Gastric Sleeve

Gastric sleeve surgery, also known as sleeve gastrectomy, is a weight loss surgery that involves reducing the size of the stomach by removing a large portion of it. The procedure is performed laparoscopically, which means it is performed using small incisions and specialized instruments, including a laparoscope (a thin, lighted tube with a camera).Gastric sleeve operation might be the most common and popular one when it comes to weight loss (obesity, bariatric) surgeries. 80% percent of the stomach is removed so that the patient eats less and loses weight ideally in one year. The results are proved, and the procedure is safe.


1.How much weight can I expect to lose?

The amount of weight that can be lost after gastric sleeve surgery will vary depending on a number of factors, including the individual's starting weight, diet, and exercise habits. On average, people can expect to lose about 60% of their excess body weight within the first year after the surgery.


2.Will I need to take vitamins after the surgery?

After gastric sleeve surgery, it is important to take vitamins and minerals to ensure that your body is getting the nutrients it needs. Your surgeon or a registered dietitian will provide you with a list of recommended supplements and may suggest that you take a multivitamin and mineral supplement daily.


3.Can I eat normal foods after the surgery?

After gastric sleeve surgery, you will need to follow a specific diet to ensure proper healing and maximize weight loss. The diet will typically start with a liquid phase and then progress to pureed and soft foods before transitioning to solid foods. It is important to follow your surgeon's instructions and listen to your body's hunger and fullness cues to ensure that you are eating enough to support your nutritional needs.


4. Why do they take 80% of the stomach?

During gastric sleeve surgery, also known as sleeve gastrectomy, the surgeon removes about 80% of the stomach. This is done to reduce the size of the stomach and create a small, tube-shaped stomach that holds about one cup of food.

The smaller stomach size limits the amount of food that can be eaten at one time, which can help people lose weight by reducing their appetite and calorie intake. In addition, the procedure can also affect the production of hunger-regulating hormones, which can further help with weight loss.
