I am obese and in my 20's. I'm thinking of getting the stomach operation. Which one is the safest and what can I do to keep the weight of for good?
Bariatric surgery : The lap band is the safest, though the bypass and sleeve are also safe if done by an experienced surgeon. There are a lot of factors that go into determining which procedure is the best for you. The operation you want to have may not be the best one for you.

Am obese.34 yr old female.weight,215 lbs.Height= 4'10''.looks like my stomach is bigger than norm?How can I tell if my tummy is bigger than my normal.
Possibly: Seeing as to how you've had a number of tests, including a mri, the complaint of a bloated abdomen is likely not to be serious, given your age and presumed lack of findings on mri.

I am obese and have a clear water like liquid leaking from "sores" in my stomach. Do you know what this might be?
Obese: in fold of stomach overhang the skin is fragile .Right now it is bleeding .What at this moment, what can I do ? Is liposecution ever paid by insurance to remove the excess skin due to bleeding, etc.
See your doctor: When skin is resected it is not liposuction. You may need a tummy tuck or if morbidly obese you may need the apron removed. See your doctor for a referral that is on your insurance list just in case there is a medical reason for the insurance to pay. The way the skin gets frail is usually due to lack of air and increased moisture which causes a yeast infection and that will need to be treated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
