For individuals with extreme obesity or patients with critical health conditions related to obesity, the Gastric Sleeve Surgery has become a common and effective bariatric surgical procedure to induce weight loss. The Gastric Sleeve Surgery is mainly recommended for individuals with a BMI above 40.  The Gastric Sleeve Surgery at the Obesity Good Bye Center in Tijuana is performed by Dr. Sergio Verboonen through the advanced laparoscopic technique.


How Can Gastric Sleeve Surgery Help With Weight Loss

Taking out a significant part of the stomach results in minimizing the level of a hormone known as ghrelin within the body which induces the feelings of hunger.

As a result, patients who undergo the Gastric Sleeve Surgery will experience less hunger. In this way, the Gastric Sleeve Surgery helps with instant and effective weight loss. Within a period of three years after the Gastric Sleeve Surgery, patients can expect to reduce approximately half of their additional body weight without any requirements of implanting a gastric band or rearranging the digestive tract.

Considering that ghrelin also performs a substantial role in the metabolism of sugar in the blood, therefore, the patients having obesity-induced type 2 diabetes usually experience an instant reduction in their requirement for medication of diabetes.

The Surgery Process

The Gastric Sleeve Surgery is a bariatric procedure that decreases the size of the stomach to support obese individuals with weight loss.

Considering that the Obesity Goodbye Clinic uses the less invasive laparoscopic technique, the procedure is completed within an hour and the patient fully recovers within 15 days.

However, we feel obliged to inform our patients that the particular outcome of the Gastric Sleeve Surgery is never assured and each individual may experience a different outcome.

After undergoing the Gastric Sleeve Surgery, patients tend to satisfy their hunger with a small portion of the meal, experience less hunger and therefore lose weight instantly.

During the Gastric Sleeve Surgery, almost 75 percent of the stomach is taken out. The remaining part of the stomach is sealed in a shape of the elongated sleeve, which means that the ability of the stomach to hold food is reduced substantially. The sleeved shaped remaining stomach is connected to the small intestine so that the nutrients in the food can be absorbed by the body during the food digestion process.

Choosing the Obesity Goodbye Clinic to undergo Gastric Sleeve Surgery means that there will be a higher possibility of success with lifelong results if you dedicate yourself to lose weight by eating healthy and maintaining an active lifestyle.

As the surgery will commence, you will be sedated under local anesthesia. Considering that the Obesity Goodbye Clinic follows a laparoscopic technique, a small incision will be made in the abdomen area and the restructuring of the stomach will be started.

The size of your stomach will be reduced by approximately 75 percent. The unwanted additional part of the stomach will be removed and the remaining 25 percent of the stomach will be sealed with staples, leaving it in a shape of a curved tube or sleeve. Finally, the incision will be closed.
