Gastric Sleeve Surgery is a relatively new procedure of bariatric surgery. This process is known by many other names as well ie, gastric sleeve resection, sleeve gastrectomy, verticalsleeve gastrectomy, tube gastrectomy and laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy and VSG.
Sleeve Gastrectomy is a restrictive procedure. It greatly reduces the size of your stomach and limits the amount of food that can be eaten at one time. It does not cause decreased absorption of nutrients or bypass your intestines. After eating a small amount of food, you will feel full very quickly and continue to feel full for several hours.
Sleeve Gastrectomy may also cause a decrease in appetite. In addition to reducing the size of the stomach, Sleeve Gastrectomy may reduce the amount of “hunger hormone” produced by the stomach which may contribute to weight loss after this procedure.
This surgical procedure for obesity treatment is suitable for the people who are fearful of undergoing other invaive weight loss surgeries. The American Society for Metabolic andBariatric Surgery quotes that, “This is the most useful application of gastric sleeve surgery at this time, because it appears to be faster and/ or easier than other weight loss surgeries in these high-risk people”.
