Obesity is the most severe stage of weight gain that can pose a lot of health risks for the patient. If you are obese, you must know all the ways in which you struggle with your weight and feel as if you have been trapped in a vicious weight gain cycle.

Weight loss surgeryA popular weight loss surgery is called bariatric surgery that works by changing the anatomy of one’s gastrointestinal tract i.e. the stomach and the digestive system or triggers different physiologic changes in the body that change the fat metabolism and energy balance. It is important to note that all the changes that occur because of bariatric surgery is not only because of the surgery itself but also because of other factors like exercise, behaviour modification, exercise and even more.

When you have tried a hundred diets only to see your weight increasing without a halt, the only option that you are left with is surgery. There is some justice in assuming weight loss surgery to be really the ultimate and the most efficient call for those looking forward to a slim and fit body. We tell you why they fall on surgery when everything else fails.


Increased Energy Expenditure

Bariatric surgery induces hormonal changes which improve weight loss by enhancing or maintaining the number of calories burned. Certain surgeries, in fact, even increase the amount of energy that is expended. This, therefore, ensures that dietary weight loss does not work as much as surgical weight loss.

A High Probability of Physical Activity and Positive Attitude

Weight loss surgery gives the opportunity for one to lose weight significantly. This, consequentially, induces several changes in the body that help it to reduce the defects of fat metabolism. Significant amount of weight loss makes one engage more in physical activity. This is more psychological and physical or emotional. When you step on in your weight loss trend and if a major part of your goal has been fulfilled, you are highly likely to follow everything that will keep things balanced. Increased physical activity additionally improves the body’s ability to burn fat, decreases stress levels and allows one to have a positive personal attitude.

Long-term Weight Loss

Weight loss surgeries lead to long-term weight loss. Several studies have proven that more than 90 percent of those people who had had obesity earlier maintained 50 percent of more of their excess weight loss after going through a bariatric surgery. Moreover, 80 percent of those affected by super severe obesity tend to maintain more than 50 percent of the excess loss of body weight.

Bariatric surgeries generally change the course of life by bringing about positive changes, thus enhancing psychological status and the general quality of life.
