By resizing the stomach, weight loss surgeries help patients reduce the amount of food intake. Whenever a person over eats or consumes fatty food, the process results in patients having nausea and vomiting. The two most common procedures are:
ROUX EN Y GASTRIC BYPASS
A minimally invasive laparoscopic procedure that creates a tiny stomach pouch and bypassing a part of the intestine. This helps the patient restrict the amount of food intake that can be consumed, therefore, limiting the opportunity of food absorption.
Adjustable Gastric Band
A minimally invasive surgery, gastric banding is when your surgeon places a band around the upper part of the stomach creating a small upper part that fills earlier than the larger lower part, which, in turn makes you feel full. This procedure works on limiting the amount of food you consume and monitors through a port placed under the skin to ensure the right weight loss.
