Obesity has been a rising problem not only in the US but all over the world. While there are medications out there that aim at weight reduction, there are also surgical procedures that are aimed for long-term weight reduction, however, after the surgery the patient will have to adjust their dietary and lifestyle changes that is warranted to support the desired outcome of the surgery.
