Dramatic Results

with Fewer Complications*


Significant Weight Loss

Although the results are not typically as dramatic as other types of bariatric procedures, this surgery can help patients lose up to 30 to 55 percent of excess weight. Losing weight can improve your overall health.


Revisable Surgery

Gastric sleeve plication does not remove or reorganize any portion of the digestive tract. As a result, it is much easier to revise or even reverse the outcome if there are unwanted side effects or the results do not satisfy the patient’s goals or needs.


Lower Risk

Using biocompatible sutures significantly reduces the possibility of both rejection and infection. Additionally, the body's ability to absorb calories is not compromised, so there is a considerably lower risk of nutritional deficiency.

The majority of patients do not experience any severe complications*...

A Very Safe Procedure


Is this type of bariatric surgery the right weight loss solution for you?

Gastric Sleeve Plication Surgery

Is Recommended for Patients Who Have::


Not Had Success with Diet & Exercise

Surgeons typically only recommend weight loss surgery for patients who have previously tried to lose weight through diet and exercise, with little to no success.


A BMI over 34

Patients with a BMI (body mass index) over 34 or a BMI of 32 with co-morbidities are considered the best candidates, but those with lower or higher BMIs have reported satisfying outcomes, as well.*


Weight-Related Health Conditions

In addition, if you suffer from any weight-related health issues, like obstructive sleep apnea or type 2 diabetes, gastric sleeve plication surgery can help to alleviate your symptoms.*

Once you are cleared for weight loss surgery, here is what you can expect...

4 Steps

to a Healthier You



You will arrive at the state-of-the-art hospital, which is equipped with a cafeteria, recovery room and sofa bed, internet, and safety deposit boxes in every room.



On the day of surgery, you will be given general anesthesia to help you slip into unconsciousness while the surgeon performs the laparoscopic procedure.



Through several small incisions, the bariatric surgeon will create an internal fold in the stomach, reducing its capacity by 75 percent.



Once your incisions are sutured, you will return to your recovery room for monitoring. Most patients are ready to go home within one or two days of the procedure.
