Gastric Sleeve Plication Surgery in Mexico - Jacqueline Osuna

Gastric Sleeve Plication in Mexico

Gastric Plication is a new surgery in which the stomach is not cut. With over 15 years of experience in bariatrics, Dr. Osuna is one of the first surgeons in Mexico to perform this procedure.

Gastric Sleeve PlicationGastric Plication, or Greater Curvature Plication (LGCP), is a simple, promising, and less invasive weight loss procedure performed laparoscopically. Like a Gastric sleeve, it is a restrictive procedure that reduces the size of the stomach and limits food intake. Unlike gastric bypass, it does not bypass the intestines and does not decrease the absorption of nutrients.

The Laparoscopic Gastric Plication procedure involves making five or six small incisions in the abdomen using a video camera (laparoscope) and long instruments placed through these small incisions. The next step in this technique is to liberate the stomach from its succession. A French tube is passed through the mouth into the stomach for precise calibration. The first folding is on the outer edge of the stomach with non-absorbable sutures. The second fold reduces the size of the stomach to almost 85% of its original volume.
