Riassunto: Obesity is a major national health problem, and science has been developing a number of ways to address it. The most revolutionary is surgical intervention to alter the gastrointestinal system so that less food/nutrients can be consumed and/or absorbed. People who undergo this surgery usually experience drastic weight loss and dramatic health improvements. They also discover a new sense of self and face challenges often unimaginable when they were obese. Using in-depth, first person accounts of 33 men and women who underwent weight-loss surgery, this book elaborates on the complexities of finally getting what you wished for? the good, the bad, and the totally unexpected. We live in a culture fascinated by physical make-overs, but no one talks about their psychological consequences. Losing a lot of weight is perhaps the most extreme make-over of all. It leaves people emotionally changed, and these changes are the heart of this book.The fascinating narratives contain important lessons for individuals considering or having had the surgery and for those who try to help them. It is simply a story of how finally getting what you?ve always wished for can be much more complicated affair than you ever imagined.

L'autore: A native of Madrid, Spain, Dr. Marta Meana obtained her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from McGill University in Montreal, completed a pre-doctoral internship in Behavioral Medicine and Outpatient Psychiatry at the University of California, San Diego and then a post-doctoral fellowship in Women?s Health at the Toronto Hospital in Toronto, Canada. Dr. Meana has over 50 scientific publications to her name and has presented her research in close to 60 conference presentations. Areas of research have included obesity surgery, female sexual dysfunction, chronic pain, and breast and cervical cancer screening.

Dr. Lindsey Ricciardi received her bachelor?s degree from the University of Maine and a doctorate in clinical psychology from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. She was honored with the UNLV President?s Graduate Fellowship in 2003 for her seminal research efforts investigating psychological and social aspects of weight loss surgery. Together with her husband Dominic, a bariatric physician, she runs an interdisciplinary weight management program, Creative Health Solutions, in Las Vegas, Nevada, where she serves as Director of Behavioral Health Services.

Cover has bending. Obesity Surgery: Stories Of Altered Lives (Hardcover) By Meana, Marta; Ricciardi, Lindsey Product Description The surprising and unpredictable story of the personal and social after-effects of rapid and dramatic weight loss. Using in-depth, first person accounts of 33 men and women who underwent weight-loss surgery, this book elaborates on the complexities of finally getting what you wished for - the good, the bad, and the totally unexpected. Suddenly being treated well by previously dismissive strangers is embraced by some, yet it angers others who question a kindness reserved only for the non-obese. Attention from the opposite sex is both flattering and scary, as many have little experience dealing with such advances. Marriages and relationships are rocked for better and for worse, as jealousy, insecurity and shifting roles jolt previously stable dynamics. All the changes provoke a re-evaluation of who one is and what one values. This is the story of how dramatic weight loss can result in personal growth, with all of its attendant joys and painful challenges. We live in a culture fascinated by physical make-overs, but no one talks about their psychological consequences. Losing a lot of weight is perhaps the most extreme make-over of all. It leaves people emotionally changed. These changes are the heart of our book. The fascinating narratives contain important lessons for individuals considering or having had the surgery and for those who try to help them. The material will be of personal significance to the lay-person but it is also a guide for health providers in the design of pre- and post-operative support interventions. At a more basic level, it is simply a story of how finally getting what you've always wished for can be much more complicated affair than you ever imagined.

Descrizione libro University of Nevada Press, Reno, 2008. Hardcover. Condizione libro: New. 288 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. New book. HEALTH. Obesity is a major national health problem, and science has been developing a number of ways to address it. The most revolutionary is surgical intervention to alter the gastrointestinal system so that less food/nutrients can be consumed and/or absorbed. People who undergo this surgery usually experience drastic weight loss and dramatic health improvements. They also discover a new sense of self and face challenges often unimaginable when they were obese. Obesity Surgery is based on interviews with thirty-three gastric-bypass patients reflecting on life before and after surgery. Their accounts vividly describe the frustrations of limited mobility and energy, as well as the sometimes heartbreaking isolation the seriously overweight endure in a society that views excess poundage as a character flaw. The changes these patients encountered as their weight dropped were sometimes exhilarating, sometimes bewildering. They had to deal with varied reactions of family members and associates, complications of romance and dating, and a new self-image, and they had to confront the factors that made them obese in the first place, all the while following a severely restricted diet. And they often had to learn that some of the problems they had attributed to their obesity were still there after they lost weight. Using these interviews as a foundation, the authors summarize the typical path that most post-surgery patients follow. They also present a step-by-step program that will help individuals considering surgery or who have already had it anticipate and manage the many changes that lie ahead for them. Obesity Surgery is for people deliberating about whether or not to have weight-loss surgery and will prepare patients--along with their health-care professionals, families, and friends--for the plethora of psychological changes and social challenges that follow the surgery. It also offers the general public an insider's perspective on the emotional, physical, and social problems that often accompany severe obesity. A native of Madrid, Spain, Dr. Marta Meana has been researching psychosocial issues of relevance to women's health and sexuality for a decade. She obtained her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from McGill University in Montreal, completed a pre-doctoral internship in Behavioral Medicine and Outpatient Psychiatry at the University of California, San Diego and then a post-doctoral fellowship in Women's Health at the Toronto Hospital in Toronto, Canada. Dr. Lindsey Ricciardi was born and raised in Brooklyn, N.Y. She received her bachelor's degree from the University of Maine and a doctorate in clinical psychology from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Together with her husband Dominic, a bariatric physician, she runs an interdisciplinary weight management program, Creative Health Solutions, in Las Vegas, Nevada, where she serves as Director of Behavioral Health Services.
