Gastric Sleeve Surgery
Gastric sleeve surgery (sleeve gastrectomy) is a very effective method in the fight against obesity. This process works by reducing the stomach volume and removing the hormone ghrelin, which causes an increase in appetite. As the stomach volume gets smaller, the person is sated with smaller portions and as the person’s appetite decreases, the person becomes a healthier individual by losing weight in a short time without suffering.
Gastric sleeve surgery is performed with a closed method, that is without making large incisions in the abdominal region. The closed method allows the person to stand up and walk shortly after the surgery and perform daily activities by oneself. The operation takes about an hour. The leak test is performed on the second postoperative day. If no problems are detected in this test, the patient will be discharged on the same day with a diet list prepared by the dietitian.
