Bariatric surgery is a medical procedure designed to help individuals with severe obesity lose weight by altering the size and function of the stomach. It comprises a gastric bypass procedure wherein the surgeon creates a small pouch from the top of the stomach and connects it directly to the small intestine. It also includes sleeve gastrectomy, which involves removing a portion of the stomach, leaving a banana-shaped sleeve. It consists of adjustable gastric banding, where a band is placed around the upper part of the stomach to create a small pouch, limiting food intake. It also encompasses biliopancreatic diversion, which involves removing a significant portion of the stomach and rerouting the digestive system to limit calorie absorption. It requires extensive post-operative care, wherein patients are monitored closely to address any complications. It is typically recommended for people who have failed to achieve significant and sustained weight loss through other means, such as diet and exercise. It helps alleviate or resolve obesity-related health conditions, leading to a better quality of life and a reduced risk of complications like heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. It can lead to long-term health benefits, reducing the risk of life-threatening illnesses.

South Korea Bariatric Surgery Market Trends:

At present, the rising obese population due to the consumption of calorie-rich diets and the adoption of unhealthy lifestyles represents one of the crucial factors impelling the growth of the market in South Korea. The rising awareness among individuals about the need for effective, long-term weight management solutions is catalyzing the demand for bariatric surgical procedures. Moreover, the refinement and diversification of surgical techniques, such as laparoscopic and robotic-assisted surgeries, are reducing post-operative complications and recovery time, making bariatric surgery an attractive option for obese individuals. In addition, the rising acceptance and coverage of bariatric surgeries by insurance providers are expanding the patient pool by making these procedures more accessible. Furthermore, the emergence of interdisciplinary care models that integrate nutritional counseling and post-surgery follow-up care is improving patient outcomes and enhancing the overall value proposition of bariatric surgery. Besides this, the growing adoption of minimally invasive (MI) procedures, as these techniques offer several advantages, including smaller incisions, reduced pain, faster recovery, and shorter hospital stays, is offering a favorable market outlook in the country. Additionally, the increasing recognition of the importance of mental health and psychosocial factors in the context of obesity management is fostering greater collaboration between bariatric surgeons and mental health professionals.
