HOW OBESITY CAN AFFECT YOU

Obesity is not just a weight issue.

It is a chronic, relapsing condition in which an increase in body fat can result in multiple health consequences.

Knowing the causes of your weight gain, screening for and tackling any health consequences arising from it, is essential in the successful management of obesity.

BARIATRIC SURGERY

Surgery is available for patients who satisfy certain criteria. These include extreme obesity, failure to lose weight with non-surgical means, or metabolic diseases (e.g. diabetes) that are not controlled by conventional means.

Various operations are available that can be tailored to each individual patient. These include:

  • Sleeve Gastrectomy,
  • Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass,
  • Bilio-Pancreatic Diversion, and
  • Adjustable Gastric Band.

All of these are performed via Laparoscopy (Key Hole Surgery), providing less painful and faster recovery. 95% of our patients stay not more than 2 days after their operation.

Bariatric surgery is not a quick fix solution for weight loss. All surgical patients need to make changes to their lifestyle and eating habits.

All surgical patients need lifelong follow-up with our dedicated team of professionals. These include Bariatric Specialist Nurse Coordinators, Dietitians, Physiotherapists, and our Specialist Doctors.

As part of the KTPH Bariatric Surgery service, the Singapore LapBandits run once every three months. This is a support group for Bariatric Surgery subjects, providing support for those who have had surgery and those who are contemplating surgery. You can visit the group's Facebook page for more information.
