Obesity is not just an aesthetic issue. This is a dangerous disease that increases the risk of diabetes, hypertensive disease, and changes in the cardiovascular system, the lungs, and the digestive system.

Sleeve Gastrectomy

This operation is also called a longitudinal resection or Sleeve-resection. During the surgery, the part of the stomach, which produces the hunger hormone — ghrelin is removed surgically. Unlike other bariatric methods, a foreign body does not stay in the body, and it is not necessary to take vitamins constantly.

How it works

After the surgery, patients do not have a constant need for food: ravenous hunger or bulimia. However, they have the physiological process of ingestion and digesting the food. For feeling comfortable, it is enough to have regular small portions of food — up to 200 ml at once. Getting food into the intestine becomes faster, causing an early feeling of satiety, which promotes weight loss.

Gastric bypass surgery

This is a combined operation, during which they reduce the stomach and reconstruct the small intestine to limit the absorption of food components.

How it works

To reduce the amount of consumed food, during the operation they create a «small stomach», which is connected directly with the small intestine. The rest – the larger part in volume -of the stomach is not removed and is not excluded from the process of digestion, but is not involved in the movement of food through the intestines. The food gets quickly into the small stomach, and the person has a steady feeling of satiety. It reduces the amount of food needed for saturation.

The point of this procedure is that under the control of an endoscope they install a special cylinder that is filled with liquid into the stomach.

It is necessary to remember that the cylinder is a large foreign body and can stay in the stomach not more than a month. This type of operation is recommended as a preparatory stage for seriously ill patients.

How it works

The cylinder reduces the volume of the stomach by its volume. As a result, a person gets saturated faster, the amount of calories is reduced, which leads to the weight loss. The result of the operation is a weight loss up to 20 kg.
