Sleeve Gastroplasty Cape Coral Weight Regain Two Reasons
Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty is only one of the many tools you should anticipate using to improve your health.
Physical activity, healthy lifestyle habits, changes in diet, stress management and motivation to make changes are all critical to your success after the ESG procedure.
The Endoscopic Sleeve in Cape Coral uses an endoscopic suturing device to reduce the size of the stomach by 70 to 80 percent.
With reduced stomach size, patients will feel full sooner, and the stomach will not be able to secrete as many hunger-inducing hormones. The highlight of this procedure is that it is NON-SURGICAL.
The fact that it is non-surgical translates to no incisions, no scars, and little or no pain after the procedure, which usually lasts under two hours. In essence, the ESG is an even less invasive version of the minimally-invasive laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG).
Advantages of Endoscopic Gastric Sleeve SurgeryLiving with obesity in a world that is obsessed with fitness and beauty can be a curse. Being obese also has implications that are more than just cosmetic. Carrying excess weight can lead to several health problems such as cancer, heart disease and diabetes.Despite the consequences, almost two-thirds of the American population is overweight or obese. The alarming rise in the obesity levels has also lead to the popularity of weight loss surgeries. Among the various bariatric procedures that have become popular in the last few years, Gastric Sleeve Surgery, also referred to as Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy, has emerged as one of the most popular, and also the safest.In a Gastric Sleeve surgery, the bariatric surgeon restricts the amount of food that a patient eats by removing a major portion of the stomach and shaping it into a sleeve or tube. The sleeve shaped stomach is then closed with staples. An additional surgery may be required if the patient loses excessive weight after the first surgery. This additional surgery, Gastric Bypass or duodenal Switch Surgery, is carried out after at least six months after the first surgery.Is Gastric Sleeve right for you?The decision to undergo a weight loss surgery is a major one since it involves a dramatic change in one's lifestyle habits after the surgery. Also, it is often tough to choose among the various bariatric procedures available for weight loss. Ideally, a consultation with a bariatric surgeon will help one decide as to which weight loss surgery may be the best for you. However, it is also helpful to consider certain pre-requisites for a bariatric procedure that may help you to determine if you are a suitable candidate for the surgery.In general, these are the conditions that help determine whether one may be considered the right candidate for Gastric sleeve:1. Patient should be aged between 18-65 years.2. The patient should have a BMI (Body Mass Index) of more than 40. This usually amounts to being overweight by 100 pounds in case of men and 80 pounds in case of women.3. If the BMI of the patient falls in the range of 35-39, he may be considered a candidate for Gastric sleeve if he is suffering from an obesity related health problem such as sleep apnea, joint problem or diabetes.4. Patient should have a history of five years or more of extreme overweight condition5. Absence of Hernia Hiatus or other gastric problems.6. He/ She should also have a history of failed weight loss attempts that were based on diet or drugs.7. Patient should be mentally prepared to make dramatic, long-term lifestyle changes after the surgery8. Patient should be healthy enough to take the physical stress of a bariatric procedure and accept surgical risk parametersApart from these conditions, the candidate for the surgery may also have to make a few lifestyle changes before the surgery to ensure the success of the surgery. Here are a few things that a surgeon may require you to do before the surgery:1. Quit smoking, as it increases the risk of infections2. Observe a special diet a few weeks before the surgeryAfter the surgery, the patients may have to stay in the hospital for a few days. The patient has to stay on a liquid diet for about two weeks after the surgery, which is then replaced by semi-solid foods for another two weeks. After this period, the patient is allowed to eat solid food. The complications that may occur due to the gastric sleeve surgery include blood clots, leaks in the sleeve and infections. In certain cases, the patients may regain the weight lost after the surgery.Patients may lose 50-80 pounds in the first one year after the procedure. The patients also have to bring about changes in their lifestyle after the surgery, which includes exercising regularly, changing eating habits and so on.The cost of a gastric sleeve surgery can be as high as $10,000 in the U.S. However, one may scout for locations abroad for affordable options, such as Gastric Sleeve in Tijuana.
How is ESG done in Cape Coral ?
Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty is performed in the surgery center as an outpatient procedure. General anesthesia is used for the procedure, so it does not involve any pain.
The procedure is done using an endoscope, a flexible tube with a camera and an endoscopic suturing device attached. The endoscope is inserted down your throat into the stomach.
The tiny camera allows our specialist to see and perform the operation within your stomach without making incisions in the abdomen.
Using the endoscope, the doctor places approximately 12 sutures in the stomach. The sutures placed will alter the structure of your stomach, leaving it in a tube shape. The reshaped stomach then restricts the number of calories your body can absorb.
The procedure takes about 90 minutes. After the endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty, you’ll awaken in a recovery room, where medical staff monitors you for any complications.
The majority of people return home the same day, after recovering from sedation. Some people might require a short admission to the hospital for one day or less for observation after the procedure.
