LAPAROSCOPIC SLEEVE SURGERY
Gastric Sleeve Surgery
Restrictive operations like gastric sleeve surgery make the stomach smaller and help people lose weight.
With a smaller stomach, you will feel full a lot quicker than you are used to. This means that you will need to make big lifelong changes in how you eat-including smaller portion sizes and different foods-in order to lose weight.
The Gastric Sleeve surgery in Dubai can be done by making a large incision in the abdomen (an open procedure) or by making several small incisions and using thin instruments and a camera to guide the surgery (laparoscopic approach), laparoscopic approach is better. More than half of your stomach is removed, leaving a thin vertical sleeve, or tube, that is about the size of a banana. Surgical staples keep your new stomach closed. Because part of your stomach has been removed, this is not reversible.
Sometimes this surgery is part of a larger approach to weight loss surgery done in several steps. If you need to lose a lot of weight before you have duodenal switch surgery, gastric sleeve surgery may be the first stage operation.
