What are the benefits of Gastric Sleeve surgery?

Gastric sleeve surgery has become the most widely used bariatric procedure for good reason. It safely and effectively reduces appetite over time, making it far easier for patients to make the necessary dietary changes needed to achieve long-term weight loss.

Will I have excess skin after my procedure?

After losing a great amount of weight, it is not uncommon to be left with some excess skin. Each person is different in the quantity of excess tissue that remains. There are a number of extremely safe and effective plastic surgeries that can effectively deal with these issues.

How long does recovery from Gastric Sleeve take?

Most of our gastric sleeve patients go home the same day or the next morning and return to work within a week!
