How it feels to be obese, only the person with obesity knows!

Who does not want to look smart and charming in today’s times? A slender and sleek physique not only makes one look smarter but adds to one’s personality and confidence also. But for an obese person all this seems impossible.

Obesity is not just a cosmetic consideration; it is a dire health dilemma directly harmful to one’s health. Obesity is associated with many diseases, particularly heart disease, diabetes, breathing difficulties during sleep, certain types of cancer, and osteoarthritis. It is a medical condition in which excess body fat has accumulated to the extent that it has an adverse effect on health, leading to reduced life expectancy. The efficiently designed weight reduction programs with Indicure are just the right option for the obese people.

These programs are specifically designed for people who are clinically obese. The clinical definition of obesity is a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher. The BMI is the body’s weight in kilograms divided by the square of the body’s height in meters.

The weight loss programs with Indicure comprise of comprehensive surgical techniques involving multiple specialties and services. These include laparoscopic weight loss procedures like Laparoscopic Gastric band surgery, Laparoscopic Gastric bypass surgery, Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, Endoscopic Intragastric Balloon Surgery amongst others.

Laparoscopic Gastric band surgery is a minimally invasive weight loss surgery in which a gastric band is inserted around the top of the stomach to reduce the volume of the stomach. When you eat satiety or fullness of stomach comes early and thus you would start eating less, which in turn leads to significant weight loss.

Laparoscopic Gastric bypass surgery allows food to bypass part of the small intestine by reducing the size of the stomach which makes you feel full more quickly than when your stomach was its original size. This helps in reducing the amount of food you eat and thus the calories consumed, which ultimately leads to weight loss.

The BIB (or Bioenterics Intragastric Baloon) System is a non-surgical, non-pharmaceutical aid in the treatment of obesity. In conjunction with a supervised diet and behaviour modification program, it can help you achieve the health and aesthetic benefits associated with weight loss

These programs have a very comprehensive protocol to help the patients reduce excess weight after the procedure. The patients achieve very satisfactory and significant weight loss from the beginning of the procedure.

The specialists at Indicure understand how daunting weight loss can seem and are there to support the patients at every step of the way. The program combines weight loss procedures with ongoing support. So the patients get a clear diet plan following surgery as well as specialist support from dieticians and counselors.
