Bariatric surgery, also called “weight loss surgery,” is a type of surgical procedure that is meant to help obese people lose weight.
Bariatric surgical techniques work by altering your digestive system — typically your stomach, but sometimes also your small intestine — to limit the number of calories you can intake and absorb. They can also suppress hunger signals sent from your digestive system to your brain.
Many metabolic illnesses, such as diabetes and fatty liver disease, are linked to obesity; these procedures can help cure and prevent them.
Bariatric surgery has been proven to be the only long-term solution to obesity.
