Weight loss surgery can be a life-changing solution for those struggling with weight gain.
If you are considering a procedure to help you gain your life back, then it’s important to understand your options. Not all surgeries are the same, so it’s best to review your options and speak to a doctor who can help you determine the best solution for your situation.
By now, you may already be experiencing a general sense of hopelessness ...
We understand that obesity can be overwhelming in so many ways. It doesn’t just affect your health. It becomes a serious psychological, emotional and social problem as well.
If you’re ready to start enjoying life again and experiencing it to its fullest, then it’s time for you and your family to take a closer look at your medical options.
Remember: every situation is different. Below, we list some of the most common and effective bariatric weight loss surgery options available, along with general information on what they involve. But keep in mind that not all of them may be right for you.
By speaking with experienced staff and leading surgeons, you will be able to identify the right path for you.
In this procedure, a special band (known as the LAP-BAND® or Realize® Band) is positioned around the upper part of the stomach. This essentially divides the stomach into a small pouch, which holds a smaller amount of food, and a larger lower stomach.
The tightness of the band influences how much food you can eat before getting full. So, it effectively works to make you feel "full" sooner and for longer periods of time.
This bariatric surgery helps to restrict the amount of food you can eat with a thin, vertical sleeve of stomach, while a portion of the stomach is removed. This limits your food intake as it makes you feel full more quickly.
