Still worried about undergoing bariatric surgery in Tijuana rather than the United States?
Many patients who want to undergo weight loss surgeries like gastric sleeve plication cannot do so because of cost or because they are worried about undergoing surgery in a foreign country.
But the Tijuana Bariatrics network of doctors performs each procedure using the same advanced technology as American doctors. Every bariatric surgery is performed with a laparoscope—a tool that allows the doctor to perform surgery through several small incisions. This minimally invasive technique make surgery more efficient and reduces the risk of complications.
Once you are cleared for weight loss surgery, here is what you can expect...
An innovative, restrictive bariatric procedure, gastric sleeve plication surgery reduces the size of the stomach by creating an internal fold in the organ. Capacity is cut by about 75 percent, allowing patients to satisfy their hunger much faster with considerably less food. Unlike gastric bypass surgery or gastric sleeve surgery, gastric sleeve plication surgery does not require the rerouting or re-sectioning of the digestive tract. Because healthy tissue is sutured together rather than removed, patients can lose weight quickly without permanently compromising their digestive ability.
Unlike many other bariatric surgeries, gastric sleeve plication does not remove or reorganize any of the digestive tract. As a result, it is much easier to revise or even undo the effects of the surgery if they do not satisfy the patient’s goals or needs
Despite the procedure's benefits, patients should be aware of the potential risks associated with the surgery. Because it is a relatively new procedure, the lasting effects are not well-known yet. Weight loss is typically gradual, and more pronounced over time. Recovery may also take longer than with other gastric surgeries. Be sure to discuss your options with your surgeon to ensure that you receive the best treatment for your goals.
