OBESITY SURGERY METHODS
The most common obesity surgery procedures are;
Gastric balloon is basically a non-surgical slimming application that reduces the food intake capacity of the stomach. The most basic fact to know about the operation is that the gastric balloon is not an operation, that is, the application is one of the non-surgical weight loss methods.
It is performed endoscopically, not surgically, and is not as extensive as surgery. The main point is to help the person lose weight and to reach their ideal weight much more easily. The gastric balloon, also known as the slimming balloon, is a silicone balloon and provides a feeling of satiety with a much smaller amount of food.
Stomach Botox; It is the process of injecting the classical botox method endoscopically into the determined areas of the stomach, including the fundus region where the hunger hormone is released. Botox substance limits the contraction of the muscles in the area where it is injected, thus delaying the emptying time of the stomach. The fact that the stomach is full for a long time will also balance the appetite problem.
Gastric bypass surgery, also called Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, is done in three steps. First, the surgeon staples your stomach, creating a small pouch in the upper section. The staples make your stomach much smaller, so you eat less because you feel full sooner.
Next, the surgeon divides your small intestine into two parts and attaches the lower part directly to the small stomach pouch. Food will bypass most of your stomach and the upper part of your small intestine, so your body absorbs fewer calories.
The surgeon then reconnects the upper part of the small intestine to a new location farther down on the lower part of the small intestine. This relocating allows digestive juices in the stomach to flow from the bypassed section of the small intestine to the lower part of the small intestine. Therefore, food can be fully digested. Patient appetite and metabolism may affect because the bypass changes the hormones, bacteria, and other substances in the gastrointestinal tract. Gastric bypass is difficult to reverse, although a surgeon may do it if medically necessary.
Gastric sleeve surgery is performed by removing approximately 80 percent of the stomach. The remaining stomach is in the form of a tubular sac reminiscent of a banana. Surgery reduces the amount of food that can fit in your stomach, making you feel full faster. Surgery has a major impact on gut hormones that affect various factors such as hunger, satiety, and blood sugar control.
After losing most of the excess weight, most patients may have some loose or sagging skin. For many patients, this might be just temporary. The degree of loose or sagging skin depends upon several things, including how much weight you lose, your age, your genetics, and whether or not you exercise or smoke. Generally, many patients can hide loose skin through clothing or compression garments. We generally recommend waiting for at least 18 months before having plastic surgery.
