However, factors like availability of low-cost alternatives, adoption of deceptive marketing strategies, and high cost of customized services are hindering growth.

Quick results of weight loss surgeries and insurance coverage have made bariatric surgeries popular among clinically obese people. However, the side-effects of weight loss surgeries have made people opt for non-invasive and non-medical methods of weight loss. As per the American Society for Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery, the total number of weight loss surgeries performed in the U.S. was 220,000 in 2012, likely to increase in the coming years due to the rising obesity rate. In Canadian hospitals, a total of 2,385 bariatric procedures were carried out in 2008-2009; it represented a 92% increase from 2004-2005.
