Stomach Reduction

Stomach reduction surgery in Czech Republic

Stomach reduction is a way for obese people to permanently fulfill their desire to lose weight. For most of those affected, morbid obesity is a psychological as well as a physical problem due to years of excessive calorie intake. A gastrectomy reduces the volume of the stomach. A feeling of satiety occurs sooner. Patients consume fewer calories. Diabetes, diseases of the cardiovascular system, high blood pressure, bone problems, gout and depression are often stressful consequences of being overweight.

What is a gastric plication?

The operation consists in reducing the volume of the stomach by immersing (folding) its wall into the interior of the stomach. The new shape of the stomach is secured using non-absorbable sutures or special small clamps. The operation not only reduces the volume of the stomach, but also limits the possibility of its expansion. This probably also leads to a reduced production of digestive hormones, which are responsible for the feeling of hunger. The advantage of this operation is that it does not require the introduction (implantation) of any foreign material into the body in the long term, and it does not require the irreversible removal of a large portion of the otherwise healthy stomach, as is the case with a similar operation to treat obesity -– the sleeve gastrectomy) – is the case. After the treatment, the entire stomach is preserved, and this brings with it another advantage of this operation, namely the possibility of restoring it to its original state (reversibility). Stomach plication is usually recommended for people who have repeatedly failed conservative treatment. Furthermore, this method is intended for people with a BMI between 35 and 40 who suffer from a disease related to obesity, such as: E.g. diabetes, high blood pressure, etc. In individual cases, this operation can be carried out for diabetics with a BMI of 30 or more.

Blocking the gastric band

With a gastrectomy the stomach is narrowed. As a result, food intake and digestion are slowed down. A feeling of satiety occurs more quickly and therefore fewer calories are consumed.

Stomach reduction is a permanent solution for your health. An important factor for the positive effect of stomach reduction is the sensible change in the patient’s diet. Combined with regular exercise, stomach reduction surgery can help you achieve a healthy weight in the long term.

Before inserting the gastric band, existing diseases of the esophagus, stomach, organs, abdominal cavity, bulimia, alcoholism and severe psychoses should be ruled out. Drug addicts and pregnant women are not allowed to have a gastric band inserted.

The implantation of a gastric band takes place after the consultation and internal examinations in the Czech Republic under general anesthesia and takes about two hours. A silicone band with the function of a cuff is inserted into the upper part of the stomach using an optical surgical instrument.

This band contracts the stomach in such a way that the forestomach, which first absorbs the food, now only has a volume of around 100 to 150 ml. When eating solid food, the upper stomach can soon fill up. A quick feeling of satiety may occur.

There is a sufficiently large opening between the forestomach and stomach through which food can pass. Since each patient can lose weight quickly or react to the gastric band individually, it is possible to optimally adjust the gastric band on an outpatient basis.

If the band is implanted, you can feel full for several hours after eating small amounts of food and calories. Overall, only a much smaller total amount of food can be consumed throughout the day. The way for weight loss is paved.

Experience has shown that patients can stand up with support and drink small amounts of tea just a few hours after the operation. A final examination takes place on the second day in the clinic. In the first week after the operation, the patient is only allowed to consume liquid food. Most patients can go about their daily routine again just two weeks after gastric band surgery. Typically, you will lose up to 2 kg per month in the first two years after the procedure.

The description of the operation is generally phrased and can’t replace the personal consultation with the cosmetic surgeon. Unfortunately, we are not allowed to show before/after pictures, due to the fact that this is forbidden by the Law on Advertising in the Health Care System.
