Slimming is a treatment method for weight loss in which the patient loses weight by changing the way food is digested and calories are reduced.
Through slimming surgeries, the patient not only experiences dramatic and irreversible weight loss, but also improves his health.
Most weight-related diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease improve after weight loss surgery.
There are several types of slimming surgery, including gastric bypass and sleeve, adjustable gastric band, and gastric balloon.
In the following, we will explain the latest method of slimming surgery performed by experienced doctors in Iran.
Types of slimming surgery methods in Iran
Gastric sleeve is one of the newest, most popular and least dangerous methods of slimming surgeries, which reduces the calories received by removing 80% of the stomach, resulting in weight loss.
Also, the part of the stomach that is responsible for the secretion of hunger hormone is removed in this surgery, so the patient’s appetite is significantly reduced.
Gastric sleeve is the newest method of slimming surgery, which has fewer complications and challenges than other methods, and also treats obesity-related diseases.
Also, the recovery period of gastric sleeve surgery will be shorter and better than other methods. The patient can lose 60 to 70% of his weight with gastric sleeve surgery.
Gastric bypass surgery not only reduces the size of the stomach but also reduces the absorption of nutrients by manipulating the intestines.
During the gastric bypass procedure, first a part of the stomach is cut and set aside, then a part of the intestine is attached to the continuation of the stomach and sewn.
This causes the person to eat less food first and secondly not to fully absorb all the calories of this food.
Gastric bypass is one of the most standard weight loss surgeries that can reduce varicose veins by 80%.
But unfortunately, it has side effects such as dumping syndrome or inability of the stomach to store food.
In addition, patients with gastric bypass lose the ability to absorb some vitamins and have to take vitamin and mineral supplements for the rest of their lives.
Roux-en-Y gastric bypass:
Gastric bypass, also known as Roux-en-Y bypass, consists of two parts.
First, the surgeon sutures the upper part of the stomach and a small sac forms in that part, which makes the stomach much smaller than before and the patient can not eat much food and feels full very quickly.
The surgeon then removes the small intestine and attaches the lower part to the shrunken stomach sac.
Because food does not pass through most of the stomach and upper intestine, the body absorbs fewer calories.
The surgeon attaches the bypassed or discarded part of the bowel (upper part) to the end of the small intestine.
This bypassed part is still considered the continuation of the stomach, so the digestive juice passes first through the stomach and through the first part of the small intestine and then through its end.
Stomach ring or adjustable ring is another method of slimming surgery in which a ring is closed around the upper part of the stomach and by shrinking this part, the patient eats less.
After gastric banding surgery, the patient feels full faster than before. However, after this surgery, the patient loses weight less than the sleeve and gastric bypass.
During this surgery, a balloon enters the stomach, which occupies a large volume, and the patient will no longer be able to eat as before.
Of course, the gastric balloon is an almost obsolete method and is less used today due to its side effects.
