Are you looking for the cheapest bariatric surgery in Northern Virginia? Dr. Barry proudly offers the cheapest gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy. These are two of the most common bariatric procedures. Here’s what you need to know.

Sleeve Gastrectomy

Sleeve gastrectomy, or vertical sleeve gastrectomy, is a laparoscopic weight loss procedure. During sleeve gastrectomy, the surgeon removes 80% of the stomach, leaving a small tube-like stomach.

Limiting the size of the stomach restricts the amount of food you consume, and consequently, the calories you absorb. It also reduces the hunger hormone, which lowers appetite.

Gastric Bypass

Gastric bypass changes how the stomach and small intestine handle the food you eat. The procedure has two steps. First, the surgeon makes our stomach smaller. He divides the stomach into two portions. The upper stomach is where the food you eat will go. This pouch is about the size of a walnut and only holds about 1 oz of food. This restricts how much you eat, contributing to weight loss success.

The second step is the bypass. The surgeon connects a portion of the small intestine to a small hole in the new stomach pouch. Now, the food you eat will travel from the pouch into the small intestine, but further down than it would normally go. This effectively bypasses part of the small intestine, further reducing the calories your body absorbs.

Gastric bypass can be done laparoscopically as well.
