Is Gastric Sleeve Surgery Right for You

Gastric sleeve may be an excellent option if you are overweight and have historically had difficulty maintaining a healthy BMI. But is Gastric Sleeve Surgery right for you?

To qualify for gastric sleeve at 360 Sleeve, you must be between the ages of 18 and 65, have a BMI of 30+, and be committed to a long-term aftercare program. Since gastric sleeve encompasses more than just physical changes, candidates need to also be psychologically ready for the many changes that occur post-op. Some patients report changes in relationships, self-perception, as well as perception by others.

Weight loss surgery like gastric sleeve has many misconceptions. If you meet the above criteria, another sign you are a good candidate is that you have realistic expectations about what bariatric surgery can do for you. Since it functions as a tool that helps to facilitate weight loss, candidates should have a good grasp on what the limitations of surgery are.

While gastric sleeve works by removing about 80% of the stomach and subsequently causes changes in appetite, satiety, and metabolism, it is important to remember that this procedure is a tool to treat chronic disease but cannot work on its own. If you are considering gastric sleeve, you should be aware that you will be responsible for maintaining a healthy diet and a good exercise routine post-op in order to sustain long-term results.
