Mexico Weight Loss Surgery Options

Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Gastric Sleeve IllustrationsGastric Sleeve Surgery, also known as Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (VSG), is a rather simple surgical procedure with low complication rate used for the treatment of morbid obesity. VSG has tiny long-term nutritional deficiencies, especially when compared to the other more aggressive bariatric procedures. Sleeve Gastrectomy is quickly becoming a standard in bariatrics and is extremely accessible to patients and surgeons alike in Mexico. Mexico gastric sleeve has specific benefits verse other gastric surgeries.

Gastric Bypass Surgery

Gastric Bypass SurgeryGastric Bypass Surgery, otherwise known as the roux-en-y gastric bypass. Gastric bypass surgery is considered the “gold standard” in bariatrics because it is one of the most well-understood weight loss surgeries today. In the United States, gastric bypass is the most performed surgery, ahead of gastric banding.


  • “Gold Standard” in Bariatric Surgery
  • Highest Expectation of Excess Weight Loss
  • Most Researched Weight Loss Procedure

Gastric Banding Surgery

Gastric BandingGastric Banding, known commonly by the implant brand names Lap-Band System or REALIZE system, is a restrictive weight loss procedure popular in the United States. In Mexico however, most patients opt for a less involving surgery like gastric sleeve surgery. Gastric banding is one of the original weight loss procedures but is being eclipsed by other surgeries.


  • Reversible Weight Loss Procedure
  • No Intestinal Changes or Malabsorption issues


Mini Gastric Bypass Surgery

Mini Gastric BypassA simplified version of the roux-en-y gastric bypass, the Mini-Gastric Bypass is a procedure that has garnered some interest by our bariatric surgeons in Mexico. Not a modern system yet the mini-gastric bypass produces similar expected weight loss as the traditional gastric bypass.


  • Simplified Version of Gastric Bypass
  • Comparable Expected Weight Loss to Gastric Bypass

Duodenal Switch Surgery

Duodenal Switch SurgeryThe Duodenal Switch, otherwise known as the vertical sleeve with duodenal switch, is a bariatric surgery that uses both restrictive and malabsorptive techniques, similar to gastric bypass, to produce high expected weight loss.


  • Highest Expected Weight Loss of all Bariatric Surgeries
  • Reduction in the Hunger Hormone Ghrelin


Gastric Balloon Surgery

Gastric Balloon IllustrationIntra-Gastric Balloon procedure is a medical weight loss procedure designed for patients to last for six months. The gastric balloon aims at morbidly obese individuals to quickly reduce 20 to 30 pounds to prepare for either gastric bypass or duodenal switch.

Gastric Balloon is a restrictive procedure, relying on an adjustable balloon installed endoscopically through a patient’s esophagus. This process takes less than an hour and is an outpatient procedure.
