Gastric sleeve surgery (also known as gastrectomy) is a weight loss procedure that purposely restricts the amount of food that you can eat because you feel full more quickly. Our advanced OCC surgeons utilize the double-buttress technique that prevents leaks, pouch enlargement and failure and at a very affordable price.
In this procedure, a thin, vertical sleeve of stomach (approximately eight inches long) is created using a stapling device and the rest of the stomach is removed. Food passes through the digestive tract as usual and is fully absorbed into the body.
Mexico gastric sleeve patients experience significant weight loss and improvements in their health. Weight loss outcomes are comparable to gastric bypass.
The Obesity Control Center® performs all gastric sleeve procedures laparoscopically, which is minimally invasive. Laparoscopic surgery usually results in a shorter hospital stay, faster recovery, smaller scars, and less pain than open procedures. Our highly qualified Tijuana gastric sleeve surgeons also exclusively feature the double-buttress technique that prevents leaks, pouch enlargement and the potential for future failure.
