The Gastric Sleeve is an ideal choice of procedure for people who want a long term surgical option, but prefer not to have an implanted device, such as a gastric band. This is an exciting weight loss option that combines many of the advantages of a gastric band with those of a gastric bypass.
It works by removing a portion of the stomach to reduce its’ size by around 80%*. The resulting decrease in capacity leads to substantial weight loss. This is an excellent choice of procedure for people who do not want the anatomical alteration and ongoing side effects of a gastric bypass or the insertion of a device such as a gastric band.
* results may differ from person to person and wont be the same for everyone.
