Weight-Loss Surgery Option
Also called sleeve gastrectomy, the gastric sleeve procedure removes about 80 percent of the stomach, reducing it to a thin vertical sleeve. Similar to gastric bypass and gastric band surgeries, this weight-loss surgery helps you lose weight by restricting the amount of food you can eat and helping you feel full faster.
How Gastric Sleeve Helps
The surgery also affects the levels of hormones that impact hunger, your feelings of fullness and blood sugar control.
When combined with permanent commitments to healthy eating and regular exercise, a gastric sleeve can help overweight or obese individuals shed pounds and improve their overall health.
