Each type of bariatric surgery helps patients lose weight in a different way. The most popular or the two is called “Restrictive Surgery” Restrictive surgeries work by restricting the overall size of your stomach that results in slowing down of the digestion process thus shedding weight. A normal human stomach is said to hold 2-4 pints of food. After restrictive surgery however the stomach may be limited to only an ounce. The theory behind the surgery is that the smaller your stomach, the less you will have to eat. The less a person eats the more weight they will lose. The other type of surgery is known as Malabsorptive Restrictive surgery. Malabsorptive surgeries is a slightly more-invasive surgery that works by restricting the overall size of the stomach and also surgically removing parts of your stomachs digestive tract. This type of surgery makes it much harder for you to digest and absorb additional calories thus reducing your weight.

Gastric Sleeve and Bypass Technique

Gastric bypass surgery in Thailand can be performed via minimally invasive surgery or as an open surgery. The gastric surgeon in Thailand technique works by dividing your stomach area into two separate areas, and then sealing the lower and upper sections from each other. The Thai surgeon will then connects your upper stomach area directly to your lower small intestine, Essentially creating a shortcut for your food to “bypass” a section of your stomach. The gastric sleeve surgery in Thailand uses a laparoscope to aid in the removal of about 65%-80% of your stomach. The remaining area becomes a narrow tube like a “sleeve”. This sleeve connects directly to the lower intestines. A sleeve gastrectomy is usually the first in a sequence of weightloss surgeries and usually followed up by a biliopancreatic diversion surgery or gastric bypass that results in much greater weight loss.The gastric sleeve surgery is an temporary measure to help obese clients lose weight temporarily till the point in time when a more definitive surgery can be performed.

Gastric band surgery in Thailand is considered the least invasive weight loss surgery. This bariatric surgery works by using an inflatable band to squeeze your stomach into two separate sections, a large lower section and a small upper pouch. These two sections will still remain connected, but the area between the two is very small. This small tube helps slow down the hungry feeling you get by emptying the upper pouch. Gastric band weight loss surgery can physically restrict the total amount of food you can consume in any meal. This often results in people only eating half to one third of food they normally eat before feeling full.

After Bariatric Surgery Care

Having any type of weight loss surgery requires commitment to change poor eating habits. Weightloss surgery and/or Modern Liposuction such as Bodytite or Vaser can give you a fantastic jump start but ultimately, you must embrace a new lifestyle that consists of low amounts sugars and carbs in your diet. In the case of gastric band surgery and gastric sleeve surgery, such a diet is critical because these types of high carb/sugar foods can pass easily through the digestive restrictions, thus delivering a very high calorie doses to your intestines. This even would essentially defeat the purpose of having weight loss surgery. If these mandatory guidelines are not followed by you after surgery,the lost weight may be easily regained.
