An effective way of losing weight and resolving obesity-related health problems
Over the past decade, obesity surgery has been continuously refined to improve results and reduce risks. Weight loss surgery, also called obesity surgery or bariatric surgery, can be a very effective way of losing weight. These terms are used in order to reflect the impact of these operations on patients’ weight and the health of their metabolism (breakdown of food into energy). Obesity surgery can help achieving significant weight loss and resolve obesity-related health problems, such as type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea or hypertension. There are various surgical options based on restricting the amount of food you can consume, or reducing the ability to absorb nutrients, or a mixed-method of both. Obesity surgery can be a life-saving option for people with severe obesity, but at the same time it is a crucial procedure that poses certain risks and side effects. We perform an extensive evaluation with a multidisciplinary team of experts before initiating a obesity surgery to ensure that each patient receives the medical procedure that is right for him/her.

There are various options for obesity surgery. Most preferred obesity surgeries today are Gastric Balloon, Sleeve Gastrectomy, and Gastric Bypass. For more information about obesity surgery methods, you can look at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bariatric_surgery

The Gastric Balloon is the non-surgical weight loss alternative for people who want an intense period of weight loss and who understand that they must keep to a sensible eating programme after the removal of their balloon. We design and place a gastric balloon in your stomach to induce weight loss. By the ballon partially filling your stomach, you will get less hungry and feel fuller quicker. The Gastric Balloon is a revolutionary and simple way to lose weight and change your relationship with food forever. Many patients have lost significant amount of weight working with a gastric balloon. You will be guided and supported by our professionally qualified team who will give you the dedicated individual care that you need to achieve significant weight loss.
The Gastric Band is a small inflatable band that fits around the top of your stomach to restrict your food intake and control your hunger. When the band is inflated it creates a small upper stomach pouch and a narrowed outlet, limiting the stomach’s capacity to intake food and increasing the feeling of fullness. The combination of these two effects results in significant weight loss. The gastric band has been used in hundreds of thousands of patients for many years, and it is obvious that this method is safe, effective, well-tolerated, easily reversed, doesn’t require invasive surgery, and associated with few complications in experienced hands. The Gastric Band is a powerful tool that allows you to gain control of your weight. If you have tried every diet and weight loss programme but have continually failed in your attempts, the Gastric Band could be the solution to your problem.
Obesity Surgery: Gastric Bypass
The gastric bypass is a more complicated procedure and involves the creation of a small pouch at the top of the stomach with staples. The remaining stomach stays in place. A section of the intestine is plumbed into this pouch so that the food bypasses the rest of the stomach and enters the intestine’s lower part. It is very effective for weight loss and may be the best option for diabetes and acid reflux. You can expect to lose 30 – 35% of your total body weight during treatment. We usually see an almost immediate resolution of type 2 diabetes, and high blood pressure is often improved as well. This works very well for patients with BMI over 35, as well as those with type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure.
Sleeve Gastrectomy (Gastric Sleeve)
The Gastric Sleeve is an ideal procedure for people who want a long-term surgical option but prefer not to have an implanted device. This is an exciting weight loss option combines many of the advantages of a gastric band with those of a gastric bypass. It works by removing a portion of the stomach to reduce its size by around 80%. The resulting decrease in capacity leads to substantial weight loss. Results of this operation may differ from person to person and will not be the same for everyone. A Sleeve Gastrectomy (or gastric sleeve) is an operation to reduce the size of the stomach. This is achieved by stapling the stomach along its length and removing the excess portion, leaving a long tube or sleeve. Although the shape of the stomach is drastically changed, it still continues functioning normally, albeit the quantity of food consumed will be considerably less. The gastric sleeve is an excellent choice of treatment if your BMI is over 35 and you have been able to lose weight in the past but have found it impossible to maintain that loss in the long term.
Obesity Surgery: Gastric Plication
Laparoscopic gastric plication is a newer minimally invasive weight-loss surgery technique that reduces the size of the stomach capacity. It is a restrictive weight-loss surgery, meaning that it restricts the amount of food the stomach can hold. Gastric Plication is an exciting advancement in the field of weight loss surgery. It is a restrictive procedure that reduces the size of the stomach in a minimally invasive way that does not involve any cutting. By creating an internal fold, the stomach’s capacity is reduced by about 85%. By decreasing the size of your stomach, the amount of food you can consume is considerably reduced. You will experience a feeling of fullness after eating only a small portion of food and that feeling of fullness will last for longer.
Obesity Surgery: Revision Surgery
Revision weight loss surgery is a surgical procedure that is performed on patients who have already undergone a weight loss procedure and have either had complications from the surgery or have not successfully achieved significant weight loss results from the initial surgery. Revision procedures are usually performed laparoscopically, though open surgery may be required sometimes if prior obesity surgery has resulted in extensive scarring. With the increase in the number of weight loss procedures performed every year, there are growing numbers of individuals who have experienced an unsatisfactory result from their procedure. If you have had previous surgery your choice of revisional surgery may be limited but certainly worth investigating.
