Bariatric surgery or more commonly known as the weight-loss surgery is evolving as a lifesaving and life-changing treatment especially for severely obese people. The bariatric surgery is recommended for those who have not succeeded with traditional or medically supervised weight-loss strategies like exercise, medication or diet modification.
What is Bariatric Surgery?
The bariatric surgery works by restricting the amount of food you can eat and/or by interrupting the digestive process. Please note that this type of surgery does not remove the fatty tissue from your body.
Earlier, bariatric surgery was always considered as an open surgery. However, with advancements in medical field, we can now conduct laparoscopic bariatric surgery which means minimal risks and speedy recovery.
