If you frequently read our post, you will know that the differences between placing a gastric bypass in Vadodara, Surat, Rajkot, Bharuch, Anand, Nadiad and doing the same but with a gastric sleeve lie only in the digestive transit. With the second, it does not undergo any change but with gastric bypass the small bag is connected directly to the small intestine, leaving part of the digestive process without function. In this case we are going to focus on the sleeve, specifically, in the postoperative period.

The gastric sleeve consists of reducing the capacity of the stomach by up to 80%. The intervention is in the hands of a bariatric surgeon and must always be done in an authorized health center such as Laparoscopic Weight Loss Surgery.

It is a minimally invasive intervention performed by laparoscopy. The stomach is reduced by 80%, modifying its shape and turning it into a kind of tube or sleeve. We will ensure that the patient is satisfied earlier and eats less food. The reason is that the stomach is smaller and secretes less ghrelin (appetite regulating hormone).

ADVANTAGES OF THE GASTRIC SLEEVE

  • Minimally invasive surgery with little postoperative discomfort
  • Reduces the stomach by 80%
  • 70-80% loss of excess weight
  • Increases self-esteem and lowers anxiety caused by being overweight

THE POSTOPERATIVE

With the gastric sleeve, weight loss begins the day after the intervention. Thus, the levels in diseases associated with obesity are reduced. First of all, the future patient undergoes a medical check-up to determine his health. Two weeks before surgery a liquid diet is started. The surgical process lasts less than 2 hours and it is normal for the patient to stay in the hospital for two nights. The first days, you will notice slight discomfort in the abdomen, which will subside after a few days.

After surgery, feeding must be gradually reintroduced, with 2 weeks of liquid diet and 2 weeks of shredded diet, until solid foods are incorporated. Post-intervention follow-up is key and frequent medical check-ups will have to be scheduled over the next two years.
