Steps to Choosing the Right Cosmetic Surgeon When Traveling to India

Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

Beauty is one thing everybody desires but not everyone will be willing to go to the extreme to get it. Taking the decision to go for cosmetic surgery in India is not an easy task because a lot of considerations have to be made including the cost and extent of the treatment. The most important step is to find a cosmetic surgeon who is competent enough to do the job.

Cosmetic surgery can take care of a number of problems

Saggy nose, wrinkled skin, and droopy breast are some of the conditions that arise from age. As you age, the skin goes through a lot of transformation that can cost you your beauty. Accidents and bruises can also leave permanent scars on our body which quickly becomes an eyesore. Cosmetic surgery can take care of all of those.

Saving cost is the main criteria why many patients choose India

Getting a safe and quality procedure ranks top when people make considerations on the place to perform their cosmetic surgery. Apart from that, patients are also looking for a way to save cost. India, Mexico, and Thailand have become a medical tourism hub because of their low cost of procedures driven by the increase in the competition among the countries.

How to choose the right cosmetic surgeon

Only the right cosmetic surgeon can guarantee you all the benefits that a cosmetic surgery can bring. Picking the right cosmetic surgeon is a herculean task for a number of reasons but there are a few pointers below can make the job seem easy.

1. Make a list of the available surgeons in India

Getting a list of all the available cosmetic surgeons in India can be very difficult because many of them are working hard to attract international patients. You can do this systematically by accessing their database or asking relevant questions.

2. Scrutinize their credentials

When you have gotten the list of the cosmetic surgeons, take your time to go through their credentials and training. Do not be too keen on the one with the highest qualification; rather, seek for a surgeon that is a residency in plastic surgery because of the wealth of experience they will bring to the table.

3. Is your surgeon board certified?

Board certification is an important criterion to consider when making your pick. Indian National Board of Examination issues this certificate in India after you must have graduated from medical school, completed five years residency and garnered two years of professional surgery experience from an accredited clinic.

4. Which Societies do they belong?

Being a member of professional societies is a great boost to the resume of any surgeon. Their membership to professional societies can also aid your verification of their qualification because you can call on the societies they belong to provide the information. However, you should realize that not all professional societies are relevant.

5. Do they have special privileges in the hospital?

If your surgeon is in the position to perform your surgery, get more details on this from the hospital because this information will be needed if an emergency should arise. When you have done all these and picked your favorite surgeon, the next step would be to fix an appointment with them.

Your first meeting should determine if you made the right choice of surgeon

Any patient who is going for a cosmetic surgery should normally be skeptical about the situation (unless maybe they have been through the process before). Your surgeon should be able to erase your fears and explain in details what the procedure would be like.

The Reason behind Medical Tourists’ Choice for Tijuana for Dental Work

Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

The beautiful city of Tijuana, located in Baja California in Mexico, is one of the dominant cities in the country. She has the most-crossed border in the world. The latest innovation in the country is the provision of a medical fast lane. Medical tourists, especially those who need dental sergury, tend to go to Tijuana these days for the following reasons.

Medical fast lane facilitates the movement of US medical tourists into the country

The implementation of the medical fast lane was done in such a way that only dental tourist driving into the city from San Diego using a car with US plates can make use of it. However, the clinic where the medical procedure will be done has to provide the pass which would facilitate their movement across the border.

Tijuana is ideal for Canadians and Americans looking for dental procedure

The dental clinics located in Tijuana have a preferential treatment for international patients. They are provided with the highest medical treatment standard that is comparable to those found in other regions of the world. American citizens, in particular, can be sure of getting dental works that are pocket-friendly and will save them great cost in comparison to doing the same treatment in their home country.

There are different routes you can take to Tijuana

Tijuana has an airport which you can make use of to enter the city or you can decide to go by car – which is a cheaper means, most times. If you depart from downtown San Diego, you should get to Tijuana in twenty minutes. If you feel like exercising, you can park your car close to the border and walk into the city. There is also the option of the city bus. Whichever you decide, the choice is yours to make.

