What is Gastric Sleeve Surgery?

Gastric sleeve surgery, also known as sleeve gastrectomy, is a type of weight loss surgery that can provide dramatic weight loss results.

It’s a restrictive procedure where the capacity of your stomach is reduced by about 75% in order to aid substantial long-term weight loss. As a result, this should help your overall health improve.

It can be performed as a single procedure for weight loss, or it can be the first step before other weight loss surgical procedures, such as gastric bypass.

Gastric Band

Adjustable gastric banding / gastric band (sometimes known as a lap band) is a restrictive bariatric surgical procedure. A silicone band is placed around the upper part of the stomach, creating a small pouch above the band, that is about the size of a golf ball. This forms a large pouch below the band.

There are several variations of a Gastric Bypass. The most common procedure in the UK is the Roux-en-Y, also known as RYGB. It is a combination of restrictive and malabsorptive procedures, therefore has a two-way weight reducing effect. A small pouch is created by stapling off a section of the upper part of the stomach. Below the staple line the stomach will remain but no food will enter here.
