The LAP-BAND is a silicone band designed to reduce the amount of food it takes to achieve fullness, altering appetite and encouraging weight loss. During this minimally-invasive procedure, the LAP-BAND is used to diminish appetite and deter over-eating.
GASTRIC BAND REVISION
Gastric band procedures are safe, popular, and effective ways to lose excess weight and maintain a healthier lifestyle for many people. But sometimes patients elect to have their gastric bands adjusted or removed if they experience a decrease in weight loss or discomfort from the band’s positioning.
The gastric balloon is an FDA-approved device that gets placed in your stomach without surgery. With the gastric balloon weight loss program, patients who follow the program can expect to lose around 30 pounds of excess weight (although results vary) and achieve the lifestyle goals they want.
The Obalon weight loss system employs the use of a new way to install gastric balloons, combined with a dietary and behavioral modification program, to facilitate weight loss in adults aged 22 or older. Gastric balloons, or balloons that are inflated inside the stomach to stimulate the feeling of fullness after eating less, are a minimally invasive, nonsurgical option for people who have tried diet and exercise but have been unable to lose weight as they should to be healthy.
GASTRIC SLEEVE SURGERY
Gastric Sleeve surgery is one of the most popular and successful weight loss options available when it comes to bariatric surgery. The Gastric Sleeve procedure is sometimes called the Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy or Sleeve Gastrectomy. Each name refers to the same procedure.
DUAL GASTRIC BALLOON
Since the dual gastric balloon simply works with the body to control portions, no special diet is required for patients, who then can still delight in a number of food options without the need for any supplemental medication.
ENDOSCOPIC SLEEVE GASTROPLASTY
With many options in surgical weight loss procedures, it can be hard to decipher the benefits and decide what treatment will be best for you. If you struggle to lose excess weight, but don’t want to undergo surgery that will involve taking time off work or a long recovery, it may be time to consider Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty.
