Sleeve Gastrectomy is the most commonly used surgical method among surgical methods for obesity surgery. It is a safe and highly effective surgical method for weight loss that allows patients with problems such as obesity to lose weight permanently. Sleeve Gastrectomy is a Laparoscopic Surgery: minimal incisions made in the upper abdomen remove about 80% of the stomach and the rest of the stomach takes the shape of a tube.
The average expected weight loss within one year after the intervention is from 40% to 70%.
