Sleeve gastrectomy

Many people strive to maintain an ideal healthy weight that attracts attention, especially obese people. Because weight gain has negative effects not only on the body, but also on the person’s psyche. The individual resorts to many methods, such as gastric sleeve surgery. It is an established procedure in itself to reduce weight or a previous stage of duodenal or duodenal diversion surgery, and gastric sleeve surgery is performed in most cases through the use of a laparoscope, as this surgery involves removing about 75% of the stomach, so that the rest of it represents a narrow gastric tube It should be noted that this procedure does not include removing or bypassing any part of the intestine, and in general, this surgery takes a period ranging from one to two hours.

It can be said that gastric sleeve surgery contributes to significantly reducing the size of the stomach and limiting the amount of food that can be eaten at one time, so that a person feels full after eating very small amounts of food, and it may also lead to a decrease in appetite for some.

It is worth noting that the gastric sleeve operation is the same as the sleeve gastrectomy, and in the sleeve gastrectomy, small medical tools are inserted after making small incisions in the upper abdomen and about 80% of the stomach is removed, so that its shape and size become the size of a banana.
