What is One Incision Sleeve Surgery?
- Gastric sleeve surgery entails reduction of capacity of the stomach.
- This is achieved by reducing the stomach to nearly a fourth of its original size.
- The reduced stomach resembles a tube or a sleeve, which gives the procedure its name.
- Gastric sleeve surgery is also known as sleeve gastrectomy, vertical sleeve gastrectomy, VSG, gastric resection, parietal gastrectomy and greater curvature gastrectomy.
- Single incision sleeve surgery is an ultra minimally invasive procedure which involves making only one incision in the navel.
- As a result, there are practically no scars left behind and the results are highly aesthetic.
Preparing for Your Surgery
- Do not consume starches, fast and fried foods.
- Do not snack between meals.
- Eliminate drinking caffeinated, sweetened and carbonated drinks.
- Make sure to eat your food slowly and chew it properly.
- Consume more and more veggies and fruits.
- Get active – make it a point to exercise at least 20 minutes, 3 times a week.
- Take protein meal replacement shakes two weeks before your surgery primarily to help lose some weight and reduce the size of your liver.
- Stop smoking – kick the butt at least one month prior to your surgery.
- You will be asked to discontinue certain medications 5-10 days before your surgery.
Gastric Sleeve Diet
You will be put on a gastric sleeve diet compatible with your new reduced stomach and your weight loss plan. Here’s a brief overview of the postoperative diet plan:
- This is the liquid diet phase.
- It is to be followed immediately after the surgery and lasts for about 2 days.
- Patients are allowed to take only sugar-free gelatin, broth and water.
- This phase of the diet has to be followed for about 15 to 21 days after the surgery.
- Soft vegetables, lean meats and fruits in pureed forms are permitted in this phase of the diet.
You can have semi-solid, mashed foods for subsequent four weeks. You can consume low-fat cottage cheese, mashed fruits and veggies, and pressure cooked meats.
- Four weeks after your surgery, your stomach will be able to handle solid foods.
- Make sure you avoid the following:
- Fibrous vegetables such as cabbage and cauliflower
- Tough meats
- Starchy foods such as pastas, breads, and white rice
- Foods high in carbs (potatoes) and saturated fats
- Eliminate carbonated drinks and alcohol.
- Avoid greasy foods and whole milk.
- Chew your food well.
