Weight loss with “stomach sleeve” method
How was the gastric sleeve method discovered?
Initially, gastric sleeve surgery was the first step in duodenal surgery. Prior to the second phase of the surgery, DS surgeons observed significant weight loss and improved health in their patients, which led them to experimentally perform gastric sleeve surgery as the primary surgery.
The difference between gastric sleeve and gastric bypass
During the bypass operation, the upper part of your stomach is turned into a small bag by the surgeon and the food enters the middle part of the small intestine directly without passing through the stomach area. But as mentioned, in sleeve surgery, 3/4 of the stomach tissue is removed and the stomach becomes a relatively narrow tube. People who are overweight are suitable for sleeve surgery.

Comparison of gastric sleeve surgery with other weight loss methods
One of the best ways to lose weight and increase health
One of the 3 available methods is to make the patient feel less hungry
Less risk compared to other methods leading to high weight loss;
One of 3 ways that is not reversible.
Gastric sleeve surgery has been the most popular weight loss surgery to date. This procedure is now performed in more than 60% of all weight loss surgeries in the United States. While in 2011 this figure was 24%. During this period:
Gastric bypass has been reduced from 62% to 37%.
Adjustable gastric banding (for example, LAP-BAND) decreased from 7.5% to 0.8%.
Of course, newer methods such as gastric balloon (a device that empties the stomach) have gained more popularity, but their popularity is not as great as gastric sleeve surgery.
Is the irreversibility of gastric sleeve a bad trait?
The fact that gastric sleeve (or vertical sleeve gastrectomy) is not reversible may not be a bad feature. For example, nausea, diarrhea, or vomiting are short-term problems. About one in five patients with gastric sleeve will develop gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), which improves over time and the GERD rate drops to about 3% after 3 years.
