Procedure

Gastric Sleeve

Procedure

The sleeve gastrectomy is a weight loss restrictive operation where 80% of the stomach is removed leaving it in a cylindrical shape, hence the name “sleeve”. This new stomach has a capacity of about 150 cc, (5 oz.) Unlike many other forms of bariatric surgery, the outlet valve of the stomach and nerves remain intact, while the stomach is drastically reduced in size maintaining its function.

Because the new stomach continues to function normally there are fewer restrictions on the types of foods people can eat after the operation compared to other types of procedures. The main difference is the volume of the portions.

How does it work?

With a smaller stomach your consumption capacity is reduced and you feel full quickly.

Unlike the Gastric Bypass procedure, the inactive portion of the stomach (80%) is removed from your body.

This causes a reduction in the grhelina hormone benefiting aspects of satiety, hunger, and blood sugar control.

Losing weight without being hungry.
