Weight loss surgeries have become more common in the recent years. The main goal of these surgeries is to restrict food intake or interrupt digestive processes of patients.
Despite the fact that these procedures have become more common, weight loss surgeries are not recommended to everyone. These procedures are usually recommended to patients who are morbidly obese or patients who are obese, but have other comorbidities (obesity related diseases).
An individual is considered morbidly obese if he or she has a BMI of 40 or more, or 35 or more and experiencing obesity-related health conditions, such as high blood pressure or diabetes.
Depending on your level of obesity, your physician will recommend one of the following options:
Gastric Sleeve Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass
Gastric Mini Bypass Gastric Band
Non Surgical Solutions
Along with surgical options for weight loss, non-surgical solutions can be just as effective in providing results.
Non-surgical solutions are a great option, whether patients are getting ready to undergo bariatric surgery and looking to start their weight loss journey before their operation or for those who are looking to lose weight naturally using non-invasive methods.
