Gastric bypass Tijuana

VIVE BARIATRIC

Gastric Bypass is one of the most effective procedures of weight-loss surgery.  

 

In this procedure, the surgeon reduces the size of the stomach, making a shortcut to the intestines. The smaller stomach makes the patient feel less hunger and reduces the area for food absorption to the body.

 

Also, this surgery reduces the production of ghrelin, the so-called hunger hormone, responsible for the feeling of hunger.

 

As a result of the surgery, the patient will feel satisfied faster, eating less food, and absorbing fewer calories.

 

The goal is to reduce the amount of food that the patient eat and the fat or carbs that the body receives, improving the lives of persons with obesity.

  • The doctors perform the procedure with general anesthesia, which means that the patient will remain asleep during the surgery.

 

  • The surgeon will use Laparoscopic Surgery, which means that he/she will practice the operation using a small TV camera, and instruments operated from the outside the body, with no large incisions.

 

  • For inserting the laparoscope and instruments, the surgeon will make five or six incisions on the abdominal area.

 

  • Each incision is lesser than a centimeter, and most of them will remain hidden in the natural folds of the body.

 

  • The laparoscope is a tiny camera with the size of a pencil, that allows the doctor to operate with no large incisions.

 

  • The doctor will create a small pouch in the patient’s stomach using titanium staples. 

 

  • After that, the surgeon will cut a portion of the duodenum to connect it to your new stomach.

 

  • Regularly, it will be necessary the use of drains that eliminate the excess of fluids during the healing process.
