Waheguru Ji ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji ki Fateh! No, having the operation, per se, is not wrong. I know several people who have done it and it has improved their lives a lot. How is having this surgery not being responsible? Actually, it is being very responsible. It is a direct action to help yourself.

There are many factors that contribute to weight gain and you have identified some of them in your question. Understand, that depression, loneliness and lack of self-confidence will not go away with the surgery. Understand as well that you will have a significant recovery period, after which you will be able to eat no more than 225 gm of food per meal and no fizzy drinks. Your diet will change.

That said, the underlying emotional issues must be dealt with through strong daily sadhana and company of the Sadhsangat.
