Mexico Weight Loss Surgery

Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Gastric Sleeve Surgery – Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (VSG) surgery is a restrictive procedure that reduces the stomach capacity 85%, which allows patients to combat obesity effective. Gastric surgery, such as gastric sleeve, reduces the patient’s set-point and the patient has more energy, feels less hunger and craves for less fatty food.

Gastric Bypass Surgery

Gastric Bypass Surgery – RNY Gastric Bypass surgery is both a restrictive and malabsorptive procedure that provides high expected weight loss. Mini Gastric Bypass (MGB), single anastomsis bypass, is gaining popularity. Dr. V is specialized in RNY GB and MGB.

Duodenal Switch

Duodenal Switch – Duodenal switch is a restrictive and malabsorptive procedure that produces the highest expected weight loss of all weight loss surgeries. Because of the powerfulness of the procedure, Duodenal Switch is reserved for morbidly obese patients.

Sleeve Plication Surgery

Gastric Sleeve Plication – Gastric Sleeve Plication, otherwise known as Gastric Plication, is a restrictive weight loss procedure which is completely reversible. Gastric Sleeve Plication is an experimental weight loss procedure which has not been very effective.


Revision Procedures – Dr. Louisiana Valenzuela can perform a host of bariatric surgery revisions that allow patients to change an existing bariatric surgery or to upgrade the procedure. One of the most common revision surgeries including:

  • Lap-Band to Gastric Sleeve
  • Re-Sleeve (Undergoing gastric sleeve again to tighten the sleeve)
  • Gastric Sleeve to Duodenal Switch
  • Vertical Banded Gastroplasty (VBG) to Sleeve, Bypass or mini-bypass
  • Gastric Bypass to Gastric Bypass Revision

Gastric Banding Surgery

Gastric Banding Surgery – Gastric banding surgery, otherwise known under the brand names: Lap-Band and REALIZE system, is a restrictive procedure that creates a small pouch on the upper portion of the stomach which reduces food intake. Although we list this procedure, Dr. Valenzuela no longer recommends this bariatric surgery due to complications and unnecessary risks. Patients should consider gastric sleeve surgery, as the best alternative.
