Bariatric or weight loss surgery is a laparoscopic surgery done on the stomach and small intestines that helps reduce the hormones responsible for gaining excess weight. Having excessive weight is called obesity. This is a disease where the excess weight causes other health problems like diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, knee and back pains, sleeping difficulty, shortness of breath on walking, heart problems, and even infertility. Bariatric surgery is a very safe and effective treatment of obesity. It has been proven to:
- Effectively reduce excess weight
- Improve health and quality of life
- Reduce the risk of heart disease and cancers
- Boost your self-esteem and confidence
The procedure decreases the size of the stomach leading to a reduced appetite, which results in weight loss.
This surgery reduces the upper stomach to a small pouch, which reduces the amount of food one eats. The food one eats then bypasses the rest of the stomach to the upper part of the small intestine
