This type of surgery is currently the most popular form of obesity surgery. It is also known as “Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy” or “Gastric Sleeve Surgery” In this surgery performed for obesity, the doctor removes approximately 80% of the patient’s stomach. The remaining 20% of the stomach takes on a shape similar to a banana. Sleeve gastrectomy has many different aspects that facilitate weight loss. First and foremost, this procedure significantly reduces the size of the stomach, which means it cannot hold as much food at once. As a result, the patient cannot consume the same amount of calories as before.
Furthermore, most of the benefits come from the effects on the intestinal biome. The reduction in stomach volume affects the hormones present in the intestines. These hormones regulate specific factors such as hunger, satiety, and blood sugar levels.
Detailed research shows that sleeve gastrectomy is as effective as gastric bypass surgery. These studies demonstrate that it is just as effective as gastric bypass in facilitating weight loss. Moreover, this obesity surgery also proves to be beneficial in improving symptoms of type 2 diabetes.
