Revision Bariatric Surgery in Navi Mumbai

Revision of Bariatric Surgery

Obesity is a health hazard that is gradually increasing day by day and has become an epidemic of the 21st century. Two-thirds of the adult population in the western countries are obese, and the numbers are increasing day by day within the Indian population. Obesity is a risk factor for a lot of diseases and co-morbid conditions like diabetes mellitus type 2 and hypertension. Severe obesity even predisposes the person to the risk of developing certain cancers.

Bariatric surgeries are surgical procedures that aim to decrease the volume of the person's stomach to stop him from eating the amount of food they used to, thus helping with weight loss. There are different types of bariatric surgeries. Some are more, and some are less invasive, including:

  • Gastric Bypass
  • Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy
  • Gastric Banding
  • Endoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy
  • These surgeries are recommended for someone whose weight is significantly above the ideal body weight range for his height and age. BMI measures obesity in a person and depends on his weight and height. An ideal BMI is between 20 to 25. The higher the BMI, the higher the extent of obesity.
  • As per norms, a person with a BMI higher than 40 is considered morbidly obese and is a candidate for bariatric surgical procedures like Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy.
  • Bariatric surgeries are recommended even for people with a BMI of more than 35 if they face other serious health problems because of being overweight such as hypertension, sleep apnea, and type 2 diabetes.
  • These are considered for adults with a BMI of more than 50 when other conservative treatment options like diet control and exercise have failed to help them lose weight.

The complications include stomach pain, pain and discomfort while eating or sleeping, and regaining the weight loss due to the Bariatric Surgery procedure.
