How Gastric Sleeve Surgery Works​

The key to weight loss is reducing food intake and putting your hunger hormones or appetite in check. A common set back with weight loss routines like exercising and dieting is that people get caught in a fluctuation cycle where they repeatedly lose and put on weight.

Gastric sleeve surgery takes out up to 80% of the stomach to allow for rapid weight loss. Reducing stomach size means less room for food. That means you will get full easily and won’t have to eat as much during the day.

One would think that a procedure of this nature will take hours. On the contrary, it only takes about an hour.

Just so you have an idea of what the procedure looks like, the surgeon will make small cuts on your belly to enable him to insert a laparoscope. A laparoscope is an instrument that has a tiny camera at one end that sends images to a monitor.

The surgeon will use the laparoscope in conjunction with other medical instruments to maneuver and remove approximately 3/4 of your stomach. Afterward, he will reattach the remaining parts of the stomach to form the sleeve or banana-sized tube that will now serve as your new stomach. You may be put on bed rest for up to two days after the surgery to ensure that everything is fine before you will be discharged to go home.
