Atul Gawande uses his experiences as a surgical resident to write his article “The Man Who Couldn’t Stop Eating” in the July 9th, 2001 issue of the New Yorker. In this article, he discusses the power of appetite, using a balance between emotional experiences—specifically those of Vincent Caselli—and medical studies, to ultimately educate the public about the costs and benefits of gastric bypass surgery.
According to surgeon and Master of Public Health Atul Gawande, the morbidly obese should consider Roux-en-Y gastric-bypass surgery (Gawande 187). In “The Man Who Couldn’t Stop Eating,” Gawande describes Vincent Caselli’s gastric-bypass operation as well as his complete recovery. He explains what a Roux-en-Y gastric-bypass is, and retells several personal accounts from his experience as a surgeon. Throughout the article, Gawande gives many facts about the surgery, stating that many problems can arise during the recovery phase. Overall, many people lose at least two-thirds of their weight in a year; however, in rare cases, people can regain their weight or even exceed their original weight (194, 196). Although one out of two hundred people may die from this surgery, doctors claim the benefits outweigh the risks (198). Gawande effectively explains through the use of statistics and personal experiences that Roux-en-Y gastric bypass has many health benefits, and that it takes a great amount of willpower to change one’s lifestyle after this life-altering operation.

Today plastic surgery is being embraced by the millions and highly looked upon. Advertisements and media incorporated young, beautiful women to sell the product with fake and flawless women in advertisements, an ideal body is created by the minds of viewers. This causes viewers to do as much as possible involving plastic surgery, to look like the models. For Instance, in 2015 more than 13.5 million women went under the knife by surgeons certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, says the American Society of Plastic Surgeons statistics. The five most popular invasive surgical procedures for women in 2015 were liposuction, breast augmentation, tummy tucks, eyelid surgery and breast lift (ASPS statistics). Also, cosmetic procedures have increased by 39% over the past ﬁve years (from 2011) with surgical procedures up 17% and nonsurgical procedures up 44%(ASPS statistics). It shows that young women are willing to put themselves in danger because they feel the need to meet society's expectations of beauty. When going into cosmetic surgery, there is a risk of death or side effects that people are aware of, but still undergo the procedure. All because we live in a world where first impressions are made by how we look and thanks to magazines advertisements they set the “ideal” look for us and we all try to reach that look no matter how it

Gastric bypass surgery or bariatric surgery as it is sometimes called, makes the stomach smaller and allows food to bypass part of the small intestine. You will feel full more quickly than when your stomach was its original size, which reduces the amount of food you eat and thus the calories consumed.

Follow-up visits occur every three months to help your weight stabilize and to make sure that you are comfortable with your new lifestyle. Also, I am glad that you are not just selling products, but have some good links to information about gastric bypass surgery. Good luck.
Adult obesity is a growing problem. From 1962 to 2006, obesity prevalence nearly tripled to 35.1 percent of adults. The rising prevalence of obesity is not limited to a particular socioeconomic group and is not unique to the United States. Should this widespread obesity epidemic be a cause for alarm? From a personal health perspective, the answer is an emphatic "yes." But when it comes to justifications of public policy for reducing obesity, the analysis becomes more complex. A common starting point is the assertion that those who are obese impose higher health costs on the rest of the population—a statement which is then taken to justify public policy interventions. But the question of who pays for obesity is an empirical one, and it involves

According to Attitudes of Adolescents About Cosmetic Surgery, “A survey of the junior class of a California suburban high school showed that one-third of respondents would consider undergoing cosmetic surgery.” Cosmetic surgery, in the U.S., is known to have a negative connotation, because one would consider you “fake” or not true to yourself. From this study done by Weston and Pearls, a large number of teens in this school would consider getting cosmetic surgery. There are different reasons to wanting it done. One might consider it for self-esteem purposes or if they have a medical problem that is disabling them from living a normal life.
This report is written to find out the pros and cons of cosmetic surgery to people as well as how much cosmetic surgery has benefited people both positively and negatively.
