Sleeve gastrectomy is a procedure which effectively shrinks the stomach by removing approximately 85% of it and stapling off the remaining small portion, which is fashioned into the shape of a small banana, or sleeve. This smaller stomach not only means patients' have a smaller capacity for food when they eat, they also have a diminished appetite so they can only consume very small portions of food at a time. Patients also have less desire to eat, particularly to overeat, so they lose weight gradually with the gastric sleeve procedure (another term for sleeve gastrectomy).
