How does the treatment work?
Bariatric Surgery in Abu Dhabi works by reducing the capacity of the stomach and small intestine using several surgical procedures. Patients experience a loss of 40 to 70 percent of their extra weight as a consequence of limiting the intake of food, feeling full more quickly, and having fewer calories digested by the intestines.
Before beginning the procedure, the surgeon and the patient have a comprehensive first consultation. After analyzing the patient’s medical history to make sure the tests are appropriate for the therapy, the surgeon may next recommend tests like ultrasound, ECG, x-ray, blood tests, etc. Following a decision, the patient is given a set of instructions on how to be ready for the procedure. These contain guidelines for what to do and what to avoid doing before the procedure. For instance, before surgery, the patient is recommended to
- Stop using any blood-thinning drugs and herbal supplements.
- Reduce your usage of salt and caffeine as well.
- Alcohol and smoking should not be consumed before the surgery.
These surgeries are collectively known as Bariatric surgery
Gastric balloon placement
An intragastric balloon implantation technique helps a person lose weight by inserting a silicon balloon full of saline into their stomach. This reduces the food intake and makes the person feel satisfied more quickly, both of which aid in weight loss.
The stomach is divided into a tiny pocket that links to the intestinal tract roughly in the center. A smaller stomach requires less food to fill it, and the person feels full more quickly. It assists the individual in losing excessive pounds and lowers their chance of serious, maybe fatal, weight-related medical issues.
Laparoscopic gastric banding is a weight-loss procedure. The person’s upper stomach is banded by the surgery to form a little pouch that can contain food. By making the patient feel full after consuming little amounts of food, the band restricts the quantity of food the person can eat.
A more recent less invasive weight-loss surgical procedure called laparoscopic gastric plication decreases the stomach’s volume to about 3 oz. Being a restricting weight-loss procedure, it limits how much food the stomach can contain.
Through this procedure, the stomach is made into a little tube that is incapable of physically holding a considerable amount of food. Entering food is swiftly emptied from the tummy by removing one of its sides to do. The stomach’s natural valves are also intact, allowing it to continue operating normally.
The cost of the surgical procedures ranges from AED 27,000 to AED 37,000. It depends on how complex the procedure is, the technique adopted by the surgeon, expected results, and the current condition of the patient. The surgeon’s expertise, experience, and clinical level also affect the overall expense of the treatment. The final cost is determined by the surgeon after considering all the factors defining the cost.
