What to expect from Gastric Sleeve Surgery?

In this procedure more than a half of your stomach is removed by the surgeon, leaving a new portion of your stomach as a sleeve. This will help you lose weight quicker by satisfying your appetite faster with a lesser amount of food.

How do I know if I am a good candidate for this procedure?

If you have a BMI of 30 units or more, you don’t eat too much sugar or sweets and you have a good health condition, you could be a possible candidate for this procedure.

Which is the length of the surgery?

This procedure usually takes about 2 hours to get it done.

Will I have to stay in the hospital?

Our patients stay at least 2 nights at the hospital to be under medical supervision and nursecare.

Then, our best recommendation is to stay for another night in a hotel near the hospital so we can make sure that there are no complications, so you can return home safely.

How much time will I have to wait to go back to work?

You will be able to go back to your normal activities and work within 1 week.

When would I see the final results of my gastric sleeve surgery?

Within 6 months, most of our patients can see a significant change by losing approximately half of their weight. For the procedure’s success it is essential to maintain a healthy lifestyle by eating properly, following the post-op indications and having an active life.
