Different Types OF Weight Loss Surgery

Weight loss surgery is becoming increasingly popular and preferred by many people.

There are various types of this kind of surgery (including adjustable gastric banding and vertical banded gastroplasty), all of which involve using a variety of techniques or devices to cut off parts of the stomach or intestinal tract to reduce the amount of food that can be digested or processed at one time. You can also choose balloon fat loss surgical treatment by taking consultation with the best doctor.

Complications with many and varied operations – the gastric band will slip in 30% of cases and vomiting is common with this procedure.

A Biliopancreatic Diversion (where part of the stomach will be removed) leads to diarrhea and 10% will experience edema, hair loss, ulcers, or protein malnutrition. Patients who successfully undergo this procedure will require a lifetime of nutritional supplementation to avoid malnutrition.

Intragastric balloon: A balloon placed in the stomach. The surgeon inflates it so that the patient constantly feels full. The balloon can only remain for 6 months during which time it could leak or burst.

Jaw wiring: Jaws are wired together to make eating difficult – but people find ways to get their calories in sugary, liquid form. Jaw wiring as a method of weight control has now largely gone out of fashion.

Liposuction: As the name suggests, this is a surgical procedure in which suction is applied to remove subcutaneous fat.
