GASTRIC SLEEVE SURGERY NEWCASTLE
If you are considering gastric sleeve surgery please do contact Central Coast Surgery. Dr Ken Wong, the Principal Surgeon, has performed many successful gastric sleeve surgeries in the Central Coast.
What is Gastric Sleeve?
A gastric sleeve is a surgical weight loss procedure that permanently removes and reduces the size of your stomach by two thirds. The procedure is performed via keyhole, this is known as a laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy. A small incision is made in your abdomen – reducing scarring and minimising post-surgery recovery time. The surgeon will pass the laparoscope and the instruments needed to perform the surgery through these openings.
After the part removal of your stomach, the remainder of your stomach is closed with staples. The operation limits the amount of food you can eat by making you feel full after eating small amounts of food. The procedure is performed under a general anaesthetic and patients can usually resume normal duties within a few weeks. Unlike other weight loss procedures like stomach banding, the operation is not reversible and does not involve implantation of any foreign material unlike a gastric band.
As you will be eating less it is very important that what you do eat gives you the correct nutrients that your body requires. It is very important that you keep in touch with Megan, our dietician as she will give you encouragement, support and advice on nutrition so that you may achieve faster and better results with your weight loss. She has much experience in helping sleeve gastrectomy patients that may live a long distance from our clinic such as in Newcastle and Sydney or beyond. Our patients have come from most states of Australia.
