Gastric sleeve surgery is one of the most common procedures among bariatric surgery. This procedure plays an effective role in obesity and excess weight-related health problems. Gastric sleeve surgery reviews are popular among patients who consider this treatment option to lose weight.

What is the safest form of weight loss surgery?

Two commonly preferred methods in weight loss surgery are gastric sleeve and gastric bypass. This is because of the high success rate. Gastric sleeve is considered to be safer than gastric bypass.

Gastric sleeve or also known as sleeve gastrectomy is a restrictive weight loss surgery by making the stomach smaller. This operation performed with laparoscopic method from small incisions takes a large part of the stomach including hunger hormone-secreting part out. Thus, patients eat less food after the surgery and they start losing weight by feeling fuller. Since patients do not feel hungry, they do not have a problem in weighing losing.

Is it worth getting a gastric sleeve?

Gastric sleeve surgery is not only a treatment for weight loss. These surgeries can treat diseases like type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure or sleep apnea.

Another popular weight loss surgery than gastric sleeve is gastric bypass. But in gastric bypass surgery, both stomach and small intestine are changed. Therefore, it is a more complex surgery.

Since the gastric sleeve is performed with the laparoscopic method, recovery is shorter and not operating on the small intestine reduces the complication risk.

What are the long-term side effects of the gastric sleeve?

All operations that require surgical intervention have certain risks. Gastric sleeve surgery is similar to any other surgery in terms of risks.

These risks can be listed as bleeding, embolus, infection, surgical wounds and leakage. Over long-term, problems such as gastrointestinal obstruction, hernia, hypoglycemia, gallbladder stone can occur.

The most important factors that minimize surgery risks are the experience of bariatric surgeon, the technology of medical devices and tools and equipment of the hospital or clinic. If these three factors give trust, the surgery complication risks decrease.

When does the weight loss start after the surgery?

Weight losing process is among the popular gastric sleeve surgery reviews.

After the surgery, weight loss will start in the first months and ideal weight is reached over long-term.

The weight loss depends on the patient’s weight, age, body mass index before the surgery but it is possible to lose 10-20 kg in the first month. Generally, patients lose 10% of the excess weight in the first month and 5% per month weight loss is predicted for the following months.

After gastric sleeve surgery, patients continue to lose weight for the first 1 and 1.5 years.

What is the success rate of gastric sleeve surgery?

The results are different for each patient. But research results show that patients who have this procedure can lose 50% to 80% of excess weight before the surgery.

What is the process after surgery?

Generally, patients are discharged 3 days after the surgery. A strict diet program is applied in the first 2 months. This program specially prepared by diet and nutrition experts involves liquid food in the first weeks and solid food is consumed gradually. Again, the surgeon might recommend various supplements after the surgery.

It is important to avoid heavy physical activity in the first weeks.

If patients eat small amounts of food, they can tolerate any food after gastric sleeve surgery.

Maybe one of the most important elements after weight loss surgery is that patients should be willing to change their eating habits and lifestyle. When the program recommended by the surgeon and dietitian is followed, a healthy lifestyle is adopted and harmful habits are avoided, weight loss will be permanent.

How long does it take for your stomach to heal after gastric sleeve?

Surgical wounds are healed in one week. After the surgery, patients can go back to work after 2nd or 3rd week depending on their condition. Full recovery might take several months.

Who are the suitable patients for gastric sleeve surgery?
