What is Bariatric Surgery? 

Weight Loss Surgery Center: 469.814.5677

Bariatric surgery, also called weight loss surgery, helps obese patients lose weight through two primary techniques:

  • Limiting food intake
  • Limiting calorie absorption 

Most often, bariatric surgery decreases the stomach’s size or capacity, limiting the amount of food they can comfortably eat. By feeling full sooner, many patients experience significant weight loss. 

Bariatric surgery is a serious procedure that requires lifelong changes in how you eat, as well as an ongoing dedication to healthy diet and physical activity. With a commitment to treatment and long-term follow-up care, bariatric surgery can help you rediscover better health. 

Bariatric surgeons on the Baylor Plano medical staff perform several safe, effective types of weight loss surgery.
