The gastric sleeve is a popular option for patients with a BMI of 35 and that have been struggling with weight loss for some time, even whilst maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The procedure itself revolves around removing a large portion of the stomach, up to 80%, in order to restrict the amount of food that you are able to consume at any one time. This surgery also removes the part of the stomach that produces the most amount of ghrelin, effectively suppressing the production of the hunger hormone significantly, leading to a decrease in appetite. When it comes to recovery, patients can differ slightly, however it is generally understood that individuals will require 1 – 2 weeks off of work (at least) will a full recovery expected between 6 and 8 weeks post-op. The gastric sleeve is widely considered one of the most popular bariatric surgeries available.
When it comes to aftercare, Allure Weightloss provides patients with a HCPC registered Dietitian and Bariatric Nurse in order to ensure your recovery goes according to plan. Patients should understand that electing for gastric sleeve surgery should not be considered lightly, especially as major lifestyle changes are necessary in order to ensure a proper and healthy recovery. For example, changes to what, how much, and how you eat will have to be made.
