Surgical procedures to try and help a person to lose weight are becoming more and more popular. Bariatric Surgery is highly effective in that the procedure will help a patient to lose weight, but also more importantly will stop the longer term urges to regain weight by modifying the appetite drives and food cravings.
In addition to Bariatric Surgery increasingly being recognised as the most effective weight loss strategy, it is also being accepted that it is a much safer form of surgery than previous public perceptions.
How many treatments will you need?
Bariatric Surgery is a one-off treatment but requires some downtime with patients undergoing the treatment, usually taking one or two weeks off work.
Bariatric Surgery will help dramatically improve a person’s health, particularly if they suffer with conditions associated with their obesity. These include type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, sleep apnoea and joint problems.
