Show the clinics offering Gastric sleeve
Gastric sleeve, known as a sleeve gastrectomy surgery, is a bariatric procedure performed in obese people in need of a massive weight loss to regain health and mobility. The main idea of sleeve gastrectomy is removing about 70% – 80% of the stomach. The small pouch that remains has a sleeve shape.
The aim of gastric sleeve is to limit the amount of food that can be held in the stomach. All other stomach functions, including the digestion, are preserved. The surgery is done laparoscopically, which means that the bariatric surgeon uses a laparoscope (a small video camera) to see the inside of the stomach. Firstly, a bariatric surgeon makes a few small incisions in the tummy area, through which the long narrow special instruments are inserted. With the use of a laparoscope and video camera, a surgeon performs the gastric sleeve surgery. The operated area is also thoroughly cleared and inflated with the use of CO₂ gas, which is harmless to patients, but which enables a surgeon to perform the surgery in sterile conditions.
Needless to say, sleeve gastrectomy does not make a person fit and slim. It is only the first, yet a very important, stage. After the stomach size is reduced, a patient is able to eat only tiny amount of food and it actually causes a rapid, fast and effective weight loss.
Like any bariatric surgery, gastric sleeve aims at causing a process of a weight loss. There are three main factors explaining how the gastric sleeve works.
