The Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy (LSG) is a restrictive procedure which limits the amount of food you can eat by reducing the size of your stomach. It is the preferred operation for weight loss in several countries.

First small incisions are created on the abdomen to gain access to the abdominal cavity. Then trocars which serve as passage ways for the surgical instruments are placed into the incisions. Surgical instruments are passed through the trocars to access the abdominal cavity. The surgeon examines the abdomen using a laparoscope or a video camera. The average human stomach can expand to hold around 1 to 1,5 liters of food. During the sleeve gastrectomy, a thing vertical sleeve is created by using a stapling device and the rest is removed. The newly created sleeve is able to hold approximately 1/10 of what the stomach was able to hold before. The operation lasts around 1-2 hours and the patient stays around 10 days at the hospital. There are no postoperative adjustments necessary for the sleeve gastrectomy.

Individuals with BMI 30-35 kg/m2 may benefit from laparoscopic bariatric surgery.

Assessments are made by both the surgeon and nutritionist, and biochemical surveillance by complete blood count, chemical metabolic profile, and parathormone level is performed at intervals.
