Weight Loss Surgery Options in Mexico

Gastric Sleeve (VSG)

Long narrow vertical pouch (about 2-3 oz or 60-100cc) is created by removing roughly 80% of the stomach. Same shape as the duodenal switch pouch but smaller.

No intestinal bypass is required. The vertical sleeve gastrectomy significantly restricts the volume of food that can be eaten thus allow patients to eat less calories. Gastric Sleeve is a permanent solution that is quickly growing in demand.

Gastric Band (Lap-Band®)

The Lap-Band is an adjustable silicone ring (implant) that is placed around the top part of the stomach creating a small (1-2 ounce or 15-30cc) pouch. The Lap-Band system moderately restricts the volume and type of foods the patient is able consume.

The Band delays emptying of the pouch and creates the sensation of satiety (fullness) that forces the patient to consume less calories. In the U.S., Lap-Band and Gastric Bypass are two of the most common weight loss surgeries.

Gastric Bypass

The RnY gastric bypass significantly restricts the volume of food that can be eaten by using two techniques: restrictive and malabsorptive.  This combination allows gastric bypass to provide high expected weight loss. The new stomach that is created is the restrictive component, while the malabsorptive technique is the rerouting of the small intestines.

Small pouch (about 1 ounce/20-30cc) is created by stapling off a new stoma. Pouch is connected to the small intestine where food and digestive juices are separated for the first 3 to 5 feet.

Gastric Sleeve Plication

Gastric Sleeve Plication or Sleeve Plication. Sleeve Plication is a procedure that can produce comparable expected weight loss to other bariatric surgeries, especially sleeve plication. Gastric Sleeve Plication is a procedure that is reversible, it uses sutures to reduce the capacity of the stomach, thus producing a feeling of fullness sooner.

Gastric Plication is quickly becoming a major alternative to gastric sleeve and gastric banding, for its ability to be revised and reversed.

Duodenal Switch Surgery

Duodenal Switch is a procedure reserved for only morbidly obese patients. Duodenal Switch provides higher expected weight loss than even gastric bypass surgery, patients can lose between 60-80% of their excess weight compared with 50-75% for the gastric bypass.

Duodenal Switch is a procedure which combines malabsorptive and restrictive properties, which provides patients will the best possible chance to lose weight. Duodenal Switch is a complicated surgery, review our guide to this powerful surgery.
