Gastric Sleeve Plication Surgery

Gastric Sleeve Plication Surgery

Gastric Sleeve Plication Surgery in Tijuana Mexico

by Dr. Sergio Verboonen

The aim of this weight loss procedure was the restriction of or ideally packing as much space of stomach as possible via folds (plications) from its own wall.  A set of very small incisions are made within the abdomen area of the patient using laparoscopic technology and there is no need to perform an open surgery.  Laparoscopic Gastric Plication (LGP) is a restrictive bariatric surgery procedure in which no part of the stomach is removed.

The percentage of EWL in this technique is comparable to other restrictive methods.  The technique is safe with 1.6% complication (1% reoperated), and 31% regain during 12 years.

The Gastric Sleeve Plication Surgery can only be performed by a selected number of bariatric surgeons in Tijuana Mexico, due to its complicated nature.

Dr. Sergio Verboonen has been performing Gastric Sleeve Plication Weight Loss Surgery for over 20 years.



The Benefits of Gastric Sleeve Plication Surgery

The main idea behind the Gastric Sleeve Plication Surgery is to offer the major advantages of other bariatric surgical procedures while avoiding the risk of complications associated with them. This is why the Gastric Sleeve Plication Surgery does not include any kind of restructuring of the digestive tract like the gastric bypass surgery and it does not require any further modification surgeries or the implantation of a foreign object inside the body. Another significant benefit of the Gastric Sleeve Plication Surgery which makes it stand out from rest of the bariatric surgeries is that it can be reversed as it does not involve removal of any digestive organ. The further benefits of the Gastric Sleeve Plication Surgery are:

  • It does not involve removal of stomach tissue.
  • The process is fully reversible and can be revised to another bariatric surgical treatment.
  • It does not compromise on the capability of the digestive system to absorb nutrients.
  • It involves a low risk of short-term complications.
  • Considering that there is no need of staples, it means that there is no risk of bleeding or leaking and rejection of a foreign object at the closure site.

Along with the advantages of the Gastric Sleeve Plication Surgery, we at the Obesity Goodbye Clinic, feel obliged to educate our patients about any kind of risks associated with the procedure:

  • The recovery process may take longer as compared to regular gastric sleeve surgery.
  • The success ratio of the Gastric Sleeve Plication Surgery is slightly less as compared to the regular gastric sleeve surgery and other bariatric surgical procedures.
  • The part of the stomach producing hunger-inducing hormones stays
