Bariatric surgeon: When weight loss surgery is discussed, a weight loss surgery center should be consulted as well as the health plan. Weight loss is a coordinated effort that involves dietary counseling, attempt to intentionally loose weight, and then bariatric surgery, plus follow up to help with maintaining the life style changes that are required to prevent gaining weight again.
What are the effects of a gastric sleeve 5, 10, 20 years post-op? Will the sleeve still be intact, working order? How much can/will it stretch? Regain?
Sleeve gastrectomy: No one knows for certain what the outcomes of vertical sleeve gastrectomy will be at more than 5 years. We know that patients having similar gastrectomies tolerate it well. It may stretch some over time but it does not stretch a great deal. Its success depends on your dietary compliance.
Depends on you: Sleeve gastrectomy is a physiologic restrictive operation. The average weight loss is about 70% of the excess weight. However, it depends on the patient and his/her initial weight before surgery. Nothing say that you cant lose all your excess weight if you follow the instruction of the diet and exercise. I have several patients who lost more than 100 lbs. In the first 6 month after the surgery.
Sleeve surgery: Is safe and effective. It works through several hormonal pathways and not just restriction (e.g. Ghrelin, glp-1, pyy, etc). These honors take hunger away. Lifestyle changes are required for all bariatric surgeries. When all goes away, patients lose 60-75 lbs, for every 100 lbs they are over weight.See 1 more doctor answer
Gastric sleeve surg: Gastric sleeve surgery is successful in helping patients loose weight. Depending on your diet, exercise regime, most patients lose about 60-70% of their excess weight.

It does not: Gastric sleeve is surgical weight loss procedure in which a major portion of the stomach is removed along the lesser curve of the stomach. This leave a banana shaped stomach. Unlike gastric banding where a band is applied along the top of the stomach, the gastric sleeve is not associated with slippage. I hope my answer is well descriptive.See 2 more doctor answers
Sleeve gastrectomy: The sleeve gastrectomy is very effective and has a high success rate. Patients typically lose about 60-65% of their excess body weight by a year to year and a half. That means if you are 100lbs overweight, you would lose 60-65 lbs. If you are 200 lbs overweight, you would lose 120-130 lbs. This doesn't mean you lose the weight automatically. You have to eat the right foods and exercise as well.See 2 more doctor answers
Common result: This result should have been discussed with you prior to the surgery, as food intolerances are not uncommon after this type of surgery. Speak with the surgeon and a dietician well versed in post-bariatric surgery diets to find out what type of foods are best and worst for you, and how to best lose your weight without being miserable every time you eat. You can finds foods that you can tolerate.
Ask your surgeon...: ... who should be the "best" one to give you the answer to this Q since s/he knows more about why & how your gastric sleeve was done than anyone sporadically online. But, generally, may apply common sense and listen to what your stomach & body may tell you so to adjust what you can adopt and adapt to new post-surgical "setup" of gastrointestinal tract.
Can be: This is one of several recognized bariatric procedures for weight loss. You will want to discuss with your surgeon his or her experience with this procedure vs others, such as gastric bypass, lap-band, etc. You should ask how many of these surgeries they have done and their success and complications rates. For the right patient, gastric sleeve can be a good option.See 1 more doctor answer
