Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (VSG): Also known as "the sleeve". This surgery once used as a first stage surgery in patients with a very high BMI, has now become a stand alone surgery for patients wanting a procedure less invasive than the gastric bypass, yet they don't want to or cannot commit to fills and frequent follow up care that the Lap Band requires. This surgical weight loss procedure is used for severely obese individuals weighing more than 100 lbs over their ideal body weight. The procedure has great promise.
The Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass: This surgery is a combination of a restrictive procedure (similar to the VSG) and a malabsorption surgery. The patient will be restricted to eating a small amount of food and will not absorb all the calories consumed. A gastric bypass can be performed using laparoscopic surgery or open surgery. Most surgeons prefer the laparoscopic approach. This surgery is known as the "Gold Standard" bariatric surgery in the Untied States.
Mini-Gastric Bypass: This surgery is a modified version of the Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass. The stomach is fashioned into a long, narrow tube. The new small stomach is attached to the small intestine about 6 feet down. The larger stomach is sealed and left unattached. The Mini Bypass is done laporoscopically through five 1 inch incisions. The simplicity of its construction reduces the challenge of laparoscopic surgery. The mini gastric bypass typically takes 30 - 40 minutes to complete.
Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy: You will be on a modified diet that includes liquids and soft foods and will progress to a regular diet. Your hunger will be greatly diminished but you will still need to avoid sweets and junk foods and should incorporate exercise in to your day.
Gastric Bypass: You will be on a modified diet that includes liquids and soft foods. You will progress very slowly to solid foods. You will need to consume non-calorie liquids between meals only. You may not drink any liquids ½ hour before eating and 1 hour after meals. You should avoid sweets and high fat foods as they may cause you to feel ill and experience with is known as "dumping syndrome". You should incorporate exercise in to your day.
Duodenal Switch: You may require three to four weeks of recovery after Duodenal Switch surgery. You can consume only fluids immediately following surgery. You will progress to pureed foods and ultimately solids. You may experience difficulty consuming liquids immediately after surgery because of swelling around the stomach and small bowel. Your surgeon will likely prescribe painkillers in the days after surgery. Your most weight loss occurs during the first 12 to 18 months after surgery. You can expect to lose about 70% of your current weight and about 35% of your BMI.
