Allure offers you a tried-and-proven Sleeve Gastrectomy surgical procedure that has made a difference to scores of men and women across the world. Today, they enjoy being trimmer and more energetic. Their health has improved, their outlook has changed for the better—and so has the quality of their lives.
With Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgery, you too can reinvent yourself.
Like Gastric Banding,Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgery is aimed at reducing the stomach’s capacity for food. However, there is one significant difference. In SGS, three-fourths of your stomach is surgically and permanently removed, leaving it in the shape and size of a large banana.
Not only is your stomach’s size reduced, butso is its ability to produce the hunger hormone, Ghrelin. You will feel hungry less often, and eat less than your usual amount because you get a feeling of fullness and satisfaction earlier than usual (owing to your having a smaller stomach).
Within two years, you can expect to lose 60% to 90% of excess body weight.Moreover, if you suffer from diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnoea, and knee joint pain, SGS can resolve these afflictions by 90-98% and significantly improve quality of life.
The procedure takes about 60 minutes. It requires one day of hospitalisation and 4 days of recuperation.
SGS has certain noteworthy advantages. There is no risk of malabsorption (as in the Roux en Y process) and no foreign body issues (as with the Gastric Band). Surgery is low-risk, compared with the RenY, and there is virtually no risk of needing another operation in the future, unlike the Laparoscopic Gastric Banding procedure.
In SGS, the Pyloric Valveis left intact. This valve serves as a natural band that regulates the flow of food from the stomach to the small intestine, so the digestive process isn’t hampered in any way.
For SGS, small incisionsare madearound the stomach region through which a laparoscope is passed in order offer visual support to the surgeon performing the operation. The stomach region is measured and about 75% of it stapled off and removed, thus reducing its food intake capacity to just 25%. A leak testis then done before the operation is completed and the patient is kept under observation for a day in the hospital before being released.
