Weight Loss Surgery

   

Weight loss surgery in India is usually done through Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, which is a surgery done for obesity. It changes the stomach and small intestine to cause weight loss by restricting food intake and making the body unable to absorb as many calories from the food (this is done by bypassing the first part of the small intestine, where many of the

calories from food are usually absorbed). This surgery treats severe obesity.

Doctors’ indicator for this surgery is the BMI index which determines how overweight or obese you are. A normal BMI is 18.5-25.

Roux-en-Y gastric bypass is a weight loss option for people with:

  1. BMI greater than 40
  2. BMI 35-39.9 and a life-threatening condition, such as heart disease or diabetes
  3. BMI 35-39.9 with severe physical limitations that affect employment, mobility, and family life

Weight Loss Surgical Procedures in India

This surgical procedure is started by placing an IV line in your arm. You receive your fluids and medicines through this line during the procedure. The doctor will place a breathing tube through your mouth and into your throat. This will help you breathe during surgery. You will also have a catheter placed in your bladder to drain urine.

Your doctor will make an 8-10 inch cut to open the abdomen. Your doctor will use surgical staples to create a small pouch at the top of your stomach. This pouch, which can hold about one cup of food, will be your new, smaller stomach. A normal stomach can hold 4-6 cups of food. Next, the doctor will cut the small intestine and attach it to the new pouch. With the intestinal bypass, food will now move from the new stomach pouch to the middle section of the small intestine. It will skip the lower stomach and the upper section of the small intestine. Finally, the upper section of the small intestine will be attached to the middle section of the small intestine. This will allow fluid that the lower stomach makes to move down the upper section of the small intestine and into the middle section. Once the bypass is completed, the incisions will be closed with staples or stitches.

Possible Complications…
Though the surgery is totally hassle free, some complications may prop in subsequently which may include Nutritional deficiencies (you will need to take vitamins to get adequate amounts of vitamin B12, iron, and calcium), bleeding, infection, blood clots, bowel obstruction, diarrhea, complications of general anesthesia As a word of caution, factors that increase the risk of complications include smoking, recent or chronic illness (eg, kidney disease), Diabetes, old age and heart or lung disease.
