The Most Common Weight Loss Surgeries
After my friend Nikki got weight loss surgery, I found out that there are a bunch of different surgeries.
Below is an illustration of a natural stomach. Scroll down for illustrations of three common and six less-common bariatric (weight loss) surgeries.
|The Most Common Weight Loss Surgeries
|In a Gastric Bypass operation, all but the very top section of the stomach is bypassed. A portion of small intestines is used to re-route the food.
|| A Gastric Sleeve is the removal of a large portion of the stomach, leaving a banana-shaped stomach.
||An inflatable silicone device is placed around the top portion of the stomach. The patient feels full when the top portion of her stomach is filled.
|Less Common Weight Loss Surgeries
|Gastric Carpool surgery adds a special new tunnel, which allows high-calorie food a quick trip past the nutritional-absorption points in the stomach wall.
||Gastric Bowtie surgery uses a crisp knot in the duodenum to restrict the flow of unneeded food.
||The Gastric Button surgery uses an oversized coat button to divide and restrict the volume of the stomach. If necessary, a second button can be affixed to the patient's mouth.
|The Gastric Escher procedure creates a gastrointestinal illusion, tricking the patient into thinking he is continuously eating.
||The Gastric Labyrinth creates a maze of twisty little passages, all alike. Only a small portion of food ever exits the stomach.
||An extreme, though temporary measure involves removal of any large meal, such as one from Chipotle, through a long opening with a surgical-grade Ziplock seal.
