So, we make an effort to address some of the popular myths on Weight Loss Surgery, Punjab India.

Myth: People who undergo bariatric surgery regain weight later

Truth: Let’s talk straight on it, patients might gain around 5 percent of weight following the surgery, but that is divided in many years’ time. Though, long term studies and research have supported the fact that most bariatric surgery patients are able to successfully maintain their weight over a period of time.

A Swedish study was conducted in the same regard which compared obese people who had undergone surgery with the ones who controlled weight by diet and exercise only. Post 20 years, the ones who had surgery had lost comparatively more weight and were also able to maintain it better than their counterparts.

Myth: Surgery is an easy way out, little exercise and good diet will work too.

Truth: Majority of patients take the course of Bariatric Surgery, Punjab India after their multiple failed attempts at diet, exercise and random medications to loose or control their weight since many years. If one is 10-15 kilograms overweight then, many doctors believe that a proper and guided diet and exercise can work but once the threshold of 23-27 kilograms of being overweight is crossed, then chances of failure are much more when one tries to achieve weight loss just diet and exercise alone.
