Hello! My name is Susan and I was 51 years old when I decided to have weight loss surgery. Back then, I was in a very bad long-term relationship and a job I was no longer happy at so I decided it was time for things to change. I decided to retire from my job after 32 and a half years. I let the relationship go, went to counseling, and knew I needed help with my weight.

Why MBC?

I chose Mexico Bariatric Center® after searching through the internet. I did a lot of research and found them to be very credible. The positive feedback and success stories I found made me confident in their expertise. It looked like a great place to have bariatric surgery at.

This new version of me is all thanks to Mexico Bariatric Center, which provided me with the invaluable tool I needed.

About Gastric Sleeve

In the early 2000s, a surgical procedure known as laparoscopic gastric sleeve, or vertical sleeve gastrectomy (VSG), was introduced as the initial step in a biliopancreatic diversion/duodenal switch procedure for extremely obese individuals. Over time, VSG gained recognition as an effective standalone bariatric surgery due to its impressive weight loss outcomes. Unlike other procedures, VSG does not affect the absorption of food within the body; instead, it achieves weight loss by reducing food intake and resetting the body’s metabolic system.

The technical skill of the bariatric surgeon in creating the gastric tube and its upper section is significantly important. The surgical teams at Mexico Bariatric Center® possess the necessary expertise and experience to carry out gastric sleeve surgeries in Mexico, ensuring a high success rate and minimal complications.
