Overview of Gastric Sleeve Surgery
- If performed laparoscopically, only small incisions need to be made for gastric sleeve surgery.
- After the incisions are made, the bariatric surgeon removes around 85% of the stomach.
- The removal of a major part of the stomach renders it a sleeve or tube-like shape.
- Once the surgery is complete, the reduced size of the stomach allows you to feel fuller quickly, even after a small meal.
- The procedure is also known as sleeve gastrectomy, vertical sleeve gastrectomy, VSG, gastric sleeve resection, greater curvature gastrectomy, and parietal gastrectomy.
Your weight loss journey should begin even before you’ve had surgery. This primarily involves losing weight so as to reduce fat around your stomach and the size of your liver. This will make your procedure less risky.
Things to take care of:
- You will have to eliminate foods rich in fat and sugar.
- You will be put on a liquid diet for about 2 weeks before your surgery.
- Consume enough water to keep your kidneys flushed.
- Stop taking any herbal medicines at least one week prior to your surgery.
- Start consuming protein drinks at least 2 weeks prior to your surgery.
- Make sure you quit smoking at least a month before your surgery to speed up postoperative recovery.
- Start a mild workout regime.
- In phase 1 of the gastric sleeve diet, you will be put on clear liquids comprising protein drinks, water, and decaffeinated coffee and green tea for one to two weeks after your surgery.
- After the culmination of phase 1 of the diet, you will be able to transition to low-fat milk, cheese, yogurt and soups.
- In the third phase of the diet you will be able to consume soft foods such as bananas, cooked vegetables, and baked boneless fish.
- Make sure that you eat slowly and chew your food well.
- Do not drink anything while eating; keep a gap of 45 minutes between your meals and your drinks.
