What’s OBESITY ? Obesity is a condition in which excess body fat collects in the body to an extent that it affects the health adversely, resulting in a variety of health problems. Obesity is a complex and chronic disease with many causes, and not simply a result of overeating. Statistics has shown that genetics often plays a crucial role, particularly if one is morbidly obese. There are several criteria to determine morbid obesity. One criterion is being 50 to 100 percent more than the ideal body weight or being 100 pounds more than the ideal body weight. Another important criterion is the measure of one's Body Mass Index (BMI).

Slide 3

Bariatric Surgery (Weight Loss Surgery) is generally referred to as Weight Loss Surgery. When other fat reduction methods such as diet management and physical exercise are not effective, Bariatric Surgery (Weight Loss Surgery) is the best option to lose and manage weight in a planned manner. 'Bariatric Surgery (Weight Loss Surgery)' is a term used for all types of weight-loss surgeries. Bariatric Surgery (Weight Loss Surgery) is indicated in severely obese individuals who did not respond to non-surgical methods of weight loss. Bariatric Surgery (Weight Loss Surgery) is a treatment for those who fall in the following categories:-

Slide 4

Suffering from severe obesity (Class 3 obesity) - Mainly defined by a BMI of more than 40. Class 2 Obesity - Those who are having BMI between 35-40 but having other comorbid diseases like hypertension, diabetics etc Those belonging to class 1 obesity and have been trying to do weight control by conventional methods of dieting, exercise etc with no results and falls in the high-risk category for obesity-related conditions due to hereditary and other factors.

Slide 5

What are the Causes of Obesity? Medical The increased level of the hormone is responsible for insulin resistance and fat storage which is increasing appetite and causing weight gain. Certain prescription medications cause weight gain by slowing metabolic rate, increasing appetite and water retention in the body. Medical States such as hypothyroidism, PCOS, Cushing's disease and certain rare genetic diseases often lead to obesity.

Slide 6

Dietary Current generation is more inclined to fast foods, packaged foods and huge proportions which are more often than not because of misleading advertisements. The value of nutrition in daily diet has decreased while the overall intake of calories have increased, thanks to fast and packaged foods. Genetics Genetic factors cause obesity in 70 - 80% of cases. Genetics cause severe obesity, slow metabolisms and some genetic mutations. It has been observed that the food habits are also similar among family members who are playing a good role in obesity.

Slide 7

Environmental Our environment is not conducive with good food and lifestyle habits because of the dwindling number of walk paths and parks, packed work schedules, oversized portions in restaurants, expensive fresh produce and misleading food advertisements. Physical Low physical activity, excessive TV viewing and long hours on the computer makes a very sedentary lifestyle and leads to weight gain.

How bariatric surgery can be treated? The main and most common types of Bariatric Surgery (Weight Loss Surgery) procedures are : Gastric Binding Surgery Gastric Sleeve or Sleeve Gastrectomy Gastric Bypass Surgery Biliopancreatic Diversion Vertical Banded Gastroplasty

Slide 9

Gastric Binding Surgery Gastric Band Surgery is a Bariatric Surgery (Weight Loss Surgery) which is a restrictive procedure. During Bariatric Surgery (Weight Loss Surgery), the area of the stomach is reduced by placing a rubber inflatable band around the upper part of the stomach creating a small stomach pouch above the band and remaining stomach below the band. Gastric Band Surgery is a minimally invasive Bariatric Surgery (Weight Loss Surgery) and is considered the safest of the procedures.

Slide 10

Gastric Sleeve or Sleeve Gastrectomy Comparatively a new surgical procedure aimed at weight loss, the Gastric sleeve is a restrictive procedure where the size of the stomach is reduced to approximately 20 % of the original size. The stomach gets full quickly thus reducing the food intake and in turn body weight.

Slide 11

Gastric bypass surgery Gastric bypass surgery is a surgical procedure which is a combination of both restrictive procedure and mal absorption procedure. Here the stomach is restricted to much smaller size than the original by creating a pouch at the top of the stomach and separating it from the rest of the stomach. At the same time, the small intestine is first divided and reconnected to create a bypass to the full length of the intestine. The food from the new smaller stomach goes into the smaller part only which gets full quickly thus reducing the food intake and passes through the smaller bypass portion of the intestine only thereby reducing the absorption also. This, in turn, reduces the body weight.

Slide 12

Vertical Banded Gastroplasty The vertical banded gastroplasty or VBG is a restrictive gastric (stomach) bypass surgery for weight loss surgery. The vertical banded gastroplasty for weight loss, along with the gastric bypass surgery is one of the two major types of operations for the treatment of severe obesity. The goal of this procedure is to severely restrict the patient's capacity to eat certain foods. The general or bariatric surgeon uses sophisticated surgical staples to make a small stomach pouch. This reduces how much food the stomach can hold. When the amount of food the stomach can hold is reduced, an obese person feels full sooner. But at the same time, the stomach digests nutrients and calories in a normal anatomical way. This is another common way to reduce how much food the stomach can hold. Vertical banded gastroplasty has an advantage by limiting only the amount of the food meal, and not affecting the absorption process involved in digestion.
