Gastric Sleeve Tijuana

If you are carrying around excess weight, you likely understand the toll it takes on your life. Extra pounds can negatively impact your self-image, and any previous failed attempts at getting your weight under control can undoubtedly chip away at your confidence. Additionally, being overweight or obese can impact your health and ability to live a fulfilling life. Our surgeons have an in-depth understanding of these issues and more; their extensive training and dedication to their craft allow our surgeons to achieve the best results possible for each patient. Our doctors perform gastric sleeve surgery to help patients finally shed weight, once and for all.


Also known as sleeve gastrectomy, the gastric sleeve is a type of bariatric surgery intended to help patients lose weight. It involves the removal of approximately 80% of the stomach, effectively reducing it to a smaller size with a sleeve-like shape.

Reducing the size of the stomach naturally restricts patients from consuming large amounts of food. However, this procedure also decreases stomach hunger-causing hormones. Patients find that they are able to better control their appetites, feel fuller longer, and reduce food cravings after treatment.

Ideal Candidate

Gastric sleeve surgery treats obesity, and it is also effective at improving conditions related to the disease, such as type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, hypertension, and joint pain. To determine your candidacy, you will meet with our team for a consultation. One of our surgeons will evaluate your medical history and address any questions you have about the procedure. In general, candidates:

Suffer from obesity: Obesity is determined by your body mass index (BMI). Severe obesity is a qualifier for gastric sleeve surgery.

Have not succeeded in previous attempts to lose weight: If you have repeatedly tried to lose weight in the past without success, gastric sleeve surgery can give you the boost you need to finally get the weight off. You may also be a candidate if you have managed to lose weight but cannot keep it off (yo-yo dieting or weight cycling).

Are prepared for a lifestyle change: Gastric sleeve surgery can be considered a fresh start in managing your health. It is an effective procedure, but it requires commitment from the patient to adhere to the recovery process and the lifestyle changes that must occur following the procedure.


Following your gastric sleeve procedure, you may initially feel fatigued; this is normal as your body will need to adjust to the decrease in calories consumed. In the first two weeks, you will need to stick to a liquid diet before being able to tolerate a more standard diet, including solid foods. After about one month, you should start to feel more like yourself.


Our exceptional team of surgeons will provide you with detailed instructions for taking care of yourself after your gastric sleeve surgery. This will include a dietary plan. Immediately after surgery and for the first few weeks, you will need to follow the dietary restrictions to support healing. In the months following your procedure, you may be able to consume a more regular diet, but you will still need to make wise food choices. You will not be able to consume as much food as before, so you will need to ensure the foods you choose are healthy and full of nutrients.
