In this age of super thin waifs and super slim models and actresses pouring out of all the magazines and posters - it is no wonder that if you do not fit this "ideal", then it's easy to feel left out, to feel as though you do not belong and to feel extra large in such a skinny world.

Its no wonder then that diet and different ways of slimming down are such big markets.
We all know at least one person that is on a diet, or thinking about going on a diet or has tried up and given up on yet another diet.
The Western world especially seems to be obsessed by this almost constant desire to be super thin.

These days, there is another treatment that seems to be gaining popularity with regard to people wanting to lose weight: Weight Loss Surgery.

Weight Loss Surgery, also known as bariatric surgery, is a type of body contouring surgery designed with sculpting the body and getting it into a desired shape and size.
It is also a type of surgery that has become increasingly popular in the United States and costs anything from $15000 upwards.
It involves removing sheaves of loose skin and then carrying out lifts on certain parts of the body such as the thighs, stomach, lower body, face, even whole-body
lifts can be performed.

Weight Loss Surgery can be considered as more of a cosmetic type of surgery - designed to make patients "look normal" however these are some severely obese
people for whom this type of surgery can be a life-saver. For them it won't be just a surgical operation that helps them to regain a more acceptable and safe body weight
but something that will improve their quality and potentially their longevity of life.

When patients require bariatric surgery, they need to have adequate and proper counselling both before and after their surgery. In addition to this they will need to b
be educated and informed about nutrition and how what they eat has an impact on their size and shape.

They also need to know what the impact of weight loss surgery will be on their body. For instance, sometimes when a patient has lost so much weight, it it inevitable
that they are going to end up with saggy skin - and sometimes, the skin is so saggy, that it actually has to be rolled up and placed into their clothes.

Patients need to be forewarned in order to be equipped to deal with such issues and, primarily, they need to know what the outcome may be. That is, that they are not just
going to wake up super slim and walk away - there will be other effects from the surgery.

They probably won't want to wear sleeveless tops and dresses even though they have lost all this weight. So - it's not all a rosy happy picture, even after the surgery.
