A minimally invasive procedure in which your stomach is reduced to only 20% of its current capacity.
Approximately 80% of your stomach is surgically removed through small incisions, usually less than 1 inch.
The removed portion of stomach usually produces the appetite hormone, Ghrelin. Less Ghrelin equals Less Hunger.

The procedure tends to last less than 1 hour and it is done under general anesthesia.
It is the most trusted and commonly performed weight loss surgery procedure of today, as well as one of the safest.
