Bariatric Surgery

Weight Loss Surgeries

Gastric Sleeve

The gastric sleeve, also known as sleeve gastrectomy, is a surgical weight loss procedure in which approximately 80% of the stomach is removed. This results in a tube-shaped or "sleeve" stomach, limiting the amount of food that can be consumed and promoting a quicker feeling of fullness.

Gastric Bypass

Gastric bypass is a bariatric surgery that involves creating a small pouch at the top of the stomach and directly connecting it to the small intestine. This procedure significantly reduces the size of the stomach, limiting food intake, and decreasing the absorption of calories and nutrients.


Bariclip is a less invasive bariatric procedure involving the placement of an adjustable device around the stomach to reduce its capacity. Unlike gastric sleeve, it does not require cutting or removing part of the stomach. Bariclip is reversible and adjustable, with a faster recovery process and fewer complications than other surgeries.

Revision Surgery

Revision bariatric surgery is performed on patients who have undergone previous weight loss surgery but have not achieved desired results or have experienced complications. This procedure may involve adjusting or changing the original bariatric surgery type to improve results, manage side effects or complications, and ensure the safety and effectiveness of weight loss treatment.

Dr. Fraga understands the importance of personalized care, which is why he tailors treatments to the individual needs of his patients. His focus on laparoscopic surgery reflects his commitment to innovation and the application of less invasive methods to improve health outcomes in patients with obesity and related issues.
