Obesity surgeries

Obesity surgeries

Sleeve gastrectomy:

It is a surgical procedure that greatly reduces the size of the stomach by removing a large portion of the stomach (proximally 80%) along the greater curvature (the funds) leaving the stomach shaped like a tube. As a result, the amount of food the patient can eat is restricted causing weight loss. Another effect is that a degree of malabsorption may happen after the surgery which also helps in the weight loss process. The hunger will also decrease as the funds secrete the “ghrelin “hormone which is responsible for feeling hungry.

Gastric bypass:

The goal of this operation is to modify the stomach and intestines to treat obesity and related diseases.
The surgeon makes a small pouch from the stomach and connects the newly created pouch directly to the small intestine. This means it takes less food to make you feel full and you’ll absorb fewer calories from the food you eat. Gastric bypass can help you improve your body’s ability to achieve a healthy weight.

Gastric Botox injections:

It is a minimally invasive procedure that makes the stomach muscles relax, causing them to contract less, and that will lead to feeling full for a longer time thus eating less and helping you lose weight!
this procedure is ideal for patients aiming to lose 10-15 Kgs of their weight.
The injection lasts 4 – 5 months then you can repeat the procedure if needed

Gastric Balloon:

It is an affordable, quick and non-surgical procedure in which an inflatable silicone balloon is inserted into your stomach to occupy space and limit the food carrying capacity of the stomach.
This makes you feel full sooner and limits your intake to smaller portions. The procedure is temporary and the balloon is usually removed after 6 months.
