Gastric Sleeve

Gastric Sleeve

If you have been unable to maintain weight loss through diet, exercise, and/or medication, you might be considering weight loss surgery. Weight loss surgery, also known as bariatric surgery, is a safe, proven option for weight loss. Weight loss surgery is not a quick-fix or an easy way out. But when it's accompanied by permanent lifestyle changes, it can help you achieve lasting benefits in your physical, emotional, and social well-being.

When facing weight loss challenges, you need compassionate and extensive assistance. At Obesity Solutions our team of weight loss experts — including bariatric surgeons and registered dietitians— help you overcome weight loss obstacles with personalised treatment programs.

The most efficient and minimum invasive procedure for quick, long-term weight loss provided by our bariatric specialists is the gastric balloon surgery. Using the latest techniques and research to guide your treatment, we can help you achieve your weight loss goals. While losing weight, our team closely works with a primary care provider to help reduce or eliminate medications that you may already be taking.

Advanced, effective weight loss surgery

During gastric sleeve surgery, the surgeon removes a part of the stomach and makes a narrow tube or "sleeve" out of the rest. The new, banana-shaped stomach is much smaller than the original stomach. After the operation, a person will eat less, feel full sooner and is less starved.

With this procedure, which is usually performed laparoscopically, the surgeon removes approximately 75 percent of the stomach. Although this procedure was initially developed for super obese or high risk patients as the first phase of a two-stage operation, the sleeve gastrectomy is now widely used to treat people with BMI higher than 31 with the main goal of losing weight.

This minimally invasive surgery is associated with less pain, a shorter hospital stay and fewer complications. Thousands of these processes have been carried out by our skilled surgeons. You're in excellent hands as a patient.

This procedure can:
Help regulate sweet cravings and carbohydrate;
• Reduce starvation and enhanced satiety with less food;
Half of the patients are able to leave hospital after one night. Depending on personal recovery, the other half goes home after the second night.

Long-term weight loss support

If currently applicable, you and your physician may choose to stop taking diabetes medication, blood pressure medications or other medications after surgery. On average our patients lose around 30 pounds in the first month after this surgery. Then you will lose between one and two pounds each week.
