Gastric Sleeve Surgery

What does an actual sleeve gastrectomy surgery look like? A sleeve gastrectomy is performed laparoscopically, using multiple small incisions and instruments. During the procedure, a large portion of the stomach is divided vertically and removed. The remaining stomach – now reduced to about 25% of its original size – is shaped like a banana and resembles a tube or sleeve. This helps reduce the amount of food you can eat and reduce your appetite.
