A Gastric Sleeve, also known as Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy, is a minimally-invasive surgery performed on the stomach. This 1-2 hour weight-loss procedure consists of making the stomach into a long tube, or “sleeve”, by removing two-thirds of the stomach which delivers quicker and more prolonged satiety (sense of fullness) and decreased appetite. The smaller stomach pouch restricts food intake by allowing only a limited amount of food to be eaten at one time.
This is a popular weight loss surgery in Mexico because it is designed to help you by eliminating your desire to eat as much or as often. Gastric sleeve surgery in Tijuana is a simpler procedure to perform than gastric bypass, resulting in lower complications and faster recovery times.
