What is Bariatric surgery?

Bariatric surgery is a weight loss tool that influences the anatomy and hormones of the stomach and digestive system. These changes reduce hunger, emotional eating, and increase satiety, thus regularize food intake and promote fat burning. Over a period of time, the physiological changes related to energy balance and fat metabolism occur, which in turn helps to achieve a steady, desired body weight. Thus, contrary to dietary weight loss which is usually short living and reversible, surgical weight loss offers long-lasting weight loss, improved coexisting diseases, better quality of life, improved self-esteem and psychosocial status. Most of the bariatric surgeries are done using minimal invasive techniques such as laparoscopy.

By changing your gastrointestinal anatomy, certain bariatric procedures affect the production of intestinal hormones in a way that reduces hunger and appetite and increases feelings of fullness (satiety). The end result is reduction in the desire to eat and in the frequency of eating. Interestingly, these surgically-induced changes in hormones are opposite to those produced by dietary weight loss. Our surgeon perform most of these procedures in the hospital, using general anesthesia.

Surgery is the best procedure for quick remedy when you are suffering from obesity that has not been managed by lifestyle and diet modifications.

Include physical activities such as going running, regular walking and taking medications.
