What Exactly Is Bariatric Surgery?
Bariatric surgery is the next progression for people who are severely obese and have a disease linked with obesity, who stayed obese after trying all the methods for weight-loss other than surgery. Bariatric surgery causes weight loss by restricting the amount of food the stomach can hold. Most weight loss surgeries today are performed using minimally invasive techniques such as laparoscopic surgery. The most common bariatric surgery procedures in Singapore are gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, adjustable gastric band, and biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch. Each surgery has its own advantages and disadvantages.
