Gastric Plication Surgery in Mexico

Gastric Plication surgery, or pseudo sleeve surgery, is similar to the Gastric Sleeve in that it creates a smaller stomach and restricts the amount of food that a patient eats. The big difference between the Gastric Sleeve surgery and the Gastric Plication surgery in Mexico is that with the Gastric Plication, the stomach is rolled up and sewed in on itself in a wrap rather than with the Gastric Sleeve, where Dr. Hidalgo actually removes about 80% of the stomach. The gastric plication is not that successful, but it can help the patient feel fuller when eating, as the stomach area has been greatly reduced through the wrapping process and ideally a patient that does not eat as much tends to lose weight.
