Surgical Weight Loss Solutions

Weight loss surgeries, also known as bariatric surgeries, can save lives and reverse the negative effects of obesity. Patients in need of weight loss surgery have several options. No matter the procedure, the goal of weight loss surgery is to reduce the amount of food a patient’s stomach can hold and restrict the amount of nutrients the body absorbs. 

This helps the patient to feel satisfied after eating significantly smaller amounts of food than they did before surgery. At NOVA Bariatrics and Minimally Invasive Surgery, we assist patients in their fight against obesity by performing:

  • Gastric Sleeve
  • Gastric Bypass
  • Duodenal Switch

Non Surgical Weight Loss Solutions

Do you need help losing weight and regaining your confidence and wellness? Are you afraid of potential side effects or costs of invasive surgery? Then, one of our non surgical weight loss procedures may be the choice for you! Non surgical weight loss is often called medical weight loss in Dallas and throughout the U.S.

We use the following non-surgical procedures to help obese patients who have unsuccessfully attempted to lose weight with diet and exercise alone:

  • Obalon Balloon
  • Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty

Minimally Invasive Surgery Solutions

Dr. Mustafa Alibhai specializes in performing laparoscopy and robotic surgeries that only require tiny incisions on the patient’s abdomen. Instead of traditionally performing open surgery with larger incisions, the doctor is able to carry out procedures with greater accuracy by using robotic technology. This helps patients to heal faster and recover with less pain. At NOVA Bariatrics, we use minimally invasive techniques to treat these issues:

  • Hernia (Hiatal, Abdominal Wall)
  • Acid Reflux
  • Gallbladder

No one becomes obese over night. Each of us gains pounds one at a time, and we lose them the same way. Dr. Alibhai understands that your weight loss journey is one that is best carried out with a team to keep you motivated as you work towards hitting your goals. As one of the best doctors for surgical and medical weight loss in Dallas, he personally invests in each of his patient’s successes and avails himself and his staff as partners on your weight loss journey.
