Bariatric Surgery in Virginia
You have many options when it comes to Bariatric Surgery in Virginia.
The best treatment for you depends on your past medical history, current lifestyle and overall weight loss goals.
The three most common weight loss surgeries currently performed in the United States are the laparoscopic adjustable gastric band, the gastric sleeve surgery and gastric bypass.
Other surgical options include a biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch.
What is Laparoscopic Surgery?
There are many benefits from the laparoscopic surgical approach.
During a laparoscopic surgery procedure, your surgeon will make several cuts in order to insert small tools including a camera to perform your procedure.
This surgical method is great for those who are very obese or whom have undergone surgery of the stomach in the past.
However, there are some cases where you may require open surgery. Your doctor will be able to identify which method is best for you.
Your doctor will surely discuss with you the lifestyle changes necessary that you will need to make in conjunction with your surgery.
An altered diet and dedicated exercise regimen are key to maintaining the weight loss achieved through weight loss surgery.
