What Is Gastric Sleeve Surgery?

Gastric Sleeve surgery is among the several types of weight-loss surgery that promises long-term results. As the name suggests, the stomach’s size will be reduced to a tube-like form. This is done by taking 70-80% of the stomach, allowing for a lesser appetite. Patients who have gone through this surgery reported to have shown results in just a few weeks.

Who Needs Gastric Sleeve Surgery?

The people who are recommended to have this operation are those with health conditions that were aggravated due to their weight such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease. And after trying out other options like exercise and a strict diet to no avail, then gastric sleeve surgery is suggested.

What to Expect from the Surgery

Our specialists here at Lighter Dream Bariatric Services can perform gastric sleeve operations on patients in 45 minutes or so. This type of bariatric surgery, what weight-loss surgeries are collectively called, is one of the quickest to do. And results can already be noticed in just a couple of weeks.

We provide counseling for our patients once they qualify for the procedure to make sure they are emotionally and mentally prepared for the said surgery. Additionally, we provide aftercare after the operation to help our patients recover fast. We also educate patients on what course of action to avoid to prevent complications, especially in the weeks following the operation.

The operation is not the end of the weight loss journey, but just the start. To sustain good results, we highly advise our patients to follow their prescribed diet and exercise. The price of a gastric sleeve procedure starts at $4299.
