Procedures like gastric bypasses have surged in modern times, with the number of hospital bariatric surgeries increasing 12 per cent in a year, the NHS Information Centre said
Some 8,087 weigh-loss stomach surgeries were undertaken in 2011, compared to 7,214 in the previous year.
The centre was quick to point out that this climb in procedures includes surgeries carried out to maintain existing gastric bands, rather than replacing them.
In fact, last year 1,444 weight-loss stomach surgeries were conducted for this reason, highlighting that medical solutions can involve revisits to the hospital.
Those aiming for the perfect bikini body this summer can look to a balanced diet and regular exercise to tone their tummies, rather than undergoing surgery that could result in repeat hospital appointments.
According to the report findings, the number of woman admitted to hospital with a primary diagnosis of obesity was almost three times higher than that of their male counterparts.
The rise in hospital admissions for people with obesity also increased by 1,003 from 10,571 in 2010, while in the past ten years they climbed from 11,574 to 12,628 - indicating the spiralling issue of obesity in the UK.
The highest number of admissions was concentrated in the north east of England, accounting for 40 per 100,000 of the population.
However, those in the south west, south central and north west had the lowest admission rate of 14 for every 100,000 of the population.
London remained relatively high, with 35 people per 100,000 admitted to hospital with a primary diagnosis of obesity.
A recent study conducted in Brazil showed 63 per cent of people who underwent bariatric surgery regained the weight within two years of the operation, the Daily Mail reported.
German research exhibited similar findings, with 30 per cent of patients piling the pounds back on between 18 and 36 months after the procedure.
