Gastric Sleeve, also known as Sleeve Gastrectomy, is a type of bariatric or weight loss surgery that aims for dramatic weight loss.

By modifying the digestive system, gastric sleeve is an efficient method to help you lose weight. The operation is done by using laparoscopic surgery technique which has a positive impact on the process and length of the post-op recovery.

After the surgery, you will feel full with much less food and lose weight in a stable and effective way.

What is Gastric Sleeve?

Gastric sleeve surgery permanently removes around 75% of your stomach. Since the capacity of the stomach is reduced by a gastric sleeve surgery, it will not hold as much food as it used to. And you will not eat as much as you eat before the surgery because you will feel full sooner.

Sleeve gastrectomy is performed under general anesthesia and usually performed laparoscopically (a small tube that has a camera and surgical tools attached). Surgeries performed by laparoscopy does not require big incisions. Only a few small incisions are made in the upper abdomen area. Then, through these incisions, your plastic surgeon staples a small portion of your stomach by creating a narrow sleeve and removes the remaining, excess stomach.

Gastric sleeve surgery is one of the most popular weight loss surgery procedures because thanks to the latest technology (laparoscopy) it offers a minimally-invasive and low-risk bariatric surgery.
