Top 10 Reasons Why People Choose Sleeve Gastrectomy

It's never easy to decide on your health, but if you're considering undergoing bariatric surgery, then this blog post is for you.  Whether it be the Lap-Band or sleeve gastrectomy procedure, both are designed with your long-term weight loss goals in mind.


You may be asking yourself, what are the benefits of gastric sleeve surgery? If you're looking for some reasons why people choose sleeve gastrectomy as their surgical option of choice, here are the top 10 reasons to get the gastric sleeve!


1. Reduction in Type 2 Diabetes: Some patients even report complete remission of the illness.


2. Improvement of Sleep Apnea: Sleep Apnea is more likely to occur amongst overweight patients and can lead to serious health issues because it impacts the quality of sleep by interfering with breathing.


3. Easier Healing: Sleeve gastrectomy is a less invasive surgery than the traditional gastric bypass. With the sleeve, a portion of the stomach is removed but the small intestine does not need to be re-routed.


4. Less Time Off: Recovery time is relatively short compared to other procedures.


5. Feelings of Fullness: Patients who have had sleeve gastrectomy report feeling fuller on fewer calories after surgery. By consuming fewer calories comfortably, patients lose weight.


6. Boosted Metabolism: They also experience an increase in their metabolism, likely due to the changes in hormones facilitated by the surgery.


7. No Social Restrictions: People who have had sleeve gastrectomy can eat small amounts throughout the day instead of having one large meal at night like they used to do before surgery. Eating small amounts throughout the day allows the patients to still participate in the social aspects of meals.


8. It Works: With this procedure, patients can expect to lose 55-70% of their excess weight.


9. Food Satisfaction: There is no negative impact from dieting because the patient can eat a variety of foods and feel satisfied and full without overeating.


10. No Food Restrictions: The patient can still enjoy all of the foods they love, just in reduced portions! There are no prohibited foods; it’s all about portion control.
