Gastric Sleeve

A sleeve gastrectomy is a procedure that helps combat obesity by increasing the chances of weight loss. During the operation, the stomach is decreased in size. The smaller sized stomach restricts food intake and makes the feeling of fullness come sooner while eating. This means smaller portion sizes and different foods should be consumed after the procedure in order to lose weight while gaining the most nutrition. During a sleeve gastrectomy, part of the stomach is removed; leaving a new, smaller stomach that is thin and tubular is shape. The gastric sleeve procedure is nonreversible because part of the stomach will be completely removed.
