Sleeve gastrectomy

Sleeve gastrectomy
Sleeve gastrectomy is a surgical weight-loss intervention, most commonly performed laparoscopically, meaning that 80% of the stomach is reduced through microscopic incisions in the upper part of the abdomen. The rest of the stomach, that remains, has a tube shape and is about the size of a banana.

Lessening the size of the stomach, diminishes the quantity of food you are able to consume, while also stimulating hormonal changes internally that contribute to weight loss, lowering high blood pressure and reducing the risks of heart disease.

  • Your body mass index (BMI) is 40 or higher (extreme obesity).
  • Your BMI is 35 to 39.9 (obesity), and you have a serious weight-related health issus, such as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes or severe slp apnea. In some cases, you may qualify for crtin types of weight-loss surgery if yur BMI is 30 to 34 and yu hve serious wight-reltd hlth problems.
