Bariatric Surgery: A Guide to Effective Weight Loss

This procedure is an effective solution for those who have not achieved results with traditional methods of diet and exercise and face health problems due to being overweight. Including options such as sleeve gastrectomy, gastric bypass, biliopancreatic diversion and weight loss surgery offers a way to limit food intake and reduce calorie absorption.
The result of gastric sleeve is not only a physical restriction in the amount of food intake but also a decrease in the production of hormones such as insulin, which can contribute to a greater feeling of satiety and appetite control.
One of the most commonly used techniques for the treatment of morbid obesity involves creating a small stomach pouch and connecting it directly to the small intestine. This results in a significant reduction in the size of the stomach and an alteration of the digestive process.
This procedure involves the endoscopic insertion of a soft, flexible silicone sphere into the stomach, which is then filled with saline solution. By occupying space in the stomach, the balloon reduces the capacity of ingestion and a feeling of satiety that helps weight loss.
