What is Bariatric Surgery?
Bariatric surgery, which includes Gastric bypass and other weight-loss surgeries, works by permanently re-setting the appetite and satiety signals that you receive throughout the day (feeling fuller on smaller meals). This is carried out through making permanent or temporary changes to your digestive system to help you lose weight. Bariatric surgery is used as an alternative method to losing weight when the primary treatments like diet and exercise have not worked.
Because of the change in appetite it becomes very easy to lose a considerable amount of weight. Bariatric Surgery has gained popularity over the years as Obesity rates have hiked. The group of surgical procedures are extremely helpful for people who’s weight is starting to affect their overall health and quality of life.
