What Is Weight Loss?

Weight loss is defined as the reduction in body mass and body fat. However, severe cases of weight loss may also involve loss of lean mass, protein, and other substrates in the body. Weight loss can be conscious, like when you go on a diet, or unintentional, when it is linked to a disease like infection or cancer. A conscious effort to reduce weight also involves undergoing weight loss surgeries that are considered the most effective treatments to treat obesity. Moreover, weight loss does not just treat obesity but also prevents other medical conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, arthritis, acid reflux, and many more.

Treatment And Its Procedure

Gastric Balloon Treatment And Its Procedure

Gastric Ballooning Treatment is a simple weight loss procedure that initiates weight loss by swallowing a soft yet durable gastric balloon into your stomach. This weight loss treatment helps overweight patients eliminate excess weight without surgery. The gastric balloon is a stomach balloon, an inflatable medical device temporarily placed into the stomach that naturally exits the body. The balloon helps induce weight loss by enhancing satiety, slowing gastric emptying, and minimizing the food eaten during each meal.

Non-invasive and non-endoscopic gastric balloon treatment is a promising substitute for traditional endoscopic balloon treatment. Pristyn Care now offers the Allurion Program, using the world’s first swallowable balloon pill. Allurion Gastric Balloon Treatment results can last a lifetime, and you can achieve 95% sustained weight loss in 1 year.

Bariatric Surgery And Its Procedure

>Bariatric surgery is a surgical operation that helps people lose excessive weight and works by modifying our digestive system. It modifies the stomach, and sometimes the small intestine — to control the calorie quantity you consume and absorb. In addition, it lowers the number of hunger signals that move from the digestive system to the brain. But bariatric surgery is not an easy job; it requires adequate preparation and deep-rooted lifestyle changes to be successful.

Before undergoing bariatric surgery, you need to consult a bariatric surgeon. The surgeon will understand your concerns and preconditions and if there is a genuine need for the surgery. In addition, the surgeon will also ask about your medical history, perform a physical exam, and order blood tests if required.>

During the consultation and at consecutive steps, the surgeon will discuss your weight-loss aims and which type of bariatric surgery suits you. Bariatric surgery has three kinds: Gastric Bypass, Gastric Sleeve Surgery, and Biliopancreatic Diversion with Duodenal Switch (BPD-DS). Most types of bariatric surgery are performed using general anesthesia and laparoscopically.

A laparoscope is a small instrument with a camera attached. The laparoscope is inserted through small incisions in the abdomen. The tiny camera on the tip of the laparoscope helps the surgeon see and operate inside the abdomen without making large incisions. Bariatric surgery usually takes several hours, and depending on the type of surgery performed, you may need to stay a few days in the hospital.
