Start your journey to a new you.
If you’ve been unable to lose weight through diet and exercise alone, gastric sleeve surgery could help you achieve your weight loss goals. Also known as sleeve gastrectomy, gastric sleeve surgery may be suitable if you have a BMI of over 30, especially if you have Type 2 diabetes, or if you suffer from another condition associated with obesity.
Gastric sleeve surgery can result in considerable weight loss, giving you a healthier, more fulfilling lifestyle. Less invasive than a gastric bypass but more complex than a gastric band, gastric sleeve patients lose on average 55-60% of excess weight after three years, according to the 2014 National Bariatric Surgery Registry Report.
How is the gastric sleeve surgery performed?
The gastric sleeve procedure involves reducing the size and capacity of the stomach by around 75%, which includes removing the upper part of the stomach where ghrelin (the hormone that stimulates hunger) is produced. This helps to reduce appetite and portion size, significantly assisting your weight loss efforts.

There are many benefits you could look forward to after undergoing gastric sleeve surgery. Weighing less can make it a lot easier to move around, allowing you to enjoy a whole spectrum of new activities which may improve your general fitness and wellbeing. The weight loss you have from gastric sleeve surgery has also been proven to help with a number of health-related conditions, such as type 2 diabetes and/or high blood pressure.
After significant weight loss, you may feel an improvement in your mental health, with a more positive outlook, higher confidence and self-esteem, and an overall better quality of life.
"Having the surgery has changed my life – I wish it was something I’d done 20 years ago. My confidence has grown so much as a result, and I’m so much healthier too. Customers that I’ve had for many years still walk past without recognising me. It’s been such a life changer"
"Had a gastric band 3 years ago. I’m now six stone lighter and so happy. Would recommend to anyone."
"Every little thing I’ve needed has been sorted out compassionately and professionally."
Your decision to have weight loss surgery is a big one. Sometimes it helps to hear from people who have been in your shoes. People who have had their surgery and can share their experience from start to finish. Our `before and afters` photos features images of real people, before and after weight loss surgery, to give you an idea of the results you can expect to see.
You may be considering gastric sleeve surgery if you are suffering with obesity, have a body mass index (BMI) of 35 or over, if diet and exercise alone have proven unsuccessful in managing your weight, and if you are committed to making a lifestyle change. Gastric sleeve surgery could be the answer to working towards the body you want and living a healthier, happier life.
Gastric sleeve surgery will help you lose weight by surgically creating a smaller stomach, thereby restricting your food intake. You will need to make healthier food choices and engage in regular planned exercise to achieve and maintain your results.
Following significant weight loss through a gastric sleeve could improve health conditions such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and sleep apnoea.

ARE THERE ANY RISKS?
All surgical procedures pose a potential risk, and it is important know what these are before you go ahead so that you can weigh them up against the benefits your procedure could bring. During your consultations you will talk through these potential complications and you can ask any questions that you have about them. As a guide, these may include bleeding, infection, nausea, vomiting and constipation.
