Obesity is one of the most significant diseases around the world. While obesity has a substantial impact on people’s health, it also has a strong effect on our looks. Many people who are overweight have a risk of obesity. Unfortunately, not all people can lose weight by following a diet and doing exercises. Different types of problems cancause this situation, but most are due to not controlling the amount of food people consume. Obesity surgery types are beneficial for those who suffer from overweight and can’t lose weight by following a diet no matter how hard they try. Because people who got used to eating unnecessary amounts of food fail to lower the amount of food they consume mostly. With obesity surgeries, people’s stomach decreases to a smaller portion to hold the food they consume. With that, patients feel full after eating just enough amount of food.
Obesity Surgery Options
There are some different types of obesity surgery procedures. Even if those types of surgeries’ aims are the same, the method they follow is different. If you would like to have an obesity surgery, you and your doctor should decide which operation is better for you together. There are three main types of surgeries for obesity. These are gastrectomy, adjustable gastric banding, and gastric bypass.
The procedure goes by the surgeon removing a big part of the stomach of the patient. After removing the excessive amount of the stomach, the surgeon closes the remaining part. After the surgery, the patient will have a smaller stomach, and it will help the patient feel full after eating just enough amount of food.
Adjustable Gastric Banding
The surgeon puts a silicon band in the patient’s stomach, which prevents them from eating an excessive amount of food. The positive side of this surgery is that the band’s tightness is adjustable.
The surgeon creates a pouch in the patient’s stomach that the pouch’s space will be enough for the patient to consume the only necessary amount of food.
