When all possible weight loss programs fail to initialize, the only option left with one to lose those extra pounds is weight loss through surgery. Extremely obese people are the ones who are generally seen to opt for weight loss surgery. While considering a surgery, the most likely question that pops on ones mind is whether the surgery will be safe and effective or not. This is the reason why one must consider a proper medical practitioner on the implications of this surgery process before opting for the same. Generally extremely overweight obese people with low rates of metabolism are the ones who would have to undergo a weight loss surgery to lose weight. With more and more obese people becoming aware of the serious health implications of being obese and thereby looking to shed off the extra pounds at the earliest, weight loss surgeries are gaining large scale popularity.
Before a weight loss surgery, a complete medical examination is conducted on the patient who wishes to undergo this surgery procedure to check on any health implications or complications that may arise as a result of the surgery, and whether it will be safe or not. However with the advance of technology, high clinical procedures are being conducted for these weight loss surgeries to make the procedure easy and safe and will definitely be beneficial to the health of people who have been obese all their life.
A bariatric surgeon or an experienced medical practitioner is the best person to consult before undergoing a weight loss surgery as they are the best people to judge your situation and suggest whether the treatment procedure and the consequent surgeries will be beneficial and safe for the individual. To analyze this, they might even carry out a series of tests to confirm the situation. Health experts, psychiatrists and dieticians should also be consulted before commencement of the procedure. The results of the surgery may vary from one person to another, but the most common fact is that post weight loss surgery, the person undergoing the same should have been successful in losing at least 50% of the weight gained. Generally 30% is lost within the first 6 months of surgery while in a year’s time, the most successful of weight loss surgeries will help you lose at least 75% of the weight gained. The weight loss surgery has a positive long term effect on ones health and can leave one free of excess body weight for a period of 10 – 15 years post surgery, if proper care is taken with a planned diet and exercises incorporated in the daily life.
