During Sleeve Gastrectomy, about 80% of the stomach is split with staplers and removed. Since the remaining part of the stomach takes the shape of a tube / sleeve, it is called a sleeve gastrectomy. There is no connection with the small bowels.

A person with a sleeve gastrectomy can consume less food than normal (restriction), but there is no malabsorption

While a part of the stomach is removed, this procedure is irreversible.
