Why do experiences of obesity surgery vary from person to person?
Obesity surgery can be performed for anyone between the ages of 18-65, with a body mass index of 35 and above, who does not have any discomfort that will prevent him from undergoing surgery.
Surgery for patients under the age of 18 is performed very rarely and the approval of the parents is obtained first. If the patient has any psychological problems or alcohol addiction that may interfere with the operation, the approval of the operation is obtained from the relevant branch doctors and the operation is performed.
Obesity surgery results can be different for everyone. Factors such as the patient’s body structure, existing diseases, nutritional habits, age, gender, height and weight affect the outcome of the surgery.
So everyone can have different results. While the success rate for one patient is 100%, the same surgery may have a lower success rate in the other patient.
There is a belief that anyone who is overweight can have obesity surgery. For example, a person with an excess of 20 pounds may want to have obesity surgery to achieve their ideal weight.
But obesity surgery is not performed for cosmetic purposes, but for people to live a healthy life, so it is not applied to every overweight person.
According to the criteria reported by the World Health Organization; body mass index (BMI) 40 kg/m2 in excess of, or 35-40 kg/m2 with diabetes, hypertension and sleep apnea diseases such as accompanying persons is regarded as the candidate.
In addition, people are undergoing a very detailed examination to determine the underlying factors of the obesity problem and to get an idea of their eating habits and psychological status.
There are several types of surgery for obesity. Sleeve gastrectomy, gastric bypass, adjustable gastric band are the most common of these types of surgery. Although the patient’s preference is taken into account, experts decide which method to apply after many evaluations.
Because the most fundamental factor in the success of the operation is to apply the correct method to the patient. Otherwise, sufficient success may not be achieved. You shouldn’t think of obesity surgery as a magic wand.
Surgery is performed to support people who have difficulty losing weight despite diet and sports or who cannot even move due to severe obesity. Therefore, after surgery, it is very important that patients acquire a healthy eating habit and exercise regularly.
After surgery, patients can give 40 percent of their excess weight within 6 months and 75-90 percent within 2 years when they follow the diet and exercise program recommended by experts.
