Overview :

Obesity today ranks as a significant health challenge and studies show obesity to be a major cause of preventable mortality. Obesity, perhaps in the next 25 years will become the biggest financial drain on one's family and country along with other associated life style disorders like Diabetes and Hypertension to name a few. Obesity refers to a spectrum of problems of excess weight ranging from being mildly overweight to being morbidly obese. Patients with morbid obesity do not tend to respond to medical means of weight loss.

What is Obesity?

Obesity is a condition in which the natural energy reserve, stored in the fatty tissue of humans and other mammals, is increased to a point where it is associated with certain health conditions or increased mortality.

What causes Obesity?

What is Obesity Surgery?

Obesity surgery includes a variety of procedures performed on people who are obese. Weight loss is achieved by reducing the size of the stomach with an implanted medical device (gastric banding) or through removal of a portion of the stomach (sleeve gastrectomy or biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch) or by resecting and re-routing the small intestines to a small stomach pouch (gastric bypass surgery). Long-term studies show the procedures cause significant long-term loss of weight, recovery from diabetes, improvement in cardiovascular risk factors, and a reduction in mortality of 23% from 40%.

What are types of Obesity Surgery?

There are several types of obesity surgery which fall into one of the following three categories:

Restrictive: This is the term given to a set of procedures which cause a physical reduction of the stomach volume. At present there are three procedures although one of them - Vertical Banded Gastroplasty is no longer recommended due to a high rate of side effects. Food intake is reduced as result of smaller stomach capacity: and less food means a reduced calorie intake which will result in weight being lost.

These include the following procedures:

Malabsorptive: A malabsorptive procedure is one in which the absorption of food is greatly affected. When food is ingested it passes down the gullet (windpipe) into your stomach. It is then broken down by stomach acids. As it leaves the stomach and enters the top part of the small intestine or duodenum, it comes into contact with digestive juices from the pancreas and bile from the gall bladder. These two cause a further breakdown of the food which means that vital nutrients such as vitamins and minerals are absorbed. However, with a malabsorptive procedure this ability is vastly reduced. Food is not properly absorbed which means that important nutrients are lost. This can result in vitamin/mineral deficiencies. You will be given daily supplements to replace these. Malabsorptive procedures, such as the jejuno-ileal bypass are no longer performed.

Combination (restrictive/malabsorptive): These are 'double whammy' procedures: by this we mean that they are comprised of both a restrictive and malabsorptive element. The restrictive element is the physical reduction of the stomach: which means that smaller meals will have to be eaten (reduced food intake). Combination procedures or 'restrictive/malabsorptive' procedures are the preferred option. The malabsorptive element refers to the rerouting of the small intestine (see gastric bypass for a more detailed description) which affects food absorption.

There are four procedures which fall into this category:

These are all technically demanding procedures but when performed by an experienced surgeon can result in dramatic weight loss.

How to prepare for Obesity Surgery?

To mentally prepare yourself:

To physically prepare yourself, strictly follow your doctor's guidelines. These usually include, but are not limited to:

Restricting yourself to a clear liquid diet 12-24 hours before surgery.

What are popular Obesity Surgery procedures?

What is advance Obesity Surgery procedure?

ROSE Procedure: ROSE, stands for Restorative Obesity Surgery, Endolumenal, is a new, safer, incision less, gastric bypass revision. It is not a primary method of weight loss surgery, but a follow-up procedure that is specifically designed for gastric bypass patients with weight regain. The ROSE procedure is indicated for gastric bypass patients who were initially successful in losing the excess weight but are now regaining some of the lost weight because the stomach and stoma have stretched out and no longer effectively control hunger and food intake.

How life changes after Obesity Surgery?

Obesity surgery is not a quick fix. It's an ongoing journey toward weight loss through lifestyle changes. After surgery, the difference in your body makes it physically easier to adjust your eating and lifestyle habits. Fortunately, you will not have to go through the process alone. A team of professionals will be there to support your efforts. Positive changes in your body, your weight, and your health will occur, but you will need to be patient through the recovery process. The following are some of the generally accepted dietary guidelines for a healthy diet after bariatric surgery:

What are benefits of Obesity Surgery?

Obesity surgeries and procedures are designed to reduce illness and complications caused by obesity. For many, weight loss improves multiple conditions including high blood cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, and coronary artery disease. In addition, other body systems, including digestive, endocrine, and immune system benefit. However, such procedures require dedication and determination for those who undergo them to maintain permanent lifestyle changes. After surgery, patients who follow instructions may enjoy as much as a 60% weight loss, improving health problems as an added benefit.

What risks are involved in Obesity Surgery?

All surgeries come with the possibility of complications, but fortunately their incidence is quite small. These include, Slippage of the band due to food intolerances or even perforation of the stomach, vomiting after the surgery may develop which can lead to a small stomach pouch stretch. While in 10-20% of the cases, abdominal hernia may occur. It can be caused by vomiting or straining after surgery, usually before the incision heals.
