What is a Gastric Sleeve?

A Gastric Sleeve, also known as Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy, is a a minimally-invasive surgery performed on the stomach. This 1-2 hour weight loss procedure consists of making the stomach into a long tube, or “sleeve”, by removing two-thirds of the stomach which supplies for quicker and a more prolonged satiety (sense of fullness) and decreased appetite. The smaller stomach pouch restricts food intake by allowing only a limited of food to be eaten at one time.
Gastric sleeve is a popular weight loss solution because it is designed to help you by eliminating your desire to eat as much or as often. Gastric sleeve surgery is a simpler procedure to perform than gastric bypass, resulting in lower complications and faster recovery times. Another benefit of this surgery is that your stomach will continue to function normally, and as a result, you can still eat most of your favorite foods with no worries about suffering from dumping syndrome.

Gastric Sleeve Benefits
  • Helps you lose excess weight
  • Higher quality of sleep
  • Increased energy levels
  • Minimally invasive procedure (laparoscopic, the surgeon only needs to make a few small incisions in your abdomen to operate)
  • Reduces risk for potentially life-threatening weight-related health problems like heart attacks, dementia, sleep apnea, cancer, and type 2 diabetes
  • Suppresses appetite: upper portion of stomach that produces ghrelin (hunger-stimulating hormone) is removed
  • Reduces likeliness of getting stomach ulcers

This will depend on how well patients follow their post-op diet provided by their doctor. The procedure will yield the most effective results in the first 6 years after surgery. An ongoing healthy diet and exercise will maintain the stomach at its smaller size.
