Weight Loss Surgery

Weight loss surgeries are effective methods for losing unwanted weight. Unfortunately, losing weight is not as easy as the weight loss industry would have us believe. There is no shortage of products and treatments promise weight loss miracles but usually fail to deliver. Rather than wasting time and money with frivolous treatments, diets, and products, consider weight loss surgeries and procedures. Read on to learn about Gastric Bypass, Gastric Sleeve, and the non-surgical weight loss option Orbera Gastric Balloon and discover which is right for you.

Gastric Bypass

Gastric Bypass surgery changes how your stomach and small intestine handle any food you intake. There are two major steps to this weight loss surgery. The first step involves making your stomach smaller. A surgeon divides the stomach into an upper and lower section (the upper being smaller and the lower being larger). The food you eat will only go into the upper section, which allows you to feel fuller quicker and assist in losing weight. The second step involves a surgical adjustment to the small intestine. The small intestine is connected to a hole in the upper stomach for the food to travel through. This allows the body to absorb fewer calories.

Gastric Sleeve

Gastric Sleeve surgery involves surgical removal of part of the stomach. The remaining stomach sections are joined together to make a new ‘sleeve’ which is banana-sized. What is left is small, about 1/10th of your original stomach. With this surgery, you feel fuller quicker, and you won’t be able to eat as much as you used to. This helps tremendously with weight loss efforts. However, your eating habits have to be altered permanently, and it takes time for you to transition back into eating solid foods.

Orbera Gastric Balloon

Orbera Gastric Balloon is a non-surgical, less invasive weight loss procedure. A surgeon carefully and expertly inserts a smooth, silicone balloon inside your stomach through the mouth. Once inside, the balloon is inflated with saline until it is the size of a grapefruit. As the Orbera balloon takes up space in your stomach, you feel fuller sooner and eat less. Weight loss will quickly and naturally follow. Orbera remains in the body for 6 months. During that time, a team of specialists helps you adopt healthier habits and weight control. After 6 months, the balloon is removed the same way it was placed. Orbera is a great non-surgical alternative to Gastric Bypass and Gastric Sleeve.
