What is a gastric sleeve?

Gastric sleeve surgery in Dubai, also known as vertical sleeve gastrectomy, is a weight loss surgical procedure. During this procedure, around 80% of the stomach is removed and the remaining stomach forms a narrow tube called a sleeve. This way, by consuming less food, you will feel fuller when eating.

The sleeve gastrectomy procedure is available as part of our weight loss and bariatric programme, which includes an optional six-month post-operative support programme to ensure you have the best chance of achieving your weight loss goals.

WHY IS THE OPERATION PERFORMED?

Gastric sleeve surgery is generally performed to treat morbid obesity by limiting the amount of food you can eat. In general, this procedure is performed to reduce the risk of weight-related health problems, which can be life-threatening.

WHO IS THE OPERATION RECOMMENDED FOR?

Gastric sleeve surgery in Dubai is normally only recommended for morbidly obese people who have tried other weight loss methods without success. The following conditions are required in order to benefit from the procedure:

  • BMI 40 or over.
  • Serious health problems associated with obesity
  • No history of gastrointestinal disease.
  • Commitment to lifestyle changes.

BENEFITS AND POTENTIAL RESULTS

This procedure can be a very effective way of losing weight in the long term, depending on the extent to which you change your lifestyle habits. Sleeve gastrectomy can result in the loss of 20 to 40 kilos of excess weight in the first two years.

In addition, it can also improve or even reverse certain health problems associated with excess weight, including:

  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Hyperlipidaemia
  • Heart disease
  • Sleep apnoea
  • Osteoarticular diseases
  • Infertility

RISKS

As sleeve gastrectomy involves major surgery, there are some possible risks associated with this procedure.

Some of the risks associated with the surgical procedure itself are as follows:

  • Bleeding
  • Blood clots
  • Breathing problems
  • Gastrointestinal leaks

Long-term post-operative complications include:

  • Malnutrition
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Gastro-oesophageal reflux
  • Intestinal obstruction

BEFORE SURGERY

In order to be selected as a valid candidate for surgery, your doctor may require certain laboratory tests. You should also inform him/her of any medication you are taking regularly (anticoagulants, blood pressure medication or diabetes medication), as there will be restrictions on which ones you can take, as well as on what you can eat and drink before the operation.

DURING SURGERY

Sleeve gastrectomy is now generally performed using a minimally invasive laparoscopic technique. The procedure involves the following steps:

  • After making several small incisions in your abdomen, the surgeon will insert the laparoscopic instruments.
  • The doctor will cut your stomach vertically, removing and curving part of it to create a narrow sleeve.
  • This will allow you to feel full sooner at mealtimes.

You will sleep under general anaesthetic and be monitored closely to avoid any complications. The whole operation will take a few hours.

AFTER THE SURGERY

Immediately after the operation, you will not be allowed to eat or drink for about 8 hours. After that, your diet will consist of sugar-free liquids only for the next week, then you will gradually switch to pureed foods and finally to a normal diet about four weeks after the operation. You will probably stay in hospital for at least 2 to 4 days. Your doctor will recommend that you take certain vitamin and mineral supplements after the operation. You will need a vitamin B-12 injection once a month for life.
