Gastric sleeve surgery is a weight loss surgery in which a large part of the stomach is removed. After the surgery, the feeling of fullness occurs more quickly, and satiety occurs after eating a small amount of food. This surgery results in less hunger pangs because a smaller stomach produces smaller amounts of the hunger-inducing hormone ghrelin.
In gastric sleeve surgery, the surgeon removes the rest of the stomach using a stapler to create a small tube or 'pathway' in the stomach. After surgery, the stomach is one-fifth full.
Gastric sleeve surgery is one of the types of obesity surgery, also known as weight loss surgery.

How Is Stomach Reduction Surgery Performed?

Gastric reduction surgery is also known as morbid obesity treatment. In order to undergo this surgery, you have to go through a checkup by a specialist. It is known that morbid obesity affects a person's life in many ways. In addition, if you suffer from type 2 diabetes, which is usually associated with morbid obesity, the specialist will take all your circumstances into consideration during the surgery. Gastric sleeve surgery results in physical and hormonal changes and is often performed using the laparoscopic method.

Suitability For Gastric Sleeve Surgery

One of the frequently asked questions in weight loss surgery is: Is every patient suitable for sleeve gastrectomy surgery?

The answer to this question may vary depending on several variables. First of all, some diagnosis is required before you can undergo this obesity treatment.

  • Your body mass index should be above 40. In some cases, the gastric balloon procedure produces effective results even in patients with a body mass index of 40 - 45.
  • Having a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes which is associated with morbid obesity. Type 2 diabetes is the inability of the pancreas to produce enough insulin, or the increase in blood glucose levels due to the body's inadequate use of the insulin it secretes. This condition usually occurs in people over the age of 40, but can occur from time to time in younger age groups. Patients with type 2 diabetes, in particular, achieve better results with gastric sleeve reduction.
