Gastric Sleeve Procedure

The Gastric Sleeve procedure is a minimally invasive, laparoscopic specialized technique. The entire surgery generally takes less than an hour with 30 minutes of actual surgery time. For your safety and comfort, you are given a general anesthetic which puts you to sleep during the entire procedure. Once under anesthesia, a few small incisions are made in your abdomen to allow for a camera and surgical instruments. This bariatric procedure involves surgically removing a portion of your stomach, sealing the remaining part with surgical staples forming the “sleeve”, and ultimately reducing your stomach size by about 80%. After the surgery:
  1. You will feel full and satisfied after eating less
  2. Appetite and cravings are substantially diminished due to fewer hunger-causing hormones
  3. Dramatic improvement or complete resolution of most weight-related medical conditions

  • How long does the surgery take?

    The duration of the surgery varies for each individual. With a highly experienced bariatric surgeon, the surgery itself often takes less than 30 minutes.

  • Can gastric sleeve surgery be reversed if needed?

    Gastric sleeve surgery is designed to be a permanent solution for weight loss and improved health. During the procedure, a significant portion of the stomach is removed, including the stretchy part that allows for expansion. As a result, the surgery is not reversible in the traditional sense.

    However, it is important to note that in rare and unusual circumstances, gastric sleeve surgery can be converted to another type of weight loss procedure, such as a gastric bypass or duodenal switch. These situations are exceedingly uncommon.

By removing the stretchy portion of the stomach, the procedure helps to reduce hunger and promote a feeling of fullness, making it easier for patients to maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle.

It’s really no big deal and easy to manage.

  • Can I still enjoy meals and dine out?
