Gastric sleeve surgery, also known as stomach reduction surgery, is one of the most commonly performed surgical interventions today. In gastric sleeve surgery, the stomach is transformed into a banana-shaped longitudinal tube. With the laparoscopic method, that is, the closed surgery technique, approximately 80 percent of the stomach is cut and removed. In this way, stomach food intake is restricted. In addition, sleeve gastrectomy surgery has the effect of reducing food absorption, although at a low level. People who have undergone gastric sleeve surgery have a reduced appetite and insulin resistance decreases, even if weight loss has not yet occurred.

How is Gastric Sleeve Surgery Performed?

Gastric sleeve surgery is one of the most preferred surgical treatment methods for obesity. This method reduces the stomach volume and limits the amount of food and calorie intake that a person can consume at a time. In this procedure, also known as Sleeve Gastrectomy, approximately 85% of the stomach is cut and removed along the stapler line, starting from the lower part called the antrum and ending in the proximal sensation area, and the stomach capacity is reduced to a maximum of 100 ml. When the new shape of the stomach resembles a tube, this method is called gastric sleeve surgery.

Gastric sleeve surgery is performed laparoscopically, that is, by entering through a small incision in the abdominal wall. Since it does not require open surgery, it shortens the patient’s recovery time and reduces the risk of infection, which is a great advantage for patients.

How Many Hours Does Gastric Sleeve Surgery Take?

Gastric bypass surgery, also known as gastric sleeve surgery, is a surgical procedure used in the treatment of obesity. This surgery aims to promote weight loss by reducing the volume of the stomach and disabling part of the intestines.

Gastric sleeve surgery is usually performed in an operation that takes approximately 1.5 hours. In this method, the stomach exit and entrance area is preserved and continuity in the digestive system is maintained. Therefore, the risks after sleeve gastrectomy surgery are low and unwanted side effects are reported quite rarely.

Who is Suitable for Gastric Sleeve Surgery (Sleeve Gastrectomy)?

Procedures for sleeve gastrectomy surgery generally include the procedures required for bariatric surgery practices. To be a candidate for bariatric surgery, certain criteria must be met:

  • Having a Body Mass Index (BMI) value of 40 kg/m2 or above (morbid obesity) or having a BMI value of 35 and above and having at least one obesity-related complication (e.g. serious musculoskeletal problems such as diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea, arthritis). problems).
  • Failure of non-surgical weight loss attempts.
  • There is no medical contraindication for surgery.

Is Gastric Sleeve Surgery Risky?

Although gastric sleeve surgery is generally a mild-to-moderate risky operation, the majority of patients do not experience additional problems. The complication rate is around 2%. Since closed surgery technique is used, patients can stand up on the same day. Generally, 3-4 days of hospitalization is sufficient and normal daily life can be returned within a few weeks.

Follow-up results after sleeve gastrectomy surgery are quite successful. Patients begin to lose weight after the surgery and experience significant weight loss within a few months. Data obtained as a result of long-term medical follow-up shows that patients who have sleeve gastrectomy surgery lose 70-80% of their excess weight.
