Obesity is a global issue. It not only creates psychological problems, but also is dangerous as it can lead to adverse health risks. Hence, it is very important to lose weight as early as possible. Regular exercise with right food is the best way to lose weight. But if you want to lose weight faster, and exercise or diet is not giving you the desired results, then you can opt for a weight loss surgery, also known as bariatric surgery. It is the fastest known method of losing weight.
This surgery is mainly opted for those people who:
- Has a severe obesity, i.e. their BMI is above 40;
- Weighs more than 100 pounds in case of men, and 80 pounds in case of women; and
- Has Type 2 Diabetes, sleep apnea or heart disease.
There are 2 forms of weight loss surgery; one is laparoscopy surgery and other is gastric bypass surgery. In the former one, a small incision is made in the body and extra fat is removed along with providing proper lifts in the body areas whereas the latter one involves bigger wounds. Some people consider this as a cosmetic surgery to make them look slimmer while for some others this is a life saver which potentially enhances the quality of life and longevity.
