How does this procedure work exactly? Essentially, Dr. Feiz first removes approximately three quarters of the stomach. Then he refashions the remaining portion into a sleeve-like shape resembling a banana. This new structure serves to better regulate the flow of food particles into the digestive track. As a result, the patient achieves a satiated feeling faster, allowing them to eat less in each sitting. That full feeling also lasts longer, allowing them to go longer between each meal.
