The South Coast Specialty Surgery Center offers numerous weight loss procedures, including gastric sleeve and Lap-Band®. Other approaches include:
- Orbera is a non-surgical weight loss solution that involves placing a soft, silicone balloon in the stomach, which can help patients feel full faster and eat less. It has been shown to be effective in helping people achieve their weight loss goals and improve their overall health.
- Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty (ESG) is a non-surgical weight loss procedure that uses an endoscope to reduce the size of the stomach, resulting in a feeling of fullness after consuming smaller portions of food. ESG is minimally invasive, has a short recovery time, and has been shown to be effective in helping patients achieve significant weight loss and improvements in their health.
- Revisional bariatric surgery is a weight loss surgery that is performed to modify or repair a previous bariatric procedure that may not have produced the desired weight loss or may have caused complications. This type of surgery can help patients achieve their weight loss goals and improve their overall health, and may include procedures such as gastric bypass revision or conversion to a different type of weight loss surgery. With advancements in surgical techniques, revisional bariatric surgery has become a safe and effective option for patients seeking further weight loss.
Patients with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher who also suffer from weight-related issues and patients with a BMI of 40 or higher who don’t have any weight-related health issues may qualify for weight loss surgery. After surgery, the team at South Coast Specialty Surgery Center works with patients to ensure they eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly. Follow-up care is crucial to keeping the weight off.
