For many years, obesity surgery was looked down upon by society at large. The conventional wisdom was this: people who opt for obesity surgery are just looking for the easy way out. There was an underlying assumption that if you were considering obesity surgery, you had never bothered to give diet and exercise a try. Today, however, as more people speak out about their experiences, and bariatric surgery becomes a more common alternative suggested by doctors to their patients, the nation at large is taking a long, hard second look at these procedures. The fact is, bariatric surgery can offer tremendous weight loss results. On top of that, recent studies have shown such surgical procedures to have just as much of an effect, if not more, on co-morbidities like hypertension and Type 2 diabetes as traditional treatment methods.
