All of the different types of bariatric surgery reduce the amount of calories the body can use. This means the body uses stores of fat to get the energy it needs and as these stores are used up, you lose weight.
Restrictive surgeries, like the adjustable gastric lap band, reduce stomach capacity and make you feel fuller faster.
Other procedures are called malabsorptive as they limit the calories absorbed by the intestines. A gastric bypass limits both stomach capacity and calorie uptake.
Your doctor will work with you to assess your individual situation and decide which type of bariatric surgery is right for you. An indication that someone is suitable for weight loss surgery is the amount of excess weight they are carrying - 100 lbs (45 kgs) for men and 80 lbs (36kgs) for women.
Only people who are seriously overweight will be considered suitable for bariatric surgery. This means a Body Mass Index or BMI of more than 40. People with a BMI of 35 will also be considered for bariatric surgery if they have serious health conditions as a result of being overweight, such as type 2 diabetes, hypertension or heart disease.
It is vital that anyone considering weight loss surgery understands the long term implications and is really committed to losing weight. Bariatric surgery is not cosmetic surgery and will not remove excess fat from the body. Bariatric surgery is not a quick-fix way to lose weight or to get a better body shape.
Weight loss surgery has all the potential risks and complications of any major surgery. After most bariatric procedures the food you can eat and your relationship to food will be changed forever. Weight loss surgery may seem a drastic option but for people who are clinically obese and experiencing the associated health problems, bariatric surgery may be the right choice.
Losing weight and keeping it off after bariatric surgery relies on motivation, a healthy diet and regular exercise.
Faced with expensive private care, strict eligibility criteria and long waiting lists, increasing numbers of people from Europe and North America are choosing to have their weight loss surgery abroad. With the same high standard of care you would expect at home, bariatric surgery abroad is both quick and affordable.
