WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY

According to research, obesity-related health conditions such as type 2 diabetes, obstructive sleep apnea, high blood pressure, osteoarthritis, and other obesity-related diseases may benefit from bariatric surgery. If you meet any of the following conditions, you can be a candidate for bariatric surgery:

Types of Weight Loss Surgeries

  • Restrictive surgery works by reducing the size of the stomach and slowing digestion. A typical stomach can store about 3 liters of food. After surgery, the stomach may contain less than an ounce at first, but then it can increase to 2 or 3 ounces. If your stomach is small, you can eat less. The less you eat, the faster you lose weight.

  • Surgery that alters your ability to absorb nutrients is known as malabsorption / restrictive surgery. They reduce the size of the stomach and remove or cut off part of the digestive system, making it difficult for the body to absorb nutrients. Because of the risks, doctors rarely perform a complete malabsorption procedure called bowel bypass surgery.
  • The implantation of an electrical device, the last of the three procedures, results in weight loss by blocking nerve signals between the stomach and the brain.

Sleeve Gastrectomy

It is another type of restrictive surgery for weight loss. During surgery, the surgeon removes approximately 75% of the abdomen. It is replaced- by a small tube or arm that connects the stomach and the intestines.

Advantages

Other weight-loss operations can be very dangerous__ for very obese or sick people. Sleeve gastrectomy is a less invasive procedure that allows a person__ to lose weight with less risk. If they need to lose weight and improve their health, they may have a second operation__ usually a gastric bypass operation, which takes 12 to 18 months.

An arm gastrectomy does not change the body's food intake because the intestines are not affected- so you are less likely to feel hungry.

Disadvantages

Sleeve gastrectomy is permanent, unlike gastric bands. Infections arm leaks, and blood clots are common hazards.

Gastric Bypass Surgery (Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass)

Restrictive and malabsorptive methods are combined- in gastric bypass surgery.

During the procedure, the surgeon splits the abdomen in two and closes the upper part. The upper stomach is then closed directly by the surgeon in the lower segment of the small intestine.

The surgeon creates a shortcut through part of the stomach and small intestine. Many parts of the digestive system pass, the body receives fewer calories.

Advantages

Weight loss is usually rapid, and significant__ about half appear in the first six months. It may take up to two years after the operation. Obesity-related diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, arthritis, sleep apnea, and heartburn improve quickly after weight loss.

The long-term results of gastric bypass surgery are also favorable. Studies show that most people can maintain most of their body weight for ten years.

Disadvantages

You won't be able to eat like before you may not have enough food. Lack of calcium and iron can lead to osteoporosis and anemia. For the rest of your life, you will need to be very careful with your diet- and supplements.

Another risk of gastric bypass surgery is dumping syndrome, which occurs when food moves too quickly from the stomach into the intestines before it is properly digested. And 85% of people with gastric bypass surgery experience some loss. Nausea, bloating, restlessness, sweating, weakness, and diarrhea are some of the symptoms. Eating sugary or carbohydrate-rich foods can often lead to dumping and help you change your diet.

Gastric bypass, unlike adjustable gastric binding, is considered irreversible. In some cases, it has been reversed.

Gastric bypass is riskier because it is difficult. Like any other procedure, infection and blood clots are dangerous. Hernias are also more common after gastric bypass surgery, which may require additional surgery to repair. You may also have gallstones due to rapid weight loss.

Gastric Banding

Gastric banding is a type of restrictive bariatric surgery. ‚Äč

The abdomen is divided_ into two parts by the surgeon using an elastic band: the smaller upper pouch and the larger lower pouch. The two sides are still connected_ by a small channel that slows the emptying of the top bag. Most people can only eat 1/2-1 cup before they become anxious or sick. Soft or well-chewed foods are also needed.

Advantages

This procedure is less complicated and less risky than gastric bypass and other processes. It will be a smaller scar- it will heal faster, and the dressing can be surgically removed.

You can also get the band adjusted in a doctor's office. The doctor injects more saline solution into the bandage to tighten it and further limit the size of the stomach. The doctor removes the liquid from the tape using a needle to loosen it.

Disadvantages

People who have gastric bypass surgery mostly lose less weight than those who have other surgeries. They are also more likely to regain the weight they lost over time.

Vomiting after a very quick meal is one of the most common side effects of gastritis' It can be emptied, emptied, or emptied. Some people will need additional procedures. There is a possibility of infection with any process. Although some results are rare, they can be life-threatening.

Vagal Blockade

The vagus nerve, which tells the brain that the stomach is full, receives regular electrical impulses from a device similar to an implanted pacemaker. The vagus nerve runs from the brain to the stomach. The blocking device is mounted below the ribs and controlled by an adjustable remote control from outside the body.

Advantages

The least invasive weight loss surgery is the implantation of this device. While the patient is under general anesthesia, outpatient surgery can take up to 1.5 hours.

Disadvantages

If the battery dies completely, it must be reprogrammed- by a doctor. Possible side effects include nausea, vomiting, heartburn, difficulty swallowing, belching, mild nausea, and chest pain.

Infection, pain at the implant site, or other surgical problems are possible consequences. There is a small risk of significant problems with this surgery.

Biliopancreatic Diversion

It is a more extreme form of gastric bypass. The surgeon can remove 70% of your stomach and bypass part of the small intestine.

Biliopancreatic deviation with duodenal transition or "duodenal transition" is a less acute form. It is even more complicated than gastric bypass but diversifies biliopancreatic while removing the stomach and small intestine. Dumping syndrome, malnutrition, and ulcers are less common than traditional biliopancreatic shunting.

Advantages

Biliopancreatic bypass can help your weight loss more effectively and faster than gastric bypass surgery. Although most stomachs remove the bladder that forms during gastric bypass or dressing treatment becomes larger. As a result of this procedure, you can eat more food than other people.

Disadvantages

Gastric bypass is more common than biliopancreatic diversification. One explanation is that the consequences of an inadequate diet are even direr. The same dangers of gastric bypass apply to dumping syndrome. However, the duodenal transition can reduce some of these hazards.

It is one of the difficult and dangerous weight loss procedures. This surgery, like gastric bypass surgery, carries a high risk of hernia' which requires additional surgery. However, "the risk is minimized when doctors use a minimally invasive method (called laparoscopy).
