Our Bariatric Nutritionist Answers:
“Gastric sleeve patients generally require a pureed diet longer than Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, gastric banding, or other surgical weight loss patients because with the sleeve, there is a longer suture line where a large portion of the stomach (almost 75%) of it is cut away. This internal suture line needs more time to heal and purees are easier for the stomach to tolerate than softer foods.”
