As mentioned before, obesity is considered the second cause of preventable deaths worldwide and there are many obesity related health problems that make life disabled.
Taking a decision to any surgery is a major, life-changing decision that involves weighing the risks and benefits.
The benefits of Obesity Surgery are plentiful and enormous, but it is still a major surgery, and as with any surgical procedure, there are associated risks. So, any patient should know the risks and benefits of these weight loss surgery procedures.
He should make a balance between risks and benefits to make an informed comfortable confident decision.
Weight loss surgeries are not plastic procedure, but they are procedures to improve health, quality of life, and, of course body shape (significant weight loss). However, the results of this improvement are more with gastric bypass than with sleeve gastrectomy and adjustable gastric banding (as they are not malabsorptive procedures).
