Gastric Sleeve Surgery Results

Home » Weight Loss (Bariatric) Surgery » Gastric Sleeve Surgery Results

Gastric sleeve has become the most frequently performed weight loss surgery globally. In the USA, more than half of the bariatric procedures performed each year are gastric sleeves.

Although there are risks associated with any medical procedure, the risks of obesity are considered more significant than the risks of a sleeve surgery. In fact, gastric sleeve has a lower risk of complications than other surgeries, such as gallbladder removal.

Weight Loss after Gastric Sleeve Surgery

After sleeve surgery, most people experience:

  • Two+ pounds of weight loss per week, or eight to 10 pounds per month.
  • Sixty percent excess weight loss or more within two years of surgery.
  • Resolution of other medical conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure, infertility, sleep apnea, elevated cholesterol, type 2 diabetes, and stroke.

Gastric sleeve surgery offers the advantage of delivering gradual, well-paced weight loss. Hormonal changes from sleeve gastrectomy reduce hunger and have a profound effect on obesity-related conditions

Quality of Life after Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgery

We measure quality of life by the level of depression and anxiety, level of mobility, self-esteem, and degree of social interaction a person experiences. Sleeve surgery dramatically improves quality of life up to three years after surgery.

Sleeve surgery is associated with:

  • Reduced levels of fatigue and daytime sleepiness
  • Improved fertility and more favorable pregnancy outcomes
  • Improved blood sugar levels and improved ability to concentrate
  • Increased mobility
  • Improved self-esteem

If obesity affects you, it is especially possible to experience more happiness and better overall well-being after Gastric Sleeve surgery.
