Times are changing and in today’s era, everyone wants a quick fix for everything because who would want to wait? Quite similar is the case when it comes to losing weight; everyone wants a quick and easy solution and honestly, nobody wants to work hard to get the perfect body for which the obsession takes you to such an extent that even huge sums of money from your Abba jaan’s bank account would mean no big deal if spent on some dieting pills. Another common ‘trend’ in the weight loss game among the desi community in Pakistan these days is the gastric bypass surgery that everyone’s going crazy saving money for.
While a few cases might get this done because of health risks that obesity is resulting in, a majority of young people would get it done just for the sake of eating less and getting the Katrina Kaif body instantly.
What Is It About?
If you are one of those few individuals who yet doesn’t know what this medical procedure does to you, you should know that it is more of a biological and less of a cosmetic surgery. It’s nothing like liposuction or anything else of that sort you might have heard about. In a gastric bypass surgery, what they do is that they seal off a great portion of your stomach, leaving you with a tiny portion that is functional. So apparently, you would then have a smaller stomach and your body would have to deal less with food. Another part of this, which is the actual bypass procedure, includes your small intestine being connected to the tiny portion of the stomach so that the food is directly carried out into the intestine and lesser calories are absorbed. It’s almost a 3 to 4-hour surgery.
Is It Worth The Money?
Well, they say if you control the portions of your diet and inculcate regular exercise into your diet you are more likely to benefit from the surgery and are bound to lose weight. However, this is where the question arises: If you really are supposed to still monitor your diet and workout, you can do so without the surgery too, no? The entire surgery is supposed to change the way your body processes and digests food. Therefore, the cons of it are hard to ignore. Your body is at risk of gastritis, which causes inflammation of the stomach lining and there can also be injuries and scarring caused during the procedure that may lead to problems in the bowel in future. Also, this changes your eating routine completely and therefore it takes quite a while for you to understand how much you are supposed to consume that the stomach is able to store, otherwise you may end up vomiting.
The Choice Is Yours
While many individuals who are diabetics or suffering from high blood pressure and increased levels of cholesterol might see an improved body functioning after the bypass surgery, it really is for you to decide whether or not you would choose this over risk-free alternatives. There are methods that are safe from side effects and require the same amount of effort you would require to put in after the surgery, maybe even less.
