This is considered a drastic form of treatment for obesity. Many of the methods are recognized by insurance companies and such treatment costs are covered. Known to be extreme forms of surgery at one time, most Bariatric surgical methods have become established procedures that have a low rate of risks or health complications. While the initial methods were more towards the manipulation of the stomach pouch or intestine, today easier and reversible solutions are also provided that are less invasive, require minimal hospitalization and people can get back to normal life as soon as possible.
Bariatric surgeries are of the following kinds
In this procedure part of the stomach is divided and so is the small intestine. By bypassing a part of the stomach and linking it directly to the intestine the stomach is made smaller, which reduces the ability to consume large amount of food at a time.
Gastric lap band
This is a process whereby a silicone band is used to restrict a part of the stomach. This helps to lessen the volume of the stomach pouch which in turn reduces intake capacity for food.
In such a Bariatric surgery the stomach is reduced to a narrow sleeve thereby reducing the volume of the stomach pouch and the ability to hold food beyond a certain volume at a time.
This Bariatric procedure comprises of folding part of the stomach lining internally. This in turn helps to reduce the stomach volume and the amount of food it can hold.
This is a temporary procedure that is reversed in a period of six months. Here silicone balloons are placed inside the stomach and filled with saline and colored dye to reduce the stomach cavity that can hold food. The above procedures are the former and the latest methods that have been designed to help obese patients reduce their stomach space so that they can consume small amounts of food at a time.
Some procedures are reversible while others are irreversible where permanent changes are made in the digestive system. Adverse side effects are low for these procedures, though discomfort and changes in diet need to be made in drastic ways for the first few weeks and months after any such procedure.
As a result of any Bariatric surgery obese patients are forced to be on a liquid diet or on pureed food for the initial weeks or a month. For such reasons, most Bariatric surgeries are successful in helping to bring down the excess body weight in such patients. 30% to 40% percent body weight loss can be achieved in a time span of six months to a year and more.
These are key factors that have helped any former obese patient to have gained significant weight loss and hold onto it. No matter how drastic a procedure one has opted for, no surgical intervention can offer everlasting effects. Hence the key is to stick to the changes to the diet that is prescribed.
It is made easy by procedures by sleeve gastrectomy or gastric bypass where one is unable to consume food beyond a certain amount at a time. Indeed, the side effects of consuming food beyond a certain amount can lead to several discomforts like indigestion, vomiting or nausea, acid reflux and other side effects.
For such reasons those who undergo irreversible Bariatric surgery need to be careful about their diet and what they consume. Hence, it works as a controlling factor in their lives. In other cases where the diet restrictions are less stringent, it is necessary for obese people to maintain self discipline or have ongoing support and counseling to stick to the right diet and lifestyle changes.
Exercise plays an important role in helping to keep off the excess weight. Usually obese people find it hard to exercise and often face damages to joints and bones if they stress and strain too much. For that reason it is necessary to undergo a weight loss regime and reduce a certain amount of body weight which helps to make movements easier.
Many who have undergone Bariatric surgery have found themselves being able to adapt to a more active lifestyle with greater success. With a light diet, it is easier to shed weight and combining it with exercises leads to faster results.
