The Gastric Sleeve Surgery is a bariatric procedure that removes 75 to 80 per cent of the stomach. It is done to help you lose excess weight and reduce your risk of weight-related potentially life-threatening health problems, such as heart disease, high blood pressure, and gastroesophageal reflux disease.
Over the past decade, gastric sleeve surgery has become a very safe bariatric procedure. However, some complications can still occur during and after surgery.
The surgery takes approximately 40-70 minutes, and you will be discharged from the hospital after one or two nights. Most patients are able to go back to work or school after 2-4 weeks.
The success rate of this procedure is approximately 80-90%. Gastric Sleeve surgery can cost you anywhere between USD 2,793 – USD 6,251 in India.
