The gastric sleeve procedure is one the most popular bariatric surgeries among patients with significant overweight (BMI of at least 50).
This obesity treatment is performed today frequently and the gastric sleeve price in Spain is now cheaper than in other European countries.
Gastric sleeve price, bariatric surgery in Spain :
During the gastric sleeve procedure the original width of the stomach is reduced by 2 to 3 cm to convert it into a tube like structure. This bariatric procedure is a restrictive bariatric surgery meant to reduce the size of the stomach and thus the food intake.
By removing these two thirds of the outer part of the stomach, the cells segregating the stimulation of hunger hormones lodged in the area are also removed.
During the surgery, the stomach is turned into a vertical sleeve shaped structure where food quickly passes through towards the bowels.
After the surgery, the food digestion process is normal though slower due to the resulting reduced capacity of the stomach.
The gastric sleeve treatment actually operates in two different directions: it is a stomach reduction procedure which also slows down the hormone levels creating patients’ craving for food and their consequent food intake interest.
Weight can be cut down by 25 to 35kg with these techniques. The laparoscopic surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia and inpatient stay lasts about 24 hours.
