First, what is the most common weight loss procedures?

  • gastric bypass

–  20 years ago, was the starting point, it is done by reducing the stomach size by cutting across the top of the stomach then attaches the pouch to the small intestine so that food bypasses the stomach and enters directly into the small intestine, Surgical staples are used in place of traditional stitches that help to prevent leaking and post-surgery complications.

– It takes about two hours using general anesthesia and then spend between 2 to 3 days in the hospital.

– Done by placing an inflatable silicone band around the stomach to create a small pouch towards the top. It works on slowing down food consumption and limiting the food that the body need.

– A small tube connects the gastric band; this is how the band can be tightened after surgery. it is placed just beneath the surface of the skin, through this, a saline solution can be inserted into the band to expand it, thus increasing the size of the stomach further over time which help to lose more weight.

– It takes about two hours using general anesthesia and then spend between 2 to 3 days in the hospital.

– Has had FDA approval for less than four years, it is done by removing a large part of the stomach so it’s much smaller than it was before with no redirecting of the intestines is needed. It helps lose the weight by limiting the quantity of food that body is able to take in.

– It takes about two hours using general anesthesia and then spend between 2 to 3 days in the hospital.

  • Endoscopic intragastrical Balloon(Gastric Balloon)

– A gastric balloon is a balloon filled with air or salt water that is inserted into the stomach using a thin tube passed down the throat. Which reduce the size of the stomach and the amount of food that the body takes in, thus reducing weight.

– The balloon is left for maximum of 6 months, then it is taken out.

  • Duodenal Switch Surgery

– complex procedure to lose weight, it is done by removing 60% to 70% of the stomach so that the stomach takes the shape of a tube, then divide the lower intestine much further downstream than with gastric bypass so that two thirds or more of the intestine is bypassed, leaving only a few feet of intestine where food and digestive enzymes meet.
