Dr. Kapil Agrawal: Best Bariatric Surgeon

Dr. Kapil Agrawal is one of the best bariatric surgeon in Delhi, India. For best results and best bariatric surgery in India. Obesity is gradually becoming a leading problem all over the world. Many medical conditions like diabetes, heart problems, high blood pressure, respiratory problems, depression, female infertility, and many more are directly associated with obesity. There is a piece of clear evidence that obesity cuts down your life by many years.

When simple activities start becoming tasks, it's time to think seriously about weight loss options.

Obesity: A Multifactorial Disease

You will be surprised to know that obesity is not all about over eating and sedentary life style. It is a multifactorial disease and there can be multiple reasons for weight gain without any awareness.

It is always advisable to consult a specialist doctor if you an experiencing constant weight gain.

Some of the common causes of obesity are

Overeating and lack of physical inactivity: the most common cause of obesity

Genetics: sometimes obesity tends to run into families due to deficiency of certain hormones involved in fat regulation

Medications: Certain medicines can promote weight gain. These medicines include antidepressants, anticonvulsants, steroids, certain antihypertensives, and antihistamines.

Psychological factors: Some psychological factors like emotional stress, anger, sadness can also lead to weight gain, as people tend to eat more during such conditions.

Diseases: : Certain medical illnesses such as hypothyroidism, insulin resistance, polycystic ovary syndrome, and Cushing's syndrome also contribute to obesity

A thorough and proper evaluation is necessary to decide the best treatment option and hence achieve desirable results

How to define obesity levels

Before we embark upon the treatment for obesity, it is essential to define obesity levels or the severity of obesity.

BMI is the easiest and the globally accepted method to define your obesity levels and know if you have a healthy weight or not.

BMI Range Category
< 16 Underweight
16 - 22.5 Healthy weight
22.5 - 27.5 Overweight
27.5 - 32.5 Obese
32.5 - 37.5 Severely obese
37.5 and over Morbidly obese

Your Weight Loss Goals Decides Your Treatment Options

Medical Weight-Loss

Medicines or

Instra Gastric


The best treatment option broadly depends upon your weight loss goals as each procedure has got its own limitations of producing the sustainable results.

Published scientific papers report that non-surgical methods rarely resolve severe obesity because they fail to help people maintain weight loss. In fact, more than 95% of people regain the weight they lose within a few years after treatment.

If your target for weight loss is 5-8 kg, it can be achieved with diet, exercise, and behavior modifications or medical weight loss program.

If you wish to achieve a weight loss of 10-15 kg, then intragastric ballooning can be a good option. However, along with that, dietary and behavior modifications are a must to achieve excellent long-term results.

Suppose your target for weight loss is more than 20 kg. In that case, bariatric surgery is the best available option for long-term successful weight loss.

Why Bariatric Surgery

Unfortunately for the majority of obese patients, dieting will produce transient, temporary weight loss.

Obesity can be complicated to treat. When other medically supervised methods have failed, bariatric surgery can offer a great option of long-term weight control for those with clinically severe obesity.

The mechanism of weight loss is entirely different when compared to other modalities. You will be astonished to know that surgery even works at hormonal levels. The hormonal changes cause suppression of appetite and cravings for sweets and junk foods. The hormonal changes in females helps in resolution of polycystic ovarian disease. It increases your insulin levels and thus helps in curing of diabetes.

It is well proven that bariatric surgery results in more significant weight loss than diet and exercise. This weight loss is permanent if the patient adheres to advise of their nutritionist and surgeon.

Significantly, surgery reduces the risk of death due to obesity and obesity-related health problems that diet and exercise cannot achieve.

Who should opt for bariatric surgery?

Bariatric surgery should be considered a treatment option in the following conditions:

  • If you have a body mass index (BMI) of over 37.5 kg/m 2
  • If you have a BMI of more than 32.5 kg/m 2 & has serious weight-related problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, arthritis or heart disease
  • If you are unable to achieve a healthy body weight for a sustained period, even though a medically supervised weight loss program
  • If obesity is hampering your day-to-day activities and you are unable to lead an everyday life
  • If your age is between 16 to 70 years

Advantages of Bariatric Surgery:

About 10 years back, NIH (National Institute of Health) reported that severely obese individuals cannot maintain weight loss achieved by conventional therapies like dieting, exercise, or commercial weight-loss programs. Bariatric or Weight-loss surgery is the only modality which can offer a permanent and effective cure from obesity and obesity related health problems.
The main advantages of bariatric surgery include:

Undoubtedly proved that bariatric (weight-loss) surgery is the only effective treatment for successful long term weight loss in morbidly obese patients.

