Bariatric Surgery

A Healthy Weight Loss Plan

Bariatric surgery, also known as weight loss surgery, is a surgical procedure designed to help individuals with obesity achieve a healthy weight. It involves one of three main types of operations: gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, and intra gastric balloon. The procedure reduces hunger, controls portion size, and decreases calorie absorption, leading to effective weight loss and improved health outcomes. However, it requires long-term commitment to lifestyle changes for successful results.
