Gastric Sleeve Surgery in Tijuana, Mexico.
Gastric sleeve surgery in Tijuana, Mexico also known as sleeve gastrectomy, is a bariatric surgery procedure offered by Hidalgo Bariatrics in Tijuana, Mexico. It involves the surgical removal of a large portion of the stomach, resulting in a smaller, sleeve-shaped stomach. This surgery aims to help individuals achieve significant weight loss by reducing the stomach’s capacity and restricting the amount of food that can be consumed.
During the gastric sleeve surgery in Tijuana, Dr. Juan F. Hidalgo will make several small incisions in the abdomen and use specialized surgical instruments to remove approximately 75-80% of the stomach. The remaining portion is reshaped into a narrow sleeve or tube, which holds significantly less food compared to the original stomach. This procedure does not involve rerouting the intestines, unlike gastric bypass surgery.
Gastric sleeve surgery promotes weight loss in several ways:
Restriction: The smaller stomach restricts the amount of food that can be eaten in one sitting, leading to a feeling of fullness with smaller portions.
Hormonal changes: The surgery may also alter the hormonal signals that regulate hunger and satiety, reducing appetite and promoting a sense of fullness.
