Bariatric Surgery / A New Book By Mary Lime

This is out of a new book I just purchased. Looks to be a real informative book. The title is "Bariatric Surgery - Around The World One Of The Most Important Medical..."

I bought it on Amazon.com in "Kindle" form. I am sure it will answer some questions for you along with my favorite, "An Experts Guide To Weight Loss Surgery"  By: Dr Garth Davis of Big Medicine. Dr Garth covers the top four procedures in his book from A-Z in simple language. it is a must read for the most bang for your buck, I also purchased my copy of this through Amazon.com.

What Is a Bariatric Procedure?
Bariatric is a medical field that is focused on both the study and treatment of obesity. Bariatric procedure is typically an operation that usually involves gastric bypass surgery or the placement of a gastric band to regulate or treat obesity. There are different variants of bariatric procedures, some of which are performed up to this day.

True gastric bypass surgery is exactly what it sounds like: a part of the gastrointestinal tract is taken out or altered, with the normal route being bypassed. In some instances, the area that is operated on in gastric bypass surgery is the duodenum, the first section of the small intestine that connects the organ to the stomach. Other types of bariatric procedures make use of medical staples to make the stomach smaller. There are also lap bands, essentially adjustable sleeves that are used to constrict the stomach.

While there are different bariatric procedures, most of these share the same goal, which is to reduce the amount of food that people consume or retain in their systems. Because they eat less, their bodies also absorb fewer calories, which then lead to weight loss. Even so, the diet plans will vary according to the physician and the type of procedure administered. For example, some recommend consuming protein and less on carbs, while others prescribe the complete opposite. Even so, these are essentially window dressing, as the weight loss formula remains the same: to lose weight, you will need to consume fewer calories than what you actually burn.

The types of patients who are considered for bariatric surgery are those who are grossly obese, that is, those who have a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or higher. (35 with medical markers) These include those who have tried all sorts of dieting programs and workout routines without much success, which is why bariatric procedure is considered to be the best, and sometimes the only viable option they have. Even so, physicians would still recommend that they strictly follow the tailored diet they are given after their surgery. This may include taking vitamins and supplements, but making lifestyle adjustments remain paramount in order to help them maintain their bodies and their health after surgery.

After the procedure, the type of food and drink they take in are carefully monitored and regulated. This can be difficult for long-time obese patients who may feel that these changes are very drastic, and in truth, it can be. Exercise also plays a large role in post-procedure routines after the recovery period has passed and when they have reached a certain amount of weight loss. The patients' attitudes toward food and eating will also need to be modified so as to retain the long-term effects of their surgery.

The procedure you will go through will depend on several factors, which is why patients who are considering going through a bariatric operation need to have several consultations with a team of specialists to let them know whether it’s the right option for them. After all, surgery isn't for everyone. Furthermore, no matter what surgery recommended by your physician, you will also need a certain amount of willpower and genuinely want to change in order for this to actually be effective.

Like other types of surgeries, bariatric procedures have their own shares of benefits and disadvantages. Surgery is often recommended for people who have previously tried other forms of weight loss strategies without success; because this meant that they've already exhausted all of their other options. The initial procedure is done within a two-year span, which will then lead to a lifetime commitment towards weight control.

In spite of the challenges that they are faced with, the majority of those who chose to go under the knife report that they are satisfied with the results of their surgery. Because they weigh less, there is less strain on their joints and their heart and the risk of getting diabetes is greatly reduced. They also have more energy for doing more physical tasks, and they have better overall health. Lastly, they also feel more attractive, and their relationships have also improved thanks to their level of self-esteem improvement due to the surgery.
