Weight related personality disorders
It doesn't need a lot of discussion, debate or deliberation to determine if weight related factors have their impact on an individual's personality and behavior. The true issue however is to relate it with set of personality disorders instead of simply limiting it with few considerations of issues of routine discipline. There are conditions like obesity and weight related diabetes, definitely not to be considered as certain considerations to be careful about, they are indeed serious healthcare issues posing challenges to long term health and even behavior. Since there are serious issues to consider in terms of physical and emotional health pertaining to excessive weight, therapy options like Bariatric Surgery are finding relevance with time. While gastric banding procedures are meant to strategically impose weight loss, procedures like tummy tuck are aimed at providing the desired impression without the patients having to wait for long time.

In case of gastric alterations that are done for the sake of Bariatric procedure, there are several dependencies.
