Duodenal switch is a type of weight loss surgery typically reserved for morbidly obese patients by shrinking the size of the stomach, limiting food intake, and by rerouting the small intestine and digestive loop to absorb fewer calories.
Gastric bypass surgery alters thedigestive tract by attaching a small stomach pouch to thesmall intestine. By bypassing part of the intestine,the number of calories your body canabsorb is limited, a benefit not provided by a sleeve gastrectomy or the lap band.
Lap band surgery involves placing an inflatable band around the top portion of the stomach, limiting its ability to expand. Because it can't hold as much food before you feel full, you eat less and—if all goes according to plan—lose weight.
A panniculectomy removes the pannus, or the hanging flap of loose skin and fat, from the abdomen. Unlike a tummy tuck, this surgery does not tighten abdominal muscles.
SculpSure is a non-invasive laser treatment for the reduction of stubborn fat in areas like the abdomen and flanks. The procedure takes 25 minutes, is minimally painful, and requires no downtime. Clinical trials show an average of 24% reduction in fat volume after a single treatment.
A sleeve gastrectomy (also known as vertical sleeve gastrectomy) is an irreversible surgery to reduce the size of the stomach, thus promoting weight loss by reducing the amount of food you can consume. Unlike gastric bypass, it doesn't alter the digestive tract. The procedure typically requires one to two days in the hospital.
