About VSG

Sleeve Gastrectomy is a surgical weight loss tool in which the stomach is reduced to about 25% of its original size, by surgical removal of a large portion of the stomach, following the major curve. The open edges are then attached together (often with surgical staples, glue and possibly cauterization) to form a sleeve or tube with a banana shape. The procedure permanently reduces the size of the stomach and is performed laparoscopically and is not reversible.

Weight loss surgery is not a free pass

Came across this video on YouTube this weekend from a very honest VSG'er that is 3 years post op explaining how his choices have affected his weight. Yet another reminder how this surgery is just a TOOL and that we still have to make good choices and not over stuff our new stomachs or we risk regaining weight.
