Overview

Many people with excessive weight problems are turning to weight loss surgery or obesity surgery. It is fast becoming a popular option when other weight loss methods, such as diet, exercise and supplementation have failed. Failure of these methods means that a person is unable to maintain a healthy weight and in many cases, the weight is regained. And, excessive weight, if not dealt with can lead to long term health problems such as cancer, heart disease or coronary strokes. Obesity is 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 Weight Loss Surgery?

Weight Loss Surgery includes a variety of procedures performed on people who are obese. Weight loss includes a variety of procedures performed on people who are obese. It 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%.

Is Weight Loss Surgery Right for you?

A Weight Loss Surgery is good for individuals who are obese or morbidly obese. Most have tried to slim down with diets and/or exercise, but have failed. Doctors take a close look at the whole person when determining if the person is a good candidate for weight loss surgery. If the patient is not willing to do the pre-surgery diet and work, the doctor may not elect to go ahead with the procedure. Typically, to qualify for bariatric surgery you must be 'morbidly obese', which usually means being overweight by 100 pounds (man) or 80 pounds (woman) with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 40+. There are other factors the surgeon will consider in determining if the procedure is right for you, such as:

If you meet all of the above requirements, you're probably a good candidate for weight loss surgery.

How Does Weight Loss Surgery Work?

The concept of gastric surgery to control obesity grew out of results of operations for cancer or severe ulcers that removed large portions of the stomach or small intestine. Because patients undergoing these procedures tend to lose weight after surgery, some doctors began to use such operations to treat severe obesity. The first operation that was widely used for severe obesity was a type of intestinal bypass. This operation, first used 40 years ago, caused weight loss through malabsorption. The idea was that patients could eat large amounts of food, which would be poorly digested or passed along too fast for the body to absorb many calories. The problem with this surgery was that it caused a loss of essential nutrients (malnutrition) and its side effects were unpredictable and sometimes fatal. The original form of the intestinal bypass operation is no longer used. Surgeons now use other techniques that produce weight loss primarily by limiting how much the stomach can hold. Two types of surgical procedures used to promote weight loss are:

Through food intake restriction, malabsorption, or a combination of both, you can lose weight since less food either goes into your stomach or stays in your small intestine long enough to be digested and absorbed.

Start exercising as soon as possible when you heal; most weight loss centers will design an exercise program for you. Once you are home, it is important to eat and drink exactly what your doctor and dietitian recommend. You will see your doctor, nurse, and dietitian on a regular basis after surgery to monitor your health, diet, and weight loss.

What is the Recovery after the Weight Loss Surgery?

Recovering from surgery and losing weight can be stressful and emotional, and it is important to have the support of family and friends. Working with a social worker, therapist, or support group can help you through the ups and downs. Recovery from weight loss surgery requires both a short-term plan and a long-term plan. To manage the effects of morbid obesity and bariatric surgery, your post-weight loss surgery care plan may involve several different types of health care professionals, who will work together to help ensure your overall health, manage your food addiction and provide a smooth transition to new day-to-day activities.

Weight loss surgery is a genuine life-changing experience. Changes in your life may include the ability to fully perform day-to-day activities, the reduction of your risk of disease, the possible resolution of some medical conditions and new opportunities for jobs or relationships. The benefits from weight loss surgery should outweigh the personal commitment and financial investment associated with the surgery and its aftercare. It is important to follow your surgeon's instructions for a safe recovery and a long-term plan that will help you maintain the benefits of massive weight loss for the rest of your life.

What are the Benefits of Weight Loss Surgery

The most obvious benefit is weight loss: it does depend on the type of procedure but generally, you could be looking at up to 80% weight loss. This varies from one person to another but is an average figure. Weight loss means reduced body fat levels which equates to a slimmer, more natural looking you.

You will find that the greatest amount of weight loss will be in the first twelve months following surgery. After that it will tend to slow down and eventually reach a stable level. This is because your body has adjusted to the reduced calorie intake and has reached what we call a 'plateau'. If that's a sensible, healthy weight then that is fine. What you need to do then is to maintain that weight level. If you feel you need to lose a little more then you can adjust your diet and activity levels accordingly.

Apart from weight loss, another benefit is a reduced risk of developing an obesity-related disease such as Type II diabetes. These conditions or 'co-morbidities' are extremely serious and very often are NOT reversible. If you already suffer from one of these conditions then as a result of surgery you will find that it greatly improves or in some cases disappears altogether.

Another factor linked to this is that these co-morbidities are life-threatening. In some cases you could be looking at losing seven years off your life. By undergoing this type of surgery you will reduce any long term health risks and ensure that you have a normal life expectancy.

Other physical benefits include increased energy, better mobility and overall, your general health will have improved. Psychologically, your new found weight loss and improved appearance will mean an altogether better quality of life. Your confidence will start to increase and you will feel better about yourself. Whereas you might have previously shied away from social situations you will find that the opposite is the case. And, you will be able to enjoy the normal, everyday activities that we all take for granted.

What are the Risks of Weight Loss Surgery?

All surgeries come with the possibility of risks, 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. In some cases can cause vomiting or straining after surgery before the incision heals.
