Different Types of Bariatric Surgery
Gastric Sleeve vs Gastric Bypass - Gastric sleeve surgery is a restrictive and permanent weight loss surgery that reduces stomach capacity and food intak. Gastric bypass surgery uses two surgical techniques including restriction and malabsorption to achieve weight loss. Bariatric surgery statistics show that gastric sleeve and gastric bypass are being chosen more often for treating long-term weight loss than all other weight loss sugeries.
Gastric Sleeve vs Lap Band - Gastric sleeve and gastric lap band are both classified as restrictive surgical procedures that help patients consume less food. The adjustable gastric lap band is the safest bariatric surgery currently available, but is loosing popularity due to higher rates of minor complications (band erosion and band slippage). As a result, gastric sleeve is becoming a more commonly performed procedure among bariatric patients.
Lap Band vs Gastric Bypass - Gastric bypass is a more invasive surgery that reroutes the digestive tract. In contrast, lap band surgery doesn't surgically alter the digestive system, but promotes weight loss by wrapping an inflatable band around the top portion of the stomach. Although the adjustable gastric band is safer, gastric bypass is still considered the "gold standard" and remains the most popular type of bariatric surgery worldwide.
Duodenal Switch vs Gastric Bypass - Both the duodenal switch and gastric bypass promotes weight loss through restriction (reduction in the amount of food you can eat) and malabsorption (reduction in the amount of calories that get absorbed). Unlike the gastric bypass that can be reversed for medical problems only, the duodenal switch is irreversible. Each procedure achieves rapid weight loss in short periods of time, but the duodenal switch has higher surgical risks.
