Best Gastric sleeve surgeon in delhi

Sleeve Gastrectomy

Sleeve gastrectomy is a surgical procedure that induces weight loss by restricting food intake. With this procedure, which is usually performed laparoscopically, the surgeon removes approximately 75 percent of the stomach.  This results in the stomach taking on the shape of a tube or “sleeve” which holds much less food. Dr. Sukhvinder Singh Saggu is the best weight loss surgeon. Call now for a Sleeve Gastrectomy in Delhi NCR.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • When can patients return to normal activity?

Ans. Patients can resume normal activity within 3 to 4 weeks after their surgery. Any pain related to the surgery should go away after 7-10 days or so. One must take proper precautions and follow medications, lifestyle, and dietary changes to receive full recovery. 

  • Why can’t you eat rice after gastric sleeve?

Ans. Consuming starchy foods like fried potatoes, rice, and pasta may cause bloating, gas, and discomfort in some individuals. Avoid large amounts of rice because it’s a refined carbohydrate with few other nutrients that is hard to digest after the surgery. 

  • What is the best food after sleeve surgery?

Ans. Eat a high protein option and add small amounts of soft vegetables and carbohydrates. Soft and pureed foods, such as eggs, ground meats, fish, beans, cooked vegetables, and soft fruits, are good to eat. Avoid alcoholic and carbonated beverages. 

  • What happens 10 years after gastric sleeve?

Ans. Vitamin deficiencies, gastric stenosis, mediastinal pouch migration, and the development or exacerbation of gastroesophageal reflux diseases can occur in later life. However, the success of the surgery can be seen in patients even after 10 years of gastric sleeve. 

  • What is the life expectancy after gastric sleeve?

Ans. Medical research suggests that individuals who have received bariatric surgery for obesity tend to live approximately three years longer on average than those who have undergone conventional obesity treatment.
