Gastric Sleeve

Sleeve gastrectomy is a surgical weight-loss procedure that involves removal of a large part of the stomach. With a smaller stomach, you will feel less hungry and feel full sooner because your smaller stomach will produce lower levels of a hormone called ghrelin, which causes hunger.

Statistically, expect to lose at least 60% of your excess body fat. Better results are obtained with good adherence to healthy lifestyle and behavioral guidelines.
