Excess belly fat doesn't just interfere with fitting into your favorite pair of jeans it may wreak havoc on your physical health and damage your mental state of mind. Being dangerously overweight or morbid obesity dramatically increases your risk for various diseases like diabetes mellitus type 2, obstructive sleep apnea, certain types of cancer, and most notably, heart disease. The Lap-Band and Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy offers the relief that the obese people desperately require.

For your overall mental and physical well-being, it is vital that you maintain a healthy body weight. For slightly overweight people conventional means of weight loss like strict diet regime and physical exercise are enough to shed those extra pounds.

Research has now found that obese patients that go through this procedure are able to keep the excess weight off for longer. The study found that patients lost 57.4% of excessive BMI (Body Mass Index) over a period of 5 years.

The procedure is considered minimally invasive, usually resulting in smaller scars, lesser pain, a shorter hospital stay and quicker recovery. In the surgery, a bariatric expert will remove approximately 85% of the stomach, along with most of hunger-stimulating hormones, Ghrelin. Using a stapling device, a thin vertical sleeve of stomach is created and the remaining large portion of the stomach is removed.

The surgery helps you control hunger as most of hunger-stimulating hormones are removed from the digestive system. You lose 30 to 60% bulge of your pendulous tummy within the first 12 months of operation. No medical device is implanted inside of your abdomen. You can eat most of the food items, albeit in little quantity.

The main advantage associated with the procedure is the high success rate. In a short time of two years, most of patients lose up to 60-80% of excess body weight. Another advantage is that there is no permanently restrictive device or foreign objects like the band which have to be implanted in the body. The objects have been known to slip, erode and even cause an infection. Infections.

This procedure doesn't require regular check-ups and adjustments like the gastric band. With gastric sleeve, there is no malabsorption of nutrients therefore you are not required to take minimal vitamin and mineral supplementation after the surgery. This make it less costly and more effective, partly contributing to its popularity. It does not require extreme adjustment to the lifestyle, and is therefore an easy and more successful procedure.

Combined restrictive/malabsorptive procedures: In recent years, the use of procedures combining restrictive and malabsorptive approaches has increased. The procedures in this category work by restricting the stomach size and physically removing parts of your digestive tract, making it harder for your body to absorb calories. The procedure that combine both restrictive and malabsorptive techniques include Gastric bypass that is generally more malabsorption but also works through restriction, the Mini-gastric bypass that works through restriction and Duodenal switch that is mostly malabsorption.