January and February are the best months to visit the city

If Tijuana is your choice for dental tourism, then you should try to make your journey fall in January or February because these months usually have clear weathers bearing in mind that Tijuana has a semi-arid cold weather. This does not mean that medical tourists cannot visit the city at the time that best fits their schedule.

Communication in Tijuana will not be an obstacle

No doubt, the official language in the city is Spanish but the medical staff – in particular – and the majority of the locals are fluent in the English language which will make communication easy for International travelers.

Currency exchangers are available at the borders

There are cities in the world that do not allow the use of other currencies besides their local currency. Tijuana is not one of them. US Dollars is widely accepted in the city irrespective of the fact that their local currency is the Peso.If you feel there is a need to change to the local currency, you can always find currency exchangers at the borders.

The price for dental procedures depends on the procedure involved

A porcelain crown would cost you about $295. This is a great relieve for medical tourist when weighed against the $1000 it would cost them to get the same procedure done in the United States. Dental fillings cost about $60 against $400 in the US. If you intend to carry out a robust dental care, the best option to save money is to stay in Tijuana.

There are lots of procedures that can be carried out in Tijuana

There is a wide range of options when it comes to a dental procedure in Tijuana. Procedures such as biological dentistry, periodontics, pediatric dentistry, orthodontics, endodontic as well as dental implants for crowns and veneers are available.

The Different Ways You can Lose Weight without Breaking a Sweat

Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

Weight loss is one of the major pursuits of health-conscious people around the globe. If you mentioned that you wanted to lose weight like half a century ago, the mind of your audience would first go to the direction of some rigorous exercise and then to a diet plan. In the twenty-first century, that notion has changed. Now, there are several ways to lose weight otherwise known as slimming and most of them do not come with the stress of their predecessor. 

Gaining weight brings anxiety in many people

Gaining weight is not particular to any sex or race but it has been shown that women are more susceptible to gaining weight more than men. The problem with gaining weight include loss of beauty, difficulty in fitting into favorite dresses or shoes and an increased likelihood of having body odor because of the increased production of sweat by the body.

Weight loss results from a loss of body fluid

There are a number of factors that can lead to weight loss and a few of them are the reasonable loss of body fluid, loss of fats or adipose tissue and a reduction in muscles, tendons, bone mineral deposits and other body connective tissues. Some of these can happen naturally during starvation, disease invasion or physical stress while others can be engineered through surgical interventions.

The old forms of weight loss techniques have something in common

Exercising is good to keep the weight low but it wears you out easily and is not always sustainable. The candidate after some time will begin to miss some of their routines till they gradually stop it entirely. Nutrition is not also very sustainable because the person begins to salivate when they come across those meals they are supposed to avoid and after some time, their appetite may overwhelm them. The two techniques also take a long time to achieve the desired techniques.

Modern means of losing weight rely heavily on technology

The improvement in technology has led to the production of machines that can facilitate the process of weight loss without the person involved having to go through the nightmare associated with the process. The use of these techniques has sometimes come under criticism for the reason why some people cannot sustain the weight they have lost because they did not suffer from losing it. Some of the machines in use currently are;

1. Power plate machine

This machine uses the power of vibration to burn fat and helps the muscles to develop. The working principle of the power plate machine is easy and goes thus; the muscles are meant to contract once or twice in a second but the power plate machine can amplify this number to thirty or fifty times in a second. This rigorous contraction builds the muscles and prevents them from wear and tear.

2. Ozone therapy

The ozone layer is a protective layer in the cloud that shields the earth from too many harmful rays of the sun. Ozone has an extra molecule of oxygen compared to water. Treating a patient with ozone can increase their detoxification, stimulate their immune system and increase the amount of oxygen available to them.

3. Cellulite treatment

Cellulite can be a very important indicator in the body. When there is a decrease in the circulation of cellulite in a particular area of the body, it means that area is having a low supply of nutrition and oxygen. This will lead to decreased production of collagen which will manifest as wrinkling of the skin. The knees, stomach, thighs, and buttocks of women usually have cellulites.

