Placing an adjustable gastric band:
Laparoscopy or imposing an adjustable gastric band or lap-band is a surgical way of losing weight. The surgeon uses an inflatable device to divide the patient’s stomach into 2 parts: Upper small pouch and a bigger part below it. In order to limit the evacuation pace rate in the upper pouch, these parts are connected to each other by a narrow duct. Patients of this method could only consume from ½ to 1 cup (Equivalent to 236ml) amount of food per day. The food must be soft and well chewed.
Sleeve or Gastrectomy:
Another minimally invasive technique is called sleeve gastrectomy. In this procedure, the surgeon will remove approximately 75% of your stomach, what remains is a sleeve-like tube which is connected to the intestines. Sometimes gastrectomy suffices patients’ needs, in other cases it is just the initial stage to a bigger procedure.
Gastric bypass (Roux-en-Y Method):
One of the most current barbaric methods among patients is Roux-en-Y Bypass, it is a combination of laparoscopic and malabsorption technique. In this procedure, the surgeon will bisect your stomach but this time without any relativity between these two halved parts, the upper part is then directly grafted to the end of the small intestine. Bypassing some parts of the stomach and small intestine, creates a shortcut for food, this means that the body will absorb fewer calories.
