Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy or gastric sleeve is a relatively new weight loss procedure that reduces the size of the stomach from a sac to a narrow tube. In one of these operations, the vertical banded gastroplasty also called as ‘Obesity Surgery’ was abandoned due to poor long-term outcomes.
Metabolic bypass surgery is a very effective weight loss surgery procedure. This procedure combines two weight loss mechanisms.
The metabolic bypass has been around for more than 20 years and is considered the ‘Gold Standard’ of weight loss surgery. It’s considered the ‘Gold Standard’ because it’s the most researched of all procedures, it has excellent results and a low-risk profile.
