Obesity is a rapidly escalating global epidemic responsible for 1 in every 5 deaths worldwide. Studies show that having a higher-than-normal body mass can double the mortality rate from cancer, quadruple it from cardiovascular disease, and increase it tenfold from COVID-19.1

If you’re not losing weight with diet & exercise, behavioral changes, or pharmaceuticals, you can achieve sustainable weight loss with low-cost bariatric surgery in Mexico.

Mexico Bariatric Center® has helped over 20,000 patients transform their lives since 2012. We offer laparoscopic and endoscopic procedures in our top-tier hospital facility, just minutes away from the border and San Diego airport, with the best bariatric surgeons in Mexico.

Health Benefits of Bariatric Weight Loss Surgery

How Bariatric Surgery Helps

Stomach-altering procedures, like VSG and Bypass, change the gut hormones and their interaction with the brain. The body’s metabolic system gets reset and gives individuals a renewed life. As with every type of bariatric surgery, the overall quality of life for patients improves drastically. A great deal of excess weight is lost, and patients experience the resolution of many life-threatening co-morbidities.

Bariatric surgery’s clinical benefits often translate into improved physical appearance, confidence, social opportunities, and economic opportunities.

One of the key benefits of these operations is the marked improvement in obesity-related health challenges, such as hypertension, type 2 diabetes, obstructive sleep apnea, and cardiovascular diseases, as well as a reduced risk for viral infections like COVID-19.

Treating Obesity with Bariatric Surgery

In 2022, over 243,000 people underwent bariatric surgery. This number is slightly lower than 263,000 in 2021, an all-time high. One contributing factor to this decline could be the explosion in the use of weight loss medications and the post-pandemic economy. Of course, the number of procedures was lower in 2020 due to COVID.

Roughly one million Americans cross the border every year for healthcare, including gastrointestinal (GI) operations. Many patients without insurance can expect to save 40% to 70% on these treatments by going to Mexico with MBC.

Popularity of Weight Loss Procedures

More and more patients are choosing Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (VSG) because of its substantial weight loss, low complication rate, and ease of conversion to other procedures. An estimated 61.4% of all weight loss surgeries performed are gastric sleeves.

At Mexico Bariatric Center®, VSG accounts for 80%, Bypass accounts for 16%, and DS accounts for 2% of total surgeries.[2022]
