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.

I bought a bunch of clothes today... Incredulous to be wearing small and mediums yet the thing that stopped me more than my slim figure in the mirror was how I shied away from certain styles of clothing. Even 84 lbs down I still think that certain styles make me look "wide" or "fat" ... Weird how that even a small teenager worth of weight off my body will still make me worry that this shirt flares too much or those slacks give me muffin top
