Sleeve Gastrectomy

Patients who have a problem with obesity may want to have a sleeve gastrectomy surgery to prevent their excessive eating. Sleeve gastrectomy is a surgical weight-loss procedure. By removing a large piece of the stomach along the greater curvature, the stomach is reduced to 15% of its original size.  The sleeve gastrectomy is a permanent surgery, and after the surgery, the stomach takes the shape of a tube or “sleeve” to hold much less food. It helps to reduce the size of your stomach to limit the amount of food that can be eaten. When you eat a small amount of food, you will feel full immediately and continue to feel full for longer time. It also helps to decrease appetite. While reducing the stomach’s size, sleeve gastrectomy reduces the “hunger hormone” as well which is produced by the stomach, contributing to weight loss after the surgery.

The Sleeve Gastrectomy Side Effects

Like other surgeries, depending on patients’ conditions, sleeve gastrectomy has both side effects and benefits. There are many risks such as bleeding, infection, or the need to convert to an open procedure, but let’s be clear, the death risk of sleeve gastrectomy is 0.1%. The risk is less than a hip replacement surgery or gallbladder operation. Patients are just at risk for long-term nutrient deficiencies. It can result in physical and mental health conditions too; however, can be fixed with suitable supplements.

Is a Sleeve Gastrectomy Safe?

The sleeve gastrectomy is applied for people who have an obesity problem, it is safe, and the risks are low. You have to be examined to see if you are a good candidate for this operation. Sleeve gastrectomy is a tool to reach your goal. It limits food intake, and if you follow the plan provided by your surgeon, you may see no problem at all.
