Problems associated with being over obese are diabetes, heart disease, mental stress and other serious conditions like menstrual problem in women. But nowadays there are many weight loss surgeries to keep u healthy and get rid of being over obesity.Weightloss surgery is usually performed for the people who are having BMI ratio 35 and above and in some cases for the people who are suffering from heavy diabetes and heart diseases. So let’s see about types of weight loss surgeries that can be performed for obese people.
Bariatric surgery is one of the most efficient surgeries which provide long lasting weight loss solution. Bariatric surgery restricts the intake of food normally by flinching the size of the abdomen with gastric banding or through the deduction of small portion of stomach or by resetting and re-routing the small intestines to a small stomach pouch. It can have long term effects if the patient follows the post-operative instructions strictly. After successful bariatric surgery, health problems such as high blood pressure, diabetes, orthopaedic problems and other health issues will begin to diminish.
Sleeve Gastrectomy, or gastric sleeve,here a thin, vertical sleeve of stomach is created and the rest of the stomach is removed by surgical procedures. The open edges are then wrapped together typically with surgical staples, sutures, or both to leave the stomach shaped more like a tube, or a sleeve, with a banana shape. The procedure permanently reduces the size of the abdomen. This combined approach has tremendously decreased the risk of weight loss surgery for particular groups of patients, even when the risk of the two surgeries is added. Most patients can expect to lose 30 to 50% of their excess body weight over a 6–12 month period with the sleeve gastrectomy alone.
Gastric Banding is another best solution for permanent fat loss which involves a minimal continual procedure. The surgeon uses simple techniques like laparoscopy to make little cuts, using a protracted device, called laparoscope, which implants an inflatable silicone band or which is also called lap band, around the upper abdomen region. This band helps in monitoring the intake of food, thus helps in avoiding high food consumption, which can helps the patient to attain normal weight. It doesn't involve cutting or stapling. Plus, given that it is done through a laparoscopic approach it results in reduced post-operative pain and a quick recovery. And the most tremendous thing about this process is that it is a reversible procedure. As soon as the band is removed the stomach returns to its normal size. So people no need to worry about any side effects after surgery, it is purely safe and reasonable for all common people.
