The Benefits of Bariatric Surgery
For many obese patients, bariatric surgery is the only effective way to lose those extra pounds that could not be lost through conventional means (i.e. diet and exercise).
It’s not considered a ‘cop-out’ at all. Part of the criteria for bariatric surgery is a history of unsuccessful attempts to lose weight with diet and exercise. Health insurance companies also consider this before they can cover the procedure.
Bariatric surgery leads to weight loss because it causes changes in your body that affect how much you can eat and/or how the nutrients are being absorbed by your body.
With adherence to a post-surgical eating and exercise plan, you can successfully lose weight and keep it off.
Studies have also shown that bariatric surgery can improve obesity-related conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, and sleep apnea. And, if you’re trying to conceive, losing the extra weight may help you get pregnant (in many cases, you have to wait at least 18 months after surgery before trying).
