In some cases, patients can reduce their weight by more than half in as little as four to six months.*
During gastric sleeve surgery, the size of your stomach is reduced so you feel fuller quicker and experience less hunger.
A Safe Option
This technique carries a lower chance of complications than other weight loss treatments.
Gastric sleeve surgery (also called a sleeve gastrectomy) involves reducing the size of the stomach to about 15 percent of its original size. When your stomach is smaller, you will feel full after eating less food, and your body will absorb fewer calories. This leads to a healthy rate of dramatic weight loss.
The gastric sleeve procedure is a safe and effective weight loss surgery. In fact, a five-year study conducted by the World Journal of Gastrointestinal Surgery found that 98 percent of gastric sleeve recipients showed effective results and zero complications.
Sleeve gastrectomies are performed laparoscopically, so there is minimal scarring. During the surgery, the bariatric surgeon will remove stomach tissue and staple the remaining tissue shut so that it forms the shape of a tube, or “sleeve.”

Gastric Sleeve Recovery
After gastric sleeve surgery, you will need to remain in the hospital in Jacksonville Fl, for 1 day so that you have medical staff on hand to monitor and assist you as needed. Additionally, you will need to undergo some post-operative testing before you are discharged. Your diet will be limited to liquids for the first two weeks but will gradually integrate soft foods, then solids. However, it is important to remember to only eat the small quantities of foods recommended by your doctor.
The first few weeks should be focused on resting, but you will need to walk around to discourage blood clots. After about a month, increasing your activity level will likely be approved. Over the next few months, you will gradually increase your exercise routine. Depending on the type of work you do, you may be able to return to work after a week or two. However, some patients require up to four to six weeks off.
