Weight Loss Surgery

Posted by on Jul 24, 2013 in FAQ

If you are considering weight loss surgery, you will definitely want to choose the best surgeon in the area.  Weight loss surgery is nothing to take lightly.  It is still not recommended that you opt for weight loss surgery before you try to lose the weight on your own the old fashioned way – through diet and exercise.  After all, even after you undergo surgery to help you lose weight you will still have to exercise and eat right if you want to achieve optimal results.  Dr. Candice Silverman offers a variety of weight loss surgery options for you to consider.

Your Weight Loss Surgery Options

  • Gastric Banding – Gastric banding, also known as the lap band, is the one of the least invasive procedure we have to offer.  It involves placing a band around the stomach to help limit your food intake, which results in rapid weight loss.
  • Sleeve Gastrectomy – This procedure involves removing the majority of your stomach.  It is a permanent procedure, and is more invasive than gastric banding.  It is a highly effective procedure.
  • Intra-Gastric Balloon – This is yet another non-invasive procedure that involves a balloon to be inserted through the mouth.  It helps to decrease hunger pangs and limit food intake.  It can be reversed very easily, without surgery.
