Reduces feelings of hunger and the capacity to eat by shrinking your stomach.
We offer this procedure for partial stomach removal to help weight loss if you’re severely overweight and diet and exercise haven’t worked.
During gastric sleeve surgery, three-quarters of the stomach is removed and the remaining pouch is shaped into a sleeve-like shape. Due to the extent of surgical invasion, the gastric sleeve cannot be reversed. The volume of the stomach pouch is reduced permanently therefore the production of hunger hormone decreases accordingly. This ensures the consumption of small portions of food for the rest of one’s life, which means that weight loss will be reliable and permanent just as the surgery.
Gastric sleeve surgery, a laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, is a surgical procedure during which a part of the stomach is removed leaving the remaining part to function as a new smaller stomach. The stomach is an organ that functions as a temporary food reservoir and it also produces hormones, such as gastrin and ghrelin. Ghrelin is associated with the feeling of hunger. Therefore, the removal of a large portion of the pouch can alter the hunger hormone production.
After a gastric sleeve procedure, a patient’s food intake is decreased and they feel full faster. It is bariatric surgery, which helps patients to lose as much as 50 to 70 percent of their excess weight.
Gastric sleeve surgery is performed under general anesthesia and takes up to a maximum of two hours to complete. Just a few small incisions are made in the stomach area so that a laparoscope and other surgical instruments used to perform a gastrectomy can be inserted in the abdomen.
Approximately 75 percent of a stomach is removed and the rest of the pouch is sealed using medical staples. In order to prevent any leakage after a patient starts consuming food, the staples are then manually stitched over and a fluid test is done while the patient is still on the operating table. The new stomach acquires a shape somewhat similar to a sleeve.
The stomach retains all of its previous functions, therefore, food can still be digested properly. The biggest change is a significantly decreased feeling of hunger. Moreover, the patient feels full faster and can eat smaller portions of food.
Nutrition is one of the main focuses after weight loss surgery to maximize weight loss and prevent weight gain. We offer a dietitian who will talk with you about the diet you’ll need to follow after surgery, explaining what types of food and how much you can eat at each meal.
Hospital accommodation and prescribed medication is also included
