Bariatric Surgery Benefits & Requirements

Unread post by Hollyrose » Wed Oct 10, 2018 4:22 pm

The benefits are scientifically proven, but losing weight and maintaining the weight loss is not easy and requires commitment and medical attention, as explained in the study “Long-term Management of Patients After Weight Loss Surgery.” Despite the fact that patients are usually excited about the weight loss and all of the improvements it brings with it, it may be easy to go back to old habits, including overeating or being sedentary, leading to a regaining of weight.

“Long-term bariatric follow-up requires a team approach and attention to several aspects of care. Nutrition is the most important aspect of follow-up to safely maximize weight loss and prevent weight gain. Exercise helps to maintain weight loss. Complications need to be identified early and can result from improper behavior or from surgical complications. Emotional difficulties occur in many patients,” state the authors, who also stress the importance of emotional and psychological evaluation to understand the reasons for previous overweight and avoid it during long-term treatment.

hi there!
this surgery really helped my brother. He was over weight and his doctor suggested him this surgery. He got his surgery done in India last year.
Sure my brother loves India. ;)
