How Dangerous Is Bariatric Surgery?

Bariatric surgery is a medical procedure that helps you lose excess weight by making changes to your digestive system. Most types of weight loss surgeries will  make your stomach smaller,  restricting the amount of food you eat and drink making you feel full sooner.

Potential risks of bariatric surgery are: dumping syndrome, kidney stones, not losing the desired amount of weight or weight regain. Most patients who undergo weight loss surgery and are fully commited to sustained weight loss see a great health improvement.
