Know About Common Types of Weight Loss Surgeries!

Obesity is unarguably one of the most regularly discussed topics around the world. A major section of the world's population is suffering from a variety of obesity related problems. There are a number of natural methods to check obesity; however, several medical surgeries are gaining popularity among the masses with instant results to reduce weight.

Here is a list of the most common types of weight loss surgeries:

1. Gastric sleeve surgery: This surgery is performed where removal of a large part of the stomach takes place. A long pouch is created, which connects the small intestine with the oesophagus. The pouch gets stapled and after that the other parts of the stomach are reduced. In some cases, an additional step is taken for reinforcement of the staple line.

Gastric sleeve reduces the size of the stomach and a patient will feel full after eating lesser amount of food. Because a portion of the stomach is reduced, lesser amount of hunger causing hormones are produced. The patient will therefore feel less hungry.

2. Gastric bypass surgery: This is another effective weight loss surgery, which reduces the patient's stomach size, resulting in reduced appetite. The intestines are rearranged, which makes the body absorb fewer minerals. While performing this surgery, the stomach is cut and stapled to create a pouch. 

The remaining stomach is attached to the small intestine's top portion, and the small intestine is cut and attached to the pouch as well. After this, the end portion of the small intestine is connected with the non-pouch part of the stomach and is attached to the roux limb bottom. This makes the stomach's digestive juices to meet the food present in the intestines.

3. Duodenal switch: This surgery reduces the stomach size in patients, which leads to decreased appetite or craving for food. Fewer hormones, which cause hunger, are secreted and the rearrangement of the intestine causes the body to absorb minimal minerals or calories.

A part of the stomach is removed and a pouch is created. The small intestine's top portion is cut off, but the duodenum is kept attached to the stomach. The small intestines are cut, and the part attached to the large intestine called colon is connected with the duodenum. Finally, the loose end of the small intestine gets attached to the small intestine to enable digestive juices to mix with food.

4. Lap band surgery: By this surgery, a band is wrapped around the upper middle section of the stomach which squeezes the stomach. Thus a smaller section of the stomach is created above the band which fills up very quickly while having food. The patient feels full by eating less. A laparoscopic adjustable gastric band is used.

There are many different weight loss surgeries. Most of them aim at reducing the capacity of the stomach, so that the person eats less food.

My mother is 52 years old. Four months back she diagnosed with obstructive jaundice. We got her to hospital and doctors placed PTBD. Lots of fluid was coming. But now there is no fluid coming from it. Apart from this she is getting fever with shivering every third or fourth day. We had some tests HIDA scan and PET scan in starting of the treatment. They all are negative. But she not getting any better and have loss weight and appetite. Doctors now stopped discussing about obstructive jaundice and saying her liver got infected upto 60% they are not giving any clear picture what the real condition is. Please if anyone here can tell if my mother can cure or not? Waiting for the answer.

Obstructive jaundice itself is a very sinister condition. Post PTBD fever & low output suggests infection (cholangitis/cholangiolar abscess) and blockage of the drains. This carries extreme risks to life. Am sure the patient must be in ICU, on advanced antibiotics and there must be some drowsiness and urine issues as well. I believe you must sit with the entire treating team and discuss things. Best luck.

I had problem of piles from last 2 years and since then I have been losing weight continuously. Though I have gone through the treatment and got rid of the problem, but still I am losing weight. I had thought that after the treatment I would be able to gain weight again but instead I am constantly losing it. I was around 62 kgs and now my weight has come down to 53 kgs. Can there be any other reason behind this? Should I go for a full body check up and see what's wrong? Or just consult a GP?

You must show to A surgeon and I would advice a Sigmoidoscopy/Colonoscopy along with other relevant blood tests.

Hep B status and Hernia should be seen separately. Kindly get evaluated ASAP. There is no science behind waiting for 6 months. Best luck.

I underwent an operation for hernia about 12-14 years back on my left-lower abdomen. Recently 2-3 years back it was opened & all implants viz. Mesh slipped near to my left testicle. At present I don’t have any pain except some inconvenience and sounds from my left abdomen frequently. Can I keep it as it is or any problem in keeping it?

This is a Recurrent Hernia with Mesh Migration. I am more worried about your Hernia than the mesh in the scrotum. You have to get evaluated for the cause of recurrence and the complexity of the problem. Kindly see a good Surgeon.

Hello . I can understand the concern you have because of the scar. Once a scar has formed there are very limited options to manage it. An important thing is to avoid sun exposure, use any sun block of spf 20+. And if the presence of scar really bothers you alot then you may go for plastic surgery for scar excision/removal.
