Weight Loss Surgery

Weight Loss Surgery is by far the most effective and most lasting treatment for obesity. The two most commonly performed weight loss surgeries are gastric sleeve surgery and gastric bypass surgery.

Weight loss surgery works by changing the biology that regulates bodyweight. In effect, weight loss surgery changes the bodyweight “set-point” to a new, lower, healthier weight.

This biology change is what makes weight loss surgery so compelling. It is the reason why patients can lose a large amount of weight, and maintain the weight loss over time.*

Weight loss surgery, however, is not a cure for obesity. Weight loss surgery does not change a person’s predisposition to gain weight, and therefore bad habits after surgery can limit weight loss, and cause long-term weight regain.

The keys to success after weight loss surgery are 1) getting a quality operation (choice of surgeon important), 2) and establishing and maintaining good eating/exercise habits after surgery (patient care – education, follow-up, support important).

Our focus on high-quality weight loss surgery and high-quality patient care has enables us to achieve a record of excellent, industry-leading patient outcomes.*

gastric sleeve Orange County weight loss surgery patient - Yael

Sleeve Gastrectomy

Sleeve gastrectomy (also known as gastric sleeve, vertical sleeve gastrectomy, vsg) involves surgically decreasing the size of the stomach from approximately 30-40 ounces in volume, to approximately 3-4 ounces in volume.

The gastric sleeve operation is the most popular weight loss surgery in the United States, accounting for 70-75% of all first-time weight loss operations.

Reasons for the popularity of the gastric sleeve operation include: 1) gastric sleeve is effective for weight loss, 2) gastric sleeve improves or resolves weight-related medical problems, and 3) gastric sleeve is less invasive and lower risk than gastric bypass surgery.

Sleeve gastrectomy can be great operation for weight loss, but it is important to understand that quality of surgery and quality of patient care vary significantly between different surgeons and programs.

Choice of surgeon and program is important. Getting a high-quality operation and high-quality patient care will maximize your chances to achieve an excellent weight loss outcome and avoid complications.*

Gastric Bypass

Gastric bypass surgery (i.e. Roux-en-y gastric bypass) involves surgically making a very small stomach pouch, and attaching this small stomach pouch to the intestine.

Gastric bypass is the 2nd most popular weight loss surgery in the United States, accounting for 20-25% of all first-time weight loss operations.

Gastric bypass surgery, like sleeve gastrectomy surgery, is highly effective for weight loss, and for the improvement or resolution of weight-related medical issues.

Gastric bypass surgery is particularly effective for the treatment of acid reflux and diabetes. Gastric bypass is often favored over sleeve gastrectomy for patients with diabetes or severe acid reflux.

Gastric bypass surgery can be a great tool for weight loss, but it is important to understand that quality of surgery and quality of patient care vary significantly between different surgeons and programs.

Choice of surgeon and program is important. Getting a high-quality operation and high-quality patient care will maximize your chances to achieve an excellent weight loss outcome and avoid complications.*

The cost? Losing weight and gaining health is more attainable than you think.
