Patients can achieve significant weight loss. Gastric Sleeve patients see an average of 66% excess weight loss.
-Weight loss occurs over 18 months.
Type 2 diabetes is improved or goes into remission in 70% of patients.
Obesity-related health conditions can be significantly improved and in some cases reversed. There are often significant improvements in sleep apnea, high blood pressure, joint pain, and hyperlipidemia.
As excess weight is lost, patients are able to increase physical activity, which increases self- confidence and well-being.
Because the gastric sleeve surgery is minimally invasive, the hospital stay in Los Angeles or Beverly Hills and recovery times are shorter than with other, more invasive weight loss procedures.
The procedure is permanent, which makes it a lifelong treatment for obesity.
