What is gastric sleeve surgery?
The laparoscopic gastric sleeve surgery, also known as vertical sleeve gastrectomy (VSG) or sleeve gastrectomy is nowadays one of the most commonly performed weight loss procedures around the globe.
The gastric sleeve involves the surgical removal of 70% of the left portion of the stomach, leaving behind a small pouch which resembles the shape of a coat’s sleeve.
The significant change in the size of the stomach allows patients to feel full and satisfied with just small and healthy portions of food. This results in fewer calories consumed daily, and over time can produce dramatic, yet safe, weight loss results.
The reason this procedure has become extremely popular is because the gastric sleeve success stories are abundant around the world and the downsides are scarce. If you would like to watch some examples of actual patients you can see our gastric sleeve before and after gallery.
