Sleeve gastrectomy involves removing a portion of the stomach, so you feel less hungry and eat less. Could sleeve gastrectomy—also called gastric sleeve surgery—help you? Watch this video to learn more.
Sleeve gastrectomy procedures is done laparoscopically “with tiny incisions”, which reduces blood loss, post-surgical pain, hospital stay, and shorten recovery time. During the procedure, a portion of the stomach is removed, so that you get full from less food. The portion of the stomach that is removed has cells that release a hormone called ghrelin that stimulates hunger, so you’ll feel satisfied with smaller portions.
