The best way of loosing weight is by diet control and healthy life style. People should only consider having weight loss surgery if they have tried all other means to loose weight and have failed.
Surgery is not an easy option but it works. To get the best results from surgery it is extremely important that patients make the life style changes that is necessary and also follow the dietary advice.
The operations that are commonly performed to help patients to loose weight are Gastric Band, Gastric Bypass and Sleeve gastrectomy. Gastric band and Gastric Bypass operations have been in use for well over 20 years and have shown produced long term weight loss in many studies.
