How do Gastric sleeves work?
During gastric sleeve surgery, the bariatric surgeon removes approximately 60 to 80% of the stomach along the greater curvature, leaving only a small tube, or "sleeve" for the new stomach pouch, turning remaining 20 to 40% portion of the stomach into a banana shaped structure. Having such a large portion of the stomach removed, anyone who undergoes a gastric sleeve surgery will have diminished appetite, causing a drop in weight.
