Health experts say that a person of obesity may undergo an obesity surgery, which includes –
A. Restrictive Procedures: The Lap Gastric band
It is a good way of reducing obesity. The surgery works by reducing the amount of food consumed at one time. The surgery is simple to understand because of the restriction created. The patient feels satiated with small amounts of food and smaller outlet, food remains in the stomach for a longer time. It results with reducing daily caloric intake without a feeling of deprivation.
B. Combined procedures: Roux -En- Y Gastric Bypass
It is a procedure helps alter digestion and known as malabsorptive. By this way surgeons reduce the intestine length that comes in contact with food and allow the body to absorb fewer calories. In the malabsorption procedure, stapling is supposed to create a small, 15 to 20cc, stomach pouch. Experts staple shuts the reminder of the stomach completely and divide it from the stomach pouch. They do not remove it completely.
The outlet from this newly formed pouch empties directly into the lower portion of the jejunum, called the Roux limb, and thus eliminates the duodenum and a small portion of the jejunum from the absorptive circuit. Then the omitted segment is connected into the side of the Roux limb of the intestine, which creates the “Y” shape. The doctors then adjust the length of either segment of the intestine so that it can produce lower or higher levels of malabsorption.
Therefore, if you are suffering from obesity, you can directly consult a reputed doctor, he can advise you if obesity surgery is needed or not. There are many hospitals in the country, you can have the surgery and reduce obesity.
