Gastric Sleeve (Sleeve Gastrectomy): Gastric Sleeve surgery, also referred to as Sleeve Gastrectomy, is primarily performed to remove about 85% of the stomach. The rest 15% of the original capacity of the stomach is left for shaping in the form of a sleeve. By restricting the amount of food the stomach can hold. No foreign objects are required, therefore a patient recovers in a relatively short hospital stay.
Gastric Bypass Surgery: The purpose of this procedure is to separate the stomach into two unequal sections. Only 5 percent of the stomach area is left for food consumption. The food gets emptied from this small stomach pocket in the upper intestine at the time of digestion. This procedure creates 60 to 80 per cent excess weight loss.
Biliopancreatic Diversion: Just like gastric bypass surgery, Biliopancreatic diversion also creates a smaller stomach. In this, ingested food is not fully absorbed in the intestine. This surgery is specifically for people who are more than severely obese. Super obesity means that BMI (body mass index) is 50 or higher.
LAP-BAND Surgery: This surgery is an easily recovering short procedure. Around the stomach's upper part, an inflatable band is used that divides the stomach into two unequal parts. The stomach's upper part is treated as a new stomach and the food intake is restricted and promotes the weight loss.
