The gastric sleeve surgery (also known as sleeve gastrectomy) can help you regain control over your body, lose extra pounds, and achieve a more slender figure. This restrictive procedure reduces the size of your stomach, limiting your consumption of food and delivering effective weight loss results.
Everyone knows that an active lifestyle is the best and healthiest way to lose weight. In spite of this conventional wisdom, however, exercise and nutrition counseling sometimes fail to do the trick, necessitating more radical weight loss interventions. The gastric sleeve surgery will effectively limit the amount of food you consume by reducing the size of your stomach. Following the procedure, most patients report feeling less hungry and being able to feel full sooner after eating. As a result, they are able to lose a significant amount of weight, improve their health, enhance the overall quality of life, and increase their longevity.
Compared to gastric bypass surgery, the gastric sleeve surgery is significantly less invasive because it does not involve reconnecting the intestines. Furthermore, unlike the Lap-Band surgery, it does not necessitate placing a banding device around the upper stomach. For this reason its successful outcome will not depend on the patient’s capacity to tolerate foreign objects implanted in the body.
