ABOUT OUR SURGERIES
The sleeve gastrectomy (also known as the gastric sleeve) is the most commonly performed bariatric surgery in the past decade.
It involves creating a much smaller stomach that limits the amount of food you can eat and that reduces the sensation of hunger.
Weight loss outcomes have been proven to be very good in the long-term when patients comply with the medical, nutrition, and lifestyle recommendations.
How it works
The sleeve gastrectomy works in a few different ways to promote weight loss:
LOSE 60% OF YOUR EXCESS WEIGHT
You can expect to lose about 60% of your excess weight by 1 year after surgery with a much higher likelihood of keeping the weight off for many years to come. However, this will require you to follow the medical, nutrition, and lifestyle advice recommended by our medical team, including the surgeon, nurse, and dietitian.
In addition to weight loss, you will feel and experience and improvement in any obesity-related health conditions you may have, such as improved or resolved diabetes, improved cholesterol levels, improved blood pressure, less joint and back pain, and improved airway function (asthma and/or sleep apnea). Research has also shown a lower risk of developing obesity-related cancer after having bariatric surgery, and people who have surgery live longer than those who do not. In addition, women may also experience an improvement in fertility.
