Bariatric surgery guarantees a better quality of life
Bariatric or weight loss surgery helps to reduce obesity by cutting excess body weight. It reduces the stomach capacity up to 70 percent and a person’s diet by 80 to 90 percent. It is a laparoscopic procedure which involves fewer scars, less pain, no blood loss, early recovery and shorter hospital stay.
It’s not just a weight loss, its health gain!
Obesity is associated with various impairments like poor quality of life, physical limitation and various health conditions. Bariatric surgery benefits are not just limited to treating morbid obesity; it also reduces the risk of premature death.
