 Surgical Vs Non-Surgical Procedures to Help Lose Weight

India is struggling with high stress levels, insomnia, and serious health issues like obesity, hypertension, blood pressure and diabetes. Crazy work schedules, unhealthy diet, zero physical activity and exposure to adulterants, pollution, and digital strain is deteriorating the health to a great extent.

Being the first sign of degraded health, obesity is gradually spreading like an epidemic among Indian men and women. The issue starts with a rapid increase in the weight and gradually leads to more serious complications and life-threatening diseases like heart diseases, cancer or coronary stroke. As per a study published in British Medical Journal, in 2014, in India, approximately 20 million women were obese as compared to 9.8 million men.


An additional four million women were observed to have severe obesity. The figures are striking and need immediate attention on the treatment aspect. Dr. Sandeep Singla, Plastic Surgeon at Rejuva Venus Clinic said, "With state-of-the-art technology and efficient medical procedures, the problem of obesity now has an effective treatment. After failed attempts to lose weight, a lot of people are now switching on to various surgical and nonsurgical solutions to lose excessive weight. Factors like increased awareness, easy access to hi-end medical treatment and efficient medical professionals have added value and credibility to the non-invasive and surgical procedures."

A weight loss surgery is a medical procedure that eliminates the excess fat from the body using an implanted medical device or by removing the portion of the problem area, for example, stomach or by rerouting small intestines into a stomach pouch. An ideal candidate for weight loss surgery are people who are 'morbidly obese' i.e. people who weigh more than 100 pounds (man) or 80 pounds (woman) and have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of more than 40. Apart from weight, factors like age, medical history, addictions etc. play an important role in deciding whether a person is an ideal candidate for this surgery.

Dr. Singla comes forth with the idea of different types of weight loss surgeries. While some restrict the food intake, other affects the process of digestions and absorption of nutrients. Some of the popular surgical weight loss procedures are restrictive surgery, malabsorptive surgery, laparoscopic gastric banding, biliopancreatic diversion (BPD), roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RGB), vertical banded gastroplasty (VBG) and sleeve gastrectomy. Although the procedures are highly effective, people are a little skeptical about opting these hi-end procedures because of the cost, safety, side-effects and on the after-effects on the external skin.

Since people look out for real results, quick recovery, and simple procedure which is reversible and affordable, non-invasive procedures are ideal. Venus Freeze by Venus Concept is one of the effective anti-ageing and cellulite reduction treatments that is powered with Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Pulse Magnetic Fields (MP)2. It targets the face, neck, and body and effectively reduces cellulite, tightens skin and performs body contouring. The benefits include no pain, no downtime, quick treatment, homogeneous heating to multiple tissues, effective on all skin types and a proven result.

The procedure leads to non-surgical body contouring, cellulite reduction, wrinkle reduction, circumferential reduction and skin tightening. Various medical clinics, hospitals, and wellness centers offer a wide gamut of non-invasive weight reduction treatments that work wonders on the body. Depending upon the condition, you can opt for the best treatment weight loss treatment. Aftercare is as important as pre-surgery care. It is advised that one should have small, frequent meals. A strict diet and plenty of water, preferably 30 minutes before every meal is the golden rule.
