When speaking and thinking about obesity surgery, first of all the most important is getting into the world of an overweight person. It should be understood that every day life of people with a disease graded obesity is full of problems due to lack of self-confidence such as in clothing or doing social activities that brings emotional difficulties too.
Most obesity patients have been working hard for years to lose weight. Many patients experience emotional waves in lives during their slimming process , in which they lose-regain weight and the same all over again known as yo-yo effect.
Although it is possible to lose some kilos with a diet and exercise therapies for a while, the rate of permanent slimming is unfortunately below 5%. In the meantime, life becomes a struggle for losing weight and the comfort of daily life becomes deteriorating.
When excess weight is 20-30 kilograms more, it becomes quite difficult to exercise enough. Losing weight only by dieting becomes almost impossible at that state.
The final individual`s outcome is to be condemned to one of the few lifestyles often encountered; either to live with miraculous hopes of slimming down, or to turn the back around showing indifference to the difficulty of social cohesion and increased risk of illness. It maybe be caused by a deep inner feeling of resentment.
In this case, a radical intervention from outside is necessary.
On the other hand, when the body mass index exceeds 35, obesity gradually becomes a problem that threatens physical health by gradually exceeding the matter of being an aesthetic problem. This state brings many diseases along, such as: blood pressure, type II diabetes, breathing breaks during sleep, joint damage etc.
The risk of developing type 2 diabetes in obese people is about 4 times higher than in people of normal weight. Large waist circumference - 88 cm in women and 102 cm in men - is a significant risk factor for cardiovascular diseases. These problems are greatly improved in patients who undergo obesity surgery.
Although some patients are aware of being obese, they still believe that they will live a normal life like everyone else. However, it is medically proven that obesity shortens the expected life span and that it is a serious disease that must be treated appropriately. The mortality rate in people diagnosed with obesity neglecting their desease and staying resentent to treatments is 3 times higher than in normal-weight people at the same age.
To what extend can obesity shorten the life span?
Medical records show that patients who have undergone a surgery and got over obesity associated with weight-loss, on average live ten years longer than those who do not wish to undergo a surgery and continue with their lives as obese diagnosed.
The results of the surgeries aimed to eliminate obesity will not be visible only in cutting down weight. Maintaining individual's spiritual, physical and social well-being is essential too. The surgery will change the person's lifestyle completely within months and will give him\her a chance to open a totally new page in life.
