Some surgeries and gadgets can be used to control your hunger pangs and give you a fitter and healthier body. If you have tried every other trick in the book including a vigorous exercise regime and a strict diet that you could never imagine you would ever follow, but nothing has worked, maybe this is the solution for you. Bariatric surgery and a few gadgets/devices that can be placed inside your body do give results. Let’s have a look at them:
1. Vagal Blockade
This device looks like a pacemaker. It is used to send regular electrical impulses to the vagus nerve inside your brain. This signals your mind that your stomach is full. This nerve extends from your brain to your stomach and when manipulated in the right manner, can create a feeling of being satiated for a long time, thereby reducing hunger pangs considerably. The surgeon is going to place this device under your rib cage via minor surgery. A vagal blockade can be operated by remote control and you can adjust its settings very easily.
It is the least invasive procedure and it can be completed within less than an hour and a half. You will require general anesthesia and the only downside to this procedure is that the battery needs to be replaced regularly.
2. Gastric Banding
Gastric banding is a very common and one of the least invasive procedures that are being performed across the world to help people manage and reduce their weight. The surgeon is going to place the adjustable silicone band just around the upper part of your stomach. It is adjustable and you can control the amount of food your stomach can hold as per your will. You can get a lap band by Dr. Garber and talk to him about how effective it is going to be for your fitness goals.
This procedure is FDA-approved and highly suitable for people with a BMI of 30 and 34.9. A few things that you might want to consider before going for it are your insurance plans and any pre-existing health conditions that you might have.
3. Gastric Bypass Surgery
Gastric bypass surgery is one of the most common procedures performed today in the world. This bariatric surgery is going to divide your stomach into two parts. The surgeon is going to seal the upper area of your stomach. Then the upper stomach will be connected directly to the lower section of your small intestine. This creates a shortcut for the food you eat. This means that the food will be bypassing a part of your stomach. This way, your body is going to absorb fewer calories from the food you eat, thereby assisting you in weight loss.
Which Weight Loss Surgery Suits You?
This is going to be entirely your decision. It will depend on your current health situation and your body type as well. Make sure to compare these procedures with one another and also pay attention to their pros and cons before you make a choice.
