Weight Loss Surgeon Q & A

What is a Weight Loss Surgeon?

A weight loss surgeon, or bariatric surgeon, is a doctor who specializes in procedures that control how your stomach and/or digestive tract handle food. There are different surgery options designed to meet your individual needs and give you the best chance of success. To date, Dr. Moeinolmolki has performed over 2,000 minimally-invasive weight loss surgeries.

 

How Does Bariatric Surgery Work?

The goal behind Dr. Moeinolmolki’s work as a bariatric surgeon is to control how your body takes in and stores food so you can lose weight. Bariatric surgery involves either restricting the amount of food you can take in, limiting the absorption of foods in your digestive tract (called “malabsorption”), or both.

 

What Weight Loss Surgeries are Available?

For the best results, Dr. Moeinolmolki offers the following weight loss surgeries:

Gastric Bypass

During this procedure, Dr. Moeinolmolki ties off a small portion of your stomach and then connects your small intestine directly to this area, bypassing the bulk of your stomach. Your stomach will only hold a fraction of what it used to before this surgery.

Gastric Sleeve

During a sleeve gastrectomy, Dr. Moeinolmolki removes approximately 80% of your stomach, reducing your stomach’s volume considerably. You will get full quickly which will help you control your calorie intake significantly.

Adjustable Lap Band

Adjustable gastric banding involves a band being placed around your stomach to restrict the amount of food that can pass through your digestive tract. The gastric lap band lets Dr. Moeinolmolki adjust the band as needed, allowing more or less food through.

Gastric Balloon

A gastric balloon is a small silicon pouch that Dr. Moeinolmolki inserts into your stomach and inflates, reducing the space available for food and making you feel full. This procedure is one of the least invasive options — Dr. Moeinolmolki performs this procedure on an outpatient basis. The balloon can be removed at any time.

What are the Risks of Weight Loss Surgery?

While the bariatric surgeries that Dr. Moeinolmolki offers are all beneficial, there is still a small risk of infection or bleeding at the incision site. Dr. Moeinolmolki monitors you closely after each procedure to ensure prompt attention to any problem.

Each procedure requires your full commitment to the weight loss process, which makes it important to follow postoperative instructions to the letter.

To find out how a weight loss surgeon can help you get rid of excess pounds once and for all, call Dr. Moeinolmolki at Healthy Life Bariatrics.
