Are you eating a healthy diet and exercising but still have excess weight?
Laparoscopic gastric sleeve surgery can help you achieve your weight loss goals and give you a slimmer figure.
A gastric sleeve procedure with Jet Medical Tourism® in Tijuana, Mexico, is $3,999. Learn how this bariatric surgery can improve your life.
What Is a Gastric Sleeve?
Also known as a vertical sleeve gastrectomy, gastric sleeve surgery removes about 80% of the stomach, reducing it to a tube-shaped "sleeve." A smaller stomach means patients both feel full faster and produce less hunger hormones, leading to dramatic weight loss.
Since a sleeve gastrectomy doesn't involve intestinal rerouting, it has a lower risk of complications than other bariatric surgeries, like gastric bypass surgery.
Patients generally lose up to 70% of their excess body weight within 12 to 18 months after vertical sleeve gastrectomy.
Is Gastric Sleeve Surgery Right for You?
Outside of weight, patients should be in good overall health to qualify for weight loss surgery. Good health will reduce any risks of complications from a gastric sleeve.
Ready for Dietary Changes
Before receiving a gastric sleeve, patients will have to follow a strict diet starting two weeks before their procedure. Patients will mostly eat a low-calorie diet made of vegetables and lean meats. The change in diet continues after the gastric sleeve procedure.
BMI of At Least 28
To qualify for a gastric sleeve, candidates may have a body mass index of 30 or higher. In some cases, our bariatric surgeons will accept a BMI of 28 or higher depending on weigh-related medical conditions and comorbidities.

Struggling with weight loss can be frustrating, especially if you eat healthy and keep an active lifestyle. Excess weight may not be your fault: genetics and family history play a big part in your body type and health. Gastric sleeve surgery can slim your figure and remove stubborn fat, giving you a new perspective on life.
The gastric sleeve is a popular weight loss option because it's a less invasive bariatric surgery that leads to significant long-term weight loss. If you're interested in gastric sleeve surgery, request a consultation with our surgeons in Tijuana and Nuevo Laredo today.

The Gastric Sleeve Surgery What to Expect at Our Tijuana Facility
Day of Procedure
Surgery is done laparoscopically, meaning small incisions and an easier recovery.
Maintaining Your Results
Patients can enjoy the benefits of a gastric sleeve for a lifetime if they adopt a healthy lifestyle after surgery.
Crucial to maintaining a healthy weight is adopting a nutrient-rich diet. Lean proteins, leafy vegetables, and low-calorie foods must become everyday meals. Regular exercise is also necessary to maintain a healthy weight. Our Tijuana staff will help you shape your new post-surgery lifestyle, greatly increasing the probability of maintaining a slimmer body and better health.
Alternatives to Gastric Sleeve
This surgery not only reduces the size of the stomach but it also reroutes the small intestine. These elements combined limit the amount of food that can be eaten and the number of calories the small intestine absorbs.
Mini Gastric Bypass
Similar to gastric sleeve surgery, a mini gastric bypass is a less intensive weight loss surgery and carries a lower risk of complications. Unlike most bariatric surgeries, mini gastric bypass is also reversible.

Jet Medical was very prompt in picking me up in San Diego and bringing me to the clinic. It was only a couple of hours later, I was finished with the surgery. They gave me plenty of pain meds, kept me comfortable and sent me to a hotel after 2 nights. The clinic was spotless. The nurses were great!View On Google
