Gastric sleeve surgery (sleeve gastrectomy) is one of the newer forms of bariatric surgery but has quickly been gaining popularity over the recent years. The gastric sleeve is a restrictive procedure meaning that it achieves weight loss results by restricting the amount of food that your body is physically able to take in.
What Type of Results Can I Expect?
Patients who undergo gastric sleeve surgery can expect remarkable results, which include the following:
- Drastic weight loss and decrease in body mass
- Improved health
- Higher energy levels
- Enhanced self-esteem
When Will I Notice Results?
Some results will be noticed right away, while others will be more prominent as time passes. Most patients continue to realize results for up to 24 months after undergoing surgery. Your exact results will depend on the following factors:
- The amount of weight you desire to lose
- Your commitment to a healthy diet and exercise program after having surgery
- Overall condition of your health
How Long Will Results Last?
Gastric sleeve surgery provides extremely long-lasting results. As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, you should continue to notice positive results for years to come. A good number of patients who undergo this surgery are able to meet their target weight and maintain it over an extended period of time, which is not always possible with ordinary diet and exercise.
As with any procedure, individual results do vary; however, just because you do not achieve the same results as someone else doesn’t mean your operation wasn’t successful. Gastric sleeve surgery provides amazing results for nearly every patient, making it a viable alternative to traditional weight loss methods.
