How Effective is the Gastric Sleeve?

The vertical sleeve gastrectomy, also known as the gastric sleeve, is a highly popular form of bariatric surgery. Unlike the Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass, the gastric sleeve involves removing up to 80% of the existing stomach, leaving a sleeve-like structure in place. This new structure significantly reduces the food that you can consume and reduces the production of the hunger hormone, ghrelin. Together, this leaves you feeling fuller for longer and facilitates weight loss.

With a gastric sleeve weight loss is measured over a two year period. Expectations for gastric sleeve patients are to lose around 70% of excess weight on average. With Allure you will receive dietetic and nurse care to help you achieve this. All procedures available with us are completed by a unique aftercare service.
