Medical science witnessed some drastic changes in the recent past and complex surgeries are performed quite easily. To handle the problem of obesity, some patients opt for Bariatric surgery. Doctors should give the patients a clear idea about the risks involved and they should be ready to bring permanent changes in their lifestyle. The body weight decreases significantly after the operation and patients can resume their normal lifestyle in 1-2 weeks. A recent study indicates that some patients may experience 5% weight gain two years after the operation. The obesity rate is quite high among youth and they too are treated with Bariatric Surgery.

This is not a permanent solution though and surgery is not suitable for everyone.
