Long-Term Results of Bariatric Surgery

Unread post by Amelia » Wed Oct 10, 2018 4:14 pm

Bariatric surgery is a term that includes all types of surgical procedures that facilitate weight loss through the limitation of food intake and/or malabsorption of calories. Due to the numerous medically supervised weight loss programs available to patients today, surgery is often the last report for those with a Body Mass Index higher than 40, or a BMI of 35 and an associated disease, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, metabolic disease or sleep apnea.

There are four main types of bariatric surgery: gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, adjustable gastric band (gastric banding), and biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch, and given the improvements and advancements to the procedures, it is now possible for surgeons to perform weight loss surgery using minimally invasive techniques. However, weight loss surgery does not cause weight loss directly; it helps in the process, which only begins with the surgery. Patients need to be fully committed to lifestyle alterations and be aware of the long-term results of the surgery.

My revision was deemed "medically necessary" because of damage in my esophagus from reflux. Saw the surgeon and was sceduled for surgery within a week. I have Kaiser insurance, so its all in the same facility.
