Gastric Sleeve Offers Many Benefits

Gastric sleeve surgery, also called sleeve gastrectomy, carries many incredible benefits. 

Patients who undergo gastric sleeve can expect to lose 60% to even 70% of their excess weight within just one year of their procedure. Gastric sleeve can also lead to the remission of a variety of debilitating, potentially lethal medical conditions, like type II diabetes, sleep apnea, hypertension, and more. 

The incredible weight loss achieved by gastric sleeve surgery is largely because the procedure reduces feelings of hunger and the desire to eat. 

When we hear back from patients who visited our Tijuana practice for a gastric sleeve, they often tell us that in addition to dramatic weight loss, their daily quality of life and self-confidence have also improved dramatically. The incredible benefits of gastric sleeve surgery can seem too good to be true, but the truth is this bariatric surgery has been proven to be incredibly effective over many years of study

How Does Gastric Sleeve Work?

Diagram showing the portion of the stomach removed during gastric sleeve surgery

Gastric sleeve surgery succeeds by reducing the size of the stomach. During surgery, our bariatric surgeon will remove up to 80% of the stomach tissue. The remaining portion of the stomach will be approximately the size of a banana, and have a sleeve-like shape. 

As the stomach is refashioned into a smaller sleeve, you will feel fuller much quicker after eating. Sleeve gastrectomy also reduces the amount of ghrelin (the hunger hormone) your stomach produces on a daily basis. Together, reduced stomach size and reduced hunger hormone production means patients take in significantly fewer calories each day, leading to substantial weight loss. 

Start Your Weight Loss Journey

Gastric sleeve surgery in Tijuana can transform the rest of your life for the better. From your initial consultation through post-operative follow-ups, our bilingual team of weight loss surgery experts will do everything in its power to ensure an optimal experience.
