Gastric sleeve surgery is a commonly chosen procedure for a patient who struggles with losing weight. After arrival to Poland, a patient is taken from the airport to the hotel and after that, all necessary examinations are performed ( e.g blood test, urine tests, chest x-rays, lungs and stomach tests). The surgery is performed on the next day yet 2 weeks before it you need to follow a restrictive diet which is crucial for a surgery to be successful. Gastric sleeve surgery is performed under general anaesthesia and you need to stay three days in the hospital to recover. Moreover, there are necessary check-ups following the procedure.

Gastric sleeve is a laparoscopic procedure performed under general anaesthetic during which several small incisions are made with the use of small instruments and a camera which guides the surgery. The size of a stomach resembles the size of a banana as more than a half is removed. One of the advantages of gastric sleeve is that it is a non-reversible procedure so it is not necessary to have another one in the future. Moreover, as you will be eating less the surgeon will suggest taking vitamins and supplements to fulfil daily needs.

It is of great importance to follow the restrictive diet especially vegetables, fruits and proteins.
