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.

 

Gastric Sleeve

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.

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.
