The use of a gastric sleeve may be a good option to take good care of your weight and your health.
There are many methods to lose weight, some of them are not effective at all, and others have shown some effectiveness. However, not all people achieve weight loss effectively, even with specialized treatments. For them, gastric sleeve surgery may very well be an option. This surgery is intended for all of those who have not been able to successfully lose weight with other methods.
It is important to clarify that gastric sleeve is only recommended for people with morbid or severe obesity, or for patients who suffer from a disease in which weight plays an important role, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or other cardiovascular diseases.
This surgery is also known as endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty, and is performed in the endoscopy unit. The process is carried out with a flexible tubular structure, with a camera, and an attached endoscopic suturing device. The endoscope is inserted down the throat into the stomach, and a camera allows the endoscopist to see and operate inside the stomach. These types of surgical endoscopic services are non-invasive; that is, precisely, one of the many benefits of the gastric sleeve. Another benefit is that recovery is very fast. The procedure lasts 2 hours, and once anesthesia wears off, you can go home.
Weight-related benefits have to do with stomach reduction. This reduction is final and enters a cycle: the stomach is small and cannot go back to its previous size, this means that the patient cannot go back to eating the same amounts of food that he used to eat before; thus, he/she feels satiated with small portions. (See more weight loss tips.)
In addition to this, the gastric sleeve leaves the digestive system intact, thus allowing the absorption of nutrients as before. This, together with, a well monitored and controlled diet, results in a more optimal health condition, in general, with less digestive issues and also adds to helping control obesity-related diseases.
The time to stop suffering because of your weight is now. Take good care of your health and consider gastric sleeve as a solution. Speak to your gastroenterologist and make the decision, as soon as possible to change your lifestyle.
