How does the gastric sleeve aid in weight loss?
Sleeve gastrectomy is a surgery to remove part of the stomach to help with weight loss. The surgery, which is also called gastric sleeve surgery, limits the amount of food your stomach can hold.
The Gastric Sleeve Surgery (or Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy) is a bariatric procedure that removes 75-80% of the stomach. It is now the most commonly performed bariatric procedure in Iran and worldwide. Our experts at Mediranco help you choose the best procedures to attain your desired weight.
In this procedure, a portion of your stomach is removed, and the remaining pieces are joined to create a new, banana-sized stomach, or “sleeve.” You’ll feel full much more quickly than before with just a tiny sack (roughly one-tenth the size of your original stomach). You’ll be unable to eat as much as you once could, which aids in weight loss. Additionally, a part of your stomach that produces a hormone that increases appetite is removed during surgery.
Not everyone who is overweight is a candidate for a gastric sleeve, but if you are extremely obese and have another medical condition that would improve with weight loss, you might be. Before moving forward, you must understand the risks and advantages. If you qualify, there are several health advantages to consider that might outweigh the adverse effects. You can contact our experts who are more than eager to answer your queries 24/7.
