How to cure obesity?

Lifestyle modification is of prime importance in weight reduction or obesity treatments. This includes modification in dietary habits and exercise regime which shows how to cure obesity.

Diet

Exercise

Drugs

Certain drugs cause loss of appetite like sibutramine and thus act by decreasing the energy intake. Other drugs like Orlistat act by decreasing fat absorption. However, all drugs are associated with side effects such as nausea, bloating, oily stools etc. Drugs however induce a weight loss of only 10% of excess weight and may not be the answer for patients requiring large amounts of weight loss and obesity treatments.

Surgery

Patients with morbid obesity do not respond to medical means of weight loss. Efforts to morbid obesity treatments through controlled diet, behavior modification and exercise program are only temporarily successful with patient invariably regaining weight even more than the amount lost. Obesity surgery is the only method by which long term weight loss can be achieved in these patients.

Open or laparoscopic surgery

Laparoscopic surgery is a minimally invasive approach to surgery. Several small incisions (1/2 – 1 inch long) are made in the abdominal wall, through which are inserted tubes that allow the passage of the surgical instruments needed for the operation. A small camera is inserted into the abdomen, and the surgeon operates by watching his activities on a video monitor. This provides better visualisation and better access to important anatomical structures. To enhance his vision, your abdomen in inflated with absorbable gas.

Compared to open surgery, benefits of laparoscopic surgery include :

  • Less post-operative pain
  • Better cosmetic results
  • Fewer wound infections
  • Fewer incisional hernias
  • Faster recovery and return to pre-surgical levels of activity
