To Go Under The Knife Or Not?

Genetics and lack of physical activity have a major impact on being overweight. And the journey towards weight loss can be tiring, depressing and filled with failed attempts.

Little wonder that the demand for weight loss operations has tripled since 2001. But remember, bariatric surgery is no quick fix; it requires major lifestyle changes and a lifelong follow-up.


Dr Manish Motwani, Bariatric Surgeon at Aastha Healthcare, explains, “It’s a purely restrictive operation that reduces the size of the gastric reservoir. To ensure that the surgery goes smooth, nutritionists, dieticians and surgeons go over every little detail of patient’s medical history along with their psychological status.”


Dr Motwani says, “In the past years, bariatric surgery has proved life-saving for many people including diabetics.”

Post-surgery, the patient leads a normal life but needs to maintain a disciplined lifestyle which includes exercise and diet plan with fruits and vegetables.


Dr Jayshree Todkar, Bariatric Surgeon, JT Obesity Solutions, Mumbai, says, “The advancements in the techniques of bariatric surgery have reduced the risks associated with the procedure. However, it is crucial to follow all the guidelines and protocols.” Despite the surgery, if the patient continues to lead his previous life with unhealthy dietary habits, he will gain weight, which will increase the complexities.”
