Gastric sleeve surgery is a type of obesity surgery with a significant reduction in the stomach's capacity. A forced and physiological restriction on the amount of food consumed is performed. In this type of surgery, the surgeons separate 80% of the elastic part of the stomach. This part includes the part of the stomach that secretes the hormone Ghrelin, a hormone that plays an important role in creating appetite. And the rest of the stomach is punched. The special titanium for these operations is repaired, and 80% of the gastric tissue is removed from the body.
