When exercise and dieting doesn’t work, it may be time to consider bariatric surgery. According to the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, if you have a Body Mass Index over 40 or are more than 100 lbs overweight – or if your BMI exceeds 35 and you have other obesity-related issues such as Type II Diabetes, you may be a good candidate for bariatric surgery.
Weight loss is achieved through surgery by reducing the size of the stomach with a gastric band, by removing a portion of the stomach, or by resecting and re-routing the small intestine to a small stomach pouch. Long-term studies show Bariatric Surgery can cause significant long-term weight loss, recovery from diabetes, it can improve cardiovascular risk factors, and prolong your life.
For patients not to keen on surgery, our offices offers a noninvasive Gastric balloon options.
Obalon and Orbera: A balloon is inserted orally into the stomach of the patient and left there for a period of months. During this period the patient is encouraged to engage in healthy food and exercise habits, guided by IBI Healthcare Institute weight loss center. The balloon causes patients to feel full faster and to remain that way, cutting down on hunger and cravings in a safe manner and helping them lose weight.
A hernia, which is when an organ or other tissue squeezes through a weak spot in a muscle or connective tissue, can cause discomfort, severe pain and other serious complications if left untreated. If a hernia is small, surgery may not be necessary, but if its unable to be pushed back, correcting the hernia is crucial to avoid complications such as strangulation, which is when the intestines gets trapped by a hernia and blood supply is cut off, which can be a very serious condition. We offer minimally invasive hernia repair surgery for patients.
The gallbladder helps your body break down fat from the food in your intestines. It delivers bile to the small intestines to help do this. Patients who suffer from gallstones or gallbladder pain often require surgery. If left untreated, gallstones can cause more serious conditions such as the backup of bile, which can cause nausea, fever, pain, and vomiting. Gallstones can be removed during surgery, but if the stones are a reoccurring problem or are very large, the gallbladder can be removed.
Acid reflux and heartburn can be annoying, but when it’s constant, it can be debilitating and dangerous. Acid reflux is when a build-up of stomach acid flows back into the esophagus. This can cause heartburn and other issues. If it’s chronic, it’s called GERD or gastroesophageal reflux disease. GERD can cause other serious complications if left untreated. IBI Healthcare Institute offers reflux surgery to repair or replace the valve at the bottom of the esophagus when medicines don’t work.
What is GER (Acid Reflux)?
Gastroesophageal reflux (GER) happens when your stomach contents come back up into your esophagus. Stomach acid that touches the lining of your esophagus can cause heartburn, also called acid indigestion.
Does GER have another name?
Doctors also refer to GER as
- acid indigestion
- acid reflux
- acid regurgitation
Tubal Reversal Center
If you regret undergoing tubal ligations and find yourself wanting to have another baby, tubal reversal may be a good option for you. IBI Healthcare Institute offers tubal ligation reversal for women who have undergone tubal sterilization, which offers them the potential to have children again. During the surgery, a patient’s fallopian tubes will be restored to their natural function. About 80 percent of women who undergo a tubal reversal become fertile again. This is an outpatient procedure and is done laparoscopically, so it’s less invasive.

Outpatient surgery is a great option available for a multitude of procedures we offer. Having a same-day surgery saves you money and allows you to recover comfortably at home. Depending on what type of procedure you have, the amount of time spent at our facility could be anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours. We know time is of the utmost importance and many of our patients prefer to return to their busy schedules as quickly and safely as possible following a procedure. Eliminating an extended wait time, prolonged procedure, and long-lasting recovery at the hospital saves our patients money and time, while still affording them exceptional services and care.
Becoming a mom is a joyous event, but pregnancy and motherhood can be exhausting and rough on your physical body. Following pregnancy, sometimes the stress on your body can make it impossible to revert to your pre-pregnancy shape – no matter the amount of dieting and exercise you perform. Whether you’re dealing with stretchmarks, sagging or loose skin in the stomach area, a different breast size or shape following breastfeeding or stubborn fat in the midsection or upper thighs, we can help. Some common procedures in our mommy makeovers include a tummy tuck, liposuction, and breast lift or augmentation. Because every woman is different, our mommy makeovers are tailored for each individual woman based on her needs.
As we age, our skin naturally begins to sag, we get more wrinkles and our skin loses that youthful blush. The reason why is because aging skin loses collagen and our face loses muscles, which can cause our skin to sag or become droopy. A facelift can make you appear younger, but sometimes it’s not necessary to go under the knife. A Vampire Facelift offers similar results without an invasive surgery. Using your own stem cells, we can shape your face, eliminate wrinkles, and help your body to grow new, younger tissue that will restore your youthful glow.
With cutting edge technology and medicine, it’s no longer necessary to accept aging skin. You can counteract effects such as wrinkles and sagging skin on the face and neck. A facelift performed by a skilled surgeon can help to reduce wrinkles, smooth sagging skin, and give you a more youthful, natural appearance.
If you’re not quite ready for a facelift, but you’re interested in a smoother complexion, Botox Cosmetic injections are a safe, easy and affordable option. Botox can help rid you of crow’s feet and other facial lines such as frown lines and forehead lines. It’s a simple outpatient procedure that is safe and effective. Botox temporarily relaxes the muscles in your face, which enables it to become smoother.
Women choose to undergo breast augmentation for a multitude of reasons. Some want to enlarge their breasts, others want to change the shape of their breasts following breastfeeding, while other women want to enhance their breasts following weight loss. We understand that choosing breast augmentation is a personal decision and we take the upmost time and care to discuss all the options our patients have.
Breast implants can help shape the breasts, make them more symmetrical, and enlarge them. The best candidate for a breast augmentation procedure is someone who is healthy and isn’t pregnant or breast feeding. It’s also important the breasts be fully developed. Dr. Angelina will meet with you prior to surgery to discuss various options, explain the procedure, and discuss your medical history. During the consultation, you will also have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the procedure.
Tummy tuck/ Abdominoplasty
Many men and women who have lost a lot of weight find their stomach muscles and skin are unable to return to their previous state. A tummy tuck is an effective way to tighten those muscles back up and remove excess skin and fat. A good candidate for abdominoplasty is someone who is healthy and in shape, but has stubborn loose skin and excess stomach fat following a pregnancy or weight loss. A tummy tuck can also remove some, if not all, of the stretchmarks on the lower abdomen. Most patients who undergo this procedure report improved self-esteem as a result of the surgery.
Vein and Vascular Surgery
People who suffer from varicose veins often are self-conscious about wearing shorts or a bathing suit. While varicose veins are a fairly common condition, they can cause more serious complications if not corrected, such as blood clots or skin ulcers. We offer vein and vascular surgery that’s minimally invasive and can help eliminate those painful, bluish veins.
Access Center Dermabrasion
Dermabrasion is a great option for people who suffer from acne scars, have been scarred by an accident or have had previous surgery and want to minimize the scar. It can also improve facial wrinkles like smile lines. Dermabrasion refinishes the top layer of skin, which is done by controlled surgical scraping. The procedure can even out the skin and remove any irregularities, such as pre-cancerous growths or sharp edges, leaving the skin feeling soft and smooth.