The Pros and Cons of Having Breast Implant Done Abroad

Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

The concept of people traveling to other countries to seek better healthcare and for the sake of tourism is not particularly new. More and more patients over the years have begun to cross borders to tap into the numerous benefits of medical tourism. Inasmuch as there are great benefits that come with traveling abroad for medical tourism, there are also some downsides that we need to look at.

The cost of treatment is the major reason why people travel

The major reason why many patients move from one country to another for medical tourism is to get treatment at a price that is a fraction lower than it would have been in their home country. [*There are those that undertake these journeys for the sake of getting treatment that is not available in their home countries as well. *] A comparative study shows that healthcare service in US and many European nations is enormously costly and in some cases, beyond affordability of common people.

Breast implant options for women have increased tremendously

The options available to women who intend to have breast implants is far more than what it used to be two decades ago. Some of the currently available procedures are less invasive than their predecessors too. Some of them leave scars that are barely visible and the implants are tailored to the patient’s choice. Some of the available methods include;

1. Saline breast implants

The most popular type of implant is the saline breast implants. The reason why the saline implant is more preferred is because it offers a natural feel and has a uniform shape. In the incidence of a leak, the patient is not adversely affected because the saline will be absorbed by the body and expelled naturally.

2. Silicone implants

The FDA has approved this implant for adults above twenty-two years. It also feels like a natural breast and in the case of a leak, the silicone gel will be retained in the breast implant pocket or the implant shell.

3. Gummy bear breast implants

This breast implant is better than the earlier two because if there is a break in the shell, the shape of the implant will not be changed. The silicone content is thicker; therefore, the implant is firmer when compared to traditional ones. The incision has to be cut deeper into the skin to place it.

4. Breast augmentation by fat transfer

The fats used to augment the breast are gotten from liposuction from other parts of the body. The procedure is perfect for women who are looking for a slight increase in the size of their breast. Those who want natural look after the procedure should resort to this method.

The price for breast implants differs depending on the country

Breast augmentations are carried out in different parts of Asia and North American countries. Some of the countries that witness the influx of medical tourists include South Korea, Turkey, Thailand, Costa Rica, and Mexico. Out of the six listed countries, South Korea has the highest cost of the implant which is approximate $4000 while the cheapest procedure is in Turkey (costing around $2700).

Minimal waiting time is one of the advantages of carrying out implant abroad

The reduction in the price of the procedure is the strong bait that attracts foreign patients but besides that, foreign patients are not placed on waiting list. They also get to enjoy a well-deserved vacation which is instrumental for healing.

Traveling abroad for medical tourism has a downside

The disadvantages, on the other hand, includes that there may be complications which may lead to the patient spending more. It is also hard to verify the qualification of the surgeons in the clinics involved likewise the credibility of the facilities in their clinics.

The Prices of Breast Augmentation in Different Countries

Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

Breast is one part of females that gives aesthetics as well as motherly look. Sagging of the breast is a natural phenomenon that comes with aging. However, with improvement in surgery, women who have sagging breasts or breasts that are not the size or shape they desire can have them augmented through a surgery known as mammoplasty. The cost of this particular surgery varies from country to country. A comprehensive study of mammoplasty and the causes of the varied range of cost for it have been discussed below.

Mammoplasty makes use of fat transfer

The breast can lose its shape, texture, and beauty after one has lost weight or after pregnancy. Accidents can also lead to the deformation of the breast. During mammoplasty, fats are harvested from other parts of the body and transferred to the breast to increase their size, shape and texture.The result of mammoplasty is usually immediate and also long lasting.

Breast implants can also be synthetic

When the actress, Angelina Jolie went for a medical checkup, the prognosis revealed that she may likely come down with cancer. The surgeons had to surgically remove her breast and in its place, artificial implants were inserted. These implants are silicone bags containing silicone gel or saline. Each of the different filings has their pros and cons.

