The Gastric Sleeve surgery in Mexico removes around 80percent of the patients stomach thus allowing the patient to lose weight by not being hungry and feeling full faster.  The gastric sleeve surgery also removes the section of the stomach where the hunger hormone or ghrelin is released helping your body not feel hunger and helps change the way the patient may feel about food.

Benefits to the Gastric Sleeve Surgery in Mexico

Advantages and Benefits of the Procedure
- Rapid weight loss
- In most cases patients reduce their body weight by more than half in just four to six months.
- Less hunger - Because your stomach is smaller after surgery, you will become fuller quicker, feel fuller longer, and won't feel as hungry in general. The portion of your stomach that produces the Ghrelin hormone - the hunger hormone - will be eliminated and discarded during surgery.
- Safer than other weight loss treatments - Because this form of bariatric surgery removes only a portion of the stomach, there is less of a risk for infection, rejection, or other serious complications. Other weight loss treatments may require the small intestine to be cut and reattached to the stomach, but with gastric sleeve surgery, your intestines stay intact and untouched. Also, unlike the LAP-BAND® system, the sleeve doesn't require a foreign object to reside within your body in order for the treatment to be successful. The hour long procedure requires that a patient be completely committed to losing weight and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
- Revisable and convenient - the hour long procedure requires that a patient be completely committed to losing weight and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Over time, the sleeve may become stretched and could require re-tightening. A surgical revision is a simple procedure and can easily be performed by a certified bariatric professional like Dr. Hidalgo or Dr. Parra.
