Bariatric surgery is the name given to medical interventions to help patients lose weight. Surgical treatment methods are the most effective methods in obesity treatment. However, the patient's attitude is of great importance in surgical treatment. Following a surgical intervention, a regular diet should be switched to and maintained. If the patient has a body mass index of 35 or above, surgical treatment is recommended.
Closed (laparoscopic) interventions are performed in obesity surgery. There are two types of surgical procedures. In some patients, volume reduction procedures are performed. The basis of these procedures is the intake of fat from the body. Another option is the disturbance of the absorption system. In this type of surgical operations, it is aimed to reduce the absorption of nutrients in the body and thus to prevent weight gain.
