Bariatric Surgery: It’s Time to Get Back in Shape, and Lead a Healthy, Happy Life (Max Healthcare)

You shouldn’t consider surgery unless you’ve tried the conservative treatments for obesity. Only when everything else fails, you should talk to your doctor for the surgical treatment so you can get back in shape, and avoid getting hit by diseases, like Diabetes and Heart Attacks.  Obesity can make you target of numerous diseases, so you better commit yourself for a healthy lifestyle, and the best treatment.

Who’s an ideal candidate for Weight Loss or Bariatric Surgery?

A person is an ideal candidate for the surgery:

  • Who’s obese
  • Who’s tried everything else but surgery to get rid of the fat of his/her body
  • Who’s healthy enough to undergo the surgery

Gastric Band, Gastric Bypass, and Gastric Sleeve are the popular weight loss surgeries, which are done with minimally invasive technology. With minimally invasive or laparoscopic procedure, surgeons don’t have to resort to large cuts on the body to access the stomach; in fact, 3 or 4 small incisions are made on the abdomen area so as to operate on the stomach. Once the surgery is completed, instruments are safely taken out of the body. Patients usually experience faster recover and lesser pain when they get operated laparoscopically. Kudos to medical science, and advancements in healthcare technology!

After Surgery:

Life changes a lot after surgery. Over time, you notice a great change in your body; this increases your confidence in yourself. You feel healthier and happier than ever before. To put it simply, life gets better!

Changes take place in your eating habits as well. For example, you don’t eat as much as you used to eat before surgery; this is because of the change that’s been made to your stomach. In Gastric Band, surgeons place a band around the stomach so as to divide the stomach into two portions, with a little space between the two. In Gastric Sleeve, stomach is reduced to a sleeve like shape so that the patient consumes less. Gastric Bypass is more effective, as surgeons also operate on the small intestine to allow less absorption of nutrients in the body. It’s the surgeon who decided which surgery is the best for the patient in question.
