The rate of weight loss after gastric sleeve surgery varies from person to person, depending on many different factors. In general, you can expect to lose about 60% of your excess weight after gastric sleeve surgery. There is usually a lot of weight loss in the first 6 months after surgery.
How effective you will get from gastric sleeve surgery will depend on how much effort you put into maintaining a healthy lifestyle after surgery. A healthy diet and regular exercise are important for promoting and maintaining weight loss.

Every surgery carries some risks and complications. Before agreeing to continue her treatment, it is important to educate yourself so that you can make an informed decision about having gastric sleeve.

This complication can cause stomach contents to irritate other organs and cause a serious infection. We only work with highly skilled and experienced surgeons to minimize the risk of complications such as leaks in BNC. You have a risk of bleeding within 2 weeks following the operation. The risk of bleeding and bruising is usually quite low. Any type of surgery carries a risk of infection. If infection occurs after gastric sleeve, it is usually mild and can be treated with a short course of antibiotics. But in some cases, infections may become more severe and require you to return to the hospital for treatment. Below are some signs of infection to watch out for:
The Fever above 38 ° C,
Redness spreading from the wound area 48 hours after the surgery,

These pains disappear with the placement of the balloon. Indigestion and vomiting symptoms can be seen in the case of overfeeding the patients in a way that is not suitable for the diet.
