Obesity is the second leading cause of preventable deaths in America. Often obesity leads to health problems such as diabetes and heart disease.

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.

So it's not a joke!.

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. Although this method too limits the amount of food that can be taken up by the body, the procedure is reversible upon request of the patient. 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.
