Dr. Sergio del Hoyo. Embarking on a weight loss journey through surgical intervention is both a significant and life-altering decision. Weight loss surgery not only mitigates the health complications related to obesity but also operates through two primary mechanisms:
- Restriction - By surgically reducing the stomach's capacity, the amount of food intake is naturally limited, subsequently curbing the calorie consumption.
- Malabsorption - Certain procedures modify or bypass a segment of the small intestine, which decreases calorie and nutrient absorption.
Given an individual's medical background, a surgeon can advise the most appropriate procedure. Typically, the surgery entails about five days, and due to its laparoscopic approach, the surgical incisions remain minimal. Such minimally invasive techniques can undoubtedly propel one towards a healthier life trajectory.
