Bariatric surgery refers to a series of weight loss procedures that an obese individual can have in order to reduce their food intake, therefore causing them to lose weight. A person is classed as obese if their Body Mass Index (BMI) is over 30. If their BMI is over 40, they are deemed severely obese.
Bariatric Surgery not only leads to a sustained weight loss but also help in control or total resolution of Type 2 Diabetes, Hypertension, High Cholesterol, Arthritis, Infertility, Sleep Apnea, Migraine Headache, Asthma and many other disorders.
Plastic surgery can effectively reduce weight to very less extend with no guaranty of maintained weight loss. There is no reduction in the status of co-morbities. Bariatric Surgery gives a guaranteed and maintained weight loss with resolution of various co-morbities like Diabetes, Hypertension, Arthritis. etc.
Obese ladies usually suffer from menstrual irregularities and infertility. After the surgery the imbalance of hormones gets corrected which helps in pregnancy. We have a patient from Jalgaon who has undergone surgery and now has delivered baby after 8 years of marriage at the age of 32 years.
