The journey to weight-loss through bariatric surgery

The decision to go under bariatric surgery isn’t an easy one. From diet attempts to make the decision to have surgery, people struggling with obesity have a long journey.

There are several factors to take into account when deciding about weight-loss surgery, and most of them are about the life after surgery. It is important to clarify all the outcomes of the surgery and how to sustain weight-loss long after the surgery.

Before attempting to have surgery, patients have to recognize they are overweight for a reason and that reason might not be clear or easy to find. Additionally several factors can influence the final outcome but the goal is to have long lasting results. When starting a weight-loss process, people have to set their mindset directed at how to maintain the weight-loss and not regain weight after bariatric surgery, since this is not a procedure that you want to repeat like you do with a diet.

Overweight is a struggle people from around the world have and there are many solutions for it. The long lasting solutions usually start with the right understanding of the origin of the struggle. Medical Port developed a weight-loss program dedicated to those who would like to assess the origin of the condition and learn the best techniques to overcome it, with the guidance of the best professionals in the field. One of the most recognized experts in weight-loss surgery in Portugal is Doctor Ângelo Ferreira, the coordinator of the Obesity Treatment Center of Hospital Lusíadas Lisboa. Here is what Doctor Ângelo Ferreira has to say about bariatric surgery:

“Bariatric Surgery comprises a variety of procedures. The main purpose of the surgery is to reduce the volume of the stomach or the quantity of the food absorbed in the bowel, in order to promote a significant long-term weight-loss. To achieve better results, the client should be self-motivated, psychologically prepared and at all times accompanied by a team of medical professionals. It is expected that the procedure allied with a dietary regime and physical exercise, improve overall health condition, life quality and self-esteem. A continuous follow-up is advisable at all times.”
