The Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy also known as Gastric Sleeve Surgery, is a restrictive weight loss procedure that promotes weight reduction by constraining the amount of nourishment admission by the stomach.

Often called the sleeve – this procedure is performed by Dr. Verboonen by removing approximately 80% of your stomach. The remaining portion of your stomach is a tubular pouch with a similar shape of a banana.

Anyone with a body mass index (BMI) if 40 or more is a great candidate for this procedure, as this BMI indicates that you are 100 pounds or more over your ideal weight. However, this weight loss surgery can also be used to treat super morbid obesity for people with a BMI of 60 or above.

  • Patients can lose up to half of their weight in four to six months.
  • Patients find that their appetite is significantly reduced and that they become full much quicker.
  • The surgery is a safe weight loss option for significant weight reduction, with fewer complications than similar surgeries.

The Benefits of the Gastric Sleeve Surgery in Mexico: Reduces hunger as the part of the stomach that produces hunger (ghrelin hormone) is removed and the weight loss continues for at least 18 months while you develop new habits in both nutrition and physical activity.

You also benefit from improved longevity, long-term weight loss success and improvement/resolution of coexisting diseases. Among many of it’s benefits, you can find the reduction of hunger, due to the removal of the hunger-inducing hormone ghrelin since it will be removed with the larger portion of the stomach.

A wide variety of advantages come with having the gastric sleeve procedure, including:

  • Fast weight loss.
  • Causes great changes in gut hormones that smother hunger, diminish craving and enhance satiety
  • Short stay at the clinic – you will be discharged approximately two days after surgery
  • Patients report that they are less hungry after the surgery than they were before because their stomach is smaller. The part of your stomach that produces Ghrelin, which is the hunger hormone, will be removed during the surgery.
  • This surgery is safer than many other weight loss treatments. Your intestines will remain intact, and no foreign objects are placed in your body.
  • The procedure is revisable. Some people stretch their stomach back out if they don’t commit to losing weight and exercising. One of our certified bariatric professionals can retighten the stomach if it becomes stretched out.
