Weight Loss Surgery (Bariatric Surgery)
Bariatric surgery (weight loss surgery) is the only effective and long-term method in the fight against obesity. Thanks to surgical treatment, patients not only have the best chance of achieving a healthier weight and body mass index (BMI), but also a chance to change their existing lifestyle. Weight loss surgery involves a change in the anatomy of the gastrointestinal tract (stomach and digestive system). This causes changes in the body with a change in the energy balance and metabolism of fats.
By changing the anatomy of the gastrointestinal tract, weight loss surgery procedures affect the production of intestinal hormones. The result is a decrease in the feeling of hunger and appetite and that increases the feeling “full”. With increased weight loss, physical activity is increased.
