Perth, Australia, 10 June, 2020- The pioneering bariatric surgeon Dr Ravi Rao, with remarkable record of success in weight-loss, general surgery and revisional procedures, knowns how effective procedures like gastric sleeve, gastric bypass and SIPS surgery can be for enabling successful, long-term weight loss and the healthier, slimmer body patients deserve.
Dr Ravi Rao, the head of Perth Surgical Bariatrics, also knows how important a healthy recovery process is to surgical success and how critical the right postoperative patient conditions are till achieving good health and sustained weight loss long after the patient has healed.
In the words of a medical associate with Perth Surgical Bariatrics, the first step to achieving one’s weight loss goals is to learn about obesity, weight loss and bariatric surgeries.
Obese or overweight is reported to exist in about 2 in 3 Australian adults and 1 in 4 Australian children. Obesity is defined as a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30+, which is based on weight, height, waist-measurement and gender.
“The more you weigh, the higher your BMI,” said the associate at Perth Surgical Bariatrics, who also added saying “the individuals with a high BMI have a lower quality of life and the excess weight tends to increase the risk of cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, musculoskeletal conditions and cancers.”
Both moderate and severe obesity are said to be able to cut down lifespans by years. As an example, the cases of morbid obesity was mentioned by the associate. Morbid obesity (measuring BMI over 40) has potential to cut lifespan by 5 to 20 years. “Our bariatric surgery can help patients feel better after getting their weight under control and resolving comorbidities,” said the head of Perth Surgical Bariatrics, www.perthsurgicalbariatrics.com.au/