There are myriads of reasons that drive the flow of international medical tourists

The reasons that prompt medical tourists to move from their country of origin or residence to other countries are numerous and to a large extent vary from one individual to another. A few of the reasons are listed below.

1. Rare procedures

Many medical tourists move to countries where they can get procedures that are not available or allowed in their home countries. One of such procedures is stem cell transplant. This practice is considered as unethical and banned in many countries.

2. Better facility

Some countries like the third world countries are still battling with a health system that is not properly developed. Some of these countries can rarely boast of high-tech medical facilities which can aid some physicians to successfully carry out certain procedures,

3. Shorter waiting time

One of the characteristics of performing surgeries in one’s home country is the long waiting time. Patients are often placed on a waiting list and this sometimes leads to an escalation of their already dire condition.

4. Cost

This is by far the most important reason that drives the direction of flow of medical tourist in recent times. Patients from developed countries are moving to developing countries because they offer treatments of nearly the same standard at a cheaper cost than can be gotten in the developed countries.

Medical tourist can save as much as seventy percent of cost of treatment

The reduced cost of treatment usually results from the exchange rate of the local currency. The United States Dollars (USD), the Great Britain Pounds (GBP) and various other currencies are stronger than the local economy of the third world countries. When medical tourists change their currencies, they discover that they save more.

India’s medical tourist influx is linked to the cost of treatment

The cheapest medical augmentation surgery can be found in India. It is on statistics that breast augmentation ranks top among the procedures sought by medical tourists. As of now, medical tourism contributes a great deal to India’s GDP.

The highest cost of breast augmentation is in Turkey

The cost of breast augmentation is high in Turkey, costing over four thousand dollars. Getting breast augmentation surgery in certain parts of Asia such as South Korea and Thailand is usually very expensive when compared to the underdeveloped regions. North American countries like Mexico offer a prize that is moderate (between $2,000 and $3000).

What You should Consider When Choosing an International Surgeon for Plastic Surgery

Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

When you are traveling to an internationals country for plastic surgery, it is very important that you know whose hands you are entrusting your health. Some of the questions that need to be answered include: are they qualified? What experience do they have? What certifications do they have? Will they be able to meet my expectations? Since it is a very daunting task, you should be very careful about choosing your surgeon.

Take time to do your homework before traveling

There are a lot of websites out there that customers can consult for their medical tourism needs. Patients should take their time to survey these websites to know which among them is credible. The credibility of medical tourist websites can be accessed by taking a close look at the reviews especially from people who have used their services in the past.

You need to verify the certification of your surgeon

Giving yourself to a surgeon that is not board certified in a reconstructive plastic surgery can be likened to giving yourself up to scientists as a specimen for an experiment. You can check the surgeon’s certification through board-certifying association of their country. There should be a governing body which oversees the plastic or cosmetic surgery procedures in every country and they determine the minimum requirements a surgeon should have before they are allowed to practice.

International plastic surgeons are certified in countries besides their home country

One important attribute of international surgeons is that they oftentimes have certification in countries besides their native country or the one they reside. Patients have the right to ask their surgeon to show them their certifications and the surgeon is supposed to oblige this request.

The experience of the surgeon is a very important factor to consider

When choosing an international plastic surgeon, one quality you should keep in mind is the experience they have. The specialization of the plastic surgeon has to be put into consideration also. For example, there are plastic surgeons that specialize in facial reconstruction while there are those that have their specialty in breast augmentation although they all come under the umbrella of plastic surgeons. Some of the things you should be keen to know about your plastic surgeon are;

*

The number of surgeries they have carried out in the past.

*
p<>{color:#000;}. The possibility of meeting some of their past patients to get their experience.

*
p<>{color:#000;}. They should be able to tell you some of the predisposing risk factors that can increase the likelihood of side effect.

All your attention should not only be focused on the plastic surgeon

The state of the clinic is nearly as important as the certification and experience of the plastic surgeons. A poor medical facility can only breed a poor outcome even if the best plastic surgeons are to handle your case. If a clinic denies you access to their facilities, you should raise an eyebrow about their services.

