Weight Loss Surgery Success Stories

Here are a few of our former Canadian patients sharing their fantastic weight loss surgery transformation with Mexico Bariatric Center. During your initial research to find a trusted weight loss surgeon in Mexico, you need to look at the center’s gastric sleeve surgery before and after photos.

Mexico Bariatric Center is a healthcare facilitator in Mexico providing patients from Canada and the United States with affordable weight loss surgery. These patient testimonials include patients from Canada with gastric sleeve surgery and gastric bypass surgery.

Transforming Your Life with Gastric Sleeve

Sleeve gastrectomy, otherwise known as the gastric sleeve is a restrictive weight loss procedure. Gastric sleeve is performed by removing as much as 85% of a patient’s stomach, leaving 3.5 to 4 oz. stomach capacity behind. Many surgeons prefer gastric sleeve to gastric banding and gastric bypass for a few simple reasons.

Why is Gastric Sleeve Surgery Popular?

  • Low complication rates similar to gastric bypass. While a recent study reports 33% of gastric banding patients will revise their surgery.
  • High Expected Weight Loss, similar to Gastric Bypass.

Mexico Bariatric Center Success Stories

“I came from Newfoundland, Canada to Mexico Bariatric Center for vertical sleeve gastrectomy. I had a wonderful experience with the center. I wish I had done it earlier. The staffs, doctors are excellent and the treatment is amazing. I would recommend this center to anybody.”

March 26th, 2013

“Hi Mexico Bariatric Center,

I just wanted to let you know that everything went really well with the surgery. It was so much easier than I expected, and it was a great experience. Dr. Diaz is the best. He was so attentive and explained everything before, during, and after. I did not see anyone else’s doctor come to check on them nearly as much as Dr. Diaz checked on his patients. Awesome!

All went really smoothly and I am feeling great. Thanks for all your help!”
