6 The risks and benefits involved Surgery isn t a quick and easy answer to weight loss and it does involve some risk. The most effective procedures are major operations that change the way your digestive system works. Sometimes further surgery is needed. Your consultant surgeon will be able to advise you on the specific risks and benefits involved with each procedure. Overall, the risks from surgery are thought to be outweighed by the benefits 2. Research has shown that people have an improved quality of life and reduced risk from medical conditions that are related to morbid obesity. Is surgery the right solution for you? Your consultant will discuss all the options with you. Weight loss surgery may be a solution for you if: your weight is putting your health at serious risk. This is known as morbid obesity and corresponds to a body mass index (BMI) of 40kg/m 2 or you have a BMI of kg/m 2 and a medical condition that could be improved by losing weight and if you have tried losing weight in other ways you are aged 18 or over you are fit enough to undergo surgery and an anaesthetic there are no specific medical or psychological reasons why you shouldn t have this type of surgery you understand that you ll need ongoing follow-up care from healthcare professionals. 2. Guidance on the use of surgery to aid weight reduction for people with morbid obesity. National Institute for Clinical Excellence, London: Section 4.1.5

7 How to work out your body mass index Use Spire Healthcare s online calculator Or divide your weight by your height once, then divide that by your height again. For instance, let s say you weigh 120kg and are 1.7m tall: 120 divided by 1.7 = divided by 1.7 = Therefore your BMI = kg/m 2 BMI ranges are as follows: Underweight 18.5 kg/m 2 (or less) Healthy kg/m 2 Overweight kg/m 2 Obese kg/m 2 Morbidly obese: over 40 kg/m 2 or over 35 kg/m 2 with obesity-related medical conditions Weight loss surgery 7

10 Preliminary procedures 1 Drug therapy There are two types of anti-obesity drugs, one aims to decrease your appetite and the other works by reducing the absorption of fat in the intestine. It s worth noting that these medicines have risks, so you ll need to consider the options carefully. Your consultant will be able to advise you on the risks and benefits of these medicines. Your weight loss will also need to be monitored regularly, ideally by a dietician. 2 Gastric balloon insertion This is a temporary measure which can help bring your weight down before you go on to weight loss surgery. Using an endoscope (a thin, flexible telescope via your mouth), a balloon is inserted into your stomach under sedation. The balloon is then filled with liquid or air to partially fill the stomach and create a feeling of fullness. This is a relatively minor procedure, but it may take your stomach a little while to get used to the balloon. The balloon is not usually left in for longer than six months and your consultant may advise a low fat diet or drug therapy at the same time.

11 Permanent procedures 3 Adjustable gastric banding Gastric banding restricts the amount of food your stomach can hold. Your consultant usually uses keyhole surgery to place an adjustable band around the upper part of your stomach. The band will need to be adjusted by injecting fluid into it after surgery. Because there s no cutting or stapling, gastric banding is a less serious operation than gastric bypass, so you recover from it more quickly. 4 Gastric bypass This is a more complex type of surgery. It both restricts the amount of food you can eat making you feel full with a small meal, and reduces the amount of food your body can digest and absorb. It can be performed by open or keyhole surgery. Usually you will need to take a permanent course of supplements, vitamins and anti-ulcer medicine after this, on a long-term basis. A gastric bypass is a major procedure and does involve a risk of complications. You may also experience unpleasant side-effects, which you can discuss with your consultant. However, the overall risks from surgery are thought to be surpassed by the benefits of losing excess weight. 5 Duodenal Switch In the first stage of a Duodenal Switch, about three quarters of the stomach is removed in a procedure known as a sleeve gastrectomy. However, much of the normal working of the stomach, although smaller than before, is maintained. Most of the small intestine (the duodenum) is bypassed so that your body has less time to absorb any food. This procedure separates food from bile and other digestive juices, and reduces the size of the stomach to make you feel full sooner than usual. The complications are similar to those of a gastric bypass. Likewise, post-operation you will require long term follow-up care, a diet change and food supplements. Weight loss surgery 11
