Surgical Weight Loss Procedures

A Weight Loss Procedure Toronto Residents Praise

If you are not pleased with your weight, it can be extremely difficult to have the confidence needed to enjoy life to its fullest. If diet and exercise have not helped you obtain the weight you desire, you may benefit from a weight loss procedure in Toronto. At Centric Health Surgical Centre Toronto we provide gastric band, gastric sleeve and gastric balloon procedures that can help you lose weight and feel great again.

Gastric Band – Lap Band

A gastric band, often called a lap-band, is an inflatable device that it placed around the upper portion of the stomach. By slightly constricting the stomach, this device makes it uncomfortable to overeat as the outlet to the stomach is constricted. By decreasing the amount you eat, a gastric band combats obesity and is a weight loss procedure that prevents weight gain. Dedication to consistent exercise can help you finally lose the weight you despise. The lap band surgery is non invasive and is adjustable to increase or decrease the amount of constriction on the stomach.

Gastric Sleeve – Sleeve Gastrectomy

The vertical sleeve gastrectomy is a restrictive form of weight loss surgery in which approximately 85% of the stomach is removed leaving a cylindrical or sleeve shaped stomach with smaller capacity for food. Unlike many other forms of bariatric surgery, the outlet valve and the nerves to the stomach remain intact and, while the stomach is drastically reduced in size, and its function is preserved. Unlike other forms of bariatric surgery, the Sleeve gastrectomy is not reversible or adjustable.

Gastric Balloon

The Gastric Balloon is an inflatable balloon that is temporarily placed in the stomach to provide a feeling of fullness after eating less food than what you are used to. The feeling of fullness is maintained between meals because food is emptied from the upper stomach at a delayed rate. Because you won’t be feeling hungry, it will be much easier to stick with a supervised program and lifestyle changes so you can achieve your desired weight loss results. The Gastric Balloon can stay in the stomach for up to six months.
