Extra body fat associated with higher body mass index (BMI) includes an increased risk of premature death.
Morbid obesity (BMI 40+) and super-obesity (BMI 50+) includes a still higher chance of dying younger. The majority of the higher risk is because of co-morbid conditions like cardiovascular disease (diabetes, heart attack, or stroke).
Weight loss surgery is considered successful when excess weight is reduced by 50 percent and the weight loss is sustained for five years.
At present, average excess weight reduction at five years is 45-75 percent after gastric bypass and 40-60 percent after vertical banded gastroplasty.
Restrictive procedures like gastric-banding and stomach stapling carry a number of short-term post-operative health risks, including:
Risk of hernia- About 10-20 percent of patients requires additional surgery to fix problems like abdominal hernias caused by excessive straining after surgery before the incision heals. Laparoscopic surgery reduces this risk.
Risk of band slippage and saline leakage.-A routine complication, occurs after lap band or other forms of adjustable gastric banding.
Risk of bowel obstruction- This rare complication may occur due to adhesions caused by scar tissue.
