Gastric Plication

In bariatric surgery (obesity surgery), is one of the most innovative weight loss procedures.

Gastric PlicationIt consists of suturing the left edge of the stomach on itself to create folds occupying the inside of the stomach and thus reduce the volume.

Basically the procedure is performed laparoscopically , which means that instead of making a large incision in the abdomen, the surgeon makes small incisions through which passes a camera and specially designed instruments for this surgery.

These instruments allow the surgeon to make very precise operations, which is less traumatic for the patient.

The laparoscopic technique allows a faster recovery, reducing the chances of complications and post-operative discomfort to the patient.

Operation can get to take an hour to an hour and a half.

The stomach will no longer support the same amount of food as before and satiety appear much more early.
