Weight Loss Surgery – How does it work?

Achieve effective, long-term weight control with Laparoscopic Gastric Banding or Gastric Bypass solutions.

Weight loss procedure is the next step when diet, exercise and medication have failed.Surgery assists weight loss and weight control in many ways:

Creating a sense of fullness

Restrictive procedures such as gastric banding and sleeve gastrectomy cause stretching of the stomach after only a small amount of food. The brain detects this as fullness.

Satisfying hunger for longer

Food which is held up in the stomach will abolish sensations of hunger. This loss of hunger can last several hours depending on how slow the food moves on.

Malabsorption

Gastric bypass also causes weight loss by reducing the calorie absorption from the intestine. This does not occur with gastric banding or sleeve gastrectomy.
