Obesity is the second leading cause of preventable deaths in America. The most related illnesses to obesity are diabetes and heart diasease. The aim of obesity surgery, also known as weight loss surgery or bariatric surgery is to limit the amount of your food intake. Although there are a number of surgeries that can be carried out, the most famous ones are gastric bypass surgery and stomach banding.

Gastric bypass surgery, one form of obesity surgery, is a fast way to lose weight and is mostly recommended for patients who have a risk of suffering from heart damage or other serious health problems. It is however, only a few people that can undergo this form of surgery, after a screening process carried out by specialists, as it is very risky. Certain conditions will have to be met before the surgery to ensure that the patient is in proper psychological and medical state to carry out the surgery. It reduces the amount of calories that can be absorbed by the person, thereby limiting the amount of food a person can eat as the stomach will only be able to hold very little.

Another method of obesity surgery you could consider, which is safer, but nevertheless gives good results is the adjustable stomach band which is implanted in the stomach usually by laparoscopic surgery. It can be reversed by surgeons if necessary. This method too, limits the amount of food that can be consumed. This is best for children. Side-effects such as nausea or abdominal pain can be suffered by the patient following the implanting of the band.

You should consider obesity surgery if you ve tried unsuccessfully to shed pounds by exercising and by trying out various diets. It is recommended that you consider surgery if you are 100 pounds over your ideal weight and if you have a Body Mass Index (BMI) over 40.

In order to keep the weight off of you after obesity surgery would have to change your lifestyle so that you would not fall back into gaining weight. This would mean that you have to keep exercising and maintaining your diet.

Here are a few points to notes before obesity surgery. Ensure that you are financially ready as you may have to visit your doctor for several follow-up appointments and even before the surgery and insurance may not cover all costs. Also remember that due to the lifestyle changes one would have to undergo, this could lead to stress and other psychological problems for a few months after the obesity surgery. You should remember, however, that the surgery does have it risks and side effects. Risks may include infections and hernias.

    The actual gastric band operation involves major surgery and is a very drastic option for any individual to take. The VIRTUAL gastric band offers an effective alternative which involves ZERO risk, it doesn't require a person to change to a liquidized diet and requires no invasive surgery.

    The VIRTUAL gastric band uses the power of the mind - Sheila Granger from Beverley, East Yorkshire, England, can hypnotise a person so that the subconcious believes the stomach is the size of a golf ball, therefore allowing a person to consume less food before it feels full - ensuring weight loss at gradual rate allowing and improving skins elasticity. The only thing a person has to lose with the VIRTUAL GASTRIC BAND is their excess weight!

    Contacting Sheila Granger, hypnotist, could be the best thing you ever did and at approximately £300 it is considerably cheaper that a £10,000 surgical operation.
