Dr. Ismael Cabrera discusses the eligibility of Gastric Sleeve:
Practically we recommend this surgery to everyone who is obese except the patient who has lots of esophagus reflux and esophagus damage. For those patients, the best option is gastric bypass.
Dr. Ismael Cabrera is skilled at performing the gastric sleeve surgery (vertical sleeve gastrectomy). Dr. Cabrera has performed hundreds of sleeve surgeries laparoscopically. We at Mexico Bariatric Center currently have the lowest price for gastric sleeve in Mexico.
Over the years, Dr. Cabrera has some of the lowest infection rates available. Dr. Cabrera is also very empathetic and driven to the patient’s success.
Gastric Sleeve Surgery
Gastric Sleeve Surgery, otherwise known as vertical sleeve gastrectomy, is a weight loss surgery that induces weight loss by restricting the size of the stomach while reducing one’s appetite. Dr. Cabrera performs this procedure laparoscopically, removing as much as 85% of the stomach, leaving the stomach an approximate size of 4 oz.
The smaller stomach size forces patients to consume fewer calories. This smaller consumption is further fueled by the reduction in the hunger hormone, ghrelin. Ghrelin, otherwise known as Growth Hormone Release Inducing, is an amino acid that induces the feels of appetite. By reducing the size of the stomach, the ghrelin hormone is reduced, which allows appetite to be reduced. This very powerful, simple procedure is a lifetime approach to weight loss and obesity. If you have trouble not losing weight after gastric sleeve surgery, there may be a problem with post-op.
Dr. Cabrera uses a bougie to guide the cutting and stapling of the gastric sleeve surgery. The tool is inserted into the patient’s mouth and goes down through the esophagus. The bougie size that Dr. Cabrera uses is 34F or .40 inches in diameter.
