Gastric Sleeve in India-Say YES to Weight loss,NO to Obesity

There’s a lot of self help advice out there asking you to lose weight on your own, through diet and exercise. Easier said than done! Most of us fail miserably in our efforts to lose weight. As much as we all hate to be called as ‘the fat one’, we just can’t help but fail in our weight loss programs. Or even worse, the scales just don’t show any drop in our body weights in spite of our religiously following of the diet regimen. Medical Science has just the right solution you need- Sleeve gastrectomy.

Sleeve Gastrectomy - Getting to the root of the problem


Why do we get fat? Because we eat more. Why do we eat more? Because we are hungry. Why can’t you eat less when you are hungry? Because our stomachs are not full until we eat ‘enough’. Nope, we are not conversing with a small kid, we are just trying to get to the root of the problem. You see, the main reasons why you keep on adding to your weight are simply because you keep getting hungry and your stomachs are never ‘full enough’. So obvious and still so overlooked! Sleeve gastrectomy is so effective in weight reduction because it solves the problem at its root.

Sleevegastrectomy involves removing a large portion of the stomach, reducing it to one quarter of its original size. It is irreversible as it permanently removes the larger portion of the stomach. It works both ways. Since the size of the stomach has been considerably reduced, you feel full even after eating smaller meals. Also, the removed region of the stomach contains fundus, the area responsible for the production of hunger-hormone called ghrelin. As a result, you are less affected by hunger pangs. In short, feeling ‘full’ earlier + less hunger = weight reduction.

How Sleeve Gastrectomy Works


Why Sleeve Gastrectomy?


Bariatric surgeons in India as across the world are of the opinion that sleeve gastrectomy is more advantageous than other weight loss surgical procedures because there aren’t foreign devices implanted into the body nor is there any rerouting of the intestines involved. Now the big question! How much weight can you expect to lose after the surgery? Studies indicate that people lose up to 80% of their excess body weight within 6-12 months after the surgery.

Recent trends suggest that many opt for undergoing their weight loss surgeries like sleeve gastrectomy in India instead of their home countries. This could be because of expertise of Indian bariatric surgeons, finest hospitals as well as affordable medical costs. A typical sleeve gastrectomy could cost you £12,000 in UK, $ 11,500 in Belgium and $ 20,000 in USA or even more. While the costs start as low as 6000 $ in India!

Is it a good idea to travel abroad for surgery?


But isn’t it risky traveling abroad for weight loss surgery? No, not if you are under the efficient medical supervision of India’s best bariatric surgeons. You are required to stay in the hospital for 2-3 days and a week more in India before you can head back to your home. If you know someone (or if you are the one) dealing with the never ending physical, mental and social issues that come with obesity, do recommend undergoing sleeve gastrectomy in India.
