What is sleeve gastrectomy?
Sleeve gastrectomy is a surgical procedure that removes about 85% of stomach volume. The remaining part of the stomach is made into a sleeve connected to the oesophagus, limiting the size of portions you can eat. The reduction of appetite and food intake will help you lose a great deal of weight. To be effective, the procedure also requires a change of lifestyle, eating habits and exercise.
Get your weight and diabetes under control
Sleeve gastrectomy reduces production of ghrelin, often called the hunger hormone, as production takes place mainly in the part of the stomach removed in the surgery. This helps you get accustomed to new eating habits with much smaller portion sizes. The procedure can provide a number of other benefits, however. It can change the level of hormones produced in the small intestines (incretins), which can improve or eliminate type 2 diabetes if brought to acceptable levels.

What to expect
Before the treatment
For two weeks before the treatment avoid aspirin and other blood thinners. Minimise alcohol consumption and smoking for a few days before the procedure. Ideally you should stop smoking completely.
During the treatment
Sleeve gastrectomy takes place under full anaesthesia. It requires a four to five-day stay at the clinic. The anaesthesiologist remains present during the entire operation. You can take a sedative before the procedure begins, if you wish.
You will be on a liquid diet for the first two weeks, then a mixed diet for the next two weeks. After a month you can eat regular food again, provided that it is healthy and balanced. The amount of food you can eat will be much smaller than before the operation. Most importantly, you will need to keep to a weight-loss diet that is low in fat and high in protein and vitamins. You will also need to drink at least one to one and a half litres of water per day.
Instalments that won’t stand in your way
Are you ready to have sleeve gastrectomy, but don’t feel you can afford it now? We allow payment in instalments, so you can schedule your appointment now and pay later. We also arrange partial financing on request. Get in touch and we’ll be glad to go over all options with you.
The risk of complications arising during or after the procedure is very low. Choosing the right surgeon with our help is the best thing you can do to get excellent results. Still, no surgeon in the world can guarantee no complications will ever occur. Taking out insurance on an operation is a logical step, and more and more patients today are choosing to insure their aesthetic operation. We will be glad to help you with that as well. Just say the word.
