Our Recent FAQ's

Weight loss surgeries or gastric bypass surgeries collectively known as Bariatric surgery. Doctors opt for bariatric surgery when an individual is obese, have some serious health issues like type-2 diabetes and diet or exercise haven’tworked. Bariatric surgery is done by the surgeons to make some changes to an individual’s digestive system so that they can lose weight by reducing the size of stomach which limits the food intake.

There are multiple types of bariatric surgeries like Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass,  Revisional Surgery, Duodenal Jejunal Bypass with Sleeve Gastrectomy,  Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding, Sleeve Gastrectomy, and Revisional Surgery. Doctors choose any one of the above mentioned surgery for their patients based on their medical history, body type, weight, several blood tests and exams, etc.

People whose BMI is above 40 (Obese Class III) and People whose BMI is between 35-39 (Obese Class II) and have some serious health issues like apnea, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, etc. Normally doctors opt for the Bariatric surgery when the diet and exercise haven’t worked for them and they are extermly obese.

The recovery period varies from individual to individual and also what type of bariatric surgery you have gone through. Usually gastric banding surgery takes upto 1 week to recover  and few other surgeries takes 4 week. But in most cases the individual takes at least 1 month to recover.

Well it also depends on the type of surgery an individual is going through. The cost vary from type of surgery but the average cost of bariatric surgery in delhi and gurgaon lies between 3-4 lakh.
