A gastric bypass in Pattaya could be an option for you if you are suffering with obesity.
You may have tried various weight loss methods, but have been unsuccessful in the long run, inevitably putting on even more weight after losing it and ending up heavier than before. Carrying so much excess weight makes exercising difficult, and often leads to emotional and psychological problems apart from physical ones.
Obesity can result in
If you are at a crossroads and traditional weight loss methods have not worked for you, you should seriously consider gastric bypass surgery.
Gastric bypass surgery for weight loss alone is not covered by medical insurance, unless your doctor can show that you have serious health problems due to obesity. Even then, insurance companies may not cover the entire expense. As such, it becomes an expensive proposition when you have to pay on your own.

Gastric bypass surgery is bariatric surgery – one of the many ways that surgery helps you lose weight. In this type of surgery, the surgeon makes a small pouch in your stomach, stapling part of the stomach. This pouch is connected directly to the intestine. This can be done via open surgery or using the laproscopic method (Roux en Y gastric bypass), which is easier and involves a shorter recovery time. Open surgery actually removes part of the stomach, instead of making it smaller. The surgery takes two to four hours and is performed under general anesthesia.
You will need to stay in hospital for two to three days. Recovery time will start at two weeks and may be more if you have open surgery. On the positive side, you will lose 60 to 80 percent excess weight in a year or more and this depends on your diet post surgery and your initial weight.
As stomach size shrinks after surgery, you eat less and the weight drops off, without your feeling hungry. It is also important to follow the medical advice regarding your diet and food habits and take vitamin and mineral supplements as advised. Gastric bypass surgery means that you will be able to eat very little at a time, so you need to have small and frequent meals that provide you good nutrition.
