Dr. Alberto Aceves
Weight Loss Surgery in Mexico like the Gastric Sleeve, Gastric Bypass, Duodenal Switch, Revision Surgery and the Lap Band, grows for cost conscious Americans
My staff and I take great pride in our hospital,
Almater Hospital; it is a modern, state-of-the-art medical facility by all standards that reaps nothing but compliments and admiration. It is likely that if you go through a surgical weight loss procedure, it will be a successful one. However, this procedure only begins your overall goal of weight management.
I, along with my staff, will be available to assist you in your journey toward reaching your desired weight for life. I remain in touch with my patients because it is their success that means more to me than simply seeing that their surgery was successfully performed. In finding a total solution to your surgical weight management you should look to other factors: such as the hospital facilities, and cost consideration without compromising the surgeon's credentials. When you sum it up, it will be clear who the right
surgeon for you is, and you will make the right decision.

Types of Weight Loss Surgeries
There are several types of restrictive and combined operations that lead to rapid weight loss. Each one has its own benefits and risks. 

Restrictive Weight Loss Surgeries
Purely restrictive operations only limit food intake and do not interfere with the normal digestive process. To perform the operation, doctors create a small pouch at the top of the stomach where food enters from the esophagus. At first, the pouch holds about 1 ounce of food and later may stretch to 2-3 ounces. The lower outlet of the pouch is usually about ¾ inch in diameter or smaller. This small outlet delays the emptying of food from the pouch into the larger part of the stomach and causes a feeling of fullness, thus resulting in rapid weight loss in most patients. After the operation, patients can no longer eat large amounts of food at one time. Most patients can eat about ¾ to 1 cup of food without discomfort or nausea, but the food has to be soft, moist, and well chewed. Patients who undergo restrictive procedures generally are not able to eat as much as those who have combined operations.

Gastric Bypass Surgery
Gastric Bypass - The Digestive Process

To better understand how the gastric bypass weight-loss surgery works, it is helpful to know how the normal digestive process works. As food moves along the digestive tract, special digestive juices and enzymes arrive at the right place at the right time to digest food and absorb calories and nutrients. After we chew and swallow our food, it moves down the esophagus to the stomach, where a strong acid and powerful enzymes continue the digestive process. The stomach can hold about three pints of food at one time. Food is slowly released into the small intestine where absorption of the nutrients, vitamins and minerals takes place. The rate at which foods and fluids are released into the small intestines is controlled by a sphincter on the outlet of the stomach. Empty time can be over several hours.
Procedures Bariatric operations currently performed include gastric restriction (vertical banded gastroplasty; laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding), malabsorption (biliopancreatic diversion; biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch), or both (Roux-en-Y gastric bypass). Two of the most commonly performed bariatric surgeries are the laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding procedure and the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass.
Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass Surgery
The most common bariatric surgery procedure performed in the United States, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) combines a restrictive and malabsorptive procedures. A small (15-30 cc) gastric pouch is created to restrict food intake and a Roux-en-Y gastrojejunostomy provides the mild malabsorptive component. Bariatric surgeons can perform the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass procedure using minimally invasive surgical techniques. The advantages of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass include superior weight loss when compared to vertical banded gastroplasty, with excellent long-term weight reduction and resolution or elimination of co-morbidities (80 percent resolution of Type II diabetes after surgery). Early and late complication rates are reasonably low, and operative mortality ranges from 0.2 percent to 1 percent. Disadvantages of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass include the potential for anastomotic leaks and strictures, severe dumping syndrome symptoms and procedure-specific complications, including distension of the excluded stomach and internal hernias. Roux-en-Y gastric bypass is technically more challenging to perform than the restrictive procedures, particularly when using the laparoscopic approach. In experienced hands, the conversion rate of laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass to open is 5 percent.
