Weight loss surgery, also known as bariatric surgery, is a surgical procedure designed to help individuals struggling with obesity achieve significant and sustainable weight loss. These procedures work by reducing the size of the stomach, altering the digestive process, or both, thereby limiting the amount of food a person can eat and/or reducing the absorption of nutrients. Common types of weight loss surgery include gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, and gastric banding. In addition to promoting weight loss, bariatric surgery can also lead to improvements in obesity-related health conditions such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and sleep apnea. It is typically recommended for individuals who have not achieved success with traditional weight loss methods and who have a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or higher, or a BMI of 35-39.9 with obesity-related health conditions. Bariatric surgery is often considered a life-changing intervention that can improve both physical health and overall quality of life.
