Weight loss surgery in India gaining popularity among Australians

Weight loss surgery in India 


Obesity and Australian life style do not quite go together. Or that is what we thought.

Famous for their active lifestyles, rugged outdoor routines and, above all, sea shore activities, Australians were considered to be the least likely to get unhealthy or, even worse, obese.

Obesity in Australia

But recent reports of obesity came as rude shock to the world and a warning to Australian population. Obesity figures have reached millions. About 5 million Australians fall under those with BMI more than 30. 

In 2014-15 a whopping 63% of Australians were either Overweight or Obese; that's almost 2 in every 3 adults. 

Health reports begin to be widespread stating obesity to be the major and singular threat to public health in the continental nation. If the current obesity figures continue, chances are that about 80% of its adults and 33% of its kids by the year 2025 will fall under "obese" category. 

If suffering from obesity was just about having to go around in bodies with a bit of extra fat, it could have still been tolerable. But obese body becomes an ideal playground for all kinds of unwanted diseases like diabetes, heart attack, stroke, asthma, hypertension, high BP, CVD, chronic kidney disease and many types of cancers.

If figures are to be true, more than 900,000 in Australia already suffer from diabetes. It is reported that Every Five minutes One Australian develops Diabetes 

Australia has gained its place among the most obese nations in the world only next to United States, Mexico and New Zealand.  Men have more reason to be concerned because with 70% of the males reported to be obese as compared to 56% females. 

While nothing better than lifestyle changes can help the situation, many obese people find it difficult to exercise and make lifestyle changes when they are overweight. Bariatric surgery is the last and best resort for obese people to shed the extra pounds and lead a healthy, disease free life.

Bariatric Surgery Prices in Australia

But if things can go worse than this state of affairs, it goes like this- the extremely high cost of medical care has made it difficult for Australians to undergo weight loss surgery in their country.

Weight loss surgery or Obesity surgery is such a costly affair that common people cannot even think of spending on them unless they want to risk their entire savings. 

And this is not a simple problem. The risk of suffering from Obesity is much higher than people normally imagine.

Inspite of many people undergoing bariatric surgery all over the world, there are many myths associated with Weight loss surgery.

And the biggest myth is that Bariatric surgery is a cosmetic surgery, whereas the fact is that Bariatric surgery is a life saving surgery!

There are many benefits of weight loss surgery not only in terms of better self image and confidence, but many health benefits that come with weight loss. Here are a few of them:


However, the major problem becomes the cost of bariatric surgery in Australia which is too high and thus only a few can really afford to have the surgery.

Weight loss surgeries in India - A savior
