About gastric sleeve procedure in Monterrey

Sleeve gastrectomy, better known as “Gastric Sleeve” is a surgery in which 85% of the stomach is cut and extracted from the abdomen. This allows weight to be lost through 2 mechanisms, mainly: Restrictive and Hormonal.


  • Restrictive: due to the section of the stomach, the gastric capacity will be modified between 70 and 90 ml approximately, this will make the portions you can eat drastically decrease and thus initiate the change of your eating habits, which will offer positive long-term results.
  • Hormonal: By extracting the stomach, the production of the hormone Ghrelin, which is responsible for producing appetite, is reduced by 95%, thus decreasing the appetite and the anxiety to eat.


Duration of gastric sleeve surgery

The surgery lasts approximately 60 minutes.

How is it performed?

Laparoscopic procedures are minimally invasive. This method uses several small incisions, instead of a large incision like in a traditional surgery.

Then, fiber optic video cameras and specialized instruments are used to carry out the procedure through these small incisions. This approach offers many advantages such as:

  • Reduced recovery time.
  • Less scars.
  • Less discomfort or pain.
  • Return faster to normal activities.

Who can be a candidate for a gastric sleeve?

To find out whether you are a candidate or not, it is necessary to calculate your BMI (Body Mass Index), if your BMI is in the Obesity range and you have also struggled on losing weight despite of trying diets and exercise, I kindly invite you to watch the video of this campaign, where it is explained in a very didactic way the reason why it becomes increasingly difficult to lose weight, and why bariatric surgery offers an effective and safe alternative to combat obesity.

Surgery is usually considered when your body mass index (BMI) is 40 or more. But also, it can be an option when your BMI is 35 if you have a life-threatening or incapacitating problem related to your weight.
