Obesity is normally attributed to excessive consumption of fats even though it might be inherited.
Dr. Ahmed Bendari Farag, a general surgeon and specialist in body contouring at Baho International Hospital has said that people often consume excessive diet because of distended stomach.
He explained that some of solutions include physical exercises, reduced food quantities or consult medical doctors to place an intragastric balloon into the stomach or reduce it by gastric bypass.
“When someone seeking our advice is overweight or obese, we advise him or her to opt for gastric ballon to help them limit the quantity of dietary intake,” he said.
“This simple process can be done in ten minutes and recommend dietary intake. If our tips are respected, it positively impacts patients of whom 80 % using the technique lose weight in four or five months,” added Dr. Farag.
He explained that the technique doesn’t have side effects expect vomiting or feeling unwell in the first three days. During this time, the patient is recommended to drink enough water or reduce sugar intake.
“If the patient failed to comply with these guidelines, we use the second technique by conducting Laparoscopic surgery to reduce the stomach,” revealed Dr. Farag.
“A patient undergoing such surgery can return home the same day or resume work in the next two days. It doesn’t take long,” he said.
Dr. Farag underscored that such technique is also useful for patient suffering from Diabetes.
