Mexico Weight Loss Surgery Options

Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Gastric sleeveGastric 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 reduces the hunger hormone Ghrelin while having minimal nutritional deficiencies. Sleeve Gastrectomy is quickly becoming a standard in bariatrics and is accessible to patients in Mexico. Mexico Gastric Sleeve has become very popular because of its affordability and reliability.

Gastric Bypass Surgery

Gastric bypassGastric Bypass Surgery, otherwise known as the Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB). Gastric bypass surgery is considered the “gold standard” in bariatrics because it is one of the most researched and well-understood weight loss surgeries today. It has one of the highest Excess Weight Loss (EWL) expectancy and reduction in obesity-related comorbidities. In the United States, gastric bypass is the most performed surgery, ahead of gastric banding or sleeve surgery.

Gastric Banding Surgery

Lap-Band ProcedureGastric Banding, known commonly by the implant brand names Lap-Band System or REALIZE system, is a restrictive weight loss procedure. Thought to be reversible, there is no intestinal changes or malabsorption issues. In Mexico however, most patients opt for a less invasive and a more permanent surgery like gastric sleeve. Gastric banding is one of the original weight loss procedures but is being eclipsed and surpassed by other effective weight loss procedures.

Mini Gastric Bypass

Mini Gastric BypassA simplified version of the roux-en-y gastric bypass, the Mini-Gastric Bypass or Single-Anastomosis Gastric Bypass, is a procedure that has garnered some interest by our bariatric surgeons in Mexico. Mini-gastric bypass produces similar expected weight loss as the traditional gastric bypass, although less invasive laparoscopic surgery. This procedure is increasing in popularity as a safe, efficient, and very effective type of weight loss surgery in Mexico.

Duodenal Switch Surgery

Duodenal Switch SurgeryThe Duodenal Switch, otherwise known as the vertical sleeve with duodenal switch (BPD/DS), is a bariatric surgery that uses both restrictive and malabsorptive techniques, similar to gastric bypass, to produce high expected weight loss. DS is extremely effective in both curing and remission of comorbidities like type II diabetes and major health problems. The Single Loop Duodenal Switch (SADI-S or SIPS) is a recent modification of Duodenal Switch in Mexico.

Gastric Balloon Surgery

Gastric BalloonIntra-Gastric Balloon (IGB) procedure is a medical weight loss management system designed to last for six months or one year. Gastric Balloon is a restrictive procedure, relying on an adjustable balloon installed endoscopically. The gastric balloon procedure takes less than an hour and is an outpatient procedure. The gastric balloon aims at morbidly obese individuals to quickly reduce 20 to 40 pounds to prepare for either gastric bypass, sleeve, or duodenal switch.

Revision Surgery

Revision Surgery

Revisional surgery is reserved for repair/fix of a bariatric surgery complication or revision of a failed bariatric surgery to a better performing one. Mexico Bariatric Center is well-known for providing complicated bariatric surgery revisions. Revision surgery in Mexico is capable of changing the most common types of weight loss procedures including gastric banding to gastric sleeve, sleeve to mini bypass, gastric bypass to duodenal switch, and other revisions.
