How does gastric sleeve work?

Gastric sleeve (called vertical sleeve gastrectomy) is a restrictive weight loss surgery which reduces the stomach capacity by 70%-80% in order to enable a long term loss of weight and improve general health condition. Besides, the surgery permanently removes this part of the stomach which produces ghrelin (a hormone that stimulates hunger). The surgery is performed laparoscopically, which guarantees minimal invasion and cuts to the body. The surgery triggers an immediate and continuing weight loss.
