“Gastric sleeve” surgery means that about 80% of your stomach is removed. Because you can eat a lot less, but still feel full, you have a greater ability to lose weight. This surgery is not reversible.
It is possible for a person having Gastric Sleeve surgery to lose between 40% and 70% of their excess weight in the first 1-2 years after surgery. The extent of your weight loss will also depend on your commitment to the supporting eating and exercise plan. The long-term success of this surgery can also depend on adopting an eating plan that does not stretch the remaining section of stomach.
A personal consultation with Dr Ma will help you find out whether this is the right weight loss surgery for you.
