Currently, there are two types of weight reduction surgery that you may undergo. Malabsorptive surgeries alter digestion, resulting to poor food digestion and incomplete body absorption; therefore most of the calories are eliminated in your stool. Restrictive procedures on the hand function by limiting your food intake.
There are numerous types of malabsorptive surgeries for weight loss. Most of these procedures involve having a bypass of the small intestine, thus restricting the absorption of fats and calories.
Biliopancretic diversion is a type of malabsorptive weight loss surgery that reduces the amount of food eaten and alters the typical digestion processes. It adjusts the small intestine’s anatomy to redirect the bile as well as the pancreatic juices so they’ll come in contact with the ingested food near the middle or end part of the small intestine.
These weight loss procedures work by changing the size of the stomach to decrease the amount of food that can be eaten at one time. However, it does not affect the normal process of the body’s digestion and absorption of calories.
This surgery entails the creation of a small stomach pouch located in the stomach’s upper portion. The narrowed stomach capacity permits the patient to feel full even with less food intake. By reducing the overall food consumption, the patient will take advantage of sustained weight loss.
Combined Malabsorptive and Restrictive Surgery
Today, there are medical weight reduction surgeries that integrate the principles of both the malabsorptive and restrictive weight reduction surgeries, known as Gastric Bypass Roux-en-Y.
This type of weight loss surgery involves the formation of small stomach pouch with the remaining space in the stomach entirely stapled shut and then divided from the created pouch. The passage from the stomach pouch directly empties into the lower part of the jejunum, therefore bypassing the supposed calorie absorption. By incorporating malabsorption to a restrictive procedure for weight loss, the consumed food is delayed from blending with the bile and pancreatic juices that make the absorption of nutrients possible. The outcome is even with small amount of food, you’ll get early sense of fullness, reducing the desire to eat more.
