Gastric sleeve surgery is one of the most effective ways to lose weight. It is a restrictive type of surgery which provides long term results because of making the stomach smaller and thus helping people to lose weight easier by making them feel full after eating
small portion meals.
Although weight loss surgery is very effective and highly desirable, not everyone is able to afford it. With the rising costs of the gastric sleeve operation, it makes sense to come to Prague to have this procedures done. It's not only affordable, but
Prague is the capital of the Czech Republic and one of Europe's most renowned cities for its hundreds of spires, picturesque views, and the magnificent cathedrals.

During the surgery the surgeon divides the stomach removing a portion of it so that it's becomes a much smaller. Then, in a process sometimes called stomach stapling the small part of the stomach is sewn or stapled together to make a pouch,
which can hold only a cup or so of food. With such a small stomach, people feel full quickly and eat less. This strategy is also called restrictive, since the new stomach size restricts how much food it can hold.
Post-surgery weight loss is often dramatic. On average, patients lose 60% of their extra weight. For example, a person weighing
159 kilos (350 pound) person is 91 kilos (200 pounds) overweight would drop about 54 kilos (120 pounds). Many
weight-related health problems improve or even disappear after gastric bypass surgery. The most common are diabetes, high blood
pressure, asthma, and obstructive sleep apnea. But losing weight and keeping it off takes lasting lifestyle changes, like eating
several small meals a day and getting regular exercise.
