Single Incision, No Scar Lap Band Surgery (SILS) in Austin Texas

It seems impossible–weight-loss surgery that leaves no scar…at least no scar that can be seen.

Which Weight Loss Surgery Is Best For You?

The weight loss surgeries most often done today are the lap band and the gastric bypass or the sleeve gastrectomy.

In the lap band nothing is rearranged - they just put a sort of belt around your stomach. This is supposed to make it uncomfortable to eat more than a bit at a time.

Financial Assistance for Gastric Bypass

Gastric bypass surgery can be a life-changing procedure for many severely overweight patients that will help them live a longer and healthier life as a result of their weight loss.

Diet Plan after Gastric Bypass Surgery

Gastric bypass surgery has been a very successful approach to helping severely overweight patients lose the weight they need to stay healthy. Even though the procedure will enable the patient to eat less and still feel full, the overall success of the program relies on the surgery, and a post-operative regiment of diet and exercise to actually lose the weight.

Long Term Effect of Sleeve Gastrectomy on Weight Loss and Ghrelin

Sleeve gastrectomy is a bariatric procedure that has become vastly popular due to its great efficacy for weight loss. It is performed either as a sole operation in morbidly obese people or as a first step in super-obese patients, followed by a second intervention, which is usually Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) or bilio-pancreatic diversion with duodenal switch (BPDDS).

Sleeve gastrectomy (also called vertical sleeve gastrectomy) involves removing about 85% of the stomach thus restricting the amount of food that can be eaten. Unlike gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy procedure leaves the intestines intact. It is therefore a purely restrictive procedure. No gastrointestinal malabsorption occurs since the intestines are not bypassed. Although it is less invasive than gastric bypass, recent studies show that it has similar short and intermediate-term results with gastric bypass.

Weight-loss surgery techniques have made great progress since the early days, when as many as 50 percent of patients experienced complications and frequently needed repeat or “revisional” surgery after the initial procedure. But even with the strides that have been made in surgical methods, it’s still true that not all bariatric surgery leads to immediate or long-term success.
