What is Sleeve Gastrectomy & how it is applied?

Sleeve gastrectomy is a surgery method performed by removing approximately 75-80% of the entire stomach. Since most of the stomach is surgically removed, the amount of food consumed is limited. In sleeve gastrectomy surgery, since the fundus region of the stomach, where ghrelin is produced, is removed, appetite decreases and weight loss occurs.

Sleeve gastrectomy is performed with a closed method called laparoscopic. It is made of 6 small holes of about half a centimeter. With this laparoscopic surgery method, patients have extremely low postoperative pain, a good cosmetic result and early mobilization.

With sleeve gastrectomy, the stomach is cut with disposable special tools and sewn on at the same time. The thinness of the stomach remaining during the procedure is provided by a tube placed in the stomach.

After the cutting process, approximately 75-80% of the stomach is removed. Since the stomach left after the procedure resembles a tube in the shape of a banana, the technique is often called tube stomach.

In order to detect a possible leak from the suture line, the stomach is inflated with a special dye and the suture line is checked.

The primary effect of sleeve gastrectomy is to provide early satiety by taking less food with a small stomach volume. Since a thin stomach remains after the sleeve gastrectomy surgery, a small amount of food causes tension in the stomach wall and a feeling of satiety occurs.


Also since the fundus of the stomach is almost completely removed after this surgery, the hunger hormone level decreases and the feeling of hunger is suppressed. About all patients say that they eat very little after the surgery, and they do not feel hungry.

Typical sleeve gastrectomy surgery generally takes about between 45 to 90 minutes. Oral fluid intake is started after the gastric passage X-ray taken on the next day of the surgery. Fluid intake increases on the 3rd day and the patient is usually discharged on the 3rd day.

Getting liquid foods continues for about 14 days, and than there becomes a gradual transition to soft foods. At the of one month, patients can eat all kind of food. It is advised to spend this period under under the control of a dietitian.

The expected weight loss after the surgery is about 70% of excess weight. While weight loss is fast in the first 6 months, it continues more slowly afterwards. Permanent weight loss after sleeve gastrectomy is around 75-80%.
