Bariatric Procedures

healthcare Bariatric surgery (also known as weight loss surgery) is a series of procedures designed to encourage rapid weight loss in patients that are obese. Depending on the procedure, weight loss is achieved by reducing the size of the stomach or by resecting and re-routing the small intestines to a small stomach pouch. The amount of excess weight lost ranges from 25%-80% of body weight (one year after surgery), and will depend upon the patient following the doctor’s indications.

Popular bariatric procedures include:

  • Biliopancreatic Diversion
  • Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass
  • Sleeve Gastrectomy
  • Adjustable Gastric Banding

Bariatric procedures usually last anywhere from one to three hours and in most cases will require between one and two nights in the hospital or clinic (the adjustable gastric banding may be an outpatient procedure).

If you are coming to Miami for a weight loss procedure, you will likely need to spend between five to seven days in the area. Itineraries will vary from clinic to clinic, but in general you will start with your preoperative exams on the day after your arrival, have surgery on the following day, then get discharged from the clinic a day or two later depending on your procedure.

You will then require a few days to recuperate in your hotel before traveling home. For specific treatment information, please contact one of the bariatric specialists in this guide.
