Gastric Sleeve (Sleeve gastrectomy) is a surgical weight-loss procedure in which the stomach is reduced to about 25% of its original size, by surgical removal of a large portion of the stomach along the greater curvature. The result is a sleeve or tube-like structure.
MINI GASTRIC BYPASS
Mini Gastric Bypass is a surgery that helps you lose weight by changing how your stomach and small intestine handle the food you eat. After the surgery your stomach will be smaller You will feel full with less food The food you eat will no longer go into some parts of your stomach and small intestine that absorb food.
Intragastric balloon procedure is an innovative weight loss procedure which involves placing a soft, deflated, silicone balloon placed inside the patient’s stomach through the use of an endoscope Placement of an intragastric balloon is a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure that is performed on an outpatient basis.
In summary, the gastric balloon is a temporary procedure that only works for above slightly high BMI since it doesn’t cause any hormonal or chemical changes, unlike gastric sleeve in which the stomach is reduced to 20% of its original size which reduces the physical amount of food that body can take beside partially changing the chemical nature of the body. Mini Gastric Bypass, however, dramatically changes the hormonal and chemical nature of the body because it minimizes the absorption of food and eliminate the secretion of gastric hormones.
