FAQ’S
What is the safest form of weight loss surgery?

Each type of weight loss surgery has its own advantages and disadvantages. The surgeon will indicate the type of surgery based on the health and weight loss requirement of the individual. 

Gastric Banding: It is the easiest and safest method of weight loss surgery. However, the weight loss is less than that of other surgeries. Additionally, individuals with gastric band are more likely to gain weight in the long term. Because the surgery does not affect the absorption of nutrients, hence there is a low risk of nutrition deficiency.

Sleeve Gastrectomy: It is a very safe and simple surgery for those who are obese and have other health issues. Weight loss is important and does not affect the absorption of nutrients. 

Gastric Bypass: This surgery allows rapid weight loss that lasts up to 2 years. It is useful for patients suffering from diseases related to arthritis and help them to quickly improve their health. It has good long term results in maintaining the weight. It may cause hernia and nutritional deficiencies due to malabsorption. It can also cause dumping syndrome, in which food passes from the stomach to the intestines before it is properly digested.

Duodenal Switch: It is much more complicated & involves high risk than other surgeries and is performed less frequently. It can lead to rapid weight loss, but the chances of hernias, malnutrition, and dumping syndrome are high.

What is the weight loss doctor called?

Weight loss physicians are called bariatric surgeons and specialized in weight loss management. A bariatric surgeon can meet the specific needs of an overweight or obese patient. All bariatric surgeons are trained in nutrition and weight loss, perform weight loss surgeries, they offer weight loss programs that are medically supervised by a bariatrician.

What qualifies a person for weight loss surgery?

Bariatric Surgery or weight loss surgery can help an obese person lose weight by reducing their appetite and digestive capacity. A person with a body mass index of 30 or more is considered obese. Other factors such as muscle mass and waist circumference can also contribute to the diagnosis of obesity.

People consider weight loss surgery when their BMI is 40 or more. It may also be recommended for people with a BMI between 30 and 40 if they have conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, fatty liver, or sleep apnea.

Which is better: bypass or sleeve?

Your doctor is the best person to choose the appropriate weight loss method for you. Patients who have had gastric bypass surgery lose 50 to 80% of their body weight whereas gastric sleeve patients lose 60 to 70% of their excess body weight on average in 12 to 18 months.

What is the newest weight loss surgery?

Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty is a minimally invasive procedure which does not involve any incisions for weight loss. This procedure has a lower complication rate and may be an option for weight loss in non-surgical candidates or patients who do not wish to undergo surgery.
