Bariatric surgery has been around for about 60 years. This procedure is the most recommended to help people with a certain degree of obesity lose weight. The Federal Council of Medicine itself recommends this surgery. The procedure has been updated over the decades and currently has a set of safe and effective techniques in order to reduce the stomach to inhibit hunger and reduce the amount of food ingested by the patient throughout the day.
Obesity is a pathology that seriously affects many people around the world. This disease, most of the time, is caused by bad eating habits, lack of exercise, and an irregular sleep routine, and these are the main factors that limit people from losing weight in a natural way.
In view of this, bariatric surgery, in turn, ends up being recommended specialists in the area after the patient has undergone monitoring by various professionals, such as a psychologist, nutritionist, physical education professionals, and in more specific cases, doctors from other specialties.
Normally, the bariatric procedure is recommended for people with grade 2 to 3 obesity and who have already tried other methods but were not successful, including physical exercises and diets.
What are the types of bariatric surgery?
The two most used techniques of bariatric surgery are Sleeve and Bypass, both of which result in the reduction of the patient’s desire for food, so that he or she cannot eat the same amount of food. In addition, in the first month, the patient’s diet is practically made up of liquid foods.