Verify if there are side effects linked to the procedure you want to carry out

One of the critical problems medical tourists face is that of side effects. The side effects sometimes begin to manifest when they have left the facility and returned to their home countries leading to increased expenses on their part. Knowing about the possible side effects in connection with the procedure you want to carry out can help prepare for the worst so that it doesn’t take you by surprise.

The growth in medical tourism can lead to laxity on the part of the clinics

As medical travels grow, clinics may become overwhelmed by the number that proper health regulations may be undermined. For this reason, patients should take charge of their health through in-depth research.

Why You Need Dental Specialists When Seeking Dental Tourism

Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

The teeth are a very important part of the human body without which eating becomes very difficult, except you decide to feed on fluid and mash all your life. A well-organized set of dental increases self-confidence and encourages a flamboyant smile – and we all know how therapeutic a smile can be.

People lose their teeth for a number of reasons

Some people are born naturally with irregular dental. A good example is a child born with an orofacial cleft. However, there exists those born with perfect dental but for one reason or the other, their teeth begin to depreciate and they would need a surgical procedure to get them corrected. Some of the conditions that can make one lose their teeth are as follows;

1. Being involved in an accident

Many of those who live to tell the story of an accident usually do so with scars on different parts of their body. A hard impact on the jaw during an accident can make you lose your dental – and we know that permanent teeth do not grow back once they have been lost.

2. Certain disease conditions

Osteoporosis is a well-known disease that leads to wasting of bone mass – which has the same material as the teeth. Poor oral hygiene can lead to the mineralization of the enamel by bacteria which will lead to the formation of holes in the teeth; a medical condition known as plaque. Cancer of the gum can also lead to the loss of teeth.

3. Growing old

Age has a lot of negative impacts on the body; your skin begins to wrinkle, you begin to lose your hair and your teeth begin to fall off one after the other. Aging is a natural process that cannot be stopped but its effects on the body can either be slowed or remedied to enable you to keep living a healthy life.

Medical tourists to Cancun should properly access the facility

The second most important factor medical tourists have to keep a keen eye on is the level of sophistication of the equipment found in their destination clinic. One question you should ask yourself is whether they still use age-long instruments to harvest the teeth or they employ the latest technology in their procedure. The level of sophistication, in the hands of the right specialist, can yield an amazing result.

Looking for clinics that offer extra services will not be a bad idea

When traveling for medical tourism, it is paramount that your journey is as seamless as possible. If there are two clinics that offer the similar procedure at the same price but one of them have extra services like pick-ups and drop-offs from the hotel to clinic in any area in Cancun for the duration of your stay, then there is no reason not to book an appointment with them because it will save you some cost.

There are different dental implants that can be used to replace lost tooth

The growth in technology has led to the improvement in the type of implants used for dental procedures. The recent implants make use of titanium which is more durable and not rejected by the body unlike older forms of dental implants. Some of the dental implant procedures currently available are; all on 4, single/multiple dental implants, zirconium dental implants, Sinus lift, bone grafting and so on.

Dental specialists can offer treatment that suits your budget

Traveling to Cancun, Mexico can save the patient 70% of the cost compared to USA clinics. Specialists from the USA and other European countries come to practice in Cancun. They are all board certified and can advise you on the best procedure that will suit your budget. Only a dental specialist can guarantee you the full benefit of dental procedures.

Belly Flabs can be Lost Easily Using Bariatric Surgery

Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

Excessive fat accumulation coupled with the lack of exercise is the leading cause of obesity. Obesity predisposes the person to more severe health challenges like type 2 diabetes, osteoarthritis, sleep apnea, gallbladder disease, cancer and so on. Furthermore, the risk of coronary heart disease and stroke is increased by obesity and overweight. Among many other procedures to reduce belly flabs, Bariatric surgery is a very effective one that most people opt out in recent times.

