What Is Bariatric Surgery

Bariatric surgery is a key hole / laparoscopic procedure to increase body’s metabolism by stimulating gut hormones. The stomach size is reduced and the passage of food in intestine is altered to achieve the desired result.
No fat is removed in this procedure. It’s not same as liposuction where in fat below skin is sucked out using special technique.
Bariatric Surgeries are restrictive, malabsorptive or a combination of both.
Restrictive Surgeries make the stomach smaller, helping the person consume less food and feel full sooner.
Malabsorptive Surgeries bypass part of the digestive system so fewer calories are absorbed from food.
What are the most common types of Bariatric Surgeries?
Sleeve gastrectomy
The stomach is stapled to form a thin sleeve and the rest of the stomach is removed, reducing the size of the stomach. Decreasing the stomach size makes you feel fuller sooner. However, food passes through the digestive tract in the usual order.
Gastric bypass
A small pouch is created from the stomach and is connected to the small intestine, bypassing part of the system. The remainder of the stomach is not removed. The surgery fulfills two goals i.e. making you feel full sooner as well as reducing the absorption of calories and nutrients in the body.
Mini Gastric bypass
The stomach is reduced by separating a tube-like pouch of stomach from the rest of the stomach. This tubular gastric pouch is connected (anastomosed) to the intestine, by passing up to 200cm of the upper part of the intestine. It is simple and reversible form of laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery.
