Dr. Louisiana Valenzuela, along with her assistant surgeon Dr. Ismael Cabrera, can perform Gastric Sleeve Plication laparoscopically.
Gastric Plication Surgery
Gastric Plication, also known as gastric sleeve plication, is a reversible weight loss surgery that is similar to gastric sleeve surgery. Gastric Plication uses the same surgical technique as gastric sleeve surgery yet is very different.
Using restrictive technique, gastric sleeve plication, reduces the stomach capacity by folding the stomach into itself with no-dissovable sutures. The procedure is reversible unlike gastric sleeve, which can be seen as an advantage.
Although the studies suggesting the expected weight loss is comparable to gastric sleeve surgery, gastric plication is still a very new surgical procedure. Many patients will opt for the plication because the results are somewhat precarious or uncertain.
Undergoing Gastric Plication in Mexico
Despite the number of bariatric surgery centers in the United States, only a handful of surgeons and facilities practice this surgery. Dr. Cabrera and Dr. Valenzuela both practice the surgery and charge just a fraction of what other surgeons in Mexico charge.
