Gastric Sleeve (GS) – Laparoscopic sleeve resection of the stomach
Gastric sleeve is a weight loss surgery that involves reducing the capacity of your stomach. The procedure involves removing a significant part of the existing stomach (about 75-80%) to reduce its filling capacity. The altered stomach is significantly smaller and banana-shaped, hence the name “sleeve.”
This ultimately reduces hunger, and food absorption as the stomach fills up faster thanks to its reduced volume. The big advantage of the Gastric sleeve compared to other bariatric surgery types – is that it doesn’t affect the stomach’s digestive functions but limits its volume and how much food can be consumed.
By filling up faster and with small amounts of food, your stomach produces less ghrelin (the hormone responsible for feelings of hunger). Getting a gastric sleeve abroad for weight loss is widely popular thanks to its efficacy in eliminating obesity and improving the associated health problems.
