  • Laparoscopicadjustable

    Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding

    In this procedure, a hollow band made of special material is placed around the stomach near its upper end, creating a small upper stomach pouch and a narrow passage into the larger remainder of the stomach. The band is then inflated with a salt solution. It can be tightened or loosened over time to change the size of the passage by increasing or decreasing the amount of salt solution. The entire procedure is done laparoscopically, where a laparoscope is inserted through the abdominal wall through small surgical incisions.

  • Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy

    Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy

    Vertical sleeve gastrectomy is a restrictive form of weight loss surgery in which approximately 75% of the stomach is removed leaving a cylindrical or sleeve-shaped stomach with a capacity ranging from about 60 to 150 cc, depending upon the surgeon performing the procedure. Unlike many other forms of bariatric surgery, the outlet valve and the nerves to the stomach remain intact, and while the stomach is drastically reduced in size, its function is preserved. Again, unlike other forms of surgery such as the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, the sleeve gastrectomy is not reversible.

  • Prevention of Obesity

    Whether you’re at risk of becoming obese, currently overweight or at a healthy weight, you can take steps to prevent unhealthy weight gain and related health problems. Not surprisingly, the steps to prevent weight gain are the same as the steps to lose weight: daily exercise, a healthy diet, and a long-term commitment to watch what you eat and drink.

    Exercise regularly

    According to the American College of Sports Medicine, you need to get 150 to 250 minutes of moderate-intensity activity a week to prevent weight gain. Moderately intense physical activities include fast walking and swimming.

    When you lose weight, where does the lost body fat go?

    To understand the answer, it helps to remember that fat is basically stored energy. Your body converts fat to usable energy for your muscles and other tissues through a series of complex metabolic processes. This causes your fat cells to shrink. These metabolic activities also generate heat, which helps maintain your body temperature, and waste products. These waste products, water and carbon dioxide, are excreted in your urine and sweat or exhaled from your lungs.

    Why does eating a healthy breakfast help control weight?

    Here are some of the ways that regularly eating a healthy breakfast may help you lose excess weight and maintain your weight loss:

    Reduced hunger

    Healthy choices

    More energy

  • Am I Candidate for Bariatric Surgery

    Body mass index (BMI) is the measure of body fat based on height and weight. It applies to both adult men and women. A person with BMI score of 25 or above is considered overweight; 30 or above, obese; and 40 or above, morbidly obese. Being overweight can affect your health and can lead to life-threatening conditions. If you are overweight, losing some amount of weight can help you feel good and can improve your health. Obese people are more prone to develop serious health conditions such as heart diseases, high blood pressure, diabetes, osteoarthritis, back pain, depression, and some types of cancers.

  • Plastic Surgery

    The whole aim of bariatric surgery is weight loss and usually the more the better. Inevitably in some people this will lead to a surplus of stretched skin that may lead to further problems and a desire for reduction. In many cases losing this extra skin contributes to the final psychological lift to the patients self esteem or is needed to resolve skin infection problems.

    Just like after Pregnancy, some women can regain their skin tone better than others without much residual stretched skin.

    Usually plastic surgery is delayed until 6-12 months has elapsed and until the weight loss has plateaud.

    – MaryEdward

    Prior to gastric bypass surgery on 1/6/2011, I weighed 362 pounds. I was a size 28W and dropped to a size 12 and weighed in at 179 pounds. When I was asked what my goal weight was, I simply stated, “I wanna cross my legs and get on a roller coaster!” Not only have I went to Disneyland, Six Flags, Las Vegas, & Mexico, but I’ve gone horse back riding on the beach, jet skiing in the lakes, and 3 wheeling on the sand. I partied at all of the hottest clubs and wore my first dress! My life did a 360, Thanks to Dr. Eslami and all of his supportive staff. Without them, I would not be where I am today.
