What is Bariatric Surgery?
You will feel full even though you ate a very less amount of food, that is what exactly Bariatric surgery does. Yes, Bariatric or weight loss surgery makes you eat less and help reduce your weight. Here it is how.
Bariatric surgery includes a variety of surgical procedures performed on people with obesity to lose weight. In this procedure, weight loss is achieved by reducing the size of the stomach with a gastric band or through removing a portion of the stomach or by resecting and re-routing the small intestine to a small pouch.
Bariatric surgery procedure reduces the stomach’s storage capacity, which limits your food intake and helps you feel full much sooner than normal. However, the experts of bariatric surgery suggest that this surgery is only an option for people with body mass index (BMI) of 40 or more but not recommended for those with only a few pounds to lose.
