If a person’s body is 20% or more bigger than the recommended ideal, they are called fat!
Unfortunately today, 2.1 billion or simpler to say, 30% of the world’s population are obese or overweight.
Most patients want to loose weight, because the lack of confidence, but there are more important problems. Being overweight increases the risk of infarct and causes different kinds of diseases.
Four common types of weight-loss surgery are:
Liposuction, or simply lipo, evolved from work in the late 1960s from surgeons in Europe using techniques to cut away fat, which were limited to regions without many blood vessels due to the amount of bleeding the technique caused.
In the mid-1970s two Italian gynecologists created the technique of using a blunt cannula linked to suction; they used it only to remove fat on the outer thighs.
Nowadays it is the most commonly done cosmetic surgery in United States.
There are two techniques used to remove fat:
Power-Assisted Liposuction: PAL uses an up and down, vibrating-like motion of the cannula to acquire greater fat removal. PAL requires less energy for the surgeon to operate while also resulting in greater fat removal. It is commonly used for difficult, secondary, scarred areas, and when harvesting large volumes of fat for transfers to other areas.
Ultrasound-assisted: UAL is beneficial in people with a particular skin tone, in liposuction of areas that are more difficult to remove fat, that include treatment of gynecomastia, or areas where secondary liposuction is being performed. Third-generation UAL devices address this problem by using pulsed energy delivery and a specialized probe that allows physicians to safely remove excess fat.
Roux-en-Y gastric bypass refers to a surgical procedure in which the stomach is divided into a small upper pouch and a much larger lower “remnant” pouch and then the small intestine is rearranged to connect to both
Gastric bypass is indicated for the surgical treatment of morbid obesity, a diagnosis which is made when the patient is seriously obese, has been unable to achieve satisfactory and sustained weight loss by dietary efforts, and suffers from comorbid conditions which are either life-threatening or a serious impairment to the quality of life.
Roux-en-Y gastric bypass can be accompished on two types of people:
An increasing number of these operations are now performed by limited access techniques, termed “laparoscopy”.
The Roux-en-Y laparoscopic gastric bypass, first performed in 1993, is regarded as one of the most difficult procedures to perform by limited access techniques, but use of this method has greatly popularized the operation due to associated benefits such as a shortened hospital stay, reduced discomfort, shorter recovery time, less scarring, and minimal risk of incisional hernia.
Unfortunately this surgery is not available for everyone and you should be in a good health condition, we are going some risks you may have to take. But don’t worry, you can solve many of them with the good diet and choosing the right healthcare team.
Laparoscopy was invented in 1901 by a German internist. It is a surgical method performed with some thin instruments and the assist of a video camera.
We can say the video camera in the surgeon’s eye in the surgery, the camera transmits an image of the organs inside the tummy on to a television monitor and that’s how the surgeon can directly look into the patient’s organs.
Laparoscopic surgery is a welcomed way of weight loss surgery because:
Number of the weight loss surgery and quality of these surgeries, make Iranian surgeons well-known in the world. The fact that one of the most popular weight loss surgeries (gastric placation) was originally pioneered by an Iranian surgeon is a testament to the great competence of Iranian doctors in this field.
Long lasting weight loss result such as medication assisted. Weight loss surgery procedures, Barbaric surgery, Lap Banding, Sleeve Gastronomy, Gastric and Bypass surgery. With guaranteed results, you will go through a quick procedure and see dramatic results. weight loss treatment and surgeries are generally only an option for people who are more than 30 kg until 200 kg overweight.
Most doctors will suggest a wide variety of treatments such as habits modification, dieting, and exercise. Sometimes a doctor will prescribe medications. When these are fail, surgery is an option for those who have not responded to such treatments and who are very obese.
Hospitals in Iran provide full healthcare services, offer you a very stable weight loss (with a very low return result of weight regain) and very affordable prices compared to procedures accompanied with the same standards in quality in other parts of the world.
When it comes to medical services the most common question is “How much does it cost?“
Well it depends on hospital fees, surgeon’s fees and which method are you going to use? But on average we can say a liposuction surgery costs between 300$ – 1500$, laparoscopic surgery 1500$-2000$ and Sleeve gastrectomy costs about 1500$ – 2300$.
