AM I A CANDIDATE FOR WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY?
To be eligible for a weight loss surgery one must reach the following criteria:
A sleeve Gastrectomy also known as gastro sleeve is the safest weight-loss operation. The Gastro sleeve is a weight loss surgery that removes about 75% of the stomach. This surgery is perfect for people who are extremely obese or ill as many other weight-loss surgeries may be too risky for them. However, a con is that people don’t lose as much weight with this surgery, but it is a great starting point for many. If needed, additional surgery can be done after the person has lost some weight with the Gastro sleeve. A big pro in the gastro sleeve is that it doesn’t affect the way your body digest food and therefore your body doesn’t fall short of its essential nutrients.
Since the gastro sleeve is a relatively new research development the long term risks are still being evaluated.
