Weight Loss Surgery
Obesity is not just a cosmetic problem. It is a medical condition that causes many serious diseases, such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. If you’re obese or overweight, losing weight can improve your health problems. However, weight loss surgery, also named bariatric surgery, can be beneficial if you cannot lose weight with diet and exercise.
This surgical procedure can eliminate weight that threatens your health and psyche. Also, losing weight with surgery is the starting point to regain your health.
You will also make some crucial changes in your diet and exercise habits. So, you will not regain the weight and return to square one. To that end, you can get counseling to deal with overeating habits that can cause you to be obese again.

Weight Loss Surgery Types
There are several weight loss surgery types that you can choose depending on your body mass index (BMI) and general health.
You can lose 40-100 kilos (88-220 pounds) by having a sleeve gastrectomy. Your general health and conditions, such as joint pain, will improve. Certain health conditions may permanently disappear, while others, like high blood pressure, sleep apnea, or type 2 diabetes, can significantly improve over time.
This bariatric surgery has a success rate of 75-80%, and it is very safe.
If you are overweight, there are less invasive and suitable obesity surgery types to choose from. A gastric injection or gastric balloon can also improve your health and confidence.
The main reason for this kind of bariatric surgery is the lack of balance between the calories you take and burn. Regular exercise and a healthy diet are usually helpful to keep this balance in check. However, for people who are prone to weight gain and have poor eating habits, obesity surgery might be the only way to have a healthy life.
