If you are wondering to consider bariatric surgery as the last resort, chances are, you have already tried everything else. At Houston Weight Loss, our doctors think that a gastric sleeve is a good option for such patients. By removing around 85% of the stomach, this is one of the most effective ways to reduce hunger and eliminating hunger hormones.
Below is the list for you to see whether you are a good candidate for gastric sleeve or not:
Your BMI must be at least 40.
- Health Issues:
You have serious health issues such as hypertension, cardiovascular diseases, Type 2 Diabetes, infertility or sleep disorder.
- Obesity Check:
You are too obese for a gastric bypass surgery.
- Nutrition And Health:
You are worried about your nutrition and intestinal health.
- No Restoration Or Revision:
You are mentally prepared for a permanent solution as if 85% of your stomach is removed, it can’t be restored.
- Full Preparation:
You are fully ready for the surgery both mentally and physically.
Talking To The Experts
Although you can use these determinants to go for a gastric sleeve, you’ll still have to talk to a certified surgeon. Only weight loss experts can evaluate whether you are eligible for a surgery or not. Without consulting them, you can’t just make a decision on your own. It is important to understand that a bariatric consultancy is mandatory for every patient who’s looking forward to a weight loss surgery.
