Gastric Sleeve 

Gastric sleeve surgery, also known as sleeve gastrectomy or vertical sleeve gastrectomy is the most popular weight loss surgery among surgeons and common public alike. The magical surgery can lead to 80 % reduction in body weight in about 6-12 months after the surgery.

Gastric sleeve differs from other weight loss surgery procedures in that it neither reroutes intestinal paths nor does it involve inserting any foreign devices in your digestive tract.

Gastric sleeve considerably reduces the size of your stomach to about one-fourth of its original size. By removing such a wide portion of your stomach along its curvature, it literally grants your wish ‘if only my stomach was smaller’. 

The good news is that it does not stop here. Since fundus, the area of stomach responsible for secreting the hunger hormone ghrelin gets removed in the process, you are left with lesser hunger pangs. Now that’s what we call effective strategy for weight loss – smaller stomachs, less hunger!

Gastric sleeve surgery is irreversible. Needless to say, it changes your diet regimen. Now that you feel fuller with much less quantity of food, you ought to ensure that your body does not get deficient in certain nutrients. So choosing your diet carefully needs to chart top at your priorities.
