Bariatric surgery: benefits and risks for Health


Bariatric surgery: benefits and risks for health

You may be considering bariatric surgery if you are overweight or obese.

For many people, surgical weight loss is one of the only viable ways to lose

a significant amount of weight and enjoy improved health

But, it is essential to realize that this is a severe undertaking.

You should spend time researching

the topic and, if possible, talking with people who have

already undergone a weight loss procedure.

Understanding the benefits and risks of bariatric surgery is

essential to making an informed decision. To help you get started,

here’s a little guide.


Rapid weight loss

This is the most significant benefit of bariatric surgery. Immediately after surgery,

most people begin to lose weight quickly.

This quick weight loss typically lasts for at least

a year and a half, resulting in a significant reduction in body weight.

However, it is essential to note that many people begin to regain weight in 2 years,

significantly if they have not changed their healthy lifestyle/diet!

Improving health conditions related to obesity

For many people, improving their health,

following bariatric surgery is just as important as weight loss itself.

And for a good reason: people who have been suffering from

obesity-related debilitating diseases (such as diabetes) for years

often experience considerable improvements in a short period.

Risk and side effects:


Death in Bariatric surgery

A small percentage of patients with bariatric surgery

die during surgery or from complications

within days and weeks of surgery.

Post-operative complications:

Nutritional deficiencies:

Nutritional deficiencies

Some types of weight loss surgery reduce the body’s ability

to absorb essential vitamins and minerals.

Many patients must take dietary supplements daily or

they will develop anemia, osteoporosis, metabolic bone disease,



More than a third of patients in gastric surgery develop

gallstones due to the rapid weight loss that occurs in the months

following a weight reduction procedure.

Side effects:

nausea, vomiting, diarrhea

Some of the most common side effects in patients with

bariatric surgery include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea,

bloating, excessive sweating, increased gas, and dizziness.

As you can see, bariatric surgery has enormous benefits and risks.

If you are severely obese, this option can reduce

your body weight and improve. If not drop,

many of your health problems are related to obesity.

Understand the risk and be prepared to make relatively

significant lifestyle changes after the procedure.

If you are not seriously obese, you should consider

diet and exercise before bariatric surgery.
