When your weight begins to affect your health, bariatric surgery is one of the most effective treatment options.
Gastric Sleeve, also known as sleeve gastrectomy, is a procedure that allows you to lose weight by reducing the size of your stomach. If you are considering Gastric Sleeve surgery to overcome excess weight, here are some things to consider.
During the procedure the size of your stomach will be reduced to the size and shape of a banana. The Gastric Sleeve allows you to lose weight by helping you control portion size. The procedure takes 60-90minutes and is done laparoscopically, a minimally invasive surgical technique. This procedure does not otherwise alter the anatomy of your digestive system and thus does not change the digestion and absorption of nutrients from the food consumed. SmartShape provides comprehensive nutritional counseling from a Registered Dietitian, who will help prepare you for the changes you will need to make before and after the procedure. After your surgery is completed, you will need to stay in the hospital for one to two days, depending on your progress and instructions from the surgeon.
