Gastric Sleeve Plication
THE LATEST INNOVATION IN WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY
Successfully Slimmer, LLC is proud to announce that we now offer you the newest advancement in weight loss surgery - Gastric Sleeve Plication. The procedure is currently performed in limited clinical trial in the United States. Many bariatric surgeons are calling it the most exciting advancement in weight loss surgery since adjustable gastric banding.
The Gastric Plication is a version of the more popular Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy surgery where a "sleeve" is created by suturing rather than removing stomach tissue.
What makes Gastric Sleeve Plication a wonderful new weight loss option is that stomach restriction is carried out with the use of pure, non-absorbable sutures. This means that the stomach is only capable of holding smaller amounts of food without any removal of the stomach and without any foreign implants. Plication does not impair patient's dietary habits.
Early patient data demonstrates weight loss results similar to gastric bypass.
The surgery is currently being offered at the introductory rate of $5,000. The all-inclusive medical travel package includes all hospital, doctor, and surgeon fees, standard lab work, hospital stay, recovery facility stay, round trip ground transportation from airport, and any pre-surgery consults needed.

What to Expect After Surgery
Patients can return to normal activities in 1 to 2 weeks and should not lift, push or pull anything heavier then 25 lbs. for 4 to 6 weeks.

Patients will still need to avoid sweets, junk foods, high calorie beverages and should incorporate exercise daily. During the first 1 to 2 years after surgery, patient's usually consume 600 to 800 calories a day. Once goal weight is achieved, most patients are able to eat about 1000 to 1200 calories a day.
