Bariatric Surgery

Bariatric Surgery

Bariatric surgery focuses on bringing alterations to your digestive system which consequently, helps you lose weight on an extensive scale. Basically, the surgery reduces the hormone Ghrelin - which if more stimulates appetite and promotes fat deposition in the body. The procedure also reduces the capacity to which a stomach can afford food. Bariatric Surgery is the most suitable for people whose BMI (Body Mass Index) exceeds 35. The perfect phase to direct an individual towards Bariatric Surgery is when they do not achieve any positive results in fighting obesity, even after relying on medications or bringing changes to their lifestyle.

Bariatric surgery can be suggested to anyone who is struggling with other health problems resulting from obesity, like Dyslepedemia, high Blood Pressure, sleep disorders, PCOD.

Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB)

Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) is a type of weight-loss surgery that reduces the size of your stomach to a small pouch – about the size of an egg, and then attaches this pouch directly to the small intestine, bypassing most of the rest of the stomach and the upper part of the small intestine.
