Bariatrics surgery which also called weight –loss surgery is one of the solutions for your obesity
For better understanding of these methods some useful terms should be explained :
as you know the small intestine’s function is to absorb nutrients and calories that you consume every day, in the malabsorption method they try to bypass or shorten the small size of the small intestine which can reduce the absorption of the extra calories and nutrients that you may receive.
Restriction: the surgeon tries to limit or correct the size of the stomach that can lead to a reduction in the amount of food that you want to eat, finally less food makes you lose weight.
Laparoscopic Adjustable gastric banding:
An inflatable balloon that will attach around the upper part of the stomach to control the amount of the food passing to the entry of the stomach will help to feel satisfied from eating sooner.
the surgeon will fix it with the skin of the stomach’s surface. The band has a pipe that is connected to port which can remove or add fluid in which as a result the size of the band can increase or decrease.

Biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch :
The most powerful method to help people with high BMI which use two methods at the same time, This method is used to decrease the size of the stomach as well as the decreasing amount of nutrition absorption.
The surgeon starts with removing the bigger part of the stomach (sleeve)
It is so important to know that the surgeon will save all nerves during the removal of the stomach to keep the stomach function normally.
Let us explain Duodenal switch which will use with the surgeon:
in this method, part of the intestine (duodenum) will remain and the doctor closes the middle part of the intestine off then connect the end of the separated part of the intestine to the duodenum.
Biliopancreatic diversion: the part of the intestine which is separated remains in the body and it is connected to the end of the intestine and allows pancreatic digestive juice to move through this part.
