What is a bariatric surgery?

There are many types of weight-loss surgeries, collectively known as Bariatric Surgery.


What are the types of weight loss or Bariatric surgeries?

Each type of bariatric surgery has its own pros and cons. Be sure to take your doctor’s advice before going for one. Here’s a look at common types of bariatric surgery:

    • Roux-en-Y
    • Biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch
    • Laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB)
    • Vertical banded gastroplasty
    • Sleeve Gastrectomy

Which type of weight loss or bariatric surgery is best for you depend on your situation. Your surgeon will guide you considering a few factors.


Why Bariatric Surgeries are done?

Bariatric surgeries are done to help you lose excess weight and reduce your risk of potentially life – threatening weight-related health problems, which includes:

  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease
  • Heart Disease
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Severe Sleep Apnea
  • Type 2 Diabetes
  • Stroke

Weight loss surgeries like Gastric Bypass surgeries are done only after you have tried to lose weight by improving your diet and exercise habits.


Who are the candidates for the bariatric surgery?

In general, gastric bypass and other weight loss surgeries are for those who:

  • Have body mass index (BMI) 40 or higher (i.e. extreme obesity).
  • Have BMI 35 to 39.9 (Obesity), and have a serious weight-related health problems, like type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure or severe sleep apnea.

But gastric bypass and weight loss surgeries are not for everyone who are severely overweight. One may need to meet certain medical guidelines to qualify weight-loss surgeries.


What are the medical guidelines that are to be qualified?

  • You will likely have an extensive screening process to see if you qualify.
  • You must also be willing to make permanent changes to lead a healthier lifestyle.
  • You may be required to participate in long-term-follow-up plans which will include monitoring your nutrition, your lifestyle and behaviour, and your medical conditions.

How you prepare for the surgery?

If you qualify the above mentioned guidelines, the medical team will give you instructions on how to prepare for your specific surgery. You may need to undergo various lab tests and exams before the surgery. You may have restrictions on eating and drinking and which medications you intake. You may be required to start a physical activity programme and to stop any kind of tobacco use.


Why do you need to have a psychologist’s evaluation?

Bariatric surgery will affect you for the rest of your life, so this is a decision that requires a lot of serious thoughts. For many people, the results are positive, but successful treatment takes dedication and commitment to a lifelong lifestyle change. Most psychiatrists will look at your understanding of the risks and complications of bariatric surgery and your desire to follow the basic recovery plans to see if bariatric surgery is right for you.


What can be the results of the surgery?

Gastric Bypass and other weight loss surgeries can provide long-term weight loss. The amount of weight you lose depends on your type of surgery and your change in lifestyle habits. In addition to weight loss, the surgery may improve or resolve conditions like:

  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease
  • Heart Disease
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Severe Sleep Apnea
  • Type 2 Diabetes
  • Stroke

The weight loss surgeries can also improve your ability to perform routine activities, which may help you improve your quality of life. Patients will see the best long term results if they continue to:

  • Eat healthy, balanced diets
  • Exercise on a regular basis
  • Take the required supplements
  • Commit to the mental and emotional changes required to sustain the weight loss

Also DESUN has the largest Heart Institute in Kolkata to handle any cardiac emergencies during or after the operation.
