For those that have struggled with obesity, bariatric surgery is a lifechanging step in the direction of a healthier way of living. Our Manchester Centre for Bariatric Surgery is headed by Mr Javed Sultan, an experienced and talented consultant surgeon with expertise and interest in weight loss surgery. Mr Sultan performs the gastric sleeve and gastric bypass surgeries for Allure Weightloss patients in the region.
The Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass in Manchester
The gastric bypass is known amongst consultants as the ‘gold standard’ of bariatric surgery due to its high success rates as well as its decade-long use globally, leading to a plethora of studies that have backed this evidence-based procedure. Patients typically lose around 70% of their excess body weight with a gastric bypass (as measured over a two year period). Patients that have previously had a gastric sleeve may seek revision surgery, this is where the consultant surgeon would seek to change the sleeve into a bypass. As well as the roux-en-y gastric bypass, there is also the ‘mini gastric bypass‘ (also known as the ‘single anastomosis gastric bypass’), which involves one surgical join instead of two. The latter is a newer version of the surgery and may not be suitable for everyone. It is ultimately down to our consultants to decide what is best for you from a medical standpoint.
The Gastric Sleeve in Manchester
The gastric sleeve is one of the most popular forms of bariatric surgery in the UK. This surgery requires the removal of up to 80% of the stomach, leaving behind a sleeve-like structure. Also known as the verticle sleeve gastrectomy, the gastric sleeve requires 1 night in hospital and 4 – 6 weeks for full recovery. Gastric sleeve patients can expect an average excess weight loss of around 70% as measured over a 2 year period. The gastric sleeve, like all bariatric surgeries, should be considered as a tool for long-term success, in which various hormonal, physical, and malabsorptive will take place in order to change your relationship with food. From the impact they have on our microbiome, to the way in which the surgeries restrict our ability to eat over a certain amount, these procedures have long been go-to solutions to those that have struggled with traditional methods of weight loss alone.
