Sleeve gastrectomy, also called vertical sleeve gastrectomy, is a permanent weight loss method since it involves cutting a large part of the stomach and leaving behind only a banana-shaped sleeve.

Usually sleeve gastrectomy is performed using a laparoscope and only two to five incisions are made. Much of the stomach is cut away, leaving a banana shaped and sized sleeve behind. This allows for less food to be eaten with no hunger pangs, and the food moves through the stomach naturally, but in reduced quantity. This results in weight loss. The surgery can take between one and two hours and may be done under general anesthesia.
You will have to spend a few nights in hospital for close monitoring and intravenous fluids and medicines. Later you will be permitted oral intake of liquid foods and gradually soft foods at first. It will take several weeks before you will be able to eat normal foods and that too in restricted quantities. You will have to follow a diet regimen before and after your surgery to ensure that you are meeting your nutritional needs. You can expect to lose around 60 to 80 percent of the extra weight over a period of two years.
In the U.S. this surgery is quite expensive and you can expect to spend around US$16,730 (CAD22,556, £13,424, €15,390, AUD22,000, NZD23,268). You will pay much less than this price in Bali.
