The biliopancreatic diversion – duodenal switch (BPD-DS) is a type of weight loss surgery which involves extensive bypass with duodenal switch as defined by the National Institute of Health. This type of surgery is not commonly performed but has continued to attract attention because it allows a person to eat larger servings of food than the regular gastric bypass. It also is an excellent weight loss system which has several benefits going for it. About one-half of the stomach is permanently removed. The remaining portion of the stomach is then connected to the last 8 feet of the small intestine, which is also connected to the small bowel, serving as the common channel where digestive juices mix with the food.
Gastric bypass surgery combines the creation of a small stomach pouch to restrict food intake and construction of bypasses of the duodenum and other segments of the small intestine to cause malabsorption (decreased ability to absorb calories and nutrients from food).
Gastric Sleeve Surgery, also known as Gastric Sleeve Resection or Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (VSG), is a restrictive type of weight loss surgery that permanently reduces the size of the stomach. It promotes weight loss by limiting food intake and lessening the sensation of hunger; it does not involve intestinal rerouting or food malabsorption.
A¬ laparoscopic adjustable gastric band, commonly referred to as a¬ lap band, is an inflatable¬ silicone¬ device that is placed around the top portion of thestomach, via¬ laparoscopic surgery, in order to treat¬ obesity. Adjustable gastric band surgery is¬ designed for obese patients with abody mass index¬ (BMI) of 40 or greater¬óor between 35¬Ė40 in cases of patients with certain¬ comorbidities¬ that are known to improve with weight loss, such as¬ sleep apnea,¬ diabetes,¬ osteoarthritis,¬ GERD,¬ Hypertension (high blood pressure), or¬ metabolic syndrome, among others.
Post bariatric cosmetic surgery provides various surgical options available to patients following the massive weight reductions which can result from weight loss surgery. Since skin laxity cannot keep up with weight loss, the skin¬ís elasticity is permanently damaged. Body contouring procedures on post bariatric patients differ from those performed on normal weight people.
