If your BMI is greater than 30, you may well be eligible for sleeve gastrectomy.
Not all overweight people qualify for the gastric sleeve. There are some criteria that must be fulfilled before a patient is approved for surgery.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) requires a body mass index (BMI) greater than 40. This is the equivalent of being about 100 pounds overweight for men and 80 pounds overweight for women.
People with BMIs between 35 and 39 may also be candidates for weight loss surgery if they have obesity-related illnesses such as diabetes, high blood pressure or high cholesterol. A BMI takes height and weight into account to measure body fatness.
The laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy helps patients lose weight by removing approximately 80 percent of the stomach using minimally invasive surgical techniques.
The remaining stomach is formed into a tube, like a sleeve. This part of the procedure is not reversible. The stomach that remains is shaped like a banana and measures from 2-5 ounces (60-150cc) depending on the surgeon performing the procedure.
Gastric sleeve surgery is a very powerful weight loss tool, producing impressive results. There are two mechanisms at work. The first is oral restriction. With a significantly smaller stomach, there is a much smaller reservoir to receive food. As a result, patients can only eat and drink small amounts at a time.
