Many Weight Loss Surgery Success Stories - Featured Case

Milissa Fox from the United States was sleeved in Tijuana on August 26, 2014. Nine months later she had lost almost 92 pounds. She expected losing a total of whopping 100 pounds by the time it was her first surgery anniversary. She calls her bariatric surgery the best thing she could do in her adult life. And it took her more than 10 years of contemplation and research to finally get herself to having the gastric sleeve surgery in Mexico.
The following is her testimonial video.

Disclaimer: Weight loss results may vary. We do not guarantee any specific results.

She looked up online for weight loss surgery in Tijuana with MBS and felt completely safe in Mexico. She found the care to be 'magnificent' and suggests others not to be afraid of coming south of the border for a life-altering experience. Calling the hospitals in the USA where she had been in and out because of her Type 1 diabetes mellitus 'quite busy', Milissa found the staff at the TJ hospital very attentive. Read more on her bariatric surgery experience here.

Milissa is not the only one! We have helped hundreds have a fulfilling experience with our compassionate and caring staff and destination managers. Go through more Mexico weight loss surgery reviews by our past clients for more obesity surgery success stories.

Bariatric Surgery Statistics

According to the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) gastric sleeve was the most common bariatric procedure in the United States in 2015. While the overall number of surgeries increased by 10% between 2013 and 2015, it jumped by about 24% in 2015 compared to 2011.
Getting operated south of the border is a good option for Americans delaying surgery because they have either been denied surgery or can't afford cash-pay option in the US.

Low Cost Bariatric Surgery Options

Gastric Sleeve

Alternatively known as vertical sleeve gastrectomy (VSG), gastric sleeve is a less complex bariatric procedure than gastric bypass. It involves removing nearly three quarters of the stomach along the greater curvature which restricts the amount of food it can hold. This helps you feel satisfied after eating relatively small quantities of food.

It is not a reversible procedure and does not involve altering the way in which the small intestine absorbs food (as is the case in gastric bypass). This procedure also discounts the need for inserting a foreign device inside the body (unlike lap band surgery).

It also helps inhibit hunger as the procedure also removes the part of the stomach responsible for the production of the hunger inducing hormone called ghrelin.Staple line reinforcement may be achieved through double buttressing for preventing gastric leaks, pouch stretching and other failures and complications of the surgery.

Besides weight loss, gastric sleeve also helps resolve various co-morbidities of obesity as can be seen in the following figure:

Excess Weight Loss (EWL) at 1 year 67.3%
Diabetes Mellitus81.9%

Gastric Bypass

Roux-en-Y bypass (RYGB or RNY) is a type of weight loss surgery which involves restricting the capacity of the stomach to hold food by reducing it to a pouch the size of an egg. This small pouch is created out of the upper portion of the stomach.
The new stomach pouch is attached with a section of the small intestine similar to the letter 'Y' which allows food to circumvent the lower part of the stomach along with the duodenum and the jejunum. This helps in bypassing that part of the digestive tract where absorption of nutrients and calories takes place.

A 2017 research study by Nguyen NT et al4 put co-morbidity resolution rates at 10-year follow-up of post-op RYGB patients as follows:
ComorbidityResolution Rates
Diabetes 68%

Lap Band

Also known as laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB), this procedure aids in weight loss by winding a ring-like device around the upper portion of the stomach to create a smaller pouch with limited capacity to hold food.

Post lab band surgery, because of the reduced capacity of the stomach you feel full quicker. The food contents also move slowly from the upper pouch to the remaining lower portion of the stomach thereby creating a sense of satiety soon.

The procedure involves making about 5 incisions in the abdomen. Through these surgical incisions a tiny camera and special instruments are placed in the stomach cavity. An inflatable band made of silicone is placed around the upper part of the stomach to divide it into two parts. This keeps a check over the flow of food from the pouch to the lower part of the stomach because of which you feel full after eating smaller quantities.

The band is connected to an access port which is placed right below the skin of the belly. The port is used to adjust the band as per the requirement in future.

Gastric Sleeve Plication

Gastric sleeve plication is an obesity reduction surgery which limits the food-holding capacity of the stomach by making an internal pleat or fold in it.

It is a keyhole or laparoscopic surgery. After mobilizing or freeing the stomach, its muscle lining is tucked in. This restricts gastric space. The part of the stomach which is folded in is the greater curvature. This is the portion which is known to enlarge considerably when one eats.

Sleeve plication is considered simpler than vertical sleeve gastrectomy. The Obesity Surgery Society of Australia and New Zealand says that the surgery could help lose almost 50% of the excess weight in a period of 6 to 12 months.

Benefits Disadvantage
Since it is a relatively new procedure there aren't enough long term research studies and data on it.

Single Incision (SILS) Sleeve Surgery

We also offer Single Incision SILS sleeve surgery. It is a minimally invasive approach which results in minimal scarring and quicker recovery than traditional laparoscopic surgery. Instead of 4-5 incisions made in the abdomen in laparoscopic surgery, the SILS sleeve gastrectomy is performed through just one incision made in the umbilicus (belly button). The hidden scar in the belly button is the reason why it is also known as scar-free bariatric surgery.

Special laparoscopic instruments are introduced into the stomach cavity through a 0.5 inch long incision in the umbilicus. The stomach is freed up or mobilized along its greater curvature. As in regular sleeve surgery, almost 80% of the stomach is removed. The excised stomach is pulled out through this tiny incision. Our bariatric surgeon is proficient in this modern technique.
