Hi there...I can understand your concern. Surgeries like beriatric surgery may look simple. But they are very complex. They have a lot of complications involved. And the rehabilitation process is also very complicated. It will make your life miserable at times. So please discuss in detail with your plastic surgeon about the procedure, complications which can be even fatal, and it's prognosis. Also you are still young. First try the Conservative measures like diet and exercise. First and foremost you must understand losing your weight is a very gradual process. You should have strong determination and patience if you want to lose weight. And it cannot happen suddenly. Losing too much suddenly is also not good for health. You have to follow a strict diet and exercise schedule. Regarding diet - have small multiple meals instead of 3 big meals, eat food rich in proteins and fibres like egg white boiled chicken vegetables fruits pulses, avoid carbohydrate rich foods like rice curds oily foods sweets ghee and other junk food. Regarding exercises - start slowly with brisk walking, then change over to jogging, running and other abdominal exercises. Never over strain yourself. And always keep yourself well hydrated and enjoy whatever you do. Also consult a dietician at any hospital who will be able to give you a proper chart regarding the same
