Bariatric surgery is a major surgery. It is a fairly safe procedure and it is minimally invasive. Anesthesia is required and there will be a two to four day hospitalization stay in most cases. Also, it will take several weeks to recover from this type of procedure. Although this procedure is designed to save lives, there are various risks associated with bariatric surgery such as infection, bleeding, vomiting, hernias at the site of the incision, blocked intestines, leakage of fluid from the stomach to the intestines, which could cause an infection in the abdomen. Others risks include injury to the spleen and
vitamin and iron deficiency. It is best to talk it over with a doctor before deciding on bariatric surgery.
