Every new year starts the same way. We tell ourselves that we are going to finally lose the weight and get healthy, but fad diets, exercise, magic pills and juice cleanses never seem to work.
Perhaps its time to consider an alternative way to bust that fat and get some help from a professional.
Bariatric (weight loss) surgery is a way to attack weight loss head on by manipulating your body to feel fuller faster.
Below are four common types of surgery and how they work.
In sleeve gastrectomy surgery your doctor will remove a portion of your stomach and rework what is left into a tube shape.
This limits the amount of food that your stomach can hold and rewires the hormones that signal your brain when you are hungry.
A duodenal switch surgery is where large portion of your stomach is removed and your doctor reworks your system to guide food to avoid most of your small intestine.
Basically, you stomach is smaller, and less calories and nutrients are absorbed.
Gastric bypass surgery focuses the stomach so that only a small section of the upper stomach is able to take in food and your small intestine are rerouted to restrict calorie and nutrient intake.
Adjustable Gastric Banding
In an adjustable gastric banding surgery a band with an inflatable balloon is attached to the upper section of your stomach, which restricts the amount of food you can eat and leaves you feeling fuller sooner.
The Bottom Line
If you are ready to make serious changes to your overall health and wellness, weight loss surgery might be the best option for you.
Don’t let another day go by where you aren’t fulfilling your resolution to take control of your health.
