Recently, during sleeve gastrectomy also known as laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy or sleeve gastrectomy, which is the first choice of patients in bariatric surgery worldwide, 80% of the stomach is removed by laparoscopic method (closed surgery), including the part where ghrelin (hunger hormone) hormone is secreted, and the stomach takes the form of a tube. Thus, the stomach, which can receive food in a volume of 1500 cc, can only take 100-150 cc of food after gastric sleeve surgery. With the decrease in the stomach's intake capacity and appetite, the food consumption of the patient decreases, and the weight loss begins.

Gastric sleeve is recommended as an appropriate method for patients between the ages of 20 and 55, by evaluating their current medical history. Sleeve gastrectomy is suggested for patients with a body mass index of 30 or more. If you already tried your best to lose weight yet you did not succeed, and you are willing to change your eating habits for good then gastric sleeve can be an answer for you.


What to Do After Gastric Sleeve Operation?

After sleeve gastrectomy, a liquid diet for the first 15 days begins and within one month after the surgery, the patient can switch to consuming solid food. Nutrition and diet plan are made under dietician follow-up and the patient will be monitored for a month. Mild exercises such as taking walks are recommended to support weight loss.


What Are the Advantages of Gastric Sleeve Operation?

Adaptation to a healthier lifestyle is the biggest advantage of gastric sleeve operation. The gastric sleeve surgery enables to drop pounds pretty fast giving the patient motivation to keep going. Thanks to the reduction of the volume of the stomach, the patient consumes truly little food and reaches a feeling of fullness quickly. A faster recovery process is possible, as the surgery will be performed by the laparoscopy method. With the removal of the hunger hormone, the reduction of the feeling of hunger occurs leading to an easier and less stressful recovery period. The patient says goodbye to co-morbid diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and sleep apnea thanks to weight loss.

Patients should keep in mind that gastric sleeve surgery does not prevent them from eating junk food and cravings on its own; patients are in charge of controlling themselves for long-term results.
