However, for the sake of information we've listed a few options below to give you an idea of the services provided:
Types of Weight Loss Surgery
Some bariatric procedures are performed using general anesthesia via a midline abdominal incision. Some bariatric surgeons also use laparoscopic surgical techniques, involving long instruments connected to cameras through which they view the operational site. The two types of obesity weight loss surgery are (1) restrictive - like Lap Band®, and (2) combined restrictive and mal-absorptive - such as Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. The first type of surgical procedure simply reduces the size of the stomach, using staples and/or a band, resulting in a drastic reduction in the quantity of food it can ingest. The second reduces stomach capacity and bypasses the upper part of the small intestine, causing a reduction in the number of calories and nutrients which the body absorbs. Stomach bypass operations differ in both how the stomach is sectioned (stapling, banding or gastrectomy), and how much of the duodenum and jejunum are bypassed. Currently, most obesity clinics and bariatric centers favor the Vertical Sleeve surgery, Lap Band adjustable gastric banding procedure and the Proximal Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass.
