Typical candidates for bariatric surgery

Bariatric surgery is commonly recommended if you have had a long-term battle with obesity and tried various conservative weight loss methods (like diet and exercise) to address it.

Scientific research data indicates that weight loss surgery is the only effective treatment option that helps you achieve significant weight loss that stays off long-term. This is especially the treatment of choice for patients with metabolic syndrome, which can lead to diabetes, heart disease and infertility.

Bariatric surgery might be indicated for people with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or over. You can check if you are a candidate for weight loss surgery here: https://www.advancedobesitysurgery.com.au/am-i-a-candidate-advanced-surgicare/

Bariatric surgery options

This surgery makes the stomach smaller and re-routes the small bowel loops in a different way. It brings a portion of the small bowel up, connecting it to the small stomach pouch. It restricts the amount of food a person can ingest. It is one of the most common and effective weight loss surgeries. This is an ideal operation for patients with gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD) and patients affected by diabetes mellitus.

This is the most common and popular bariatric procedure in the world. This surgery reduces the size of your stomach and limits the amount of food someone can consume. It removes the large outer part of the stomach (about 70-80%), leaving behind a small, banana-shaped section of the stomach. It also reduces the production of the hunger hormone ghrelin, keeping patients content and hunger-free while eating less.
