People are getting fatter by the day for a variety of reasons, including more sedentary jobs, a lack of exercise, a high diet of junk food, and genetic factors. Obesity causes a slew of health issues, including high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes. However, research has produced few techniques for reducing needless sugar and mineral intake. Bariatrics is the medical speciality concerned with the causes, prevention, and treatment of obesity. It focuses on reducing stomach size, which impacts appetite and food intake.

Procedures for Bariatric Surgery: Bariatric surgery in Malaysia can reduce up to 70% of body weight. The Bariatric surgeons in Malaysia are highly prepared with the most recent laparoscopic surgical technology for performing the Bariatric surgeons in Malaysia. In Malaysia, there are three types of bariatric surgery:

  • Gastric bypass surgery is performed by bariatric surgeons, who are also known as Roux-en-Y surgeons. In medical terms, gastric bypass is the division of the stomach into two pieces. By attaching the first section of the small intestine to it, a tiny stomach pouch is formed. This process avoids the stomach's acids and digestion enzymes, which are blended with the meal. The Gastric Bypass works by reducing the quantity of food that accumulates in the stomach since the food is now gathered in the stomach pouch. This method reduces appetite while also degrading the number of calories and nutrients in the body. The gut hormones are urged to suppress the appetite, which results in the use of energy stored in the body. This approach has a long-term impact, but the patient must take the required vitamins and minerals orally.
  • Gastrectomy with a Sleeve: Sleeve Gastrectomy is a treatment in which the stomach is divided into a little banana-shaped piece and the remaining huge bulk of stomach is removed. This approach operates in the same way as the Bypass method.
  • Gastric Banding: In this procedure, the band is connected to the top region of the stomach, like a little bag. The remaining stomach is left alone. Because the main stomach has been downsized to a little bag, food consumption has decreased while also satisfying hunger. There is a little gap between the pouch and the remainder of the stomach. The meal gradually enters the major stomach. This opening determines how satisfied you feel. The band is filled with sterile saline and its opening may be altered as a result. Because the procedure splits the stomach into two halves, the ingestion of unneeded calories is reduced. It can help you lose up to 50% of your weight.
