GET STARTED

Weight loss procedures can be categorised based on:

Approach of intervention: Non-Surgical or Surgical Weight Loss

Mechanism of weight loss: Restrictive, Malabsorptive, Combination

Depending on Surgical / Non surgical

Non-Surgical Weight Loss Procedures

Non-surgical weight loss procedures offer effective alternatives for individuals seeking to shed excess weight without undergoing surgery. These interventions are done using endoscope under anaesthesia and provide targeted approaches to weight management. They are typically recommended for individuals with less severe obesity or those who prefer non-invasive methods. Non-surgical procedures can lead to significant weight loss results and often combined with lifestyle modifications for optimal outcomes. Intragastric Balloon Insertion, Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty are commonly done non-surgical weight loss procedures.

Surgical Procedures for Weight Loss

Surgical procedures offer effective solutions for weight loss by physically altering the digestive system. These interventions are typically recommended for individuals with severe obesity or those who have not responded well to non-surgical methods. Each surgical option offers unique benefits and considerations, tailored to individual needs and goals. While these procedures can provide significant weight loss results, they also require careful consideration and consultation with a healthcare professional to determine the most appropriate approach. Common surgical procedures include sleeve gastrectomy, gastric bypass, mini gastric bypass, SADI-S, tummy tuck, and liposuction.

Depending on Method

Restrictive Procedures

Restrictive procedures aim to reduce caloric intake by shrinking the stomach’s capacity. This method induces a feeling of fullness quicker, leading patients to consume less food. Common restrictive procedures include adjustable gastric banding, vertical sleeve gastrectomy (gastric sleeve), and the gastric balloon.

Malabsorptive Procedures

Malabsorptive procedures alter the digestive system to reduce the body’s absorption of calories from food. While they often result in significant weight loss, they also carry a higher risk of complications. Currently, all malabsorptive procedures are combined with restrictive techniques. Stand-alone malabsorptive procedures are no longer performed.

Combination Procedures

Combination procedures utilize both restrictive and malabsorptive techniques. Restriction limits food intake, while malabsorption reduces nutrient absorption. Popular combination procedures include Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, Mini Gastric Bypass and SADI-S which produce substantial weight loss results.
