Learn about the Gastric Sleeve and see how it is performed. 
What is the Gastric Sleeve? 
The procedure is simple. It consists of the removal of part of the stomach to reduce its size and avoid 
excessive food consumption. 
The stomach is an elastic bag where food is received to be processed by the digestive system. When the 
stomach is small, the feeling of satiety comes sooner, and the patient stops eating. 
In addition, with the removal of part of the stomach, the gland located in the upper part, responsible for 
producing the hunger hormone, is eliminated. As a result, the patient will not feel hunger or anxiety 
about consuming food, which is the main reason why diets do not work. 
How is the procedure performed? 
The gastric sleeve operation is performed under general anesthesia, using laparoscopic surgery. That is, 
no cuts or large incisions that take time to heal, but three to four small incisions, just a few millimeters 
in diameter. 
The procedure is performed from the outside, using a small TV camera inserted through one of the 
small holes and with instruments that use the same cuts.

The doctor watches the operation through a TV monitor installed in the operating room. 
For this reason, the Gastric Sleeve is a minimally invasive system because there will never be large cuts 
in the abdominal cavity, nor bleeding or pain in the reoperation process. 
How is part of the stomach removed? 
Wielding a type of scissors, the surgeon makes a cut from top to bottom. He then removes the removed 
portion of the stomach through one of the holes drilled at the beginning of the operation.  
To close the stomach, a kind of zipper is used, which with the passage of time will heal and will be 
eliminated without problems. 
What remains in place of the stomach is a tube instead of a pouch. This is why it is called the Gastric 
Sleeve procedure. 
In a period of approximately ten days, the patient will be able to return to normal activities, always 
under the supervision of the VIVE Bariatric team. 
The stomach does not grow back, and the patient can recover his normal life, without the need to 
consume food supplements, since his nutrition will be normal six months or a year after the
