Understanding Gastric Plication
In this bariatric procedure the stomach is folded upon itself and secured with stitches, resulting in a significant reduction in its food holding capacity. The patient feels full after consuming a small amount of food, eats less, and consequently starts to shed weight.
This procedure is performed laparoscopically, which means the surgical wounds are going to be small and they will heal quickly.
Are there any Risks?
As with any other surgery, there are some standard risks associated with gastric plication surgery, which can be minimized by carefully choosing the facility and the surgeon and closely following the doctor’s post-op instructions.
Some risks are:
- Some people have nausea and vomiting, or in some cases, difficulty in swallowing
- The stitched area might get separated and this might require redo surgery
- Leakage from the surgical site also requires revisional surgery
