How Gastric Sleeve Changes People’s Lives
Frequently Asked Questions
A sleeve gastrectomy is a surgical procedure, during which the outer margin of the stomach is removed to limit food intake, leaving behind only a small sleeve of the stomach. This sleeve is roughly the size of a banana. Sleeve gastrectomies are performed with the overall goal of allowing patients to lose weight and improving the condition of the medical problems that come with obesity, including diabetes, high blood pressure, and hypertension.
A sleeve gastrectomy helps patients lose weight in two key ways: by decreasing the overall size of the stomach and removing the portion of the stomach that releases hormones responsible for feelings of hunger. During a sleeve gastrectomy, 70% of the stomach is removed, leaving behind only a sleeve that is roughly the size of a banana. This includes the upper portion of the stomach that releases hormones that stimulate feelings of hunger. The entire surgical procedure typically takes between one and two hours to complete, and is performed laparoscopically. Because the overall size of the stomach is significantly decreased, patients are able to feel full after consuming fewer calories.
