Winning the War Against Overweight/Obesity
It is a fact that obesity is a medical condition that needs to be properly addressed. However, there is no reason for you to continue with many diets and exhausting excercises. If all these have not worked in the past, then you can give it a shot to Weight Loss Surgery. Bariatric procedures cause weight loss by restricting the amount of food the stomach can hold. They practically change the function and shape of your digestive system. Weight Loss surgeries are nowadays performed using minimally invasive techniques (laparoscopic surgery).
The most common procedures are the Gastric Bypass and the Sleeve Gastrectomy:
Benefits of Gastric Bypass
The Gastric Bypass is also known as Roux-en-Y and is considered as the Gold Standard in Bariatric/Metabolic Surgery. This procedure guarantees significant long-term weight loss of approx. 60-80% in a couple of months. Its purpose is to restrict the amount of food that can be consumed. It produces favorable changes in gut hormones that reduce apetite. This is a laparoscopic procedure and is performed as follows:
- The Surgeon creates a small stomach pouch by dividing the top of the stomach from the rest of the stomach.
- The first portion of the small intestine is divided
- The bottom end of this small intestine is brought up and connected to the small stomach pouch
- The top portion is connected to the small intestine further down
- The stomach acids and digestive enzymes from the bypassed stomach and the first portion of small intestine will eventually mix with the food. Satiety will be enhanced with no more food craving. Consequently, weight loss will happen very quickly.
Benefits of Sleeve Gastrectomy
The Sleeve Gastrectomy is very popular because it improves type 2 diabetes, independent of the weight loss. This procedure is performed by removing approximately 80% of the stomach. The remaining stomach is a tubular pouch that resembles a banana. Sleeve Gastrectomy’s purpose is to restrict the amount of food the stomach can hold. Significant weight loss is quick and produces favorable changes in gut hormones that suppress hunger. The result is a reduced apetite with no food craving.
