Obesity is one of the most frequent diseases globally, in children and adults. Since 1975 obesity has increased threefold worldwide, and today more than 39% of adults are overweight, while 13% are obese. When obesity is severe, it is a disease that does not respond to any type of diet or medication. The most appropriate treatment in this type of case is laparoscopic weight loss surgery.
WHAT IS LAPAROSCOPIC WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY?
It is a type of non-invasive intervention that consists of making small incisions in the abdomen, 1.5 centimetres in diameter. Through these incisions, cannulas are inserted, through which the laparoscope is inserted. The instruments have a small video camera attached to one end so that it projects enlarged images of the stomach and other organs in real-time.
The surgeon thus proceeds to the introduction of the intragastric balloon. It is a soft silicone balloon that is inserted into the stomach and filled with a sterile saline solution. Thus, the balloon acquires a considerable size, passing into the intestine and floating inside the stomach.
The main advantage offered by laparoscopic thinning surgery has to do with the postoperative period. During the intervention, no large wounds are made in the abdominal wall, so that the patient’s recovery process is faster and less painful. In addition, the risk of suffering hernias and other disorders derived from surgery in the future is significantly reduced.
It is a functional surgery, so the results are not exactly the same in all patients. It is important that they change their lifestyle habits, following a healthy and balanced diet, and practising physical exercise.
