What is the Single Incision Gastric Sleeve?

Single Incision Gastric Sleeve (SIGS) surgery in Mexico stands as a testament to the latest advancements in bariatric medicine, tailored specifically for those seeking a significant and sustainable weight loss solution. This procedure is conducted through a solitary, small incision typically camouflaged within the navel, drastically minimizing any visible scarring and enhancing the cosmetic outcome.

Performed by a team of certified bariatric surgeons, each with a wealth of experience and training in minimally invasive techniques, SIGS in Mexico offers an ideal combination of expert care and advanced medical practices. Our facilities are accredited and equipped with the latest technology, ensuring every patient receives the highest standard of safety and efficiency during their procedure.

Beyond the technical aspects of the surgery, our comprehensive care approach includes pre-operative education, a tailored surgery plan, and extensive post-operative support. This includes nutritional counseling and lifestyle adaptation support to ensure patients not only lose weight but also embrace a healthier lifestyle for long-term maintenance.

Choosing SIGS in Mexico not only means receiving top-tier medical care but also enjoying the benefits of recovery in a tranquil, beautiful setting. With cost-effective pricing structures, Mexico provides an appealing option for patients globally, combining world-class surgical care with the allure of a vacation-like recovery experience.

Single Incision Gastric Sleeve Benefits

  • Minimized Scarring: Since the procedure is performed through a single small incision, usually hidden in the belly button, it results in minimal scarring, which is cosmetically preferable for many patients.

  • Reduced Pain Post-Operation: The minimally invasive nature of the surgery tends to result in less post-operative pain compared to traditional surgeries that require multiple incisions.

  • Faster Recovery: Patients often experience a quicker recovery period, allowing them to return to their daily activities sooner than with traditional gastric sleeve surgery.

  • Decreased Risk of Complications: The fewer incisions made, the lower the risk of surgical complications such as infections or hernias, contributing to a safer overall procedure.

  • Effective Weight Loss: Like traditional gastric sleeve surgery, SIGS effectively reduces stomach capacity by about 80%, helping patients achieve significant and sustained weight loss.

  • Improved Comorbid Conditions: Weight loss from SIGS can lead to improvements in obesity-related conditions such as type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and sleep apnea.

  • Enhanced Self-Esteem and Quality of Life: The significant weight loss and improved appearance due to minimal scarring can greatly enhance self-esteem and overall quality of life.

  • Shorter Hospital Stay: The efficiency and minimally invasive nature of SIGS often mean a shorter hospital stay, reducing medical costs and the overall impact on the patient’s life.

  • No Impact on Nutrient Absorption: Since the procedure only involves the stomach and does not bypass any part of the small intestine, there is no impact on the absorption of nutrients, which is a significant benefit over other types of bariatric surgery.

  • Motivation for Lifestyle Changes: The physical changes post-surgery can provide a strong motivational boost for patients to maintain a healthy lifestyle, including diet and exercise, to sustain weight loss.

"Well, I’ve been bustin’ my britches working on my weight loss journey since my surgery a month ago, and let me tell y’all, Dr. Verboonen and his team are as good as grits! Sometimes we get our wires crossed with the language, but they treat me better than I ever got treated back home. Dr. Verboonen is like the neighbor who’s always there with a helping hand, cheering me on, never letting me lose heart. Feels like he’s practically family now, watching over my progress. Thinking about shedding some pounds? Don’t just sit on your porch swing—mosey on over to Dr. Sergio Verboonen at his Obesity Good Bye Center in Tijuana. You’ll be saying ‘howdy’ to a brand-new you faster than a hen on a June bug! Give 'em a call and start your own success story. Tell 'em I sent you and get ready for a hearty welcome!"

"Lord have mercy, where do I even start? Before I met Dr. Jeffry Romero and the fine folks at Bariatric Mexico in Cabo San Lucas, I felt like I was fighting a losing battle with my weight. But honey, let me tell you, that all changed the day I decided to take a leap of faith and head on down to Mexico. Dr. Romero, he's been nothing short of a blessing. Not just a doctor, but a true guardian angel. And his team? Sweet as peach pie, every single one of them. They took such good care of me, made me feel right at home, even though I was miles away from Tennessee. Since my surgery, it's like I've been given a brand new lease on life. I’ve shed the weight that's been holding me down for years, and I’m enjoying things I never thought I could again—like hiking through our beautiful Smoky Mountains with ease, or chasing my grandbabies around the yard without getting winded. So, from the bottom of my heart, I just wanna say thank you to Dr. Romero and everyone at Bariatric Mexico. Y'all changed my life, and I’m forever grateful. If you’re out there wondering if it’s worth it, believe me, it is. Give them a call, and maybe soon you’ll be feeling top-notch, just like me!"!"
