Kim Kardashian Before and After

Kim Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on cosmetic surgery, cool sculpting, and other new fat-reducing procedures.  Some of the methods worked for a short period of time but had them running back for more lipo and cool sculpting. The sisters finally found a long-term solution requiring only one procedure, mini gastric sleeve surgery.

We don’t want our readers to make the same mistake wasting time, money, and effort by avoiding all the complications and recovery time that comes with plastic surgery.

Gastric Sleeve vs. Liposuction and Coolsculpting

Gastric Sleeve

Gastric Sleeve shrinks fat cells (adipose tissues) and improves its function. 80% of your stomach is removed, forming a portion like a tube or a sleeve. Gut hormone signals to the brain changes leading to less feelings of hunger.  As a result, you can eat less and lose weight over the course of 12 to 24 months. A single gastric sleeve procedure can help you lose 100% of your excess weight, treating your entire body and making you smaller everywhere for good.

  • Candidates: Adults with a BMI of 27 or higher
  • Average cost: $15,350 in the United States| $4,595 in Mexico

Liposuction can only remove subcutaneous fat (the layer beneath the skin.) Bariatric surgery reduces fat deep in your body around your organs, known as visceral fat.

Liposuction

Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that suctions out surplus fat deposits of up to 5 liters. There are many types of lipo available. The most popular technique is 360 Lipo is not so 360 because only up to three to four areas of your body can be treated in one procedure. For example, a board-certified plastic surgeon will remove fat from the stomach, back, and thighs. Leaving the arms, shoulders, or other areas unsymmetrical.

  • Candidates: Healthy adults with firm, tight skin and strong muscle tone who are within 30% of their desired goal weight
  • Average cost: $6,550 in the United States| $4,999 in Mexico

People often mistakenly consider liposuction for weight loss. 90% of liposuction patients will be disappointed with the results for multiple reasons. One of the main reasons is that patients will have uneven, loose skin. Suppose you want to remove a limited amount of fat to reshape your body. Liposuction is a better option for you. Surgeons will insist that patients return to get more liposuction. It will be a waste of money not to get to the root of the problem if you are obese.

CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting freezes fat cells, reducing 20% to 25% of fat in treated areas. Two to three treatment appointments are needed to get results. Only four areas can be safely done in one session. Candidates must be within 35% of their ideal body weight for the best results. Only eight areas of the body are FDA-cleared for cool sculpting, so this will not be a good solution for a full-body transformation.

  • Candidates: Healthy adults with a BMI of 30 or below
  • Average cost: $3,200 in the United States| $1,800 in Mexico

“Bariatric Surgery Changed my Life Forever” – Amanda

Amanda before after bariatric

Our past patient, Amanda, had numerous cosmetic procedures to obtain a more petite body. Surgeons could not treat every area. Only specific areas can be body contoured, giving an illusion. Despite her many attempts, her excess weight always returned.

In the photo, Amanda had already had rounds of liposuction and a mommy makeover.

After spending over $20,000 on cosmetic procedures, she finally found a long-term solution. In August of 2022, she had weight loss surgery at Mexico Bariatric Center with Dr. Alejandro Gutierrez.

In her post-op photo on the right, just three months after her bariatric procedure, she reached her goal weight and lost pounds and inches all over her body without losing her curves.

Her only regret is not doing it sooner and saving thousands of dollars she spent on cosmetic surgery.

This is not an uncommon story. We have had thousands of patients go through multiple surgeries of liposuction. Just to be left disappointed with the results and unhappy with their body.

Gastric sleeve surgery is the best option if you want a long-term solution to remove excess weight and be healthier for good, not just temporarily.

A gastric sleeve or mini sleeve can get you where you need to be and stabilize your ideal weight. You won’t have to worry about gaining excess weight or undergoing another procedure or trend that will only work temporarily.
