In each of these gastric procedures, the patient feels full faster as a significant potion of the stomach is removed or restricted from use as a result of the procedure.
Suppression
Appetite
Suppression
Also common to the Gastric Sleeve and the Gastric Bypass is the absence of the "hunger hormone" which blunts the appetite significantly.
Recovery
Laparoscopic =
Faster Recovery
Laparoscopic surgery is a minimally invasive technique where a video camera and surgical instruments are inserted through small abdominal incisions. Compared to open surgery, benefits may include a marked decrease in appetite.
Diabetes
Type II Diabetes
Cure
Evidence shows that the Gastric Sleeve cures 90% of Type II diabetes patients and Gastric Bypass cures 95% of patients in the first 12 months. These are just two of the many life-changing, life-extending statistics of losing weight.
