In the surgery a large part of the stomach is removed in a sleeve-like manner, and in this technique the patient feels full quickly which helps him lose weight significantly and in a short period of time. These operations achieve very good results, as laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy gives the patient faster recovery time, better results, and less danger. There are two types of sleeve gastrectomy, the first is surgically the other is endoscopically. During laparoscopic sleeves, about seventy-five percent of the stomach is removed, leaving a narrow metal “tube” or “sleeve”; the intestines are not removed during the process of sleeve gastrectomy. It takes one to two hours to complete the endoscopic sleeve gastrectomy.
Botox injections to the stomach are not much different from the idea of removing wrinkles in the way Botox works, our stomach by its very nature performs the digestive process like all other parts of the digestive system by constricting the muscles of its walls and its sphincter movement that digests food and pushes it from the stomach to the intestines, just as the stomach becomes empty of food, we start to feel hungry again. Gastric BOTOX injections cause temporary paralysis of the walls, all it does is reduce the strength of stomach contractions and push food into the intestines. Gastric Botox injections are generally performed using a medical endoscope, which is inserted from the mouth to the stomach, so it is not a surgical procedure and no medical incisions or wounds are made in order to reach the stomach. The endoscope allows the doctor to see his way from the mouth to the area where it should be injected in the stomach. The needle that injects is at the end of the endoscope, and once the doctor reaches his destination performs the injection process.
The gastric balloon process suits people who have an increase of approximately 15 kilos. and During the process the balloon is inserted into the stomach through the mouth. it varies in terms of the filler material which may be saline or hydrogen gas, as well as in terms of the duration of stay inside the stomach and the resulting weight loss rate, among the most prominent types of stomach balloon used in the following process:
- Reshape Balloon,
- Orbera Balloon
- OBALON Capsules
Gastric balloon capsule
Also called a smart capsule is a compressed balloon in the size of a vitamin capsule that is connected to a fine catheter, and filled with air when it reaches the stomach to give a larger size in the stomach, about one third of the stomach, which helps in feeling full faster and thus reduce a person’s food consumption. The gastric capsule does not need an endoscope to insert it or an anesthetic such as a stomach balloon, but is a simple non-surgical procedure, and does not need to be removed either as it fades on its own after 4 months.
It is a successful option for those with a BMI of more than 45, resulting in more weight loss than gastric banding, the results of which also outweigh the process of gastric sleeve and this type of process is characterized by the fact that the lost weight resulting from gastric bypass remains constant in the long run.
Types of gastric bypass
- The traditional gastric bypass is divided into a proximal or distal gastric bypass.
- Micro-Pouch Gastric Bypass
- single anastomosis sleeve ileal (SASI)
- Micro-Pouch Gastric Bypass
This technology has become one of the most popular technologies, and the most important feature of it is that it is reversible to the original state, in addition to its encouraging results.
So that the process of Micro-Pouch Gastric Bypass process boils down to isolating the upper part of the stomach and turning it into a tube, and then linking it to an episode of Intestines.
It was named this way because the food pathway is divided into the stomach into two paths: The first path is the usual path of food. The second path of food is from the stomach to the end of the small intestine directly, bypassing a large spaces,
