Reduce the size of your stomach and feel full

Find out from the specialists at Placentia-Linda Hospital’s Weight Loss Center whether sleeve gastrectomy is the right choice for you in your efforts to loss excess weight and get back to a healthier you.

About the procedure

Also called gastrectomy, the gastric sleeve procedure removes approximately 80 percent of the stomach, reducing it to the size of a thin vertical sleeve. Similar to other weight loss surgical procedures such as gastric bypass, the procedure can help you lose weight by restricting food intake so you feel full faster.

What are the benefits?

Sleeve gastrectomy affects the levels of hormones that impact hunger, your feelings of fullness and blood sugar control. Patients usually stay at the hospital for two days post-surgery. Combined with healthy eating and regular exercise, the gastric sleeve procedure can help you lose weight and improve your overall health.
