpulent patients
A second stage procedure is then offered once the patient has lost a number of the surplus weight to create this sort of surgery safer.
In a little variety of patients, a sleeve gastrectomy may be the only operation that is required. It should be noted however, that long-term data of weight loss following sleeve gastrectomy is not yet available.
BMI > thirty eight.5 (Asians) by itself or > 33.5 if there is associated illness such as diabetes, high BP or sleep apnea.
Obesity related health problems.
No psychiatric or drug dependency problems.
Capacity to understand the risks associated with surgery.