Lack of physical exercise is the primary cause of obesity

If you have a huge appetite for food but engage in a strenuous physical activity afterward, the calories stored in the food you have eaten will be burned by the body to provide energy for you to continue your work. If you fail to engage in physical activity, on the other hand, the calories will be converted to glycogen and stored which adds up to bloat you out.

Reducing weight can be a technique to fight diseases

Since it has been established that overweight predisposes one to various diseases, it will then be right, as a preventive mechanism, to shed off the excess pounds as a way of staying healthy. The next important question is the means by which you intend to lose the excess weight. There are several options available but only a few are hassle-free.

Exercising and dieting can be used to lose weight

There might have been a time when exercising and dieting were the only options to weight loss but that era is long gone. The earlier methods had serious limitations; while exercise was too stressful and rarely sustainable, dieting was a psychological torture which only a few could observe diligently. Mild exercising is less stressful but the needed result will not be achieved as fast as desired.

Obese patients would pick gastric surgery over exercising or dieting

The aforementioned limitations of exercising and dieting are the lead among the reason why obese patients would prefer to go for bariatric surgery. The latter procedure has different forms and aims to either reduce the size of the stomach or reduce assimilation of digested food into the body.

Obese patients in US and Canada are traveling abroad for bariatric procedure

Bariatric is a very popular procedure in the United States and Canada and you will be able to find very nice clinics that are offering the procedure. Lately, however, more and more patients are traveling across the border into Mexico to carry out the procedure there and this is because the cost of the procedure is far cheaper in Mexico.

Patients always become tensed once surgery has been mentioned

It has become a normal feeling for patients to lose their breath whenever surgery is mentioned. Some may even begin to wonder which is riskier; going under the knife or living with the obesity. However, bariatric surgery is a safe and highly effective surgery. Weight loss cannot be ignored if you have a weight exceeding 100lbs or a body mass index exceeding 40.

Mexico is the preferred destination for bariatric surgery for a number of reasons

The cost difference is glaring and enough to sway any obese patient to have their procedure in Mexico, but besides the cost, Mexican physicians are highly innovative and their facilities can boast of the latest technology that there is when it comes to surgery and human health. They also have top surgeons, drawn from different parts of the world with the sole aim of providing quality healthcare services to the patients.

Mexican clinics offer special packages

Medical tourism websites in Mexico not only provides a list of possible medical tourism destination clinics to patients but a few of them also offer special packages that come with the surgery fee to enable the patient to have the best experience of Mexico. Patients also have an array of medical procedures to choose from.

How You can Find Beauty in Latin America During Your Medical Tourism

Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

The odds that there are some people who do not want to be associated with beauty is very close to zero. When we see someone who is very beautiful and have all the desired qualities we wished to have ourselves, we are often filled with awe and longing to have a shot at being in their position. Many of such beautiful ladies are found in Latin America – but what if you were told you can be just like them? What would your reaction be?

Beauty can be achieved through medical tourism

If peradventure, there are some flaws in your skin inbuilt in you naturally or which resulted from injuries or diseases, then you can seek for plastic surgery to help you correct these flaws. Beauty is often psychological and would greatly affect your confidence. Hence, plastic surgery can be a way to increase your confidence.

In the past, only the extremely rich could afford plastic surgery

A few years back, only those who are very rich in the society could afford a plastic surgery. The reasons behind the expensive cost of plastic surgery could be linked to the small number of medical surgeons and the expensive instruments that were required to successfully carry them out. In recent times, anyone who can afford a plane ticket can have a plastic surgery.

The growth in medical tourism has forced down the price of plastic surgery

Medical tourism has become a booming business, starting from the last quarter of the last century. Many countries have been trying to make themselves the medical tourism Mecca. As more and more countries joined in the provision of quality health and beauty care, competitive prices began to dictate the destination of medical tourists – and Mexico has suddenly become a heavyweight in the medical tourism industry.

