Is Gastric Sleeve Surgery Right for You?

Gastric sleeve surgery, also known as sleeve gastrectomy, involves reducing the size of the stomach so that patients will be satisfied with less food, allowing them to lose weight. Unlike some other forms of bariatric surgery, no portions of the intestines are removed, and there is no bypass. The surgery is a minimally invasive procedure, which allows for faster recovery and less hospital stay.

Gastric sleeve surgery could be right for you if you have attempted to lose weight with diet and exercise and still have not been able to reach your goal weight. You could also be a candidate if you are prepared to commit to the lifestyle changes that are necessary after surgery, including changing your diet and getting more physical activity.

The best way to learn if gastric sleeve surgery is right for you is to make an appointment at Bariatric Care Centers to discuss your options for weight loss surgery in Houston. Dial (713) 339-1353 to make an appointment at our weight loss clinic.
