Bariatric Surgery Procedures

Weight loss surgery is the only long-term effective weight loss option for those suffering from obesity and morbid obesity. As such, the goal of weight loss surgery is to live a better, healthier and longer life.

There are two basic ways that bariatric surgery works to help patients lose weight and improve or resolve obesity-related health conditions. Malabsorptive procedures that alter digestion, causing the food to be incompletely digested and absorbed so that it is eliminated in the stool. Restrictive procedures that limit food intake.

Most patients enjoy an improvement in health and obesity-related conditions (such as mobility, self-image and self-esteem).

You should make the decision to have weight loss surgery only after careful consideration and consultation with an experienced bariatric surgeon or a knowledgeable family physician. However, the decision to have a surgical weight loss procedure is entirely up to you. After having heard all the information, you must decide if the benefits outweigh the side effects and potential physical and emotional complications. This surgery is only a tool. Your ultimate success depends on your adherence to the recommended dietary, exercise and lifestyle changes.
