A gastric bypass in Phuket is a popular surgery that can help you get rid of excessive weight. The treatment focuses on reducing the size of your stomach, limiting the amount of food intake which helps the body to lose weight. For people who fail to control their weight by exercise and diet plans the surgery is a good option, and Phuket provides a good environment for your post-operative recovery.
The treatment is equally popular among men and women and it would’t be at all wrong to call it a life changing surgery. Even celebrities, including American Idol fame Randy Jackson have notably shed a considerable amount of weight with gastric bypass surgery.
The gastric bypass is often recommended by doctors for patients whose obesity is causing them other health issues, and Claire Ainsworth, a researcher from the University of Cambridge writes in her article “Full without Food” that each year, more than 200,000 patients get gastric bypass surgeries in America.

During open surgery, a large surgical cut is made to access your stomach, whereas the laparascopic technique requires five to six small incisions across the belly. Using a tiny camera which is inserted into the abdomen via the laparascope, the surgeon can see what is happening via a monitor and perform the surgery through the small incisions without having to make a large wound.
The surgery concludes within two to three hours. It is advised to spend two to four days in Hospital after the surgery. After the surgery you’ll be advised to take only liquids so that your stomach may adjust with the new arrangement. As your body will be getting less food you may feel lethargic and tired for a month or two, but this will pass. The situation will gradually get better and you’ll start feeling more energetic.
