Gastric Sleeve Procedure: A guide to understanding this weight loss procedure.

Gastric sleeve procedure surgery, also known as sleeve gastrectomy, is a surgical procedure performed to weight loss. It´s a type of bariatric surgery, which refers to surgeries that help people with obesity achieve significant and sustained weight loss.

We believe that everyone deserves access to premium medical care without the premium price tag. That's why we're committed to bringing you the best of both worlds, top-notch medical expertise at an accessible cost.

How it works

During the surgery, about 75-85% of the stomach is removed, leaving behind a bananashaped sleeve. This reduced stomach size restricts the amount of food you can eat, leading to decreased calorie intake and ultimately, weight loss.

Potential benefits

Significant weight loss: Studies show an average weight loss of 60-70% of excess weight within 1-2 years.

Improved health. Can lead to improvements in type 2 diabetes, sleep, apnea, high blood pressure, and other obesity-related conditions.

Long-term results: compared to other weight loss surgeries, the sleeve offers potentially simpler procedures and fewer long-term complications.

This surgery can help you lose an average of 60/70% overweight in the first year and 80/90% in second year.

Who might consider it?

Adults with a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or greater (extremely obese).

Adults with a BMI of 35-39.9 (morbidly obese) with severe obesity-related health conditions.

Individuals who haven’t achieved sustainable weight loss with other methods.

Important considerations

It´s not a magic bullet: Requires significant lifestyle changes, including healthy eating and exercise habits, for long-term success.

Risks and complications: Like any surgery, it carries potential risks like infection, bleeding, and leaks.

Not reversible; It´s a permanent alteration to your digestive system.

Consulting with a qualified and certificated surgeon and undergoing thorough evaluations are crucial to determine if gastric sleeve is the right choice for you.
