Many people look at themselves in the mirror and are disappointed with what they see. The person looking back at them from the mirror is over weight and has a terribly looking body, in their opinion. Each year they look at that same reflection and hope that the time has come for that body to change. 2010 may be the year that their hopes come true; they may turn to cosmetic weight loss procedures to take the weight off for good.
The Weight Loss Surgery Channel has a huge store of information concerning weight loss surgery including patient education, success stories, and breaking news. They reported that the Consumer Guide to Bariatric Surgery has assembled a list of the top ten trends in weight loss surgery that they expect to see in 2010. One of the trends that is foreseen is a rise in bariatric surgeries, with more teenage and diabetic people seeking out this weight loss surgery.
Obesity is a problem in the UK that has been slowly growing in recent years. A study led by Professor Klim Mcpherson, of the University of Oxford, predicted that by 2020 eight out of ten men and seven in ten women will be overweight, if the current trends continue. Increases in the number of people who are overweight have caused many specialist to come to the conclusion that weight loss surgery is going to
become more and more sought out.
Advances in types of weight loss surgery have made the procedures more desirable. Some procedures are in clinical trails that do not require incisions. The procedures that do require incisions have been improved so much that the incisions are small and there are less incisions necessary. Some procedures are performed by using a band to cinch off the top of the stomach, making a small pouch. This limits the amount of food that you can east and slows digestion. In gastric bypass surgery a small pouch is created in the stomach and the food in this pouch is rerouted to bypass part of the small intestine. This keeps the rerouted food from getting absorbed by the body.
These weight loss surgeries can cause a substantial amount of weight loss. People who are obese can finally shed all of that excess weight. Once the weight is gone many people will consider having a new procedure called corset trunkplasty. This procedure will help to return the elasticity of the skin and give people the contours that they always dreamed of having. Women can have the hourglass figure that will give them a confident and happy life. 2010 is sure to be a big year for weight loss surgeries.
