Gastric Sleeve Before and After Photos: Patient Success Stories
By Fernando Garcia on November 22, 2014
Many people put their trust in Dr. Fernando Garcia and the team at his Tijuana weight loss surgery center. Dr. Garcia places great emphasis on patient education and wellness, and he is more than happy to share photos and stories of successful gastric sleeve cases, which allows patients to understand the way that weight loss surgery makes positive differences in people's lives.
Let's take a moment right now to look at the basics of gastric sleeve surgery and note a pair of patient successes.
About Gastric Sleeve Surgery
Also known as a sleeve gastrectomy, gastric sleeve surgery involves the surgical reduction of the size of the stomach. This makes patients eat less and feel fuller faster, resulting in weight loss. It's one of the more common options for bariatric surgery, the other two being gastric bypass surgery and gastric band surgery.
How effective is sleeve gastrectomy?
Gastric sleeve surgery is very effective, allowing patients to lose a good deal of weight safely and relatively quickly. We've talked a great deal about gastric sleeve surgery on this blog, and the reason for that is that we believe in the effectiveness of this surgery that much.
Dramatic Weight Loss for Obese and Morbidly Obese Patients
As you can see from the above before and after photo, the results of gastric sleeve surgery can be quite dramatic. Patients will lose a lot of excess weight and achieve a slimmer and more athletic frame as a result.
In addition to the appearance of the patient, they will often be healthier as well, and less likely to experience problems related to type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease.
Another Success Story
Here is another dramatic before and after photo of a patient who's benefited from gastric sleeve surgery. In just four months, the patient has lost about 80 pounds and looks much healthier and happier. The weight loss continued for her as she healed and adjusted to her new diet, and her health improved a great deal as well.
The bottom line is that gastric sleeve changes lives for the better.
Seeing Is Believing, and Discussion Is Key for Success
The two before and after photos above are just a pair of success stories. There are plenty of other successes we can share with you.
