Bariatric surgery is a type of operation that helps people with obesity lose weight by making changes to their digestive system. There are different types such as gastric bypass, gastric sleeve, gastric band, and gastric balloon. The weight loss industry is booming, especially in areas like Hollywood where appearance is everything, so this procedure has become a hot topic.
Bariatric surgery aims to reduce the amount of food that a person can eat or absorb by altering the anatomy of the stomach and/or the small intestine. It can help people with obesity lose weight and improve their health conditions, such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, sleep apnea, and heart disease.
However, it also has some risks and complications, such as infection, bleeding, leakage, malnutrition, ulcers, gallstones, and bowel obstruction. It’s not a quick fix or a cosmetic procedure. It requires lifelong changes in diet and lifestyle to maintain the weight loss and prevent complications.
