Why is bariatric surgery needed?
Bariatric Surgery is a specific type of surgical operation which helps one to lose about 60 to 80 percent of excess weight from the body by making changes in the human digestive system.

It can also be a good option for a person who after losing weight through other methods has failed to maintain the same shape and has gained weight thereafter.

Many studies have proved that obesity is a disease and risk factor for many diseases, bariatric surgery prevents severe health risks like type 2 diabetes, hypertension, osteoarthritis, sleep apnea, colonic and pancreatic cancers, etc. It is unlike any cosmetic surgery performed only for beautifying or good-looking skin.

Studies have shown that people who undergo weight-loss treatment have a positive effect on their lives as they feel more confident, feel more energized, and have an overall reduction in stress levels.
