The Realize band can help a person lose weight gradually. Like the lap band, the Realize band is performed laparoscopically, so the surgery is less invasive. An adjustable tube is surgically placed on the upper portion of your stomach. To periodically adjust the band and promote gradual weight loss, saline is delivered through a small port on your side. The Realize band causes you to feel satisfied with smaller amounts of food, decreasing your weight and improving your health and quality of life. It takes about 2 years to see the final results of weight loss with the Realize band. The Body Lift Beverly Hills approach is conducted by Dr. Afshin Farzadmehr.
Gastric Bypass makes up more than half of all bariatric surgeries performed in the U.S. This weight loss operation restricts your food intake and restricts the amount of food your body absorbs. By dividing the stomach to create a small pouch and connecting it to a loop of the small intestine, the gastric bypass significantly reduces the size of your stomach. Patients should expect rapid weight loss after gastric bypass, so it is best to be prepared for the physical and psychological changes.

In terms of expected weight loss, the gastric sleeve procedure is comparable to gastric bypass. However, with the gastric sleeve, some of the possible complications of gastric bypass may be avoided. With the aid of a laparoscope, the doctor removes a portion of the stomach so that it takes the form of a sleeve. For the patient, the operation brings satiety from hunger quicker and gradually leads to significant weight loss. The Body Lift Beverly Hills approach is conducted by Dr. Afshin Farzadmehr.
