Find a Solution that is Tailored to Suit You
Thanks to innovations and advances in technology, you have many options when it comes to bariatric surgery. Here are a couple.
Lap Band Surgery
The lap band is a procedure that is a minimally invasive option when considering a surgical alternative to lose weight. The lap band is preferable for many patients because it does not involve a permanent alteration of your stomach. In this less extreme procedure, a lap band that is made from silicone is placed over the upper portion of your stomach. This band can be inflated more or less according to your needs. The main goal is decrease the amount of food you eat while curbing your appetite at the same time.
You can also opt for the traditional alternative known as gastric bypass surgery. During this procedure, a small part of the stomach is sectioned off as a pouch and connected to the small intestine. The majority of the stomach is no longer a part of the intestinal tract. A smaller amount of food can be consumed, restricting calorie intake. The gastric sleeve is another, more involved procedure in which a surgeon alters the stomach, creating a narrow sleeve. The remainder of the stomach is actually removed. Patients will have less of an appetite and eat less.
It is your choice when considering a bariatric procedure. It’s your body and you need to be comfortable with your decision. Our caring medical staff will help you to keep your weight loss resolution.
