Surgery for Obesity

Bariatric surgery is the term for operations to help promote weight loss. Bariatric surgical procedures are only considered for people with severe obesity and not for individuals with a mild weight problem. It consists in an anatomical transformation of digestive tract, in which stomach size is usually reduced. It can also be associated to fat absorption reduction procedures. Currently this is the only method against obesity and its complications, proven to be safe, effective and with permanent results.

Bariatric surgery is an option to reduce the different diseases caused by morbid obesity. Patients who intend to undergo this surgery must be highly motivated. They must be able to adhere to diet and exercise habits, and medical guidelines for the rest of their lives after surgery.
