40 kg of weight loss in just 4 months after gastric sleeve surgery
Another success story for Dr. Ahmed El Masry added to hundreds of others. Rami from Mecca achieved significant weight loss after gastric sleeve surgery, going from 126 kg to 86 kg in just 4 months!
Gastric sleeve surgery is suitable for obese patients who consume large quantities of food, but it is not suitable for sweet and sugar lovers or patients with gastroesophageal reflux.
Gastric sleeve surgery is considered successful if it meets these criteria:
1. 65% weight loss in the first year and reaching the ideal weight.
2. Eliminating obesity-related complications such as diabetes, hypertension, and joint and bone diseases.
3. Maintaining the results of the surgery and not regaining weight again.
Banded gastric sleeve surgery is the latest in bariatric surgery, where a ring is placed around the sleeved stomach during the surgery. This ring prevents the stomach from expanding if the patient has the urge to overeat and consume more food than the stomach's capacity. The ring also puts pressure on a specific nerve in the stomach, making the patient feel full and satisfied, thus stopping him from eating.
