Obesity Can Be Tackled With Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgery
Obesity is not just a harbinger of diseases, it’s a disease itself. Noting good comes out of being obese. You will never know good health until you shed off the extra weight. But this is easier said than done. Morbid obesity cannot be tackled by dieting and gymming alone. You need more than just a half hearted attempt. Your body needs to make serious adjustments to get its shape and condition of a healthy individual. This means you might need surgical assistance. There are many weight loss surgeries that can help you with weight loss, one such surgery is Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgery.
Like Gastric Banding, Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgery is done with the intention of reducing the stomach’s ability for food. However, unlike banding which is reversible, gastric sleeve surgery is permanent. Three-fourths of your stomach is surgically removed permanently, leaving it in the shape and size of a large banana.This surgery is performed under general anesthesia. Small incisions are made around the stomach region through which a laparoscope is inserted which offers visual support to the surgeon during the operation. The stomach area is measured and about 75% of it stapled off and detached. This reduces the food intake capacity of a person to just 25%. A leak test is then conducted before the operation is completed and the patient is kept under observation for a day in the hospital before being released. This procedure is greatly successful in fending off the hunger pangs as hunger inducing hormone ghrelin is reduced by eliminating a part of the stomach mainly accountable for its production.
This surgery has numerous benefits apart from the obvious benefit of weight loss. It has a shorter operating time than compared to gastric bypass. There is no lap-band hence no adjustments needed. No foreign objects are introduced to the body. Patient looses weight rather rapidly. The recovery from sleeve gastrectomy varies from patient to patient. All one needs to do is follow the instructions of their surgeon. Always choose surgeon whose expertise and skills are well known. One such surgeon is Dr Milan Doshi. He along with his team at Allure MedSpa is known for their excellence in cosmetic surgeries. Your body can be normal again. Choosing to be normal is your choice.
