Bariatric surgery enhances weight loss in obese people who have not achieved long-term success with other weight loss attempts. Bariatric surgery reduces the stomach’s capacity, which limits food intake and helps you feel full much sooner than normal.
But there’s more than one type of bariatric surgery. Options include gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, gastric banding and gastric plication. Your physician can help determine if you’re a candidate and, if so, which option will work best for you.
Bariatric surgery offers people significant and sustained weight loss.
Losing the weight and gaining it back does nothing to mitigate the potential health problems associated with obesity. You must keep the weight off for a minimum of five years to consider the weight loss a success and one that can result in a happier, healthier you.
Benefits of sustained weight loss through bariatric surgery include:
Improved cardiovascular health.
Weight loss surgery decreases a person’s risk of coronary heart disease, stroke and peripheral heart disease.
Relief of depression.
Many obese people feel depressed because of poor body image and social stigma. Even younger people who carry significant excess weight find it difficult to participate in activities they might otherwise enjoy, leading to social isolation and depression. Losing this excess weight can improve emotional health in these patients.
Eliminate obstructive sleep apnea.
Achieving and sustaining a normal weight range often allows people with sleep apnea to stop using a CPAP machine at bedtime.
Joint pain relief.
Carrying around excessive weight puts a lot of stress on your weight-bearing joints, often causing chronic pain and joint damage. The significant and sustained weight loss that occurs after bariatric surgery relieves the stress on joints and often allows people to stop using pain medications and enjoy much more mobility.
Weight loss surgery can also improve fertility during childbearing years.
Alleviate other medical conditions.
Weight loss surgery can alleviate metabolic syndrome, pregnancy complications, gallbladder disease and more.
With obesity and its associated health complications rising at an alarming rate, bariatric surgery certainly represents a powerful tool for providing sustained relief for overweight people.
Patients have the best chance of success when supported by an experienced medical team that includes surgeons, bariatric medical physicians, nurses, psychologists, endocrinologists, and nutritionists.
