Gastric sleeve is a surgical weight-loss procedure also known as “Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy”. In this surgery, almost 80% of the stomach is taken out, and a tube-shaped stomach that appears like a regular size banana is left.
Gastric sleeve surgery helps you to avoid some risk factors due to being overweight:
Gastric sleeve surgery is suggested only to patients who have tried diet and exercise for a long time but failed to lose weight.
Gastric balloon, also known as “intragastric balloon” (IGB) or sometimes a “stomach balloon”, is a medical device that is placed in a patient’s stomach temporarily to make the patient feels full with less food. In this way, weight loss is aimed at the operation.
This might be an option for you if you have tried diet and exercise for a long time but can not reach your goals in terms of losing weight.
On the other hand, even after having a gastric balloon operation, you should change your lifestyle permanently and keep dieting and exercising.
Gastric bypass surgery is an operation that shrinks the stomach to reduce the calories a patient takes and it makes the patient lose weight. The stomach is disconnected on the top part and made a small porch first. Then, a loop of the small intestine is brought up and connected to this porch. In that way, the surgeon reroutes the GI (gastrointestinal) tract. Consequently, It is known that surgeons bypass about 95% of the stomach in gastric bypass surgery.
Diabetes surgery (SADI-S) is a variation on the duodenal switch surgery. The full name of SADI-S is Single Anastomosis Duodeno-Ileal Bypass with Sleeve Gastrectomy.
In this procedure, as it is in the gastric sleeve, the stomach is turned into a banana-shaped tube. It is a bariatric surgery carried out to lose weight and to mitigate various metabolic issues including Type-2 diabetes, dyslipidemia, and metabolic syndrome.
Type-2 diabetes carries many risks for your health. With the help of Diabetes surgery, your life quality can be improved incomparably.
Gastric injections represent a cutting-edge method for aiding patients in weight loss. This non-surgical endoscopic procedure involves the direct injection of a substance into the stomach wall. The primary objective of this procedure is to restrict the natural contractions of stomach muscles and reduce the patient's appetite.
Gastric injections may not be suitable for you. Gastric injections are suitable for people who are overweight, but not for people who are obese. This method doesn’t work with people whose BMI is above 40.
