Obesity is a chronic condition that is hard to treat with just diet and exercise. Weight loss in Dubai is of a great concern to many women. Obesity means having too much body fat. It is different from being overweight, which means weighing too much. The weight may come from muscle, bone, fat, and/or body water. Both these terms means that a person’s weight is greater than what’s considered healthy for his or her height. Obesity occurs over time when you eat
more calories than you use. The balance between calories-in and calories-out differs for each person. For obese patients, surgical intervention at Dr. Girish Juneja’s hospital is frequently the treatment of choice. The treatment criterion is based on:

The food also needs to be soft or well-chewed.
Sleeve Gastrectomy Dubai – How it works:
It is another form of restrictive weight loss surgery. In the operation, the surgeon removes about 75% of the stomach. What remains of the stomach is a narrow tube or sleeve, which connects to the intestines. Sometimes, a sleeve gastrectomy is a first step in a series of weight loss surgeries. For some people, it’s the only surgery they need.
Gastric bypass surgery Dubai – How it works:
It is the most common type of weight loss surgery. It combines both restrictive and malabsorptive approaches. In the operation, the surgeon divides the stomach into two parts, sealing off the upper section from the lower. The surgeon then connects the upper
