How does weight loss surgery work?
The principle of this weight loss surgery is to confine the intake of food and drink and to limit the absorption of the food in the intestine. This reduction of nutrients and calorie absorption enables the patient to lose weight. In this modern medical era, some teens and adults are potential patients for a minimally invasive laparoscopic bariatric surgery. This is more advantageous than the other types of weight loss surgery options.
Laparoscopic Bariatric surgery (weight-loss surgery) includes a variety of procedures performed on people who are obese. This weight loss operation proceeds by reducing the size of the stomach with an implanted medical device (gastric banding) or through removal of a portion of the stomach (sleeve gastrectomy) or by resecting and re-routing the small intestines to a small stomach pouch (gastric bypass surgery).
In the trail conducted by Swedish prospective, patients with (BMI) 34 or more for men and 38 or more for women underwent various types of bariatric surgery and were followed for an average of 11 years. Surgery patients had a 23.7% reduction in mortality (5.0% vs. 6.3% control).
