Researchers have been studying this procedure over the last years in order to see if it is both safe and effective. Their studies have shown that weight loss surgery is more effective than diets and sometimes it is the only answer for obese people.
Doctors also explained why diets don’t work for some people. They mentioned that these people don’t lack willpower. The reason for which some people can lose weight is that their systems are used to diets and they don’t work on them anymore. The doctors mentioned that this is the case for people who have lost a lot of weight over the years and gained it back.
When they gained back the weight, the doctors recommend the weight loss surgery as the last resort. Specialists mentioned that weight loss surgery has long-lasting benefits compared to diets which usually have short-term benefits.
Studies have shown that people who underwent this type of surgery had a lot of benefits including the normalization of blood pressure, blood lipid levels, and blood sugar. Usually, people who are obese have high levels of blood lipid and blood sugar and this is why they need to lose weight fast.
