Sleeve gastrectomy, also called a vertical sleeve gastrectomy, is a surgical weight-loss procedure. 
This procedure is typically performed laparoscopically, which involves inserting small instruments through multiple small incisions in the upper abdomen. During sleeve gastrectomy, approximately 80% of the stomach is removed, leaving a tube shaped stomach about the size and shape of a banana.

Why it's done ​

Sleeve gastrectomy is performed to help you lose excess weight and reduce your risk of potentially life threatening weight related health problems, including:​

  • High blood pressure
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • High cholesterol
  • Stroke
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Infertility
  • Cancer
  • Heart disease

Sleeve gastrectomy is done after you’ve forced to lose weight by following your diet and exercise habits. In general, sleeve gastrectomy surgery might be a good option for you if: 

  • Your body mass index is 40 or higher (extreme obesity).
  • Your BMI is 35 to 40 (obesity), and you have a serious weight related health problem, such as severe sleep apnea, type 2 diabetes or high blood pressure. In some situations, you may qualify for certain types of weight loss surgery if your BMI is 30 to 35 and you have serious weight related health problems. ​

You must also be willing to make permanent changes to lead a healthier lifestyle. You may be required to participate in long term follow up plans that include your lifestyle, monitoring your nutrition, behavior, and your medical conditions.


As with many major surgery, sleeve gastrectomy poses potential health risks, both in the short term and long term. Risks associated with sleeve gastrectomy can include:​ 

  • Infection
  • Excessive bleeding
  • Lung or breathing problems
  • Adverse reactions to anesthesia
  • Leaks from the cut edge of the stomach
  • Blood clots

Long term risks and complications of sleeve gastrectomy surgery may include: 

  • Malnutrition
  • Gastrointestinal obstruction
  • Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)
  • Gastroesophageal reflux
  • Vomiting
  • Hernias

Rarely, complications of sleeve gastrectomy can be fatal.

How you prepare

In the weeks prapearing your surgery, you may be required to start a physical activity and to give up any tobacco use. Before your procedure, you may have restrictions on eating and drinking and which medications you can take. From now on is a good time to plan for your recovery after surgery. 

What you can expect

Sleeve gastrectomy is done in the hospital. Depending on your recovery, your hospital stay may last one to three nights.

During the procedure

The specifics of your surgery depend on your individual situation and the hospital’s or doctor’s practices. Some sleeve gastrectomies are done with traditional large (open) incisions in the abdomen. But sleeve gastrectomy is typically performed laparoscopically, which involves inserting small instruments through multiple small incisions in the upper abdomen. 
You are given general anesthesia before your surgery begins. Anesthesia is medicine that keeps you asleep and comfortable during surgery. To perform a sleeve gastrectomy, the surgeon creates a narrow sleeve by stapling the stomach vertically and removing the larger, curved part of the stomach. Surgery usually takes one to two hours. After surgery, you awaken in a recovery room, where medical staff monitors you for any complications.

After the procedure

After sleeve gastrectomy, your diet starts with sugar free, noncarbonated liquids for the first seven days, then progresses to pureed foods for three weeks, and finally to regular foods approximately four weeks after your surgery. You will be required to take a calcium supplement once a day, a multivitamin twice a day, and a vitamin B-12 injection once a month for healthy life.

You’ll have often medical checkups to follow your health in the first several months after weight loss surgery.

You may need laboratory testing, bloodwork and various exams. You may experience changes as your body reacts to the rapid weight loss in the first three to six months after sleeve gastrectomy,including: 

  • Mood changes
  • Dry skin
  • Body aches
  • Hair thinning and hair loss
  • Feeling cold
  • Feeling tired, as if you have the flu


Sleeve gastrectomy can provide long term weight loss. The amount of weight you lose depends on your change in lifestyle habits. It is possible to lose approximately 60%, or more, of your excess weight within two years. In addition to weight loss, sleeve gastrectomy may improve or resolve conditions related to being overweight, including: 

  • Heart disease
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
