What do you think about sleeve gastrectomy surgery?

I am about 170 pounds over weight and currently looking for a solution. No diet has been able to work for me and I considering seeking medical help. The risks of the Sleeve Gastrectomy seem pretty low but that is similar with other options as well. What should I focus on when making a decision?

You'll  need a consultation with a bariatric surgeon with experience in this procedure, not a cosmetic consultation.  In our practice (plastic surgery), we've seen many successful gastric sleeve operations helping patients reverse their obesity.
