Obesity has been a major health issue all across the globe for a while. However, it has now become a growing cause of concern in India too in the recent years as more and more health problems like diabetes, joint pains etc are all being traced to patients being overweight. Being overweight or obese is a lifestyle issue and that is why surgical fat removal for cosmetic or health purposes can only be a temporary solution. If the patient's eating habits and lifestyle remain the same, the surgery will have no effect in the long term. Instead it is important to go for organic solutions for obesity to avoid further complications caused by obesity. This is the reason for an increased need for awareness about Bariatric surgery. Bariatric surgery can help avoid hypertension, diabetes, Kidney Disorders/Failure, Joint Pains, Infertility, Sleep Apnea, Depression and Anxiety Disorders, and even certain varieties of Cancer. The biggest advantage of Bariatric surgery is that it is a minimally invasive procedure done with laparoscopic techniques. This means that not only is the interference with the body minimal, the recovery is much faster than an open surgery. Bariatric surgery essentially involves two approaches, either reducing the intake of food by decreasing the size of the stomach (thereby reducing its capacity for food) or by reducing the absorption of the food nutrients by rearranging the intestines. In some cases, it can also require both procedures to be done. These include:

  • Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Band

  • Sleeve Gastrectomy

  • Roux-En-Y or Gastric Bypass Mini Gastric Bypass

  • Duodenal Switch

  • Revision Surgery

  • Post-Surgery Body Contouring

As Bariatric surgery works from within by reducing the appetite and the desire for more food, it is a far healthier approach than other surgical procedures. The surgery followed with a stable diet and a more active lifestyle can go a long way for an obese patient to go back to a healthy and normal life.
