Bariatric Surgery- Advantages & Complications

Bariatric surgery (weight loss surgery) includes a range of procedures performed on those who have obesity. Weight loss is achieved by reducing the size of the abdomen with a gastric band or through the removal of a little of the abdomen (sleeve surgical operation or biliopancreatic diversion with internal organ} switch) or by resecting and re-routing the little intestine to a small abdomen pouches (gastric bypass surgery). For obese patients, surgical intervention is an possibility and is usually the treatment of choice. Non-surgical liposuction techniques use laser energy, radiofrequency, ultrasound or cold (cryolipolysis) to reduce fat. though a fat loss is more delicate with non-surgical lipolysis techniques compared to surgical liposuction, non-surgical lipolysis techniques have many benefits together with reduced risk, reduced price, and reduced healing time. plastic surgery will play a very vital part relative to huge weight loss. it is already well known that fat pads will be removed either by aesthetic or plastic surgery. more recently, surgeons are exploring ways of plastic reconstruction when large weight-loss, like that obtained when organic process surgery. Bariatric surgeons should be aware that a number of their patients will want serious and painful reconstructive procedures. when common plastic surgery procedures, obese patients have additional complications and create additional hospital visits-leading to higher healthcare prices.
