How it works

General anesthesia will be used during the operation. The duration of the operation is around 1 hour, although it can take longer, depending on the patient’s condition. Between 75% and 85% of the stomach is removed, leaving a small gastric tube with a capacity of 100ml. This reduces the amount of food you can eat, but leaves the digestive tract unchanged, maintaining the same levels of nutrient absorption as before.

Due to the reduced stomach capacity, you will not able to eat much physically, so the amount of calories received is significantly reduced, and the weight begins to drop. Along with the removal of ~75% of the stomach, the main receptors responsible for the feeling of hunger are also removed, so the production of the hunger hormone ghrelin decreases. Thanks to this, the feeling of excessive hunger disappears.

In the first month after surgery, all food should be crushed to the consistency of a porridge. After that it is possible to return to normal food, with the only difference being the significantly reduced portion size. It is recommended to eat 3-4 times a day, not to eat in the evening, to avoid sweets, “heavy” food and fatty products (fat content of dairy products should not exceed 1%). It is important not to drink while eating.

It is necessary to take micronutrient and iron supplements, and to have a general blood test done from time to time, which shows the amount of haemoglobin in the blood. Postoperative consultation with a nutritionist is recommended, as well as physical activity that should begin about a month after surgery. It is very important to follow these recommendations. Otherwise, even after gastric reduction surgery, the stomach may begin stretching after a few years and the weight will start to increase again.

Most weight is lost in the first year after surgery, but a sustained result requires a change in eating habits and  lifestyle.
