Weight Loss Surgery

For many people, losing weight can be achieved by eating healthily and taking regular exercise. However, sometimes weight loss surgery, also known as bariatric surgery, may be necessary.

Weight Loss Surgery Specialists

Weight loss surgery is best suited for a person who is obese, where timely intervention is needed in order to prevent or manage other weight-related conditions such as high blood pressure or Type 2 diabetes. Weight loss surgery should only be considered if dieting and exercise have not worked. To undergo weight loss surgery, you should have a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or more, or a BMI between 35 and 40, and be prepared to commit to making healthy lifestyle changes after surgery in order to prevent putting the weight back on.

Surgery for weight loss can help improve cardiovascular health, cutting the risk of coronary heart disease and stroke. By losing weight you are also putting less pressure on your joints, lessening the likelihood of joint damage and joint pain. Women who undergo surgery for weight loss find that the procedure can regulate their menstrual cycles, improve their fertility and cuts the risk of miscarriage and pregnancy complications.

Of course being obese affects more than just physical health. People who carry an excessive amount of weight often have a poor body image, leading to anxiety and depression. This weight may also prevent them from doing activities they enjoy, such as running, which can cause further mental anguish. A person who is obese may avoid activities which involve exposing part of their body, for example, going swimming or sunbathing on the beach. This avoidance may interfere with their intimate relationships, causing further stress and depression.

Weight loss surgery can be life-changing and those who undergo this procedure can enjoy significant weight loss within a few years, as well as improved physical and mental health.
