Gastric sleeve surgery Abroad

Gastric sleeve, also known as “Sleeve gastrectomy”, is a relatively new procedure to help with weight loss, where the surgeon removes a large portion of your stomach, approximately 75-80% of it, leaving the remaining stomach as a vertical tube structure that resembles a banana.

The new stomach pouch holds considerably less than the normal stomach and helps to reduce the amount of food you can eat in one sitting comfortably. The food also moves faster in the new stomach pouch.

The Gastric sleeve has been gaining popularity because of its low complication rate and good weight loss results. Some advantages are:

  • Minimally invasive procedure, with low complication rates.
  • Relatively short hospital stay of approximately four days.
  • Improvement of obesity-related health problems, including type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, fatty liver disease and sleep apnea.
  • Effective weight loss, up to 60% of his or her excess weight in most cases.
  • Improvement of the quality of life acquiring healthy habits and gaining self-esteem and feeling healthier.
