Overview of Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Gastric sleeve is a restrictive obesity surgical procedure that aims to combat obesity by reducing the capacity of the stomach to hold food.

In this procedure, the stomach is reduced to nearly a fourth of its original size.

The surgery is performed laparoscopically, which means it is minimally invasive. Special laparoscopic surgery tools and a tiny camera are placed through the small incisions made in the abdomen.[1]

With nearly 75% of it removed, the new stomach looks like a tube, banana, or sleeve.

Because of the reduced stomach capacity, you feel full after eating much smaller quantities of food.

Please take note that gastric sleeve surgery warrants commitment to serious lifestyle changes. It is not a shortcut to weight loss.

You will have to reduce the portion sizes of food you have and also incorporate exercise in your routine.
