While there are many options when it comes to losing those extra pounds, a number of people continue to choose surgery to lose weight quickly. Weight loss surgeries are a surgical remedy to those who are overweight so as to help people in reducing weight. In medical terms, weight loss surgery is called Bariatric surgery. There are many types of bariatric surgeries that are offered and each has its own advantages, disadvantages, and stages of difficulties. Basically, all of these surgeries aim to limit the capacity of the body to restrict the quantity of food intake that automatically limits the calorie intake.
How Skilled Are The Surgeons?
There are a number of concerns that some might consider before they decide to schedule a surgery. In my opinion, the biggest for most people would be the qualifications and skill of the surgeon. Most likely, you will not meet your surgeon face to face before flying to Mexico. Because you will want to ‘vet’ your surgeon it is a good idea to schedule a one on one meeting via Skype, Google Hangouts, or Facetime.
Types of Weight Loss Surgeries Available
Weight loss surgery is an opportunity to start a new life with a new lifestyle and these surgeries consist high chances of success if the patient adopts the healthy lifestyle, exercise, and healthy diet. The different weight loss surgeries usually available in Mexico consist:
Gastric lap Band
Mini Gastric Sleeve
Gastric Lap Band
Gastric lap band is also known as adjustable gastric banding and gastric banding. This surgery is a procedure of placing a silicone band around the upper portion of the stomach that makes a slight sack like a golf ball and a large sack under the silicon band.
The Gastric band surgery is successful for those patients who are willing to change their lifestyle and eating habits. For instance, if you are addicted to food, carbonated drinks and milkshakes this procedure is not for you until and unless you are committed to reducing weight and changing life style.
There are many types of Gastric Bypass. The most common practice in Mexico is the Roux-en-Y that is also called RYGB. Gastric Bypass is a blend of the restrictive and malabsorptive process that have dual weight losing results.
The small sack is shaped by attaching an upper portion of the stomach under the attachment the stomach will stay but food will not be able to go in.
Mini Gastric sleeve in Mexico
Mini Gastric sleeve surgery 2/3 of the stomach is cut off and detached that leaves a small stomach that in the form of a sleeve. The part that is cut off makes the hunger hormones by removing that part of stomach outcomes in less hunger.
Mini Gastric surgery was introduced to lessen the surgery timing and making the procedure simple.
The gastric balloon surgery consists of a silicone balloon that is put in the stomach with sterline saline. The balloon inside the stomach fills the stomach partly that gives you the sense of less hunger and fullness. This type of surgery can help you reduce weight without any aggressive surgery. Gastric balloon surgery is an endoscopic process which only takes thirty to forty minutes to complete. You will be given minor anesthesia and a deflated balloon will be inserted into your stomach via the oesophagus.
Why are weight loss Surgery patients not always successful in achieving goals in Mexico?
The reason that patients are not successful to achieve their weight loss goals in Mexico can be any problem with the actual surgery or the failure of the patient in changing the life style and eating habits etc.
Bariatric Select also works with those patients who already had any weight loss surgery but are finding other solution as the previous one has not been successful due to any reason.
