Gastric sleeve Mexico
Bariatrics is the branch of medicine that studies the causes, prevention, and treatment of obesity and metabolic disorders.
Bariatric surgery is a procedure that helps people lose weight by making changes to their digestive system; the most common procedures are: Gastric bypass, Adjustable Gastric Band, and Intragastric Balloon.
Obesity has become a rising concern in North America because its health effects cause diseases such as high blood pressure, gastroesophageal reflux disease, diabetes, gallbladder disease, gout, cancer, asthma, obstructive sleep apnea, and chronic musculoskeletal problems.
With the aim of losing weight, obese people try several diets, exercises and other non-surgical treatments without success and in consequence, their health deteriorates. This is because on many occasions they cannot exercise due to the intense pain in the knees or hips caused by the overweight. If this is your case, it is time to analyze a different option so you can reach your weight goals.
During the initial consultation, we encourage our clients to have an open dialogue with our surgeons to discuss all their fears and expectations. Sometimes the expectations may not be realistic and our surgeons’ philosophy is to prioritize your physical well-being.
Health & Wellness Bazaar is a network of talented and experienced bariatric surgeons who perform the most advanced and innovative procedures to treat obesity and metabolic disorders.

Types of bariatric surgery
Gastric sleeve in Mexico
Gastric Sleeve is a surgery in which approximately 85% of the stomach is removed. This surgery is done laparoscopically; at this procedure, the surgeon removes part of the stomach through tiny incisions around the abdominal area. The portion of the stomach that is left takes the shape of a sleeve, reducing the amount of food a person can consume. The stomach will still be connected to the small intestine, so nutrients will be absorbed as food is digested.
Gastric sleeve is extremely effective at reducing the feeling of hunger because ghrelin is removed. By having this part of the stomach removed, a person feels satisfied eating less food. There are many advantages for undergoing Gastric sleeve. First of all, this procedure does not affect the intestinal tract. Secondly, it results in a quick weight loss. Above all, this procedure is safer than other weight loss surgeries because there is less risk of infection, rejection, or other complications.

This procedure is done laparoscopically with five small incisions in the abdomen, it makes the stomach smaller so the food the person eats no longer goes into some parts of the stomach; instead, it is the small intestine that absorbs food.
