About Gastric Sleeve

Gastric Sleeve Surgery, also known as Sleeve Gastrectomy, is a surgical weight loss procedure. This surgery is popular with morbidly obese people because it helps reduce the original size of the stomach by almost 80%. Gastric sleeve resection is recommended for people who are unable to lose weight through non-surgical measures such as regular exercise and strict dieting.

A Gastric Sleeve resection uses a laparoscope to remove most of the stomach. About 75-85% of the stomach is removed, leaving a long "sleeve" like structure or bag. Gastric sleeve surgery helps reduce the size of the stomach permanently and is an irreversible surgery.

Gastric Sleeve removal is performed to reduce the size of the stomach. This, in turn aids in weight loss through her two mechanisms:

  • Early feeling of fullness leads to a reduced portion of food that the individual is able to eat at a time.
  • Reduced secretion of ghrelin, which is a hormone that triggers hunger and is produced by the stomach.


The following people are seen to be the best candidates for gastric sleeve surgery:

  • People who are morbidly and profoundly obese tend to have shorter lives or are more likely to experience health issues.
  • Individuals who are 100 pounds or more over their optimal body weight or who have a BMI of 40 or higher.
  • Patients who are 80 pounds over their target weight or who have a BMI of 35 or higher in addition to other health conditions like hypertension, diabetes, and sleep apnea.
