Bariatric Surgery


When non-surgical approaches such as diet, exercise, and medication fail to help obese people lose weight, bariatric surgery may be recommended. Bariatric surgery can limit the amount of food a stomach can keep, reduce the body’s ability to absorb nutrients, or a combination of the two. The most common types of bariatric surgery include gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, adjustable gastric band, and duodenal switch. If your BMI is greater than 50 or greater than 40 and you have major health concerns, you may be a candidate for biliary pancreatic diversion with a duodenal switch operation.

It will limit or lessen the quantity of food you can eat or stop you from digesting all of the food you have eaten. Also, there can be a combination of both.

While any surgical procedure has risks and complications, bariatric surgery has been found to be one of the safest surgeries to undergo. It is considered as safe or more safe when compared to other elective surgeries.

A gastric sleeve is the excision of a section of the stomach. Mass loss may take longer than with gastric bypass. A tiny gastric pouch is formed and the small bowel is rerouted during a gastric bypass. Because the small bowel is rerouted, it is more intrusive than the sleeve.

Gastric bypass surgery was discovered to be the most successful for weight loss, with an average 31% loss of total body weight in the first year and a 25% loss of total body weight after five years.

Depending on the kind of surgery, you might lose somewhere between 36% to 90% of your excess body weight (EBW) from 6 months to two years. Clinical studies have indicated that most individuals lose weight quickly after surgery and continue to do so for 18 to 24 months. However, you will not lose weight after the procedure. Patients, on the other hand, may lose 30 to 50% of their extra weight in the first 6 months and 77% as early as 12 months following surgery. Another study found that individuals might keep their extra weight loss of 50–60% for 10–14 years following surgery.

Weight-loss surgery, often known as bariatric surgery, can be performed in a minimally invasive manner and used to manage Type 2 diabetes. Diabetes is treated with surgery that regulates the amount of sugar in the blood. The duodenal switch is one sort of surgery.

If you’ve undergone gastric bypass surgery, you’ll have dropped between 30 and 40% of your extra body weight. With gastric banding surgery, you lose 1 to 2 pounds each week, for a total weight loss of 25 to 50 pounds in six months.
