Weight loss surgery is gaining popularity nowadays despite being dangerous and useless.

Lana Harber had £15000 weight loss surgery on NHS UK and she gained the weight back after shedding eight stone because of comfort eating. Lana underwent a gastric bypass operation on the recommendation of doctors. But two years after her operation, she has gained weight.

Miss Harber, from Kent said: "I blame no-one but myself, but my experiences have made me realise that gastric operations, which are often viewed as a quick fix, don’t make any difference if the root causes of obesity aren’t addressed.‘I’ ve had low self-esteem rooted in difficult experiences from my childhood that have caused me to comfort eat over the years."

‘Today whenever I hear anyone say they’re going for weight loss surgery, I always make sure I share my experiences. Patients need to be very mindful following their operations." she added.

Today, Lana weighs 14st and has excess skin left from her weight loss. Obesity Campaign UK warns people against weight loss surgery. Not only after surgery complication are endless such as Hernia, Internal Bleeding, Swelling of the skin around the wounds, etc.but also people will never be able to enjoy their food if they want to.

Even after surgery, patients have to continuously work to keep their food intake low and maintain a strict exercise schedule. The point is if patient has to exercise regularly and eat less than what is the point of surgery in the first place because that can be done free

and safely without going under the knife.
