Weight Loss Surgery For Me

Weight loss surgery, otherwise called bariatric surgery, consists of a number of operative procedures that cause significant and long lasting weight loss.

Such procedures are broadly classified into two categories:
1. Purely restrictive procedures - these are limited to reducing the size of the stomach which result in early fullness and a suppression of appetite.  Examples include the adjustable gastric band ('Lap Band'), sleeve gastrectomy or the banded gastroplasties (no longer performed).

2. Combined restrctive and malabsorptive procedures - here the procedure not only reduces the size of the stomach, but the small intestinal loops are re-routed resulting in a varying degree of malabsorption.  This combination results in a much more powerful operation that can markedly improve or even cure diabetes.  Such procedures include the gastric bypass, duodenal switch and bilio-pancreatic diversion.

Weight loss surgery is not the same as liposuction!  As a matter of fact, liposuction has few of the health benefits associated with weight loss surgery.
