Weightloss Program


For people suffering from severe obesity, Gastric Sleeve Surgery has become a popular weight loss option. If you’ve been thinking about having weight loss surgery in Dubai to regain your health and happiness, the Laparoscopic Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy or gastric sleeve surgery in Dubai procedure might be for you.

Our specialist for gastric sleeve surgery in Dubai, Dr Nikolas Valsamidis can advise you on whether this is a good option for you.

Patients undergoing gastric sleeve surgery can experience substantial weight loss, improvements in obesity-related conditions (such as type 2 diabetes and sleep apnea), and an enhanced quality of life.

Additionally, long-term lifestyle changes, including a healthy diet and regular exercise, are typically necessary for sustained success after gastric sleeve surgery.

Gastric Sleeve Surgery

What is Gastric Sleeve Surgery?

Gastric sleeve surgery (Sleeve Gastrectomy) is a type of weight loss surgery in which a portion of the stomach is removed, which leaves behind a smaller, sleeve-shaped stomach. The surgery is typically performed laparoscopically, which entails making small incisions and using a camera and specialized instruments to perform the procedure by the qualified laparoscopic surgeon.

This restrictive procedure works by removing a large portion of your stomach permanently, allowing it to only hold a small amount of food. To reduce your appetite, a sleeve gastrectomy also removes the part of your stomach that secretes the hunger-stimulating hormone ghrelin.

Some benefits of gastric sleeve surgery include a short hospital stay, no rerouting of the food stream, and favorable changes in gut hormones that suppress hunger, reduce appetite, and improve satiety.

Suitable candidate for Gastric Sleeve

Above all, the patient must demonstrate a willingness to address their obesity and medical condition through a medically supervised program in Dubai.

A suitable candidate for gastric sleeve surgery in Dubai must fulfill the following criteria:

  • You have a BMI of 35 or higher.
  • Your BMI is greater than 30, and you have other medical conditions, such as type 2 diabetes or high blood pressure, that can be improved by losing weight.
  • You are physically fit enough to undergo general anesthesia and surgery.
  • You are determined to lose weight and keep it off through lifestyle and dietary changes.
  • You’ve tried for at least six months to lose weight by eating healthy and exercising, but it hasn’t worked.

How does the Gastric Sleeve technique work?

Excessive food consumption causes the stomach to swell to an abnormally large size. As a result, despite consuming large amounts of high-calorie meals, the patients remain unsatisfied. Gastric sleeve surgery corrects this by removing a portion of the stomach, transforming the pouch-shaped stomach into a sleeve shape. As a result, it leaves behind a much smaller stomach, which reduces the production of hunger-inducing hormones.

Some of the major highlights of this weight loss surgery in Dubai are as follows:

  • It suppresses hunger, which reduces the production of the hunger-inducing hormone “ghrelin.”
  • When compared to other weight-loss surgical procedures, it requires less time in the operating room.
  • It improves overall quality of life by increasing stomach motility and allowing food to pass more quickly through the stomach.

Gastric Sleeve Procedure

Sleeve Gastrectomy in Dubai is a relatively simple procedure that results in fewer complications such as vitamin deficiencies, faster recovery times, and immediate weight loss results because patients can lose weight in a much shorter period of time.

The procedure, which takes about 40-70 minutes, begins with tiny incisions in the abdominal wall to insert small trocars. The Surgeon examines the stomach and inserts a Bougie tube into it with a stapler to give the stomach a new size and shape. The continuous firing of the stapler removes 75 to 80 percent of the stomach’s original volume, leaving behind the new banana-shaped stomach.


After the procedure, pain is easily managed, and patients are encouraged to start walking within 3 to 4 hours. Most patients are discharged within a day or two and can return to work or studies in two to three weeks. Our weight loss team in Dubai supports patients throughout the process, scheduling regular follow-up appointments.
