Common Types Of Weight Loss Surgeries

BodySmartWhen it comes to physical looks, most individuals wish to have a slim body. However, due to numerous factors like unbalanced diet, insufficient exercise, and unhealthy lifestyle, individuals gain weight. Luckily, there are numerous ways on how to cut down excess fat. Unfortunately, there are cases when the only solution is to opt for a weight loss surgery. To know more, below are some of the most common weight loss surgeries individuals can choose from.

Adjustable Gastric Banding

Gastric banding is a type of restrictive weight loss surgery. The surgeon uses an inflatable band to squeeze the stomach into two sections: a smaller upper pouch and a larger lower section. However, some of the risks of this surgery include vomiting after eating too much too quickly.

Sleeve Gastrectomy

This is another form of restrictive weight loss surgery where the surgeon removes about 75% of the stomach. Some of the risks of this surgery include infection, leaking of the sleeve, and blood clots.

Gastric Bypass Surgery

Gastric bypass is the most common type of weight loss surgery since it combines both restrictive and malabsorptive approaches. During the operation, the surgeon divides the stomach into two parts, sealing off the upper section from the lower. Unfortunately, after the surgery, individuals cannot absorb food the way they used to, and that puts them at risk of not getting enough nutrients.

Maestro Rechargeable System

Maestro Rechargeable System works like a pacemaker to deliver electrical pulses to a nerve between the stomach and brain, called vagus nerve. The device is implanted in the abdomen and has a remote control that can adjust it from outside the body.
