Types of Weight Loss Surgery
There are 3 primary types of weight loss surgery used today.
1. Gastric bypass – the bariatric surgeon creates a small pouch in the stomach and connects it lower down in the small intestine. This bypasses part of the stomach and upper region of the small intestine.
2. Adjustable band – The weight loss surgeon creates a pouch in the stomach by placing an adjustable band properly.
3. Gastric Sleeve – The bariatric surgeon removes around 75 percent of the stomach which creates a much slimmer-shaped stomach.
Discuss with your bariatric surgeon, the pros and cons of all these latest weight loss medical procedures. You will need to know that with each method, there is a change in lifestyle that must occur on your part to fully reach your weight loss potential following surgery. The obesity surgery risks are many, but if you go in prepared ahead of time, it can make a big difference in the success of your operation. I would also recommend checking out more than one obesity clinic. There are many good weight loss clinics that can offer you all the best of the 3 types of weight loss surgery listed above.
