About the procedure

it is a surgical procedure that uses many different techniques to achieve one goal which is losing weight for those who suffer from overweight and high BMI
This procedure isn’t done only to improve the way the patient’s body looks, but more importantly to reduce life-threatening risks that come with obesity like heart diseases, type2 diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea and many more.

Before the procedure

First of all, a complete medical evaluation will be done so the doctor can determine the appropriate procedure and schedule the surgery’s date
The most important thing before the surgery is the DIET.
In obese people, there’s almost always fat accumulation around the liver, which makes it enlarge making the surgery harder for the surgeon and riskier for the patient. This is why a strict diet should be started 2 weeks before the surgery. You’ll have to cut down carbs and sweets, then 2 days before the surgery, you’ll depend on a liquid diet only (this includes a protein shake to give you energy). Note that caffeinated and carbonated beverages should be avoided
Another crucial step you should be aware of is you should stop smoking at least 4 weeks before the surgery or else it would be cancelled.

After the procedure

After the surgery you’ll need some time to recover so you should take 2 weeks off from work, you’ll need to go on a special diet, then you’ll start to lose weight. Around 1.5 kg per week for about 6 to 12 months.
Losing this weight will give you a better-shaped body as well as a better health condition! Many studies have confirmed that after sleeve gastrectomy the blood pressure significantly improves and this means decreased mortality as high blood pressure is responsible for almost all heart diseases.
It’s very important to stick to your diet and exercise routine as they are responsible for both losing weight and keeping the result you’ve achieved

Obesity procedures

Gastric Bypass

Gastric bypass surgery is a type of bariatric, or weight loss, surgery. During gastric bypass surgery involves creating a small pouch from the stomach and connecting the newly created pouch directly to the small intestine. This means it takes less food to make you feel full and you’ll absorb fewer calories from the food you eat.
The goal of these operations is to modify the stomach and intestines to treat obesity and related diseases. The operations may make the stomach smaller and also bypass a portion of the intestine. This results in less food intake and changes how the body absorbs food for energy resulting in decreased hunger and increased fullness. These procedures improve the body’s ability to achieve a healthy weight.

Gastric Botox Injections

gastric Botox which is injected by endoscopy relax the stomach muscles, causing them to contract less, and that will lead to feeling full for a longer time thus eating less and helping you lose weight!
It is a minimally invasive procedure that takes about 20 minutes
It can be done in the clinic; it doesn’t need a hospital stay as you can go home after the procedure and most of them can resume their activities the day after.
the effect period of the gastric Botox injection is 4 – 5 months then you can repeat the procedure if needed
this procedure is ideal for patients aiming to lose 10-15 Kgs of their weight.

Gastric Balloons

If you are looking for an affordable, quick, nonsurgical procedure without any incisions, stitches or scars, a gastric balloon could be your answer to weight loss.
A gastric balloon is an inflatable silicone balloon that is inserted into your stomach. it is a non-surgical intervention to occupy space and limit the food carrying capacity of the stomach. This makes you feel full sooner and limits your intake to smaller portions. The procedure is temporary and the balloon is usually removed after 6 months.
Overall, gastric balloon treatment can significantly reduce your portion sizes and help you reach your long-term weight loss goals.

Sleeve Gastrectomy

In this surgery, the surgeon removes a large portion of the stomach (proximally 80%) along the greater curvature (the funds) leaving the stomach shaped like a tube.
The size of the stomach is greatly reduced, restricting the amount of food the patient can eat and making him lose weight. Another effect is that a degree of malabsorption may happen after the surgery which also helps in the weight loss process. The hunger will also decrease as the funds secrete the “ghrelin “hormone which is responsible for feeling hungry.
