Severe obesity is a chronic condition that is hard to treat with diet and exercise alone. Bariatric surgery is an operation on the stomach that helps patients with extreme obesity to lose weight. This surgery is an option for people who can not lose weight by other means or who suffer from serious health problems related to obesity.
Restrictive surgeries shrink the size of the stomach which reduces the amount of food it can hold. This makes you feel full when eating much sooner than you did before surgery.
The surgery restricts food intake, which helps weight loss. Some surgeries also interrupt how food is digested, preventing some calories and nutrients, such as vitamins, from being absorbed. Recent studies suggest that bariatric surgery may even lower death rates for patients with severe obesity. The best results occur when patients follow surgery with healthy eating patterns and regular exercise.
