Gastric Sleeve is is a procedure that removes 75-80% of the stomach using minimally invasive surgical techniques. It’s advised for people who have tried other weight loss methods without long-term success.

How does the Gastric Sleeve surgery work?

  1. There is a reduction in stomach volume, causing people to feel full much quicker after the surgery
  2. Hormonal changes such as reduced secretion of hunger hormones cause people to feel less hungry
  3. Increased stomach motility, which allows food to pass stomach and intestine quicker after surgery
  4. Weight loss occurs over 18 months.
  5. Technically, the Gastric Sleeve is a much simpler surgery. The operating time for gastric sleeve is usually 40-70 minutes
  6. Most patients go home the day after surgery.
