While more people than ever are familiar with gastric sleeve surgery today, many people still aren’t sure what the surgery is. Simply put, gastric sleeve surgery, also known to some as vertical sleeve gastrectomy, is a surgery wherein approximately 75% to 85% of the stomach is removed, with the remaining part reformed into a shape similar to that of a banana, or sleeve.
With their newly molded stomach, patients will feel satiated faster, and for longer periods of time. This enables them to eat less during each sitting, usually enjoying immediate weight loss. Unlike many weight loss solutions, with sleeve gastrectomy, patients don’t simply eat less, but they also feel full faster, leaving them with more energy and often leading to a healthier, happier lifestyle.
One of the reasons Dr. Feiz is so frequently sought out to perform bariatric surgery sleeve surgery is his qualification to use the STARR Treatment, enabling him to perform the procedure with only a single incision. This allows for faster recovery marked by less discomfort among many patients, and virtually no residual scarring.
