Surgical Weight Loss (Gastric Sleeve, Gastric Bypass)

What is a Sleeve Gastrectomy?

Gastric sleeve surgery, also known as sleeve gastrectomy, is a bariatric procedure to lose excess weight. By removing a large portion of the stomach, it creates a narrow "sleeve" that helps restrict calorie intake and reduce hunger signals. It is a commonly performed procedure worldwide, offering weight loss results and improvements in obesity-related medical conditions such as type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and sleep apnea.

Recovery after gastric sleeve surgery typically takes about a month, with a gradual progression from a liquid to a solid diet. Most individuals experience a weight loss of 25% to 30% of their body weight within the first one to two years. However, it's important to note that lifelong dietary changes and ongoing monitoring are necessary to maintain long-term success and optimal health.
