Sleeve gastrectomy is one of the basic medical procedures used to lose weight:
Gastric sleeve process:
There are three types of quantization:
1- Partial gastrectomy: a small part of the stomach is removed, specifically from the lower side
2- Total quantization: by removing the entire stomach
3- Gagging the stomach from the left side only (excision of the left part)
Gastrectomy does not prevent you from continuing to be able to eat, but after the operation you need important life changes
It is also possible to perform this process as one of the procedures for treating obesity. Here, when the stomach size shrinks, its susceptibility to fullness becomes faster, and therefore the person eats less and his weight decreases.
Preparing for gastrectomy:
The doctor inspects the patient before performing the operation, and all necessary examinations and imaging are done to ensure that the patient is completely ready for the operation and it is necessary if the patient takes any medication to tell the doctor about this or if he has any chronic diseases as well.
Before the operation, the patient must stop smoking completely because smoking makes the recovery period after the operation longer.
How is the quantization process?
There are two ways to perform gastrectomy:
Ordinary surgery: Abdominal surgery with a full process by which the skin and tissues are displaced to reach the stomach and work to supplement it.
Endoscopic surgery: here, holes are opened through the abdomen and a special interface is inserted to carry out the quantization process. It is advised to do this type of procedure for you to avoid complications or effects after the operation.
