21 November, 2022

For many people, the gastric sleeve in Tijuana is synonymous with hope, life, and health. Especially after the covid-19 pandemic, many have reconsidered their priorities. Now they value their lives more and seek different ways to care for their health.

For example, some try to lose weight through strict diets and exercise routines, often without obtaining the expected results. If that’s your case, you’ve surely noticed that losing a single pound can sometimes become a real challenge.

But what if they told you that there is a fast, cheap, but above all, safe method? We invite you to discover why gastric sleeve surgery can be the definitive solution to your overweight problems.

Reasons to choose a gastric sleeve in Tijuana

Thanks to the advances in modern medicine, weight loss surgery in Mexico has a wide range of options, and without a doubt, the gastric sleeve is one of the most demanded procedures. This form of stomach reduction offers excellent advantages over other alternatives, and it is not for nothing that it is recognized as the definitive weight loss surgery.

The following are some reasons to choose a gastric sleeve in Tijuana:

  1. Fast and permanent weight loss
  2. An extraordinarily successful and safe procedure
  3. Low rate of complications
  4. Quick recovery after the intervention
  5. Substantial improvement in diseases related to overweight and obesity
  6. Incredible economic benefits
  7. Fascinating tourist destinations

  • Fast and permanent weight loss

Because the part of the stomach that produces the hormone ghrelin (hunger hormone) is removed, patients lose, on average, 30.5% of their total body weight one year after surgery, according to reports from the world registry of the International Federation for the Surgery of Obesity and Metabolic Disorders (IFSO).

Although the number of pounds a patient can lose will depend on several factors, such as their preoperative body mass index (BMI) or eating habits after surgery, most patients lose more than 50% of their excess weight. It should be noted that some have managed to lose up to 100% of excess body weight in 12 months.

  • Extraordinarily successful and safe procedure

Currently, gastric sleeve in Tijuana is performed laparoscopically, a minimally invasive alternative to conventional open surgery, which has significantly reduced the number of risks and complications, as well as hospitalization and recovery times.

According to experts, the success rate of gastric sleeve surgery is over 92%. When someone chooses this fantastic option through HW Bazaar, the chances can increase, thanks to the fact that we have a team of surgeons who follow the highest medical protocols to guarantee a successful and, above all, safe procedure for your health.

  • Low complication rate

Unlike other bariatric surgeries (weight loss surgery) such as gastric bypass or gastric balloon, the gastric sleeve does not modify the digestive system or introduce foreign elements such as silicones. As a result, this method avoids additional complications such as the following:

  • Nutritional deficiencies, since it does not alter the absorption of nutrients in the digestive system.
  • Intestinal obstructions.
  • Dumping syndrome (emptying or rapid evacuation syndrome.)

Of course, like any surgical intervention, it carries certain risks. Currently, its complication rate is between 0.5 and 2% of cases, a percentage comparable to other digestive procedures such as hiatal hernia or gallbladder surgery.

Before starting your treatment, we recommend you look at the following article: What are the side effects of the gastric sleeve? This way, you can make an informed decision based on full knowledge of the process, what to expect, and the pros and cons.

  • Quick recovery after the intervention

Gastric sleeve surgery takes about 90 minutes, and your hospital stay is usually one to two days. Depending on the particular conditions of each patient, the recovery period can vary between 7 and 10 days.

Once you have crossed this barrier, you can lead an utterly everyday life as long as you follow your surgeon’s recommendations. These can be maintaining a diet according to the new size of your stomach, taking your medications and vitamin supplements, and engaging in regular physical activity.

  • Substantial improvement in diseases related to overweight and obesity

Living with being overweight and obese harms every organ and system in the body. However, if we attack the root problem, these conditions and diseases can improve progressively.

Thanks to the gastric sleeve in Tijuana, patients can experience multiple benefits that allow them to enjoy a better quality of life:

  • Reduces the risk of strokes and heart attacks
  • Facilitates breathing in patients with obstructive sleep apnea
  • Reduces the risk of some types of cancer
  • Relieves joint pain
  • Helps fight diabetes; on average, 39% of patients who underwent gastric sleeve no longer needed medication to control their diabetes after one year of surgery, according to the 2019 global registry report
  • Improves hypertension levels (high blood pressure); it is estimated that 57.2% of patients diagnosed with arterial hypertension stop requiring their medications one year after the intervention
  • Approximately 85% of patients with NAFLD show marked improvement after sleeve gastric-induced weight loss
  • Increases fertility
  • Corrects a large part of the symptoms of polycystic ovary syndrome in female patients

Why choose weight loss surgery?

Although the gastric sleeve is one of Mexico’s most successful weight loss surgeries, it is not considered a magical solution against obesity. However, we are sure that effort, perseverance, and self-esteem make it possible to achieve extraordinary results.
