Sleeve gastrectomy is also known as vertical sleeve gastrectomy. This surgery is performed on an individual to lose unwanted weight. The surgery is very easy as it involves the only laparoscopy. Nearly 80% of the stomach is cleared away during the surgery. The size of the stomach is limited to that of the shape of a banana. A patient on whom the surgery is performed is restricted from the intake of more food than it is required for the body. The stomach is smaller in size, therefore, a large quantity of food won't fit in. Due to hormonal changes weight is lost.
Gastric Sleeve Surgery in Singapore is performed by expert medical professionals. Usually, people who are heavy weighted can face serious life-threatening diseases. To save them from such health conditions the weight is terminated from its very roots. If the surgery isn't performed then people who are obese can undergo high blood pressure, sleep apnea, heart diseases, cardiac arrest, high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes, and infertility. The surgery is performed on an individual only after he or she has tried losing weight by adopting a healthy lifestyle. If the weight doesn't decrease even after maintaining a healthy diet chart then doctors perform this surgery.
