How it works?

There are many types of weight loss surgeries. For example some surgeries prevent stretching of the stomach to its full size. Usually stomach is expected to carry about six cups of food. So, after the weight loss operation, it is made to hold only a cup. So, patient will start feeling full stomach faster. This is the reason they will start eating less hence lose weight.

Some other surgeries even work by bypassing the part of intestine. This results in absorbing fewer calories by the body. Majority of the fedmeoperasjon performed in Norwegians in Riga, Latvia are now laparoscopic. This is same even around the world. Majority of the fedmeoperasjon use small cuts. Through this laparoscopic technology, big cuts are avoided.

Surgeon will perform small cuts in the belly. In most of the cases there will be 5- 6 small cuts. These are made to insert very small tools and even camera into the body. He will perform the operation with the help of video captured by the camera. If this isn’t work, then surgeon should have to choose making a large cut in the belly along the middle.

There is a weight loss surgery known as gastric bypass surgery. This is considered as most common among weight loss surgeries available. In this surgeon should divide the stomach to two parts, one small and other large. Then he should staple small stomach to make tiny pouch.

Later, he will disconnect this stomach pouch from first part of small intestines. Later he will reconnect stomach to the other part of the small intestine. Hence it is called bypass surgery. After the surgery, patients will start feeling full even for small quantity of food. This will help them to lose weight. Bypass also takes care of reducing absorption of calories, hence patients will drop weight. Other most common is laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding surgery.

Weight loss surgeries can help over weight patients in many ways. But there are myths about these surgeries. People should not get confused with obesity and weight problem. Obesity is generated in the presence of metabolic disease. So, when that is corrected patients can get relief from weight issues.
