“OBESITY” is prevalent among the young generation and the major causes of obesity are found as not eating at the proper time, in taking junk foods, adding more sugary items, sedentary lifestyle, lack of exercise and the hereditary. Even after following strict diet regimen with proper exercise, one fails to lose weight, then the person may go for Bariatric Surgery to obtain healthy weight as well to rescue from heart, diabetic, sleep apnea, high cholesterol, and hypertension problems.
Bariatric surgery causes weight loss by restricting the amount of food the stomach can hold, causing nutrients malabsorption or gastric restriction or both. Most of the weight loss surgeries are performed in a minimally invasive procedure, laparoscopic surgery. Gastric bypass, adjustable gastric band, sleeve Gastrectomy, Biliopancreatic diversion with a duodenal switch are the common bariatric surgeries. Let us see some of the procedures in brief.
Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy: In this procedure, 85% of the stomach is removed leaving a sleeve-shaped stomach. With surgical staples, the new stomach is closed. This procedure can be done either as an open surgery or laparoscopic. Since a part of the stomach is removed, the procedure remains permanent.
Biliopancreatic diversion or BPD: A Biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch gastric bypass is quite identical to sleeve Gastrectomy. A part of the stomach is removed and a small portion of the stomach remains. The first portion of the small intestine is divided at the stomach outlet and distal segment is connected to the new stomach.
Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding: Upper part of the stomach is wrapped with a silicone band with saline to create a small pouch above the band. Below the band are the rest of the stomach remains. With the less consumption of food patients feel satiated. After surgery, the opening size can be adjusted by adding or removing saline from the band through a dock under the skin. 40-50% of weight loss is experienced by the patients in this procedure.
