The Roux-en-Y gastric bypass or RYGB is a kind of weight loss surgery, which decreases the total size of the stomach to a little pouch of the size of an egg. This process is mainly done by stapling off a percentage of the stomach. Therefore, this process decreases the total amount of the food that the patients can take in their regular meals. Next the surgeon attaches this pouch to the small intestine directly, bypassing the majority of the stomach along with the upper area of the small intestine.
This thing decreases the total amount of calories and fat that one absorbs from all the food items that people mainly eat for losing their weight. At Beams Weight Loss Clinic, we offer two types of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery procedures like as the laparoscopic surgery or as the standard open surgery.
In case of the laparoscopic process, a lightened tube is used along with a tiny camera. This tool is then pushed into the abdomen through several small incisions. On the other hand, in case of the standard open surgery, a large cut is made in the abdomen of the patients to reach to the stomach. At Beams Weight Loss Clinic, our surgeons mainly prefer to conduct the laparoscopic surgery process as in this manner, the patients don’t have to stay in the hospitals for long and the patients also recover more quickly.
Besides, by going through the laparoscopic process, the patients can also have the benefits like smaller scars, less risk of getting any infection or hernia and smaller scars. Almost all the surgery procedures performed in our clinic are done in the state-of-the-art minimally invasive approach. But whatever may be the option, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery is not a cosmetic surgery process and it is mainly done to decrease the health consequences that are related to the clinically severe obesity.
So, at the Beams Weight Loss Clinic, we assist our patients in understanding the seriousness of this surgery process along with the benefits and the risks. Another thing we make our patients understand that this surgery is not meant for all the obese people. Thus, we choose the patients very carefully by arranging several appointments and psychological consultation with the expert Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgeons of our clinic before scheduling the final surgery. Apart from that, the specialist surgeons of our clinic also evaluate the patients on the individual basis that describe the appropriateness of this surgery procedure. The evaluation is mainly made of the factors like the stature, previous abdominal surgeries and the weight of the patients.
At Beams Weight Loss Clinic, our patients get benefitted from the multidisciplinary approach that we follow to assist our patients in losing weight. Here we strongly believe that this surgery is only the beginning of the entire procedure and it is important for the patients to change the lifestyle to get long term effects of weight maintenance.
