Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgery
What is Sleeve Gastrectomy (Tube Stomach) surgery?
Gastric sleeve surgery is a procedure in which most of the stomach is removed and turned into a tube.
Your surgeon will remove approximately 80-85% of the stomach during surgery, leaving a stomach that is 2-3 cm wide and can hold 60-100ml of fluid or food.
How can you lose weight with a sleeve stomach?
The remaining part of the stomach will quickly fill with food or fluid when 80-85% is removed. Thus, the patient feels more satiated by eating less.
Another benefit is that you will feel less hungry as the part that produces hunger hormones like ghrelin is removed.
How is gastric sleeve surgery performed?
The operation is performed under general anesthesia using a laparoscopic (closed) technique. With the help of laparoscopic instruments, a two-centimeter incision is made in the abdomen, placing a camera and instruments. The stomach is separated by sewing and cutting at the same time with the help of tools called staplers and steel staples.
Who is suitable for this type of surgery?
This surgery is suitable for patients with a BMI over 30. It is also suitable for women with a BMI over 35 who have diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, or problems related to infertility. Sleeve gastric surgery may also be recommended for patients who try to lose weight with the help of dieticians, treatments, or exercise over a period of six to twelve months but get no results.
Why do we recommend gastric sleeve surgery?
The sleeve gastric sleeve is the most well-known surgery related to obesity as it maintains most of the normal physiological functions of the body after the surgery. The digestive system does not change as food always travels the route from the stomach to the duodenum, small intestine, and large intestine.
Vitamin and mineral deficiencies that occur in other obesity surgeries will not occur for the rest of life after this operation. In the further life, in the event of weight gain, it is possible to have a sleeve stomach or other operations performed again. Because the gastric sleeve provides the same results as other obesity surgeries, approximately 60% of the obesity surgeries performed worldwide are sleeve gastric.
