Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery in Tijuana
Many patients want to experience the life-changing benefits of bariatric surgery but are worried about a lengthy recovery or scarring.
We provide a single incision gastric sleeve procedure in Tijuana, Mexico, to minimize scarring and reduce your discomfort during recovery.
Curious about what makes this procedure so great?
A single incision gastric sleeve only requires one small incision inside the belly button. A tiny camera is then inserted, which allows your doctor to navigate precisely without creating a large incision and scar.
Improved Surgical & Recovery Experience
Because the procedure is less invasive, you can typically expect a shorter recovery time, minimized discomfort, and reduced risk of complications. Additionally, the discreet incision leads to little to no scarring.*
Significant Weight Loss
Achieving your weight loss goals has many life-changing advantages, including boosting your self-confidence, reducing your risk of obesity-related health issues, and improving your overall health.*
Single incision gastric sleeve surgery may not be the right solution for every patient...

about Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery
Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy
Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy is a minimally invasive version of the gastric sleeve procedure that requires only one incision. While the procedure takes slightly longer, lasting about an hour, the recovery is very similar to the traditional procedure. Patients can rest assured that the doctors within the Tijuana Bariatric Center network are qualified to provide safe laparoscopic bariatric surgery. *Note: There is no guarantee of Specific Results. Results can vary for each individual.
Candidates for the Procedure
Not everyone is a candidate for SILS surgery. Your body mass index (BMI), earlier weight loss attempts, and previous surgeries all play a role in determining your candidacy for the procedure. If you have a BMI between 34 and 39, or if you have 32 BMI and as well as certain co-morbidities, you may qualify for this surgery. Your doctor can counsel you during the decision-making process to ensure that you receive the best treatment for your goals.
