The main focus of bariatric surgery is to help people lose weight. Bariatric helps obese patients who find it difficult to lose weight through other methods, as the surgery decreases the storage capacity of the stomach and consequently limits food intake to help the patients feel satisfied by eating little.
We have some of the best surgeons in Brazil to provide our clients with the safety of performing their long-awaited surgery with renowned professionals, chosen by the patients themselves.
A similar study done in the United states led by the Harvard School of Public Health in 2020 estimated that ,obese Americans will be 48.9% of the US population by 2030, if current trends continue. The research published in the New England Journal of Medicine predicts that about a quarter of the population will have severe obesity. Currently, 40% of American adults are obese and 18% have severe obesity. The total number of obese people in the country would increase from 99 million to 164 million, according to the study.Thus, it is important to understand that living with obesity is a very great risk to health, and it can decrease the longevity of the patient who lives with the disease. This is why bariatric surgery is such a viable and important option. Here on the website of Medical Travel Brazil,we provide a post explaining what Bariatric Surgery is, where we emphasize that even before the patient is recommended for the procedure, he or she must go through a multidisciplined medical team, psychological, nutritional and cardiac evaluations, as well as other specific tests. Thus, when the patient is identified as suitable for surgery, the entire surgical process begins, including transportation, hotel, hospital, and the best medical team to perform the procedure offered by Medical Travel Brazil. In general, bariatrics gives the patient a more socially accepted body, but this procedure goes beyond aesthetics. Thus, we have separated the major benefits of bariatric surgery to show the patient the main benefits for their mental and physical health.

According to the study (https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/26599565/) that examined more than 80 patients with diabetes after bariatric surgery using the Bypass technique, 52.6% of the patients had a total recuperation from diabetes and 6.4% had partial recuperation.
After reduction surgery, the stomach cannot digest the food, which in this case is a good thing, because it gets to the intestine relatively intact and faster. This process releases numerous hormones, among them GLP1, which helps regulate appetite and glucose. This hormone acts on the pancreas, which, in turn, starts producing more insulin.
