Most people are living at the high end of their genetic weight range. This genetic trend accompanied by present-day eating habits add up to a condition called obesity.Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy or sleeve includes the removal of (about 75%) the stomach along the greater curvature surgically. This is preferred by candidates who want a straightforward weight loss procedure.
Not all who are obese qualify for gastric sleeve. Adults (18 -65 age) who are morbidly obese ie who have a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or higher are considered ideal candidates for a sleeve.
A proper diet to reduce the size of the liver is followed 2 weeks before the surgery date.
Your way of eating will change before and after the surgery.
This minimally invasive procedure takes less time to heal and is comparatively less painful. Very small incisions between .5 and 1.5 centimeters are made initially. A vertical incision is made in the stomach in an attempt to create a long sleeve. The portion of the stomach removed is the part where the hunger-stimulating hormone, Ghrelin is produced. As a result, the patient after having undergone the procedure will have a lesser appetite. This, however, will not affect the rate at which vitamins and minerals are absorbed.
Before you jump to conclusions, make yourself aware of the complications that follow. The procedure once performed is irreversible in nature. Vomiting and spasm may be there for the patients who have undergone this procedure. These are mostly observed within the first month after the surgery.
Sleeve gastrectomy is nothing but a way to get your desired shape. It's nothing scary!
