GASTRIC SLEEVE

It's Possible With Tonic

WHAT IS A GASTRIC SLEEVE?

Gastric Sleeve surgery, is a really popular choice for you if you’re looking for excellent straightforward weight loss. This procedure doesn’t require so much maintenance and doesn’t have the long-term complication rates of a Lap Band.
It’s become so popular because evidence has showed significant weight loss with low complication rates, ideal for people with BMI’s over 45 as the surgery is much quicker resulting in less stress for the body.

Gastric Sleeve surgery has the benefits below:

  • May reduce hunger.

    a) The hunger inducing hormone ghrelin is reduced by removing a portion of the stomach largely responsible for its production.

    b) Reduction of hunger occurs in most patients but not all.

  • Shorter operating time compared to gastric bypass.

  • Does not re-route intestines.

  • No dumping syndrome.

    a) While dumping syndrome can be a tool to reinforce good eating habits, it’s very unpleasant.

    b) The pylorus remains intact and sugars have time to digest since the intestines remain untouched.

  • No adjustments are needed. The Lap Band requires regular adjustments (doctor visits). No foreign objects are left in the body. The Lap Band leaves a silicone band around the upper portion of your stomach.

  • Weight loss occurs over 18 months.

    a) Gastric Bypass weight loss is very quick. The majority of weight loss occurs in the first year.

    b) Lap Band is gradual and requires major lifestyle changes for success. The majority of weight loss occurs over 3 years.
