How Does Gastric Sleeve Surgery Work?

Gastric sleeve surgery — also known as a vertical sleeve gastrectomy (VSG) — is a bariatric weight loss procedure that reduces the size of the stomach by approximately 80% and reshapes it into a tube-like structure that resembles a banana. Not only does this mean you will feel full after consuming less food, but gastric sleeve surgery also limits the absorption of dietary fat and calories from food. Gastric sleeve surgery works in a few different ways:

Obesity can be a real struggle, keeping you from doing what you want to do and jeopardizing your health. Diets and exercise programs are not always enough, and if they haven’t been effective for you so far, gastric sleeve surgery might be the solution!

Gastric Sleeve SurgeryThis minimally invasive procedure removes almost 80% of your stomach, so you feel full faster and absorb fewer calories from your food. Gastric sleeve surgery also removes the part of your stomach responsible for producing ghrelin (the hormone that makes you hungry), giving you back control of your appetite and reducing your hunger pangs.

If you have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or over, gastric sleeve surgery in Mexico provides a lasting solution that can end your struggle to maintain a healthy weight.

Weight Loss Expectations From Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Typically, you can expect to lose approximately 60% of your excess weight within one year after your gastric sleeve procedure. You are expected to continue losing weight up until 18-24 months post-op. Keep in mind, weight loss isn’t the only benefit of bariatric weight loss surgery. More importantly, you can avoid or reverse the numerous health hazards associated with obesity.

How Gastric Sleeve Surgery Is Performed

Rest assured that your procedure will be as pain-free and comfortable as possible! You’ll be given a general anesthetic, which makes the experience seem like taking a long, deep nap. You won’t feel any discomfort during the operation and once complete, you will simply wake up in recovery.

BSB’s experienced surgeons perform all gastric sleeve surgery laparoscopically (without making large incisions), and normally, surgery is complete within 60 to 90 minutes.

Your surgeon will make one to five tiny incisions in your stomach and insert trocars (hollow tubes) to accommodate surgical instruments. They will then pump CO2 gas into your stomach to provide more space for the surgeon to work.

Step 01
Your surgeon will insert a laparoscope (a probe with a tiny camera) into your stomach. This is attached to a display monitor, which enables the surgeon to see your stomach clearly while performing the surgery.

Step 02
The surgeon removes approximately 80% of your stomach and fuses the remaining section using surgical staples. Your “new stomach” will look like a single banana-shaped vertical tube.

Step 03
Your surgeon will place a drain in the abdominal cavity to detect early leakage before stitching the external incisions with dissolvable sutures. The drain will be removed before you are discharged from the hospital.
