Obesity surgery is not the first choice for every patient. Patients are primarily included in diet and exercise weight control programs, but in overweight patients with a high body mass index, this program does not provide long-term sustainable weight loss. Therefore, obesity surgery is the most effective method of providing permanent weight control for some patient groups. Obesity surgery should be aware that the person has undergone an important operation in order to have a definite and lasting effect on weight loss, and should continue feeding and exercising after surgery. These patients have a very high weight loss rate, but to maintain weight permanently, a person’s lifestyle is important for the post-operative period.
