In addition, since the hormone (Gharelin) secretion that is secreted from the removed area of stomach and triggers off the decreases of hunger feeling , a feeling of satiety occurs with a small amount of food after the surgery. Weight control is achieved with a new diet and exercises after the surgery.
Gastric sleeve surgery offers patients who have had weight problems for years and have not reached the desired weight, the opportunity to get rid of the health problems, psychological problems and co-morbidities brought about by obesity and reach their goals. With the reduction process applied to the stomach, the amount of food eaten and appetite decrease. Although it varies from person to person, it is possible for patients to lose an average of 10 kilos per month and this figure can go even higher. Doctors expect the patient to loose 15-20 kilos in the first month. With the surgical intervention, most of the area where the hunger hormone is located in the stomach is removed, so patients feel less hungry. Accordingly, they start to lose weight rapidly and get rid of 70-80% of their excess weight in the first 2 years after the surgery. Thus, they spend the rest of their lives achieving their dreams and in a healthy way.
