Sleeve Gastrectomy (Gastric Sleeve Surgery) is a surgical procedure that reduces the size of the stomach and limits the amount of food consumed, thus helping to lose weight.Gastric sleeve surgery is performed to help reduce the risk of health problems such as heart disease, high blood pressure, cholesterol, and diabetes associated with excess weight. Gastric sleeve surgery is usually performed after trying to lose weight with methods such as diet and exercise.
Various laboratory tests and examinations are performed to determine whether sleeve gastrectomy surgery is appropriate. Before the surgery, your doctor will have recommendations about your nutrition habbits and drug use.
Gastric sleeve surgery is performed under general anesthesia by making small incisions in the abdomen. Approximately 75-80% of the stomach is removed and as a result, the stomach takes the form of a long tube. The surgery takes about 2 hours.
Patients are usually discharged 2-3 days after sleeve gastrectomy surgery. After gastric sleeve surgery, the diet starts with sugar-free liquids. Generally, after 4 weeks, patients can start exercising and an appropriate exercise program is recommended.
As a result, with surgery, it is possible to lose about 60% or more of your excess weight within two years, depending on your lifestyle.

After gastric sleeve surgery, the feeling of hunger decreases due to hormonal changes. Leptin and ghrelin are known as hunger hormones. It is known that leptin production increases and ghrelin levels decrease after gastric sleeve surgery, so hunger can be suppressed for a long time.
