Obesity is a national epidemic associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Bariatric surgery, or weight loss surgery, is a highly effective tool to improve patient health dramatically and includes a variety of procedures performed on people who are obese. At the Shape and Beauty Cancun, we give patients many surgical options for weight loss using bariatric surgery.
Not everyone should consider bariatric surgery. People should try appropriate dieting, exercise, and other ways to lose weight before considering bariatric surgery. However, if you have failed at multiple diets and cannot get your medical problems related to weight under control you should consider bariatric surgery.
The procedure has been most successful for people who meet certain bariatric surgery criteria. A person may consider bariatric surgery if they have already tried non-surgical weight loss treatments such as diet, exercise, and behavioral changes; they are between the ages of 15 and 64; and they have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 35 or greater. BMI is a simple way to calculate how obese you are.
Because each patient is different, as well as well as their stories and needs, we offer various surgical options for weight loss, see which one is best for you.
Gastric sleeve surgery is a procedure in which a vertical sleeve is created within the stomach through surgical stapling. The sleeve itself is thin and approximately eight inches long. As the sleeve is created, the rest of the stomach is stapled off the body. Food passes through your digestive system as it normally would and is fully absorbed into the body. However, the capacity for food within the stomach is now smaller.
Gastric bypass surgery is one of the most frequently performed procedures for the seriously obese. By creating a smaller stomach pouch, the body's normal digestive process is altered, restricting food intake and the amount of calories the body absorbs. As a result, food bypasses a large part of the stomach and most of the small intestine.
Lap band (also known as gastric band) surgery is a procedure that helps limit your food intake and makes you feel fuller with less amounts of food. Lap band surgery is an effective medical procedure that has helped countless people get over the enormous hurdle of losing weight.
