Gastric Sleeve

If you are trying to find the right gastric sleeve for you, you may be unsure of where to look. Are you currently dealing with weight-related problems and obesity? If so, you may be searching for a reliable team of medical professionals who can help you reach your goals. Make sure you invest in the right group of professionals by choosing The Shape You Want. Our team is ready to work with you to develop a unique plan that will lead to long-term weight loss.

Gastric sleeve surgery is a great way to help you lose weight and begin the journey towards living a healthier lifestyle. This procedure involves reducing the stomach’s size and capacity by 70-80%. The result is a much smaller, slender organ that resembles the shape of a banana. Undergoing this surgery will reduce the patient’s stomach capacity. In turn, he or she will be able to experience an easier time avoiding overeating. Investing in this surgery will help you feel full much quicker when consuming a meal. In turn, this will help you gradually you lose weight over time.

At The Shape You Want, our surgeons take things a step further by offering our patients an inverted gastric sleeve surgery. Near the conclusion of the surgery, we invert the staple line and begin suturing the outer cover of the stomach. This added step provides the patient’s internal organ with an additional layer of protection. It helps prevent leaks after surgery, and it will also help the stomach stay intact and avoid stretching out in the event of overeating. The use of serosa (the strongest part of the stomach) helps the sleeve retain its form. This leads to very effective long-term benefits for the patient.

Bariatric Surgery in Monterrey

This surgery is performed laparoscopically and involves only four tiny incisions. We encourage patients to keep their movement levels very light and avoid strenuous exercises and activities. Hobbies such as weightlifting and other forms of strenuous work should be avoided for about a month. In most cases, you will be able to return to work and resume most aspects of your usual lifestyle after one week of recovery.

Our medical team is led by board certified bariatric surgeon Francisco J. Barrera Rodriguez. Dr. Barrera received his medical degree from the University of Monterrey. After graduating with honors from the General Surgery Residence Program, he has been able to transform countless lives with his weight loss surgery solutions. With over a decade of experience and more than 7,500 successful surgeries completed, you can trust Dr. Barrera to help you live a healthier life.

Gastric sleeve procedures can be very effective, but you’re going to need to make long-term changes to your lifestyle to truly reap the benefits of this surgery. This is perfect for people who suffer from obesity and weight-related health issues. However, you’re going to need to prepare to make dietary changes and incorporate exercise into your daily life. These two things will tremendously help you avoid regaining the weight you lose. Making them part of your lifestyle will allow you to reclaim your health and experience healthy living for years to come.
