Gastric Sleeve surgery is an operation which is performed by removing approximately 70%-80% of the existing stomach. Also known as Sleeve Gastrectomy, this closed surgery is performed under general anaesthesia by a surgeon, by entering the abdomen through a couple of areas. The excess part of the stomach is removed carefully by means of laparoscopic devices and the remaining stomach wall is cemented closed up when the excess is removed, thanks to the special devices.
Following the procedure, a leakage test is performed to make sure that the remaining stomach is fully free of any problem. Any problem in the stomach, if any, is detected and fixed during the operation
The devices are removed after the leakage test and the patient is wakened up. The secretion of hormone which enhances appetite (referred to as Ghrelin hormone) reduces following the procedure, since a large portion of the stomach is resected.
So, this is how you begin to lose weight without feeling hunger.
