Although the best way to lose weight is to have a proper diet and exercise, sometimes the obesity problem is very serious, which is not easily resolvable, and other methods, such as surgery can be considered. Gastric plication is a relatively new, minimally invasive method for treating patients with obesity. It reduces the size of the stomach capacity to approximately three ounces. Follow the good results and confirmation of reliable centers such as Cleavland, it was introduced as a bariatric surgery for complicated obese patients among patients and surgeons. In this surgery, there is no implanted device unlike gastric band, no removal or bypassing so this surgery is less invasive and also reversible. It is cheaper than other bariatric surgeries.
It is necessary for patient to feel free to ask all kinds of questions about the surgery process and the results. They should tell the doctor their medical history and allergies, also medicines and supplements intake. The surgeon may ask to stop some medicines such as blood thinning and painkillers like ibuprofen some weeks prior to the surgery. They should do some lab tests and physical exams. If patient is a smoker, it is essential to stop it 4 to 6 weeks prior to the surgery and it is recommended to start a diet to reduce 5 to 10% of excess weight before surgery, because it helps to lose weight faster after surgery.
