Gastric Sleeve Explained

  • The bariatric procedure involves removing a large part of the stomach (almost 75% of it).[1]JAMA Network
    Sleeve Gastrectomy
    “In sleeve gastrectomy, part of the stomach is removed, reducing its capacity by approximately two-thirds..”

  • The reduced stomach is just the size of a banana and even resembles it.
  • Because of the smaller stomach size, you feel full after eating only small quantities of food. This aids in weight loss.
  • Gastric sleeve is alternatively known as sleeve gastrectomy, vertical sleeve gastrectomy (VSG), gastric reduction, and greater curvature gastrectomy.
  • Your surgeon employs a laparoscope through a small incision, avoiding large cuts. Just 2-5 tiny incisions are needed for the procedure, ensuring a precise and minimally invasive approach.[2]Medline Plus
    “Some surgeons can also do this surgery using a laparoscope. A laparoscope is a tiny camera that is inserted into your belly through a small cut.”

  • After excising a major part of your stomach, the surgeon will join the remaining parts with staples.
