Weight Loss Surgery Options
Some procedures for extreme weight loss physically change the size of the stomach reducing the amount of food the stomach can hold and where the calories are absorbed during digestion. The chemical changes affect hormonal signals, resulting in decreased appetite, increased feelings of fullness, and increased metabolism. We perform our surgeries laparoscopically, meaning we use multiple small incisions instead of a large incision. Laparoscopic surgery results in shorter hospital stays, faster recoveries, smaller scars, and less pain than open surgical procedures.
At Central Carolina Surgery, we believe each patient should always have the choice of which procedure they ultimately undergo. We will go over all the procedures with you in detail, and help you decide which stomach bypass surgery will help you achieve your goals. All the procedures work differently, and we’ll help you determine the procedure that most fits your needs.
