Weight Loss (Bariatric) Surgery:
Bariatric surgery ( weight loss surgery ) includes a variety of procedures performed on people who have obesity. Weight loss is achieved by reducing the size of the stomach with a gastric band or through the removal of a portion of the stomach.

Gastric banding used to be the hottest weight loss surgery in the world, but in recent years, the gastric sleeve has surged to the top—and those are just two of the many procedures designed to help us shed pounds and get healthier.
Gastric sleeve surgery
Top-Weight-Loss-Surgery-Procedures This is the most commonly performed weight loss surgery today largely because it’s the most effective with the lowest risk of complications.
What’s involved? “We go in laparoscopically through five tiny incisions or a single incision in the belly button and cut out 70 to 80 percent of the stomach so that it looks like a sleeve,” says Dr. Imani. “You feel full quicker, and there are marked decreases in levels of ghrelin, also known as the hunger hormone,” he says. “My patients are simply not hungry and have to remind themselves to eat.”
Benefits: “You can lose up to 70 percent of your excess weight in a year,” Dr. Imani says. There are also improvements, if not reversals, in some of the conditions linked to obesity such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and sleep apnea. Still, “surgery is just a tool, not a cure.”
Some things to know about weight-loss procedures in general: If they involve surgery, they carry the typical risks of excessive bleeding, infection, blood clots, and a potentially bad reaction to anesthesia. Depending on the nature of the surgery, risks can include gallstones, hernia, and stomach perforation. And because the operations can block the absorption of certain foods and nutrients, you may need to take nutritional supplements.
To qualify for these procedures, you must have a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or greater, be roughly 100 pounds’ overweight, or have a BMI of at least 35 and one or more obesity-related issues, such as diabetes or high cholesterol. In case you’re wondering, here’s what you need to know about BMI.
