Obesity is defined as a condition of having an excessive amounts of fat in the human body, to such extent that it may negatively affect the health of the individual and his daily activites. This leads to increased health abnormalities and decreased life expectancy. An obese individual may face greater chances of heart conditions, obstructive sleep apnea, type 2 diabetes, and certain types of cancer.

As per National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey of 2010, there are 2 out of 3 adult individuals in the country that are revealed to be obese. This was also categorized by the American Medical Association in 2013 as a chronic condition. Doctors know that some people cannot remove the excess fats with diet and more exercise, so the best choice for them is to go through surgery when all other methods have been futile. New Jersey bariatric surgery recommends that this operation should only be done for patients whose BMI reaches 35 up to 40 without any comorbidities or a BMI of 30 up to 35 for those who have comorbidities.

In ancient times, and still in some parts of the globe, obesity has been the symbol for fertility and wealth. But this belief shifted in the modern world where it became stigmatized. After it was considered as a chronic disease, the European Court of Justice declared morbid obesity to be a disability. It would be deemed discriminatory if employers fire out obese individuals simply because they think these people cannot engage completely in their professional lives.

Weight increase occurs if the body has an imbalance in its energy or the level of calorie that is taken in is greater than the amount removed or metabolized. Genetic makeup, eating habit, culture, geography, lifestyle, income, and emotions can result to an energy imbalance which leads to weight increase. The most widely practiced solution is to limit excessive eating habit and increase exercise.

In some cases, this condition can be genetic and an unhealthy diet and lack of exercise will only make it worse. Bariatic surgery is an effective method to achieving long term weight loss especially in Englewood, NJ, where obesity is also prevalent. This gives patients the help they need in the most painless, fastest, and safest way.

Doctors always remind patients that surgery is a big and serious decision to make. They educate them about the surgery, the risks, the benefits, and the possible effects of the treatment. Physicians also instruct them on what to expect regarding post operative changes.

This procedure has three types and one of the techniques is the reduction of the stomach size by using a demountable gastric band or Lap Band. Next type is the removal of a part of the stomach called a gastric bypass. Last would be when the surgeon redirects the small intestines to a little stomach bag known as Laparoscopic Roux en Y.

Producing and maintaining weight loss has no definite practice. After an operation, some patients would feel that they still have not reached their desired goals, while some regained over time. The amount regained may vary widely depending on the level of obesity and the kind of surgery.

Success is achievable if the affected individuals commit to a life of healthy living. They need to prioritize their health by eating right, doing proper exercises, and routinely do a medical checkup all their lives. They can certainly depend on their healthcare experts to assist them into adjusting to the changes so the transformation would be more rewarding and lasting.
