Gastric Sleeve

It is a surgical method in which the biggest volume of the stomach is removed in order to rebuild a stomach at a limited volume for weight loss purposes. It is performed by a laparoscopic approach by designing your stomach structure as a tube with a limited capacity.

It is performed under general anesthesia and the surgeon uses four holes on the skin in order to perform laparoscopic surgery. The stomach volume will reduce up to 75 %. Vast majority of the extra weight is lost within 6 months to 1 year of duration after surgery.

One of the most therapeutic perspectives is reducing the other diseases like hypertension,heart disease,sleep apnea and diabetes to a lesser extent. Patients start feeling early satiety soon after the procedure.

It is very important to follow your dietitian's recommendations to maintain a healthy postoperative life. We are always ready for any teleconsultations based upon your questions about the process and please feel free to contact our team for any questions regarding sleeve gastrectomy.
