Gastric Plication Gastric plication is a form of bariatric surgical
weight loss surgery performed laparoscopy lee, which means smaller incisions, faster
healing time, and reduced chance of complications. Similar to a laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy or gastric
bypass, gastric plication reduces the amount of food that a person can eat at one sitting.
A restrictive procedure, gastric plication, like other forms of bariatric surgery, reduces
the overall size of the stomach. Gastric Plication Procedure
The gastric plication procedure involves folding the stomach to create a long, thin tube. This
folding reduces the overall size of the stomach by about 70%. During the procedure, the stomach
is folded over lengthwise, and sutured into place, creating a tubular structure. The small
intestine is also left alone where it connects to the stomach, offering full and normal digestive
function, breakdown of foods and nutrients, as well as absorption of nutrients by the
small intestine. How Much Does Gastric Plication Cost?
Patients wishing to receive the gastric plication procedure in the U.S. are required to pay
for it themselves. However, individuals wishing to travel to other countries where the procedure
has been approved, such as Mexico, may enjoy the benefits of reduced costs in relation
to the procedure. Locations in Mexico offer medical traveler’s savings of between
50% and 75% on the costs of the same surgical procedures performed in the United States.
