What Is Bariatric Surgery?

There are many forms of bariatric surgery, but they all aim to shrink the stomach to help the patient lose dramatic amounts of weight.

Bariatric surgery is an operation on the digestive system to help an obese person lose weight. The surgery restricts calorie intake by reducing the size of the stomach. Some types of bariatric surgery restrict the size as well as absorption of nutrients. Regardless of the approach, a successful bariatric surgery results in significant weight loss. 

Why is a bariatric surgery done?

Bariatric surgery helps obese people lose weight by reducing the capacity of their digestion and appetite. A person with a body mass index of 30 or more is considered obese. Other factors like muscle mass and waist circumference also factor into a diagnosis of obesity. 

People consider bariatric surgery when the BMI is 40 or above. It might also be recommended for people with a BMI between 30 and 40 if they also have diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, fatty liver, or sleep apnea.

Obesity can cause a variety of long-term health issues including:

  • diabetes
  • heart disease
  • high blood pressure
  • liver disease
  • digestive issues
  • incontinence
  • sleep apnea
  • back pain
  • osteoarthritis
  • physhological issues

Obesity is a major health problem worldwide, and bariatric surgery provides the most significant and sustained weight loss solution for obese patients. Nevertheless, patients should consider bariatric surgery only after exhausting other options for weight loss like dieting, exercise, and drug treatments.
