Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass
It is a restrictive and mal-absorptive procedure where a small pouch is made by cutting and stapling the stomach. The pouch is connected to the lower part of small intestine so food bypasses rest of the stomach and top of small intestine. The upper part of small intestine is connected to the lower part so bile and other gastric juices digest food completely. Smaller stomach pouch restricts the amount of food eaten. The feeling of fullness is fast and sustained. Limited calories are absorbed due to small intestine bypass. As a result, fat reserves are used to expend energy.
Laparoscopic Gastric Sleeve
It is a restrictive procedure. The surgery is done by creating a small sleeve of the stomach (of the size of banana) by stapling it. Rest of stomach is resected. Smaller stomach pouch curbs the amount of food intake hence giving satiety for a faster and longer time. So, the fat stored is depleted.
Laparoscopic Mini Gastric Bypass
This is a restrictive and mal-absorptive procedure. Tube-shaped pouch is separated from stomach at the end of the esophagus and is attached to small intestine at six feet. Unlike this, in classic bypass small intestine is cut and there are two connections instead of one. Pouch in this case is bigger than classic bypass. It acts in the same way as classic bypass except that the intestinal bypassed is more in this than in gastric bypass which could result in increased vitamin and mineral deficiencies.
Intra Gastric Balloon
The Intra Gastric Balloon (IGB) also known as gastric balloon is a simple, non-invasive procedure to treat obesity. In this procedure, a small deflated silicone balloon is placed inside the stomach. The balloon is then filled with sterile saline. This thus, help to reduce hunger and food intake, and aids is overall weight loss.
Laparoscopic Gastric Band
Laparoscopic adjustable gastric band, popularly known as "lap band" or "Gastric band" is a popular bariatric surgery or weight loss surgery procedure. In this procedure, an inflatable silicone device or band is places around the top portion of the stomach. This helps reduce the stomach’s capacity, which is turn reduces food consumption and facilitates weight loss.
