Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Gastric Sleeve Surgery, also known as sleeve gastrectomy, is a bariatric procedure designed to aid individuals in achieving weight loss by reducing the size of the stomach. This surgery involves removing a significant portion of the stomach to create a smaller “sleeve” or tube-like structure. As a result, patients feel fuller faster, consume fewer calories, and experience significant weight loss over time

Who Needs Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Gastric Sleeve Surgery is typically recommended for individuals who meet the following criteria:

  • Body Mass Index (BMI): Candidates usually have a BMI of 40 or higher, or a BMI of 35-39.9 with obesity-related health conditions.
  • Failed Weight Loss Attempts: Candidates should have a history of attempting weight loss through diet, exercise, and other methods without achieving sustainable results.
  • Health Complications: Individuals with obesity-related health issues like diabetes, hypertension, or sleep apnea may be considered for this surgery.
  • Commitment to Lifestyle Changes: Candidates must be dedicated to making long-term dietary and lifestyle changes to support the surgery’s success.

When to See a Specialist

If you’re struggling with obesity and haven’t achieved significant weight loss through conventional methods, it’s advisable to consult a medical specialist. A bariatric surgeon can evaluate your health, discuss potential treatment options, and determine if gastric sleeve surgery is a suitable choice for your unique situation.


  • Preparation: Before the surgery, you’ll undergo a thorough evaluation, including medical tests and assessments. You may need to follow a specific diet to prepare for the surgery.
  • Anesthesia: Gastric sleeve surgery is performed under general anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure.
  • Sleeve Creation: The surgeon makes several small incisions in the abdomen and uses specialized instruments to remove about 80-85% of the stomach, leaving a small, banana-shaped sleeve.
  • Stomach Stapling: The remaining portions of the stomach are stapled or sutured together to create the new stomach shape.
  • Closure: The incisions are closed using sutures or surgical staples, and you’ll be closely monitored in a recovery area.

Road to Recovery

After the surgery, you’ll spend a few days in the hospital for observation and recovery. Your diet will initially consist of clear liquids and then gradually progress to pureed and soft foods. Over time, you’ll reintroduce solid foods as guided by your medical team. Regular follow-up appointments are crucial to monitor your progress and ensure optimal results.

Risk Management

Gastric sleeve surgery carries risks, including infection, bleeding, blood clots, and complications related to anesthesia. Additionally, there’s a small possibility of leaks at the staple line. Adhering to post-operative guidelines, attending follow-up appointments, and promptly addressing any concerns with your healthcare team can help mitigate these risks.

Benefits of Gastric Sleeve Surgery

  • Effective Weight Loss: Gastric sleeve surgery often leads to substantial and sustained weight loss, improving overall health and reducing the risk of obesity-related conditions.
  • Reduced Hunger: The removal of a portion of the stomach can lead to decreased appetite and more controlled eating habits.
  • Improved Metabolism: Some patients experience improved metabolic function, contributing to weight loss and better energy levels.
  • Health Condition Improvement: Many obesity-related health issues, such as type 2 diabetes and hypertension, may improve or even resolve following the surgery.
