The Gastric Pleat, also known as the gastric plication, is the latest in minimally invasive bariatric weight loss surgery procedures. 

Carol, a 38-year-old on-the-go business woman, decided to have gastric plication when her weight began taking a toll on her energy. Two years later Carol is high energy, eating right, and loving shopping for clothes! 

Join us as we talk with Carol about her decision to work with a surgeon and hospital outside the U.S., an experience she says she'd do again, and heartily recommends (to her husband, no less!)

Gastric plication offers some compelling benefits for patients.  It is laparoscopic, with no resection (loss of stomach tissue),  and no device to be implanted,  adjusted or removed, and an overall lower risk of complication.

Weight loss results for gastric plication consistenly outperform weight loss results with LAP-BAND.  In research, weight loss for gastric plication has been consistently comparable to the much more invasive RNY Gastric Bypass, or Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy.

Chat with Health Travel Guide Laureli about  Green Zone Gasric Plication, which offers even faster weight loss.
