Weight-loss surgery helps people who have tried everything to lose weight such as exercise and diet-control. It is very effective in reducing significant amount of weight in obese and severely obese people. Commonly known as bariatric surgery, it is proved to have long-term health benefits.
It’s been deemed a critical advancement in the field of bariatric surgery, and may soon become one of the best options for minimally-invasive surgery for patients who are severely overweight. Single incision laparoscopic surgery is an innovative procedure where the doctor uses just a single incision to insert the camera and instruments needed to perform the bariatric surgery procedure. Here’s a close look at how single incision laparoscopic surgery works, and what its key benefits are.
If you are morbidly obese and want to lose more than 100 pounds, diet and exercise alone may not be enough to get you to a healthy weight. For many people struggling with obesity, laparoscopic bariatric surgery is the solution for getting rid of the extra weight and enjoying a healthier lifestyle. This procedure is also known as the laparoscopic gastric bypass procedure and offers fewer risks than traditional abdominal surgery because it requires fewer incisions. Talk to a bariatric surgeon in your area to find out if you are a good candidate for the laparoscopic bariatric surgery procedure.
In order to lose weight and keep it off after bariatric surgery, it’s important for patients to stick with a restricted bariatric surgery diet program. When you undergo gastric bypass surgery, gastric banding or other types of bariatric surgery procedures, the size of your stomach will be drastically, and you can only eat a very small amount of food at a time. You'll be limited to a liquid diet for a few weeks after surgery and will then only be able to eat certain types of foods to support your weight loss process. Talk to a bariatric surgeon in your area to see if you're a good candidate for one of the available weight loss procedures.
