Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Later, the study indicated that the hunger-generating hormone ghrelin was dramatically suppressed in gastric sleeve patients. It’s thought that the portion of the stomach excised after gastric sleeve surgery generates much of the hormone ghrelin. While gastric bypass patients noticed decreased hunger, it seemed to be more prominent in gastric sleeve patients.

Surgeons want you to be successful. Most surgeons care about getting you well. But they also know that you’re a prospective referral source. You are a potential success story.

Lap Band Surgery

If you’re considering weight reduction surgery then you should consider Lap-Band surgery. There are three typical weight loss treatments; Lap Band surgery, gastric bypass and gastric sleeve surgery. The approach and method of weight reduction are different for every treatment. However, the aim remains the same, to lose weight, minimize comorbidities, and live a better life. The amount of weight you may anticipate losing should not be the only consideration considered while choosing your operation.
