The effect of weight loss on hormones
Researchers investigated changes to several hormones after weight loss.
“Rather than the stomach being banded, a relatively new procedure, called a sleeve gastrectomy, removes almost three quarters of the stomach forever.”
“Some people choose sleeve gastrectomy more because it is somewhat lower maintenance than gastric banding, with no adjustments to be made,” said Dr Ahmad Aly from Darebin Weightloss Surgery.
According to Dr Aly, the results are also much more impressive.
“On average, a patient with sleeve gastrectomy seems to lose around 65 per cent to 70 per cent excess weight. Gastric banding averages 50 to 60 per cent excess weight loss,” he said.
