What are the benefits of bariatric surgery?

Why Choose Bariatric Surgery?

 

The first step in trying to cure obesity is to adhere to a sound diet and exercise program. If these don’t work, another non-surgical procedure to consider is Elipse gastric balloon or an intragastric balloon to reduce your appetite; we offer the Orbera intragastric balloon (an endoscopic six-month balloon). However, if all else fails to provide a satisfactory outcome in moderately and severely obese people, then bariatric surgery could be the most appropriate next step towards weight loss and improved health. Among the risks associated with obesity are certain cancers, heart disease and strokes, diabetes, high blood pressure, gallbladder disease and gallstones, osteoarthritis, gout, and breathing problems such as sleep apnea.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, weight loss surgery is safe. It has almost a 100% survival rate, and the most reputable health and governmental organizations in the country endorse it for those who qualify. Further, the long-term risks of remaining morbidly obese is much greater than the risk of weight loss surgery. For example, people suffering from morbid obesity are 85% more likely to die over any 5 year period than weight loss surgery patients. However, as many as 1 in 10 patients does experience non-life-threatening complications.
In order to get the best results from your bariatric surgery and to increase the likelihood of a safe operation you will need to go on a 1-2 week liquid diet. The purpose of this is to reduce the amount of fat stored in your liver and allows the surgeon to operate in a clear, safe area with reduced risk. This will also enhance post-operative healing.
Right away! You will take gentle, short walks even while you are in the hospital. The key is to start slow. Listen to your body and your surgeon. If you lift weights or do sports, stay “low impact” until you are given the all-clear (avoid competition, think participation). Build slowly over several weeks. If you swim, your wounds need to be healed over before you get back in the water.