Understanding Bariatric Surgery:

Bariatric surgery is considered the most effective treatment for obesity in terms of weight loss and the added advantage of the resolution of obesity-related medical illnesses like diabetes, hypertension, joint pains, and respiratory ailments.

It is performed using the laparoscopic or key-hole technique. The patients are walking around on the same day of surgery

Bariatric surgery consists of surgical procedures that either restrict the amount of food a stomach (reducing the size of the stomach) can hold or the number of calories the body can absorb (rerouting of intestines) or a combination of both.

It also brings hormonal changes in the body, which causes suppression of appetite and cravings for food or sweet things.

Laparoscopic Surgery for Bariatric Surgery:

Maximizing comfort, accelerating recovery, Minimizing complications

We perform bariatric surgeries using a laparoscopic approach where 3 tiny incisions are created on your abdominal wall of about 1 cm each.

The incisions are created in a manner so that they are hidden inside the belly button or skin creases making it a virtually invisible scar.

We ensure maximum cosmesis and offer single port laparoscopic surgery in selected number of patients.

The patients are discharged within 24-36 hours of surgery.

The main advantages of laparoscopic surgery:

  • Speedy Recovery
  • Early and Easy Mobility

The patients are usually discharged within 24-36 hours of surgery. we perform laparoscopic surgeries with an emphasis on reduced port surgeries making recovery extremely smooth and fast.

The morning after surgery we would expect our patient to walk around relatively comfortably. On discharge from hospital, we recommend increasing activity levels on a daily basis under the constant guidance of our physiotherapists. More active exercise such as at the gym can be introduced one week after surgery, with a gentle reintroduction to aerobic exercise such as light jogging, cycling or swimming. Any exercise involving heavy lifting can be started after one month. Majority of our patients are able to join back their work in weeks’ time.

We take great effort to ensure that even the tiny scars are almost invisible. We place the incisions either in the skin crease or inside the umbilicus so that are almost invisible. We offer single port laparoscopic surgeries in young females so that the scar is completely hidden inside the umbilicus.

The mechanism of Bariatric surgery is not completely confined to food restriction. In fact, there are procedures which hampers the absorption of fats. It means you can eat good amount of food but still the fat won’t be absorbed into your body.

Dr Kapil Agrawal, one of the best bariatric surgeons in India performs all types of weight loss surgeries. After a thorough evaluation and based on your history, dietary patterns and life style he can offer surgeries where you enjoy your food and at the same time lose weight effectively.

On the contrary, when you lose weight, you feel more energetic and enthusiastic. Your stamina increases and so is your confidence. You are able to carry out everyday activities more easily and your body feels light and comfortable.

Bariatric surgery is the only modality which ensures long term results in terms of weight loss provided you don’t cheat yourself. You stick to guidelines advised by surgeon and nutritionists and the results will be long lasting. However, one must ensure that the surgery is conducted in a proper manner and in experienced hands.

We run a set of tests before surgery. If the results are positive, believe us, diabetes will be completely cured within a few days after bariatric surgery. it is well established fact that shorter the duration of diabetes, better are the chances for a complete cure.

There is no doubt that some centers are over priced and some are offering surgeries at throw away prices. you must remember it’s a life transforming decision and you must ensure there is no compromise on quality and post operative services. The hospital services, surgeon experience and expertise, quality of operation theatres and equipment, back up services and post-operative care some of the factors which can determine the cost of surgery.

Weight loss surgery not only increases your sexual drive but also enhances your sexual performance. Your ability to satisfy your partner is significantly increased due to better performance and increased stamina.

The prospects of getting pregnant are tremendously increased after weight loss surgery. it is attributed to better sexual performance, increased sexual drive or libido, resolution or cure of polycystic ovarian disease and cure of hormonal disturbances. International guidelines suggest that patients who are obese should undergo bariatric surgery rather than IVF. It is because weight loss surgery not only cures infertility but also increases the chance of healthy pregnancy. obesity can be harmful to both mother and baby and is associated with many complications during and after pregnancy.
