Gastric plication is a new bariatric procedure fairly similar to the gastric sleeve. It involves folding the stomach into a sleeve or a pouch which reduces your normal food intake. Unlike other surgeries in this field, it does not involve the removal of a part of the stomach and it does not rearrange any part of the intestines.
After recovery your compulsion to eat will be lessened and your appetite will be satisfied with lower amounts of food. This in turn enables you to lose weight at a faster rate and helps you to push towards a healthier lifestyle. Find out if this is the right procedure for you.
