Benefits of  Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Substantial Weight Loss

Typically, patients lose about half their weight within six months of treatment. In about one year, you can expect to achieve approximately 80 percent weight loss.*

Reduced Hunger

The size of your stomach will be significantly reduced during the procedure, including the portion that creates the hunger hormone. As a result, you will feel fuller quicker and for longer.*

Less Invasive & Revisable Procedure

The less invasive nature of the procedure reduces your risk of infection, malnutrition, and other serious complications compared to other weight loss surgeries. It is also easily revised.*

*Notice the results may vary for each patient depending on many factors related to race, age, health, gender and whether or not the patient follows the doctor’s post-operative instructions.

How does gastric sleeve surgery work?

Gastric Sleeve Surgery: Dramatic Results Achieved Safely

The procedure

A stomach after undergoing gastric sleeve surgery.The Gastric Sleeve surgery in Mexico takes about one hour to perform. 

VSG, Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy, or most commonly referred to as the Gastric Sleeve in Mexico is one of the leading bariatric surgery options available for weight loss, that involves the removal of a portion of the stomach allowing for the management of morbid obesity. Normally during the Gastric sleeve surgery, between 70 and 80 percent of the stomach is removed including the area where the ghrelin or hunger hormone is produced.*

The incisions

Incisions required for gastric sleeve surgery.The portion of the stomach that remains will take the shape of a sleeve, reducing the amount of food the patient is able to consume. The patients who undergo this form of weight loss surgery may feel full faster, as well as possibly feel fuller longer, which thus can help the patient potentially lose weight. Of course, this all depends on if the patient follows the doctor’s post-operative advice, as well as each patient will have different results depending on many factors related to race, age, health and gender. Dr. Hidalgo uses a special inverted sleeve technique that helps protect the patient from leaks and long term weight regain by hand stitching over the surgical staples at the end of the sleeve surgery.

With this surgery the patient may experience a significant amount of weight loss while having a surgery that is considered to be one which is low risk for infection or other serious complication.*
