3 Reasons to Consider Gastric Sleeve Surgery
Gastric sleeve surgery (or sleeve gastrectomy) is the most commonly performed type of bariatrics in the United States, with gastric bypass coming in second place.
Why is gastric sleeve surgery so popular among U.S. patients?
Most obese patients lose up to 60 percent of their excess weight in the 12 to 18 months following their procedure.
Gastric sleeve surgery is very safe, and studies have found that it has a lower complication rate than gastric bypass surgery.
By rapidly eliminating excess weight, a sleeve gastrectomy can improve your overall health and quality of life.
What Is Gastric Sleeve Surgery?
Gastric sleeve is a restrictive weight loss procedure, meaning it restricts how much you can eat at one time. During the procedure, your bariatric surgeon will reduce the size of your stomach to approximately 15 percent of its original size. The remaining stomach pouch will resemble the size and shape of a banana. A smaller stomach limits your food intake, restricts your caloric intake, and helps you achieve rapid weight loss.
If you are unhappy with the results of a previous gastric sleeve surgery, you can also undergo gastric sleeve revision at our Tijuana, Mexico, hospital.
How Much Is Gastric Sleeve Surgery in Mexico?
When you undergo weight loss surgery at our Tijuana, Mexico, hospital, you can expect to pay less than half of what you would pay for surgery in the U.S. We also provide many safe options for patients to make deposits and payments to our hospital.

Who Is Eligible for Gastric Sleeve?
Have You Tried Diet & Exercise?
Bariatrics should be a last-resort option. Before resorting to weight loss surgery, you should try dieting, exercise, and other lifestyle changes. If you are unable to achieve weight loss, contact our practice to explore your options.
What's Your BMI?
Weight loss surgery is recommended for patients who have a BMI (body mass index) over 40 or who are more than 100 pounds overweight. If your BMI is 35 and up, you can also qualify if you suffer from obesity-related disorders like sleep apnea.
Are You Committed?
In order to maintain long-term weight loss, you will need to commit to healthy habits for life. If you start eating large amounts of high-calorie foods or living a sedentary lifestyle, you run the risk of regaining weight and reversing the effects of your gastric sleeve procedure.
