Obesity Surgery

What Is Bariatric Surgery?

Bariatric surgery is performed to help people lose weight if methods such as diet or sports are not useful for weight loss. Before obesity surgery, natural weight loss methods should be tried. If these methods do not work, bariatric surgery is performed.


Before obesity surgery, a detailed analysis is performed to determine whether the patient is suitable for the surgical procedure. The suitability of patients for this operation is determined by their body mass index. If his body mass index is above 40, the patient can be operated on. Obesity surgery is performed by different methods. General anesthesia and closed method are usually used. An experienced and specialized doctor should perform obesity surgery.


After surgery, the doctor will present a plan that the patient must follow and contains some rules. After surgery, it is just as important as surgery. Therefore, the patient should pay close attention to himself. After obesity operations, much attention should be paid to nutrition. In general, weight is given within 1 year. More sonar, the patient needs to create a new lifestyle and eating habit.
