Bariatric Procedures in Darien, Norwalk & Stamford CT
This procedure removes a portion of the stomach. This changes how fast you feel full after eating a certain amount of food. The stomach’s size is decreased to roughly the size of a banana, allowing for less food to be consumed to feel full. It also allows for normal digestion and absorption of food, unlike other bariatric procedures.
Gastric Bypass Surgery is a popular surgery that has been a successful weight loss method for individuals who have undergone it. This procedure involves partially bypassing the small intestine and decreasing the size of the stomach. People lose weight because not only do they eat less and feel full faster, but they also do not absorb food fully, unlike gastric sleeve surgery. Nevertheless, this surgery only works well when used in conjunction with healthy lifestyle changes like diet and exercise. Please consult with a professional to determine if gastric bypass surgery is right for you!
Gastric band procedures involve placing an adjustable silicone band around the upper portion of the stomach. This causes a decrease in overall hunger and restricts how much food the stomach can normally feed itself. Weight loss is possible with this procedure combined with changes in diet, exercise, and more. If you undergo gastric band surgery, it is essential to stay in touch with a professional to make adjustments as necessary.

The Gastric Balloon is a soft, expandable device temporarily inserted into the stomach to promote weight loss. Despite not being able to create weight loss automatically, the procedure’s purpose is to encourage weight loss by reducing hunger, breaking habits, and increasing willpower. It’s most effective for those in need of a jump-start to lose weight or struggling to control their appetites. After six months, the gastric balloon is removed, giving you ample time to adjust to your new routine!
