Obesity causes difficulties in health, such as diabetes, hypertension, cancer, etc. The Bariatric Surgery, like any other, also entails certain risks and complications, but the risk of obesity is much greater than the risk of Bariatric Surgery. In a support group at the Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan, Lori Silverman announced that in the past seven months he has lost 48 kgs. Mrs. Silverman, 42 years old, weighed 138 kgs and expects to reach the 54 kg of weight. One by one, other members of the support group were similar victories: 64 kgs in 3 months, 39 in 3 months, etc. Many kilos less, more applause, more porras; testimonies from people who, thanks to the treatment for losing weight, no longer need medications for diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart complications, arthritis or gout.

Some have been able, after several years, fit into the film or aircraft seats, Crouch and put on their own shoes. All these successes are not due to any diet. These people, who previously had morbid obesity, have tried and failed with all diets that have been invented so far. The extraordinary transformations in the lives of these people were due to the surgery, but not liposuction, which removes only some kilos, but bypass surgery gastric in which most of the stomach is cut to achieve a decrease in the amount of food that can be eaten, and that rearranges the small intestine to reduce the amount of calories that your body can absorb. The surgery, which can be done in different ways, is known as Bariatric Surgery, a term that means treatment of overweight. This procedure, which increasingly becomes more popular, reflects the increase in obesity and the failure of diets, exercise and medications for weight loss. In 1990, 44 per cent of Americans were overweight, now, more than half of Americans suffers from it.
