Weight Loss with Gastric Band Surgery
The Telegraph published an article in 2012 stating that obesity is killing three times as many people worldwide than malnutrition.
Gastric surgery for weight loss has become more and more in demand over the past few years as the obesity epidemic has increased to literally massive proportions. Queries on the main search engines for keywords such as alternative to bariatric surgery, alternative to gastric bypass surgery and bariatric surgery alternative are now the most used terms in both the Us and the UK markets.
Just how much weight loss with gastric band surgery is to be expected?
According to statistics quoted on the Obesity Action Coalition website, gastric band patients on average only lose around 50% of their excess weight. Results for those seeking an alternative to bariatric surgery, or an alternative to gastric bypass surgery obtain similar long term results. So, basically, if you currently weigh 250 pounds and your ideal weight is 150 pounds, (making you 100 pounds overweight), then you would, realistically, only expect to lose around 50 pounds after the gastric band surgical procedure, which means that you would actually still be 50 pounds overweight! There are many alternatives to weight loss gastric band surgery and the more general bariatric surgery alternative that can produce fantastic results without the side effects.
How many overweight people would be really happy to put themselves through the invasive gastric band or gastric sleeve surgical procedure and only achieve a surgical outcome of 50% of their excess weight? The far more invasive bypass procedure has a higher success rate, (70% of excess weight), but the gastric bypass surgery cost is also far more, both financially and in terms of risk. There are now an increasing number of alternatives to bariatric surgery for those prepared to do just a little more research, many providing comparable results, with zero risks and of course at a fraction of the cost.
Patients often resort to invasive weight loss surgery after many failed attempts to lose weight and keep it off, simply by dieting alone. Gastric surgery or the alternative to gastric bypass surgery for weight loss is seen as the ultimate, permanent, weight loss solution, but sadly that is often not always the case.
Amanda Thomson found out the hard way that complications surrounding weight loss with gastric band surgery can be potentially life-threatening. Her surgical gastric band experience was featured in the Daily Mirror newspaper.
