About Bariatric Surgeon

These types of surgeries are usually an option for people with a body mass index (BMI) over 40 who have associated health issues like type 2 diabetes or heart disease.

Bariatric surgeons usually perform two basic types of surgeries namely- restrictive surgeries and malabsorptive surgeries. While restrictive surgeries involve restricting the size of the stomach and slowing down digestion, malabsorptive surgeries are more invasive in nature and are performed by removing parts of the digestive tracts that leads to interfering with the absorption of the calories.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which are the most popular procedures performed by a Weight Loss Surgeon in Dubai?

Weight loss surgeons in Dubai performs various types of weight-loss surgeries. The surgeons perform the procedure with the help of technologically advanced equipment. The surgeons perform the following types of weight loss surgeries in Dubai:

  • Gastric bypass: Roux-en-Y gastric bypass is another name for gastric bypass surgery. After this surgery, the food partially bypasses the digestion and absorption process. During this procedure, the doctor forms a small stomach pouch through stapling. The doctor then connects this pouch to the small intestine. Through gastric bypass, the person achieves fullness earlier. As the food bypasses some part of the gastrointestinal tract, the person also absorbs relatively fewer calories.
  • Gastric band: During this procedure, the doctor places a band around the stomach. This reduces the capacity of the stomach, and patients feel fullness sooner. The gastric band is also known as laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding. The doctor frequently tightens the band.
  • Sleeve Gastrectomy: Gastric sleeve surgery is a permanent method for weight loss. In this method, the surgeon removes most of the stomach. A banana-shaped stomach remained after the surgery. The patients may have side effects after this surgery as this surgery may also remove those parts of the stomach that secretes chemicals.
  • Biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch: This surgery combines gastric sleeve surgery and gastric bypass surgery. This surgery is more effective in weight loss than other surgeries such as gastric band or gastric sleeve surgery. After performing the gastric sleeve surgery, the doctor also divides the intestine into two parts. It reduces the gastric capacity as well as reduces calorie absorption.
  • Intra-gastric balloon: It is a temporary procedure for weight loss. In this process, the surgeons place a balloon filled with air into the stomach. The balloon remains in the stomach for six months. The balloon reduces the capacity of the stomach to take food resulting in a low-calorie intake.
