Improve Your Health & Overall Well-Being
Long-Term Weight Loss
Gastric sleeve plication reduces the size of your stomach by 70 to 75 percent. This limits how much you can eat, meaning you absorb fewer calories. Not only will you feel full more quickly, but you may also experience a decrease in appetite.
Minimally InvasiveGastric sleeve plication surgery does not involve cutting, stapling, or the removal of any part of the digestive tract. The procedure only takes one to two hours to complete.
Higher Quality of Life
Obesity impacts your life on a number of levels. From the way you perceive yourself to your energy levels, obesity has a major effect on your daily routine. If you are a good candidate, you can improve your self-confidence and boost your vitality with gastric sleeve plication.
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 and throughout Baja California, 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 over Gastric Bypass
Unlike gastric bypass surgery, gastric sleeve plication does not require the removal of any portion of the stomach or restructuring of the digestive tract.
No Further Surgeries
Unlike some other bariatric procedures, modification surgeries and implants are not required for gastric sleeve plication.
Gastric sleeve plication is one of the only bariatric procedure that is reversible. It can also be converted to another bariatric procedure at a later date, if necessary, to offset certain side effects or promote more rapid weight loss.
Because the treatment is staple-free, there is no risk of bleeding or leaking after surgery. There is also no risk of rejection of a foreign object at the closure site. This means gastric sleeve plication surgery involves a low risk of short-term complications.
No Impact on Digestion
Because no portion of the stomach or intestines is removed, the procedure does not compromise the ability of the digestive system to absorb nutrients.

The goal is to reduce the size of the stomach by folds (plications) from its own wall.
The Process of Gastric Sleeve Plication Surgery in Tijuana Mexico
At the Obesity Goodbye Center, a laparoscopic method is followed to perform the Gastric Sleeve Plication Surgery in Tijuana Mexico. This means that very small five to six incisions are made within the abdomen area of the patient and there is no need to perform an open surgery. Dr. Verboonen will perform the Gastric Sleeve Plication Surgery by using a video camera also called a laparoscope and other elongated surgical devices that are inserted through the small incisions to access the abdominal cavity.
What is the Process?
The process of the Gastric Sleeve Plication Surgery includes creating a pleat by folding the lining of the stomach towards inside and sewing one or more folds in the stomach. In this way, the size and the volume of the stomach are reduced by approximately 70 to 75 percent, making the stomach capable of holding less amount of food which eventually helps you feel full after consuming a small meal. It also helps you feel full for a longer duration and you will experience hunger less frequently.
The process of the Gastric Sleeve Plication Surgery does not involve any cutting, stapling or removing of any part of the digestive tract as compared to other bariatric surgical procedures. Moreover, the Gastric Sleeve Plication Surgery can be also converted to other bariatric surgical treatments to maintain the healthy weight or if the patient is unable to receive the desired outcome. Unlike other bariatric procedures, the Gastric Sleeve Plication Surgery is reversible. Considering that the Gastric Sleeve Plication Surgery is less invasive as the Obesity Goodbye Center uses the laparoscopic technique, it normally takes only one to two hours to complete.
Once the Gastric Sleeve Plication Surgery is successfully executed, the patients are normally required to stay at the Obesity Goodbye Center for a day or two and the complete recovery may take around one week. Patients can healthily return to work after one week.
However, once you have successfully recovered, you have to engage in necessary lifestyle changes to maximize the weight loss outcome which may include adopting healthy eating habits and following an active lifestyle with regular exercising.
What to Expect during the Healing Process
Effect on Hunger
Following surgery, the part of the stomach that produces hunger-inducing hormones will still be present. While you can expect to feel full faster after eating less food, the sensation of hunger will not change.
Length of Recovery
The recovery process may take slightly longer than other treatments, such as gastric sleeve surgery.
The success rate of gastric sleeve plication surgery is slightly less compared to gastric sleeve surgery and other bariatric surgical procedures.
