People are recognized as obese and fat on the basis of body mass index (BMI). When a person can not reduce weight by all means and products meant for weight loss, he is given and recommended a weight loss surgery. The surgery destined for weight reduction is called bariatric surgery. In this treatment the doctors remove the excessive fats from the body of an obese person on whom the dieting and weight loss products prove useless even after long term use and efforts. It means that this is the last resort to prevent dangers of obesity.
Surgery is done when all other measures are failed but this has many risks for the person getting bariatric surgery. It is mostly found that the person receiving the surgery later on suffers weakness and anemia. While the doctors’ focus many aspects of an obese person before treating him. The psychological health of a person is considered before he or she is given a surgery to reduce fats in the body.
The doctors prepare the person before the surgery in many ways. The doctors usually advice the patient to strictly follow the diet plan and seriously cooperate with the doctors in this regard. It is sometimes required by few people that they loose a certain amount of fats of their body by dieting before they are operated by the doctors. For this doctors need the cooperation of that person. A health care team follows up the case to avoid complexities. The Cardiologists, nutritionists, surgeons and physicians work together to make the operation successful.
The weight loss surgery is surely a blessing for a person who is facing threats of life due to obesity. Moreover, there are many types of weight loss surgeries which are suggested according to the requirement of the physical condition of a patient. The weight loss surgeries have their own complications and risks which are informed to the patient before he prepares himself for the treatment. Many of the operations as such are found to be successful. But the side effects are unavoidable. Only remedies can be adopted to cure them. But in fact medicines used for one purpose may cause other troubles and health problems and when medicines are taken to cure the side effects, they go to make another health problem. So the use of medicines must be done only if there is no alternative to it. Similar must be the approach towards the surgery.
