8 Health Benefits of Weight Loss Surgery

Weight loss surgery is a great way for some people to change their lives. Bariatric surgery ensures sustainable weight loss and helps achieve a lot of health goals. Weight loss surgery limits the capacity of your stomach and helps reduce your calorie intake, resulting in weight loss. After bariatric surgery, you’ll be required to ditch unhealthy foods from your diet. This will also help you lose weight and improve overall health.

Below are 8 positive changes you can expect after a weight loss surgery.

1. Long-term weight loss

Many people with obesity who try to lose weight with the help of strict diets, regain even more weight over time. Unlike diets, weight loss surgery helps you lose excess weight and keep the weight off over a 10 year period. If your goal is long-term weight loss and maintenance, then bariatric surgery may be right for you.

2. Improve your heart health

Obesity is often associated with high levels of cholesterol, blood sugar, and fat accumulation in the arteries. This increases your risk of heart and cardiovascular problems like high blood pressure, stroke, or heart attack. Excess fat accumulation makes it harder for your heart to supply all your body organs with blood. This can deplete them of oxygen and nutrients, leaving you exhausted. 

Weight loss surgery helps improve the lifestyle and lower weight. Losing excess pounds reduces your risk of dying from stroke and myocardial infarction. Besides, your blood pressure and cholesterol levels can return to normal, almost healthy levels. 

3. Type 2 diabetes remission

Bariatric surgery can help reverse type 2 diabetes. After bariatric surgery, you significantly decrease the intake of sugars. This helps improve control over your blood sugar levels. In some cases, after bariatric surgery, a patient remains free of insulin and other related medications. This will take about 2-3 years for you to normalize your blood sugar, but the result is worth the time and effort.

4. Increase chances of getting pregnant

Many women with obesity face fertility issues. Obesity often disrupts the levels of hormones and interferes with ovulation. This process is crucial to conceive a child. But losing weight through bariatric surgery can improve your fertility and increase your chances of getting pregnant. If you have fertility problems, make an appointment with the best weight loss surgeon to discuss bariatric surgery.

5. Helps relieve depression

Many people with obesity feel depressed because of their weight and poor body image. Associated with depression are painful health conditions that can further aggravate depression symptoms. Losing weight through bariatric surgery helps relieve depression symptoms and improve self-confidence significantly. 

6. Ease joint pain

Most people with obesity have joint problems. Excess pounds add pressure on your joints and make them wear down faster. This can put you at risk of osteoarthritis. Besides, excessive fat in the body causes inflammation and makes you prone to the development of rheumatoid arthritis. Both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis cause joint pain. Losing excess weight reduces pressure on your joints and helps relieve pain. 

7. Treats sleep apnea

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that disrupts breathing during the night’s sleep. While everyone can get this condition, people with obesity are more prone to sleep apnea because of excessive fat in the neck area. Fat narrows your airways and makes it difficult to breathe. Besides, sleep apnea increases your risk of serious health problems like heart disease. Losing weight can treat sleep apnea and lower the risk of related health conditions. 

8. Improve sexual function

Obesity is linked to a number of sexual problems like poor sexual desire, erectile dysfunction, insecurity, and difficulty reaching orgasms. Weight loss through bariatric surgery helps increase libido, improve sexual function, and overall sexual performance.
