Some obese people have tried so many diets and different lifestyles, but they couldn't achieve what they want, and they dream of having a healthy, thin and beautiful body shape. Bariatric surgery is considered for people who are not able to control obesity by changing their lifestyle. Gastric band can be a safe surgery with minimum scars and changeable results for these people. The recovery process of this surgery is usually fast and the results of weight loss often last for life time which improve patient’s life quality. This surgery does not affect absorption or digestion just reduces the amount of food patients are taking during day. It also lowers the diabetes and hypertension risks.
The bariatric surgeon may recommend a pre-operative diet of two weeks before the surgery which has protein but carbohydrates and fat limitations. This diet makes body ready for the surgery. Patients should tell the surgeon their complete medical history and medicines and supplements intake, he or she asks for laboratory tests to check body health completely. It is important to know that patients should try to stop smoking for better outcomes and they should stop smoking at least 30 days before surgery.
