  • Types of bariatric surgery covered by Mexico Bariatric Center
  • How Mexico Bariatric Center values their patients from start to finish
  • The costs of surgery in Tijuana

  • The benefits of bariatric surgery for fast weight loss

At the end of this event, some of the former patients were kind enough to stand front and center to share their gastric sleeve success stories. Guests were able to ask them direct questions and get an in-depth look at what they could expect going into and out of surgery.

Guests who attended this event were also given the opportunity to take advantage of a special promotional offer.A discounted gastric sleeve surgery package was given out to one selected winner in a random drawing at the end of the event.
