Gastric Sleeve

The gastric sleeve consists of reducing the stomach’s size to a 10%, transforming its shape from a football ball to a little banana. With this transformation the caloric intake diminishes allowing the patient to be satisfied with a minimum amount of food and remaining that way for a longer period of time and without feeling hungry. This is because of the reduction of ghrelin, the hormone related to appetite.
