How Gastric Sleeve Surgery Works

The surgery is laparoscopic in nature by making three to five tiny incisions on the abdomen of the patient. These are used to insert the surgical instruments to complete the procedure. The surgeon will create a small stomach by stapling the larger stomach down to a size that is approximately 80–85% smaller than the original. To guide the stomach cutter/staple, a bougie is used to outline the correct stomach size.

Gastric sleeve procedures take about 30 to 45 minutes to complete. The new, sleeve-shaped stomach reduces hunger hormones (ghrelin) and hunger will be reduced significantly.

When the surgeon makes your pouch, an instrument called a “bougie” is inserted down your esophagus to your stomach as a guide. Depending on the person, it may mean that your pouch is a little longer or shorter. Your smaller stomach only hold about 4 ounces of food, making portions significantly smaller than before surgery.
