Houston Weight Loss Surgery Sleeve

What is this sleeve everyone talks about when discussing weight loss surgery, how does it work, and what should I know about it before considering one?

Houston Weight Loss Surgery Sleeve

A Houston weight loss surgery gastric sleeve is the process of removing a large portion of the stomach and leaves only a small portion left. This limits the amount of food a person can ingest and gives the feeling of being full after eating less food. The section of the stomach that is removed is also responsible for releasing most of the hormones signalling hunger to our brains which leads to cravings and eating. Having this section removed cuts back on the hunger cravings and cuts back on access eating habits.
