What is Weight Loss Surgery?


Weight loss surgery is a surgical procedure to correct obesity or being overweight. This surgery may be considered for people who experience unsuccessful attempts to lose weight or for people who have serious health problems. For example, people with health conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, or apnea may experience failure when they try to lose weight despite trying to lose it. In this case, weight loss surgery can help treat these health problems.


Weight-loss surgery is usually considered for people who are overweight or obese. However, it can be considered in cases where weight loss cannot be achieved in a healthy way. For example, weight-loss surgery may be considered if a person has a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or higher, or if they have a BMI of 35 or higher and also have serious health problems.


Weight loss surgery can consist of a variety of surgical procedures. These include operations such as gastric reduction surgery (gastric bypass), gastric closure surgery (sleeve gastrectomy), and duodenal switch. These surgeries can help people lose weight by reducing stomach volume or altering how the stomach and small intestine work.


What is Bariatric Surgery?


Bariatric surgery is the general name given to all weight loss surgery methods, where various surgical operations are performed to help individuals with overweight or obesity problems lose weight. A specialist doctor who performs bariatric surgery is called a bariatric surgeon.


Types of weight loss surgery

There are several different types of weight loss surgery, including:


  1. Gastric bypass surgery: This procedure involves creating a small pouch at the top of the stomach, which is then connected directly to the small intestine. This significantly reduces the amount of food that the stomach can hold, which helps to decrease the number of calories that are consumed and absorbed by the body. Gastric bypass surgery can be performed using either an open or laparoscopic (minimally invasive) approach.

  2. Sleeve gastrectomy surgery: This procedure involves removing a portion of the stomach, creating a smaller, tube-like stomach that is about the size of a banana. This procedure helps to decrease the amount of food that can be eaten at one time, which can lead to weight loss. Sleeve gastrectomy surgery is typically performed using a laparoscopic approach.

  3. Adjustable gastric banding surgery: This procedure involves placing an inflatable band around the top portion of the stomach, which helps to create a small pouch at the top of the stomach that can hold only a small amount of food. The size of the pouch can be adjusted by adding or removing saline solution from the band through a small port placed under the skin. Adjustable gastric banding surgery is typically performed using a laparoscopic approach.

  4. Biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch (BPD/DS): This procedure involves removing a large portion of the stomach, leaving a small, banana-shaped stomach in place. The small intestine is then divided into two sections, and the lower section is connected to the small stomach pouch. The upper section of the small intestine is connected to the small intestine further down the line. This procedure helps to decrease the amount of food that can be eaten at one time, and it also reduces the absorption of nutrients from the food that is consumed. BPD/DS surgery is a more complex procedure and is typically reserved for individuals who have a BMI of 50 or higher.

  5. Gastric balloon: This procedure involves placing a silicone balloon inside the stomach, which helps to create a feeling of fullness and reduces the amount of food that can be eaten at one time. The balloon is placed through the mouth and into the stomach using an endoscope, and it is typically left in place for a period of six months. Gastric balloon surgery is a less invasive option, and it is typically recommended for individuals who have a BMI of 30 to 40.

  6. Single Anastomosis Sleeve Ileal Bypass (SASI): Single Anastomosis Sleeve Ileal Bypass (SASI) is a surgical procedure that is used to treat morbid obesity. It is a variation of the more commonly known sleeve gastrectomy, which is a weight loss surgery that involves removing a large portion of the stomach and creating a narrow, sleeve-like structure. SASI is considered a less invasive alternative to traditional bypass surgery, which involves creating multiple connections between the stomach and small intestine. It is typically performed laparoscopically, which means that it is done through small incisions using specialized instruments.


All weight loss surgery procedures involve making changes to the digestive system in order to help individuals lose weight. These procedures are generally considered safe and effective, and they can help individuals to achieve significant weight loss. However, it is important to understand that weight loss surgery is not a "quick fix" for obesity, and it does require a lifelong commitment to making healthy lifestyle changes, including following a balanced diet and exercising regularly.


Candidacy for weight loss surgery


Bariatric surgery, or weight loss surgery, is not recommended for everyone who is overweight. It is typically only recommended for:


  1. People who are extremely obese, with a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or higher

  2. Those who have a BMI between 35 and 39.9 and also have a weight-related health condition, such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, or sleep apnea

  3. In rare cases, people with a BMI between 30 and 34 who have multiple health problems


If you do not meet these criteria, surgeons may not recommend this surgery for you. Even if you do meet the criteria, you may need to undergo further evaluation and agree to make certain lifestyle changes in order to qualify for the surgery. After the surgery, it is important to continue following up with your doctor, participating in follow-up studies, and following certain dietary guidelines.


What Should I Expect After Weight Loss Surgery?


After bariatric surgery, you can expect weight loss. This weight loss begins soon after surgery and is usually greatest within the first 6 months. However, your weight loss may not be continuous and sometimes there may be slowdowns or irregularities. The continuity of your weight loss depends on changing your lifestyle and getting regular exercise.


In addition, you may need to take care to follow regular follow-up and nutrition recommendations after bariatric surgery. This will help you maintain your weight loss and help you live a healthy life.


After bariatric surgery, you may also experience some side effects. These may include symptoms such as stomach pain, vomiting, constipation from diarrhea. These side effects are usually temporary and decrease over time.


After bariatric surgery, it is important that you develop a perspective that aims to lead a healthy life. This includes exercising regularly, following a healthy diet, and getting regular medical follow-ups.


Diet and Exercise After Weight Loss Surgery


After weight loss surgery, your healthcare team will likely recommend that you follow a specific diet to help you adjust to your new digestive system and support your weight loss goals. This may involve gradually increasing the amount of food you eat, adding new foods to your diet, and limiting certain types of food and beverages. It is important to follow your healthcare team's recommendations and to eat slowly, chew your food well, and stop eating when you feel full.


Exercise is an important part of maintaining weight loss after weight loss surgery. Your healthcare team will likely recommend that you start with low-intensity activities, such as walking or swimming, and gradually increase the intensity and duration of your workouts as you become stronger. It is important to find physical activities that you enjoy and that are realistic for your lifestyle.


Should I Use Vitamins After Bariatric Surgery?


After bariatric surgery (obesity surgery), the body may not get enough of some micronutrients (especially iron, vitamin D and vitamin B12) it needs. Therefore, it may be recommended to take vitamin and mineral supplements after bariatric surgery. In particular, iron supplementation and vitamin D supplementation may be recommended. Vitamin B12 supplementation is also a frequently recommended supplement after bariatric surgery.


However, there is no definite prescription about which vitamin and mineral supplements should be taken after bariatric surgery. Therefore, it is important to have regular medical follow-ups after bariatric surgery to determine the micronutrients the body needs. During these follow-ups, your doctor may advise you on which vitamin and mineral supplements should be taken.


Outcomes and Success Rates


Studies conducted every year reveal that bariatric surgery is the most definitive solution for individuals with obesity problems. Although bariatric surgery is a sure solution for weight loss, this surgery may not give the expected result for people who do not follow the doctor's instructions after the surgery and lead their lifestyle with unhealthy habits.


Therefore, the most important detail for individuals who want to have weight loss surgery is the part after the surgery. If the process after the weight loss surgery is managed correctly and all the instructions of the doctor are followed, it is possible to get rid of 70-80% of the excess weight in the first 2 years.
