by Dr. Sergio Verboonen
The Benefits of the Gastric Sleeve Surgery in Mexico: Reduces hunger as the part of the stomach that produces hunger (ghrelin hormone) is removed and the weight loss continues for at least 18 months while you develop new habits in both nutrition and physical activity.
You also benefit from improved longevity, long-term weight loss success and improvement/resolution of coexisting diseases. Among many of it's benefits, you can find the reduction of hunger, due to the removal of the hunger-inducing hormone ghrelin since it will be removed with the larger portion of the stomach. As a major benefit, it does not require the rerouting of the digestive track and there are no adjustments needed like the lap-band.

Patients who underwent the Gastric Sleeve Surgery in Tijuana, Mexico experienced an approximately 60-100 percent reduction in the additional body weight.
However, this outcome can only be obtained if a patient strictly adheres to the behavioral and dietary instructions provided. It is significant to make a smart choice when it comes to food, maintain a daily exercise regime and adopt healthy eating habits to experience weight loss and keep it off.
The risk of post-surgery complications is relatively low with the Gastric Sleeve Surgery because it does not involve implantation of any foreign object in the body and it does not require any complicated restructuring of the digestive system as compared to the other bariatric surgical procedures.
The patients who adhere to all guidelines during their recovery period reported that they could easily consume different varieties of food items such as meat and fiber-rich vegetables among a complete balanced diet.
Although it is a less complicated bariatric procedure, the patient needs to be aware of the fact that the Gastric Sleeve Surgery is a permanent alteration of your stomach and it is irreversible.
In the Gastric Sleeve Surgery, approximately 80 percent of the stomach is removed and the remaining 20 percent of the stomach is left in shape of a banana or a sleeve which is capable of holding less volume of food 6-8 oz.
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 helps with instant and effective weight loss. Within a period of one 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 (results vary by BMI).
Considering that ghrelin also performs a substantial role in the metabolism of sugar in the blood the patients having obesity-induced type 2 diabetes usually experience an instant reduction in their requirement for medication of diabetes (result vary).
The Gastric Sleeve Surgery is a bariatric procedure that decreases the size of the stomach creating a restrictive food intake condition.
Considering that we use the less invasive laparoscopic technique, the procedure is completed within an hour or less and the patient fully recovers within 15 days (some physical activity will require longer times).
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 fast.
During the Gastric Sleeve Procedure, about 80 percent of the stomach is removed. 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 V Bariatric Institute (Obesity Goodbye Center) 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 placed under general anesthesia. Considering that the VBariatric Institute (OGBC) follows an advance 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 80 percent. The unwanted additional part of the stomach will be removed and the remaining 20 percent of the stomach will be sealed with titanium inert staples, leaving it in a shape of a curved tube or sleeve. Finally, the incisions will be closed.
At Vbariatric the Sleeve Surgery is one the most successful bariatric procedures that will support you in weight loss and maintain a healthy life.
The Gastric Sleeve Surgery can also be converted after a patient obtains the desired weight loss outcome to a gastric bypass surgery or mini gastric bypass to maintain the healthy body weight (morbidly obese).
