Why Choose Bariatric Surgery?
Bariatrics is a part of medicine that provides aid to people dealing with obesity; studies have shown that patients following weight loss surgery have been able to lose a significant amount of weight. Weight loss surgery helps people digest and absorb food in different patterns then before the surgical procedure, changing how the body processes nutrients and food.
Benefits of Bariatric Surgery
Weight loss as a result of bariatric surgery improves many health conditions related with obesity, like hypertension, diabetes, sleep apnea, high cholesterol, among others. All of the medical bariatric procedures demonstrate similar results with variations in patient outcomes. These changes occur because surgeries impact the amount of food that one can eat; also studies have demonstrated that there is a change in how hormones are produced in the intestines helping in the reduction of hunger.
There is also an improvement in Glycemic control after bariatric surgery, research has shown how neuronal and behavioral reward centers in the brain correlate with glycemic control after surgery.
Some patients refer that the manner in which food is perceived by them has changed post operation, they not only feel fuller faster, also show a decrease in appetite, and report that they have developed an increased acuity to some flavors, the appeal for fatty foods decreases or somehow could be modified. Making the life style changes required easier to navigate.
Eating behaviors may also change following bariatric surgery. Patients may be less likely to find that emotional eating is a problem and eating cues may have less impact. The exact cause of these changes following weight loss surgery is not yet clear, but many researchers suspect that gut hormones and the effect these have on the nervous system may play a role.
Lifestyle changes are key to keeping long lasting results, exercise, healthy food choices, emotional adjustments, etc. All of these will ensure a better quality of life.
All of these benefits help to contribute to making a success out of the weight procedure that has been elected. Weight loss surgery is not a magical solution, it´s a choice (sometimes the only one left) that will provide lasting benefits if we are committed to improving our way of life.
