What is weight loss surgery?

Weight loss surgery (also known as bariatric surgery or metabolic surgery) is a surgical treatment for people suffering from morbid obesity.

While bariatric surgery helps to lose a large amount in a short time, it also provides the treatment of obesity-related type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure.

Although weight loss surgery is the best solution to obesity, patients should include diet and sports in their lives after surgery.

Types of weight loss surgery and their differences

There are various methods for weight loss surgery available, which depend on the specific purpose or situation.

  • gastric band -  with the band placed around your stomach, you will feel full for a long time and your high food consumption will be prevented.

  • gastric balloon -gastric balloon is a weight loss procedure where a deflated balloon is placed in the stomach through a tube. It's then filled with saline solution, making you feel full and eat less. 

  • gastric bypass - gastric bypass is a surgical procedure for severe obesity that involves dividing the stomach and rerouting the small intestine to create a smaller stomach pouch, restricting food intake and calorie absorption to promote weight loss.

  • sleeve gastrectomy - sleeve gastrectomy is a surgical procedure where a large portion of the stomach is removed, leaving behind a smaller tube-shaped stomach.

All these procedures can be preferred for different situations and each procedure has its own risks and advantages. After weight loss surgery, sports, diet and some lifestyle changes increase the success rate of weight loss surgery.

Who is the best candidate for weight loss surgery?

Eligible candidates for weight loss surgery must meet the following criteria:

  • BMI 40+ or BMI 35-40 with obesity-related conditions like type 2 diabetes or high blood pressure

  • Previous unsuccessful weight loss attempts

  • Commitment to long-term follow-up care after surgery

If you're thinking about undergoing weight loss surgery, it's important to begin by consulting with your doctor and undergoing the required physical examinations. Once your doctor determines that weight loss surgery is a suitable option for you, they will provide guidance on the lifestyle adjustments you need to make prior to the procedure, any medications you should discontinue, and any other important instructions to follow.
