Hello, my name is Cheryl and I am a night-shift nurse. Over the years, I developed horrible eating habits and I gained a lot of weight. I tried dieting but it had a “yo-yo effect” and I gained back the weight I lost. This is when I knew I had to change my life and be healthier.

Why MBC?

After doing a lot of research, I found that Mexico Bariatric Center® was the best choice for me. The reviewers said that they are reliable and efficient which is what I was looking for. I was impressed by the positive feedback from others who have had surgery there as well. Based on all my research, I felt confident going there for my own surgery.

My Life After Surgery

Without Dr. Gutierrez, I would not have been able to hit my goal weight. I am grateful for this life-changing tool and experience. Every day is not easy but I still feel fantastic! My life after surgery has transformed me into a healthier and happier version of myself. My decision to undergo surgery was a milestone in my journey toward personal well-being. I have experienced an improvement in my overall health and quality of life.

The surgery has helped me to overcome the physical limitations that were holding me back from everyday activities. I now have more energy and stamina to be a part of things that I love! I feel a renewed sense of confidence and self-esteem, knowing that I have taken control of my health. Thank you, Dr. Gutierrez and MBC!

About Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Laparoscopic gastric sleeve, vertical sleeve gastrectomy (VSG), was carried out in the early 2000s as the first step of a biliopancreatic diversion/duodenal switch procedure for super-obese patients. Due to its excellent weight loss results, gastric sleeve surgery gained popularity as a definitive standalone bariatric operation. VSG does not alter food absorption in the body and works naturally by restricting food intake and resetting the body’s metabolic system.

The technical particularity of the bariatric surgeon creating the gastric tube itself and its upper part is of the utmost importance. Mexico Bariatric Center surgical teams have the expertise and experience to perform gastric sleeves in Mexico with a high success rate and low complication rate.
