The bariatric surgeries such as gastric bypass or gastric sleeve, among others, involves making changes in the digestive system to help you lose weight. These are interventions designed for those who suffer from morbid obesity when exercise and diet have not worked, or for those cases in which there are other health problems associated with weight. Bariatric surgery can have multiple benefits that go beyond weight loss. We explain them below.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF BARIATRIC SURGERY?
- Improvement of other diseases: Bariatric surgery is an effective treatment for patients with morbid obesity. In addition to assuming weight loss, it also helps to improve other diseases associated with obesity, which also leads to lower mortality.

By losing weight thanks to bariatric surgery, the risk of suffering from all these diseases is reduced. It should be taken into account that, with regard to hypertension, for example, excess weight greatly increases the risk of suffering from it, since it is between two and three times more frequent than in people with a normal weight.
- Improved sleep apnea: obesity is an important risk factor for sleep apnea, due to the accumulation of fat in the areas around the airways. By losing weight thanks to bariatric surgery, the risk is also reduced.
