Weight Loss (Bariatric) Surgery
Bariatric surgery ( weight loss surgery ) includes a variety of procedures performed on people who have obesity. Weight loss is achieved by reducing the size of the stomach with a gastric band or through the removal of a portion of the stomach. Batab seyr Iranian CO. offer best clinic and professional doctors in Iran to perform your Weight loss procedure. Gastric banding used to be the hottest weight loss surgery in the world, but in recent years, the gastric sleeve has surged to the top—and those are just two of the many procedures designed to help us shed pounds and get healthier.
Gastric sleeve surgery
Top-Weight-Loss-Surgery-Procedures This is the most commonly performed weight loss surgery today largely because it’s the most effective with the lowest risk of complications. What’s involved? “We go in laparoscopically through five tiny incisions or a single incision in the belly button and cut out 70 to 80 percent of the stomach so that it looks like a sleeve,” says Dr. Imani. “You feel full quicker, and there are marked decreases in levels of ghrelin, also known as the hunger hormone,” he says. “My patients are simply not hungry and have to remind themselves to eat.” Benefits: “You can lose up to 70 percent of your excess weight in a year,” Dr. Imani says. There are also improvements, if not reversals, in some of the conditions linked to obesity such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and sleep apnea. Still, “surgery is just a tool, not a cure.” Some things to know about weight-loss procedures in general: If they involve surgery, they carry the typical risks of excessive bleeding, infection, blood clots, and a potentially bad reaction to anesthesia. Depending on the nature of the surgery, risks can include gallstones, hernia, and stomach perforation. And because the operations can block the absorption of certain foods and nutrients, you may need to take nutritional supplements. To qualify for these procedures, you must have a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or greater, be roughly 100 pounds’ overweight, or have a BMI of at least 35 and one or more obesity-related issues, such as diabetes or high cholesterol. In case you’re wondering, here’s what you need to know about BMI.
Gastric banding or lap band surgery was the hottest weight loss procedure for years, but it has fallen out of favor. In 2011, bands represented 35.4 percent of all weight loss surgeries; in 2016, they made up just 3.4 percent, according to statistics from the ASBMS. What’s involved? Your surgeon places a silicone band with an inflatable inner collar around your upper stomach to restrict how much you can eat. Benefits: The band is reversible and adjustable with saline fills. You may lose up to two or three pounds a week in the first year after the surgery, but one pound a week is the average.
Gastric bypass was once the gold standard of weight loss surgery. What’s involved? In simple terms, your surgeon staples a part of your stomach to curb food intake and then re-routes a Y-shaped part of the small intestine so it attaches to the stomach pouch and food can bypass the duodenum (the first part of the small intestine). The Roux-en-Y bypass is the most common form of gastric bypass surgery. Benefits: You will lose 60 to 80 percent of your excess weight, the ASBMS states. One man’s journey after gastric bypass ranks as one of the most inspirational weight-loss transformations of 2017. SIPS What’s involved? SIPS involves the creation of a sleeve that is larger than the typical gastric sleeve with an attachment below the pyloric valve to control the emptying of the stomach into the midgut. Benefits: “It’s not as drastic as the sleeve surgery, yet weight loss is comparable,” he says. Preserving the pyloric valve prevents the rapid rise and fall of blood sugar. This valve controls the flow of partially digested food from the stomach to the small intestine.
What’s involved? Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty is basically gastric sleeve surgery without surgery. During the procedure, a flexible tube with a camera and an endoscopic suturing device attached is inserted down your throat into your stomach. The tiny camera allows the doctor to see inside your stomach, and create the sleeve using sutures sans incisions. Benefits: Studies show an average weight loss of 39 pounds after six months, with a weight loss of 42 pounds at a year. There are also significantly fewer complications and shorter hospital stays compared with gastric sleeve and gastric banding, according to research data presented at the scientific conference Digestive Disease Week 2017. Also, it may be available to people not heavy enough to qualify for other procedures: If your BMI is above 30 and you’ve been unable to lose using diet and other methods, endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty may be an option, Mayo researchers suggest.
Benefits: “The data been pretty good, and it’s the only thing that holds a candle to the efficacy with bariatric surgery, but most people find this to be a non-starter,” Dr. Kashfi says. The reality of dumping your stomach after every meal can be off-putting for many people.
What’s involved? One or more balloons are placed into your stomach by swallowing or a minor procedure where they take up space in your stomach, reducing how much you can eat. They stay in place for up to six months. “You feel full quicker and learn portion control,” he says. “It’s a great jump start for a diet and is paired with nutritional counseling,” Dr. Garber says. Balloons stay in place for up to six months before they are removed. Expect regular follow-up throughout the process. Benefits: “These are great options for people with a BMI of 30 to 40,” says Dr. Imani. (The Obalon system changed this dad’s life.) “I’ve done about 750 of these, and patients lose an average of 36 to 90 pounds,” he says.
