Obesity is not just a lifestyle issue – it can also lead to a number of health, self esteem and emotional issues. When options such as diet and exercise fail, health professionals suggest bariatric surgery that makes the stomach smaller and also changes the small intestine.
Like any surgery, choosing that route is a major decision. All surgical procedures come with risks such as infection or prolonged healing periods. Therefore, it’s important to know what you are signing up for, but also be aware that opting for a bariatric procedure maybe the best option for your quality of life and health.
