Gastric Bypass Surgery – Procedure and Costs

The most common type of bariatric surgery is gastric bypass surgery. In this surgery, the surgeon makes a small pouch in the stomach, so that food intake is limited. A Y-shaped section of the small intestine is attached to the pouch, so that food can pass from the stomach pouch into the intestines. The food bypasses the lower stomach and the beginning of the intestines, meaning less calories are absorbed.

Common Types of Weight Loss Procedures


Gastric Sleeve Surgery – Procedure and Cost

Gastric sleeve surgery or sleeve gastrectomy helps you to lose weight by simply reducing the size of the stomach. The surgery is permanent, as part of the stomach is removed, leaving a smaller “tube” or “sleeve”. The function of the stomach is the same, but people can only eat a small amount before feeling full.

  • Gastric sleeve surgery in the UAE costs around $9,000
  • Gastric sleeve surgery in Germany costs aroudn $14,800
  • Gastric sleeve surgery in Poland costs around $6,700

 

Gastric Band Surgery – Procedure and Cost

Gastric band surgery is often used as a temporary, but effective way to lose weight quickly. The surgeon places an inflatable silicone band around the top of the stomach. This creates a small pouch, meaning that food intake is restricted and you feel full quickly. The band can be inflated using saline solution to adjust the level of restriction. Once a target weight has been met, the band may be removed.

  • Gastric band surgery in the UAE costs around $5,500
  • Gastric band surgery in Germany costs aroudn $8,700
  • Gastric band surgery in Poland costs around $5,400

 

Gastric Balloon – Procedure and Cost

Gastric balloon treatment is a non-surgical option for rapid weight loss. Despite not involving surgery, the procedure requires expert monitoring to ensure the balloon is correctly positioned. The deflated balloon is positioned in the stomach, carefully through the mouth, and then inflated with saline solution. This will make you feel full, and as a result you should eat less. The balloons are usually kept in the stomach for 6 months or 12 months. After this time, results should be visible. In some cases, patients may be given a gastric balloon as a first step, in order to lose weight before other types of bariatric surgery. Gastric balloon procedures are relatively new, and not all bariatric surgery specialists perform this procedure. Because the gastric balloon itself is quite expensive, the procedure price is generally similar around the world.

What is bariatric surgery?

If you are moderately or severely obese, you have probably tried to lose weight in other ways before thinking about bariatric surgery. Non-invasive weight loss methods, such as diet plans, exercise, or weight loss pills, should be discussed and tried under the guidance of a medical professional prior to any invasive treatment. However, for people who are unable to lose weight this way, weight loss surgery can help to improve their quality of life and stop the progression of many illnesses related to obesity.

Bariatric surgery procedures can help to considerably reduce the amount that you are comfortably able to eat, and some procedures also stop calories from being absorbed. They have a very high success rate in terms of causing considerable, and rapid weight loss.

Bariatric surgery has risks associated, especially as patients undergoing the surgery often have health problems related to being overweight. However, many doctors agree that the benefits of surgery outweigh the risks. For many people, bariatric surgery is the only solution to lose weight quickly, and as a result, improve their health.

Losing weight after bariatric surgery comes naturally, as patients require much less food to feel satisfied. In general, after surgery the weight loss is maintained. You should be committed to following diet guidance after the surgery, to ensure you get enough nutrients, and avoid problems like gastric acid reflux or vomiting.

Health risks associated with obesity

Being moderately or severely obese is bad for your health, and can cause lots of potentially life-threatening illnesses. Conditions commonly caused by obesity include cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, arthritis, breathing difficulties, and infertility.

Many of these conditions are reversible, and as you lose weight, your health will improve. Cholesterol levels go down, patients are able to breath better, exercise more easily, and the risk of diabetes and heart disease go down. The sooner you lose weight, the better, as this will prevent serious long-term health problems.

Bariatric surgery – patient story

An active scuba diver, Seth was finding that his increasing weight was starting to impact his favourite hobby. In addition, he was beginning to experience health issues such as high blood pressure and pre-diabetes. Action was needed.

Seth decided to look into weight loss surgery, and after researching several options online felt that Make Medical Trip offered the best opportunity in terms of support. After years working in the hotel industry, Seth was quite comfortable travelling abroad and selected the UAE for treatment as it offered excellent quality of care at affordable price. Interestingly he flew from Thailand to Dubai for the surgery since, contrary to expectations, the surgery was more expensive in Thailand.

In advance of the surgery, Seth contacted a medical tourism agency that was a member of Make Medical Trip, who were able to answer all his questions and coordinate the surgery. The surgery itself was a success and today Seth is already noticing dramatic improvements in his lifestyle and health. (he has lost 50 lbs, start weight 308 lbs).

“I was gaining weight and beginning to encounter health problems – I was pre-diabetic and had high blood pressure. I wanted to take action before the problems became irreversible. I’ve always been a keen scuba diver and instructor, and if I gained any more weight it would have become impossible to carry on diving” -Seth, United Kingdom
