Laparoscopic Band and Sleeve Surgery Bangkok

Weight loss surgery – Lab band surgery – Gastric Bypass – Laparoscopic Sleeve surgery

Bariatric surgery is a procedure performed on obese people for the purpose of losing weight. A Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) is performed on the stomach to reduce the obese patient’s food consumption. One of the most common procedures to limit the anatomy of the digestive system is the gastric banding surgery. Results from this surgery are long term weight loss, recovery from diabetes, improvement in cardiovascular risk factors, overall health, well-being and self-esteem. The surgery is for people with severe obesity when medical treatments, change to a healthy lifestyle and regular exercise have not been effective.

The weight loss surgery are for severe obese people, if less than BMI 35, we suggest to get an consultation on Vaser Liposuction.

Gastric Band Surgery abroad

The gastric lap band surgery is performed laparoscopically under general anesthesia and takes about one to two hours. A small incision (minimally invasive surgery (MIS)) is made and an elastic silicone band is placed around the upper part of the stomach. The resulting pouch (or the “new stomach”) dramatically reduces the functional capacity of the stomach. The band is designed so that it can be inflated or deflated at any time after the operation. It can be adjusted by addition or removal of saline solution through a port which is placed under the skin and is connected to the band. The adjustment takes place in the radiology suite, normally takes only a few minutes and is painless.

The banding limits food intake by causing you to feel full faster after eating. This helps the patient continually lose weight until the desired weight is reached.

Length of hospital stay is 2 nights. Follow-up with the surgeon is done a week after the surgery to assess for immediate complications and for removal of sutures.
After Surgery
The patient is required to make changes in his / her lifestyle, the most significant one being a healthy diet. Moreover, regular excecise can speed up the weight loss and improve the overall health. Problems such as diabetes, high cholesterol, joint problems that put their life at risk will be reduced.
Diet instructions after surgery
Liquid for 7-10 days
After the first 7-10 days, start solid food 15 ml. (one tablespoonful), three times a day. Eat slowly, chew carefully.
Drink liquid as needed up to two liters daily
Multivitamin & iron daily for life
Calcium & vitamin D
In the early period after surgery, oral medication in liquid or chewable forms is preferred

Sharon from USA – Knee replacement surgery

I needed a knee replacement which I couldn’t afford in California. I was so lucky to find International Medical Health Solutions who arranged an affordable surgery for me in Thailand. They took care of me from my arrival until my departure, organised the operation in a GSI accredited hospital with a USA certified orthopaedic specialist. On top of that, I saved almost 75%. The service was excellent. Thank you!
