What are the Benefits of a Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgery?
The field of bariatric surgery has advanced by leaps and bounds over the past decades. Today, minimally invasive techniques take the place of many of the operations that once required extended hospital stays and longer recovery times. With obesity and its associated ailments on the rise, more individuals have begun taking an interest in surgeries that can contribute to weight loss and provide a basis for healthier, more normalised eating habits. A sleeve gastrectomy surgeryis one such choice. What advantages does it offer?
This method dramatically reduces hunger-causing hormones, leading to more control over food cravings. Weight loss is not as fast as some other methods, but still occurs at a rapid pace — however, individual results will vary. The sleeve gastrectomy can also be the planned first stage of a loop – duodenal switch procedure which can follow some month or years after a sleeve and achieve subsequent weight loss.
