How fat people are fat
The obesity therapy is complex. And for very fat people (see the photo above), treatment should include counseling of a psychologist, nutritionist, exercise complex, special diet, medication (for example, hormone replacement) and surgical treatment, as well as concomitant diseases (diabetes, etc.).
Among surgical operations conducted with obesity, there are:
- Gastric banding. It is a laparoscopic (that is, without incisions) intervention, during which a special ring is placed on the stomach, which gives it the appearance of an hourglass. The upper part of the stomach thus has a volume of only fifteen milliliters, and to fill it (that is, saturation), only a tablespoon of food is sufficient. Therefore, such an operation simply excludes overeating. The indication for such intervention is the weight of more than 180 kg.
- Sleeve gastroplasty. A specific operation that is used to narrow the stomach (in order to limit the excess intake of food). When carrying out such a surgical intervention, a narrow passage is formed from the stomach in order to obstruct the passage of solid food.
- Gastric bypass. It is appointed if necessary to get rid of ninety percent of excess weight. This intervention combines a decrease in the volume of the stomach and malabsorption, that is, insufficient absorption of food. Such intervention presupposes the formation of a so-called small stomach by suppressing the organ and attaching to it a loop of the small intestine. As a result, food is much faster than the gastrointestinal tract. A small stomach with a volume of up to sixty grams severely limits the amount of food taken, and with bile, a food lump occurs only after passing through a small intestine 1.5 meters in length.
In addition to the above methods, liposuction is used, and later excision of "extra" stretched skin.
