Weight loss surgery is otherwise referred to as "Bariatric Surgery" in Medical terminology.
April 3, 2014 (Newswire) - Throughout the world, both adults and children face a common problem today - ie., Obesity. If a person is not health conscious and is overweight, he is sure to suffer from health complications like hypertension and diabetes.
However, dieting and rigorous exercises may not be a permanent and effective solution at all times. In fact they tend to give up after a few months because they feel that there is no improvement. This results in them gaining more weight within a few years.
For such individuals, weight loss surgery is the only treatment for an everlasting benefit.
It is a surgical procedure carried out in people suffering from chronic morbid obesity. This surgery is not meant for everyone as the medical agencies along with the government have set certain guidelines to determine if the person is a good candidate for these surgeries which also includes gastric sleeve surgery.
Generally people who tend to lose weight through this surgery live a healthier postop life by following a healthy weight management. They are prescribed dietary nutritional supplements by the surgeon to ensure that they do not suffer from any nutritional deficiencies as a result of the weight loss surgery.
Often weight loss surgeries are misunderstood by people who think that this surgery gets rid of all the fatty tissues leaving you looking slimmer and in perfect shape when you leave the hospital.
This is not really true as this surgery never gets rid of any weight but reduces the size of the stomach so that your food intake is restricted and gradually you lose weight by following the prescribed dietary nutritional supplements given by the physicians.
