Overview – Weight Loss Surgery
The purpose of weight loss surgery (gastric banding surgery) is to create a small pouch in the upper part of the stomach with a controlled and adjustable stoma, without stapling, thus limiting food intake.
For weight loss, the gastric banding procedure is recommended as an alternative to the traditional gastric bypass surgery for several reasons:
– No cutting of the stomach.
– No stapling of the stomach.
– Calibrated pouch and stomach size.
– Can be adjusted to patient’s needs after surgery with no operation to adjust the stomach.
– Laparoscopic removal possible.
– Fully reversible.
– Short hospital stay (does not exceed 48 hours).
In a gastric banding procedure, an inflatable band is placed around the upper part of the stomach to create a smaller stomach pouch. This restricts the amount of food that can be consumed at one time and increases the time taken for the stomach to empty. The patient achieves sustained weight loss by limiting food intake, reducing appetite, and slowing digestion.
Gastric banding is performed using laparoscopic surgery and usually results in a shorter hospital stay, faster recovery, smaller scars, and less pain than open surgical procedures. Because no part of the stomach is stapled or removed, and the patient’s intestines are not re-routed, he or she can continue to absorb nutrients from food normally. Gastric bands are made entirely of biocompatible materials, so they are able to stay in the patient’s body without causing harm.
Not all patients are suitable for laparoscopy. Patients who are extremely obese, who have had previous abdominal surgery, or have complicating medical problems may require the open approach. You will have a complete medical evaluation to determine the best approach for you and your deposit will apply to the appropriate procedure.
A gastric band device is introduced through tiny (1cm) incisions in the abdomen and is placed around the upper part of the stomach. The resulting pouch (or the “new stomach”) dramatically reduces the functional capacity of the stomach. The band has a balloon from the inside that is adjustable and can reduce stomach size, thus prolonging the period of fullness.
The band is fitted around the uppermost part of the stomach, forming a 15cc small pouch. It is designed so that it can be inflated or deflated at any time after the operation. This helps the patient continually lose weight until they reach their goals. The adjustment is a simple procedure is painless and can be done at any time.
Laparoscopic (minimally invasive) bariatric surgery patients generally feel better, spend more time doing recreational and physical activities, benefit from enhanced productivity and economic opportunities, and have more self-confidence than they did prior to surgery.
There are different approaches to gastric banding procedures and you will have a complete examination and full discussion with the surgeon to determine the best approach for you.
The procedure can take from one to two hours to complete.
There will be a degree of discomfort following surgery. Swelling occurs but usually begins to subside in several days. A degree of swelling may continue for longer periods, but eventually diminishes.
Recovery is rapid and patients are able to drive and return to work within just a few days. Complete diet and exercise information is included.
Only the very best highest quality FDA-approved materials are used in all treatments.
For the Weight Loss procedure, the deal price is $9425. This is the same procedure generally available in the U.S. for up to $23500. This ArrivaGroups deal is for the most common weight loss procedure (gastric banding) and is appropriate for many of the cases. If your case is more complex, or if combination surgeries are desired, the price may vary however your full deposit will apply.
You may travel to Costa Rica anytime within one (1) year after the deal closing date. You will have plenty of time to organize your trip. No deposit or pre-payment is required and the price of your surgery will be held for you until your arrival.
