Seattle, Washington is home to well over 608,000 people and the world famous Space Needle. Sitting atop the Space Needle is the SkyCity Restaurant. The SkyCity Restaurant is just one of many places to please the palate in this lovely city. As a result of all the places to eat, there is a problem with obesity. If you are one of the many people battling with this, you may consider your many options with bariatric surgery Seattle. One of the most popular types of these procedures is gastric bypass. However, there are several different types that can meet your weight loss surgery needs.
Bariatric surgery encompasses many procedures. Some of those procedures include:
Ø Vertical banded gastroplasty – A procedure where a section of the stomach is stapled, permanently, so as to create a smaller stomach. A smaller stomach means the person will feel fuller sooner and, thus, eat less.
Ø Adjustable gastric band – Another procedure to create a smaller stomach, but instead of stapling, a plastic band is placed around a part of the stomach. This is not permanent and can be removed or adjusted at any time.
Ø Gastric Bypass surgery – Gastric bypass Seattle experts assure is a safe yet complicated procedure that involves sectioning off the stomach into a small portion and a large, remnant portion and connecting them both with the small intestine.
Surprisingly enough, gastric bypass is the most sought after procedure in the bariatric surgery family. The reason that this is such a surprise is because of the work involved with the procedure and how strict the diet is afterward. There is also the fact that this type of procedure has a tremendous effect on the mental state of the patient who receives it. There are many patients who suffer from things like depression after having this procedure done because they have to rethink the way they use food in their daily lives. Many obese people use food to compensate for an area of their wellbeing, so by taking that away, it can leave one depressed and very emotional. For this very reason, no matter which procedure is scheduled, the patient will have to undergo psychiatric evaluation and a consultation prior to having the procedure done.
Getting any type of bariatric surgery done is a major step towards improving your life. It is not a decision that should be made lightly or taken less than seriously. Because of the complications that can arise from procedures like gastric bypass, it is important to make sure that there really is no other way that you can lose the weight before having the procedure done. If you can lose weight with diet and exercise, then you should definitely choose that method instead of having serious surgery.
