Which Procedure is Best for Me?
One of the first questions to ask yourself when considering bariatric surgery is, "Which procedure is right for me?" Several factors are needed to best determine what is right. These include your weight, current health, wellness status, goals, body type and specific preferences made by your bariatric surgeon.
Gastric sleeve surgery is a weight loss procedure that gets rid of approximately 80 percent of the stomach. The best candidates for this type of surgery include individuals with a Body Mass Index between 30 and 40 and those at a heightened risk of disease or death relating to obesity. Because a new banana shaped sleeve is created, the surgery is irreversible.
Gastric bypass surgery is also referred to as Roux-en-Y (RNY). This form of bariatric surgery allows a patient to be able to lose weight by changing the way your small intestine and stomach processes food that you consume. Performed by a knowledgeable and licensed surgeon at Bariatric Select, the process is done laparoscopically. Because the surgery is done minimally invasive, individuals who are obese may be able to reverse dangerous illnesses such as high blood pressure, type two diabetes, back pain, depression, sleep apnea and other ailments.
Bariatric Select is a leader in bariatric and duodenal switch surgery. Their impeccable records allows them to perform intricate methods such as the duodenal switch. This is a powerful metabolic and weight loss type of surgery. As this is the second step in the vertical sleeve gastric surgery, it's ideal for those with an abnormally high body mass index (BMO).
Our practice is proud to offer LAP-BAND Adjustable Gastric Band surgery, a highly effective weight loss operation that has become popular throughout the United States. The procedure uses a silicone band to constrict the stomach, creating a smaller stomach pouch that strictly limits the amount of food a person can eat in one sitting. Because of this, individuals feel full more quickly. the LAP-BAND System procedure also slows down the digestion process, which helps to curb hunger. In additionm, the LAP-BAND System can be adjusted or reversed at any time according to the needs of the patient
Revision weight loss surgery is a process that is performed on individuals who have undergone some form of bariatric surgery, but they have had complications. These could include not being able to achieve excessive weight loss results, medical complications or regaining weight that was previously lost. In today's scope of medicine, revision weight loss surgeries are performed laparoscopically.
Meet our heroes! These actual patients took the first step with us, and have become their "Better Self."
** Your individual weight loss results will vary, depending on the selected WLS procedure, your nutritional diet, and exercise program. **

Affordable Bariatric Surgery
Bariatric & Banding Weight Loss SurgeryAchieving and maintaining a healthy weight can add years to your life, do wonders for your mobility and give you more energy. If you struggle with losing weight for any reason and are ready to make a lifetime commitment to living healthy, our surgeons and skilled gastric surgery professionals are here to help you. We offer several types of affordable weight loss surgery in Mexico.
What Is Weight Loss Surgery?Most weight loss surgeries today are minimally invasive. Some types involve restricting your food intake by shrinking the size of the stomach. Another type of surgery combines stomach shrinkage with a bypass technique that results in your body absorbing fewer calories. Surgeries that change the way your body breaks down and absorbs nutrients can also help control or cure Type 2 diabetes.
Who Is A Candidate For Weight Loss Surgery?If you have a BMI of 40 or higher, you are a candidate for gastric surgery. If your BMI is lower but you are obese and have trouble losing weight, talk to one of our specialists to see if you qualify for surgery. People who are obese and have sleep apnea, high cholesterol or several other ailments may still qualify even if their BMI is below 40. You may also qualify if you have Type 2 diabetes and are obese but cannot lose weight.
Surgeries We PerformOur surgeons are highly accredited and have performed thousands of weight loss surgeries. From a duodenal switch to a bariatric sleeve, there are several options. These are some of the most common types performed at our clinic.
Mini Gastric BypassThis is a shorter surgical process that results in rapid weight loss. It works by restricting your food intake but involves less intestinal bypass. You may lose up to 80 percent of your excess weight, and about 60 percent of people keep the weight off.
Laparoscopic BandWhile this method is becoming outdated, it is still an option. Your food intake is limited because of a band that restricts a large portion of your stomach. The main benefit of a laparoscopic band surgery is that it is minimally invasive.
Bariatric SleeveMost people who are searching for gastric sleeve Mexico know that this surgical option has great success rates. This short surgery reduces your stomach's size by about 80 percent and leaves you feeling satiated after consuming smaller portions of food.
Gastric Sleeve RevisionThis laparoscopic surgery is similar to the original procedure if you need a re-sleeve to shrink the pouch. Also, we perform revisions to give you a duodenal switch or gastric bypass instead of your existing sleeve.
Why Choose Bariatric Select?In addition to the many benefits we offer, our high-quality surgeries are affordable. This is especially true for Americans who are paying more for health coverage. Recent health insurance marketplace changes left many people with deductibles well over $6,000, and weight loss surgery is not covered or may only be covered in limited circumstances in most states. For many people, the cost of traveling and weight loss surgery in Mexico is much lower than the cost after or without insurance in the USA. Also, you do not receive the same benefits and perks provided by us even with good insurance. These are some of the unique benefits offered by our bariatric surgery facility:
- Post-op support for two years
- Nutritional education
- All medications
- Five-star hotel stay after hospital