A 2013 survey has placed Mexico among the lead medical tourism destinations

The survey which was carried out by the International Survey n Aesthetic/Cosmetic Procedures was able to reveal that Mexico was among the top 5 destinations for medical tourists seeking procedures such as breast augmentation, liposuction, nose surgery and general plastic surgery. Out of all the aforementioned procedures, liposuction tops with over sixty-two thousand cases.

Citizens from two countries make up the majority of Mexico’s medical tourists

It is on record that natives of the United States and Canada top the list of those who head to Mexico for medical tourism. The main attraction that draws these North American natives is the low price of the procedure in Mexico. Another source of attraction includes the professionalism of the medical staff and the shortness of the distance from their home.

Globalization of healthcare has helped many cities in Mexico to expand

There are lots of Mexican cities that now have facilities positioned to give the very best to medical tourists and they are; Mexicali, Tijuana, Cancun, and Cabo San Lucas. The rise in the recognition of these cities and Mexico as a whole in the medical tourism sphere is because they took advantage of the globalization of healthcare seekers unlike when people will insist they are treated at home.

Mexico medical tourism holds a promise of rapid expansion

If the influx of medical tourism into Mexico is sustained – and their actions on amassing of high-tech equipment suggest it would – then in no distant time, the medical tourism potential of Mexico will be greatly enhanced including their ability to venture into providing procedures that were not initially available to them by attracting medical professionals in other fields.

Weight Loss can be Achieved through Specialized Surgery

Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

Gaining and losing weight is the only action that goes against the natural law which stipulates that building up is more difficult than breaking down – in this case, it is the other way round. Too much weight gain can lead to obesity which is the lead cause of many health complications today. For instance, obesity is the lead cause of cardiac arrest which has a high fatality case globally.

Treating obesity is difficult and expensive

The natural remedy to obesity that many health professionals would mostly recommend are cutting down on carbohydrate intake as well as a daily regimen of exercise. These have been found to be effective but are slow to reach the desired target and exhausting too.The other near-natural remedy that is currently been explored is surgery but that too is very expensive.

There are different surgical procedures that lead to weight loss

Bariatric surgeries, lap banding, gastric banding, and gastric bypass are some of the currently explored surgeries that ultimately lead to weight loss. Their result ranges from almost immediate to a few months or years. The only setback which may make them inaccessible to everyone is their high cost – running into tens of thousands of dollars.

The cost of obesity surgery is relatively cheaper in Mexico

Americans and citizens of other nations aiming to cut down their weight now resort to the surgical procedures mentioned above. When it comes to destination, Mexico is preferred because they have professionals that are willing to offer the service at a rate that is cheaper that what can be gotten in other regions of the world that offer similar services. For Americans, this is also a closer alternative.

Obesity surgery is aimed at removing the excess fats

Obesity surgery tends to remove the excess fats in the tummy and laps which are the areas that tend to be obese. In a few procedures like gastric bypass, the absorption of food is reduced so that when the patient takes in their food, only a small fraction of it is reabsorbed into the body. In other cases, the size of the stomach is ultimately reduced so that the patient’s appetite for food drops remarkably.

The surgery to take care of obesity is safe

Just like the nonsurgical treatment for obesity, the surgical treatments are safe and come with no or light side effects. Patients who have gone through these procedures – like when the size of the stomach has been reduced to stop craving – usually face an initial behavioral adjustment step till they become used to their new appetite.

Patients who have gone through obesity surgery are subjected to post-surgical care

Post-surgical care is necessary to help the patient get used to their new physiological changes to avoid anxiety. The aftermath of obesity surgery includes reduced intake of food and reduced toileting which can be a source of anxiety to the patient. Obese patients also need a nutritional guide after the surgery to avoid making the process counterproductive because wrong dieting can return them to their initial state.

Enormous amount of weight can be lost in a short time

Obesity surgery has been shown to produce an incredible result in a very short period of time. For example, there have been cases where patients were able to lose as much as fifty-two pounds in four and half months. Many of these testimonies written by patients who have gone through the process of one obesity surgery or the other have been widely reported and could be a crucial read for those who have the intentions of going through similar procedures – as a source of courage.
