The premier team of surgeons at Central California Surgery employ their expertise in bariatric surgery to offer weight loss services to those in need. With practices in both Modesto and Stockton, California, these qualified doctors have extensive experience in gastric sleeve surgery. With a reputation for successful weight loss and low rates of complications, this type of bariatric surgery is a popular choice for those who wish to overcome the health problems associated with morbid obesity.
Gastric sleeve surgery, like other weight loss surgery, is reserved for those living with morbid obesity. This procedure reduces the risk for detrimental health problems that often arise in individuals living with obesity. It typically requires two procedures in an effort to reduce the risk of complications. The first stage aims to reduce the size of the stomach, and the second procedure usually occurs about a year later once the patient has lost some weight. The later stage involves bypassing parts of the digestive system to reduce absorption of calories.
Patients opt for gastric sleeve surgery because it offers many benefits to overall health and wellness. These potential advantages include:
Most patients are expected to lose about 60% of their excess weight (different from your total weight). Implementing daily exercise can help the patient exceed the 60% mark, while reverting back to poor eating habits can thwart the 60% loss of excess weight.
Maintaining healthy habits post-surgery is critical to keep the weight off. Following this life-changing procedure, it takes arduous effort to maintain a healthy diet, routine exercise, and a positive mindset to motivate you.
Recovery varies among patients. Some are able to leave on the same day, while others may spend a day or two recovering in the hospital. The doctor may review expectations and recommendations that follow your discharge:
