What is a gastric sleeve operation ?
Gastric sleeve is a bariatric surgery (obesity surgery) which consists of acting on the stomach by drastically reducing its capacity and volume in order to reduce the quantity of food ingested and consequently reduce the feeling of hunger and the urge to eat.
Who are the best candidates for a gastric sleeve ?
Gastric sleeve, also called calibrated vertical gastroplasty with gastric resection, is intended for people with severe obesity and whose body mass index (BMI) exceeds 40.
It’s also intended for people whose BMI is between 30 and 40 but who have health problems such as diabetes or hypertension.
The sleeve is also prescribed for people with hyperphagia, an eating disorder that leads to the consumption of food in very large quantities.
Why do i need gastric sleeve operation ?
The sleeve gastrectomy, or longitudinal gastrectomy or partial gastrectomy by plication is a recent technique of restrictive bariatric surgery which consists of removing two-thirds of the stomach.
This removal of part of the stomach initially causes the patient to feel full.
Subsequently, the reduction in the volume of the stomach and its calibration causes the reduction of a large quantity of gastric cells which secrete a digestive hormone responsible for stimulating appetite called ghrelin.
How to prepare for gastric sleeve ?
Any and all cosmetic or medical procedures require some preparations that will be done with your doctor.
The surgeon begins by establishing a complete preoperative assessment containing an abdominal ultrasound, an esophagogastric fibrescope and a blood test.
During the first preoperative meeting and because of the general anesthesia, your surgeon in Tunisia or the anesthesiologist may have to request a cardiac assessment or a consultation with a cardiologist.
The doctor will also take a look at your medical history to see if you need to stop any of the medication that you are currently taking.
You will also need to meet with a dietitian so that they can help you establish the most suitable meal plan for you and also to inform you on how much food that needs to be consumed.
If you are a smoker or heavy drinker then you will need to quit for a month before the day of the operation.
What happens during the gastric sleeve operation ?
Lasting an average of two hours, the sleeve gastrectomy is performed by laparoscopy.
After placing a calibration probe orally, the surgeon inserts a video camera through tiny incisions to perform a vertical resection of more than two-thirds of the stomach.
Once the outer part of the stomach has been removed, the surgeon proceeds to staple the stomach tissues to alleviate bleeding problems.
What is the post-operative follow-up of a gastric sleeve operation ?
After the operation, it’s highly possible that you will need to spend at least one night at the clinic so that you can rest, the medical team will also keep an eye on your condition and make sure that you are well rested.
During the first period of your recovery, you may feel slight gastric refluxes and mild stomach pain; the doctor will be providing all the necessary medication for you.
An appointment with a nutritionist doctor will be essential to assimilate the right reflexes, the right eating methods and to establish a nutritional follow-up.
You will need to start with a liquid diet during the first period of your healing; this type of diet consist of:
