Gastric Sleeve surgery is a weight loss procedure whereby approximately three-quarters of the stomach is permanently removed, significantly reducing the food-holding capacity of the organ to allow patients to feel satisfied from a much smaller meal. Average excess weight loss with Gastric Sleeve is approximately 60-80%.
This surgery is better as it requires no re-routing of the intestinal tract and comes with minimal concerns for nutritional deficiency. It also offers a more permanent solution, with no foreign body implanted and minimal ongoing follow-up required. It is most suitable for patients with a BMI of 30 and above with associated health problems, like diabetes, sleep apnoea, high blood pressure, PCOS, etc. Patients find they can tolerate a wide variety of foods, only in smaller portions, and are advised to make lifestyle changes including healthy eating habits and regular exercise.
