When considering bariatric surgery, it’s very important to choose a reputable surgeon with a long-standing history of success. In addition, patients should only consider surgeons that are controlled in a regulated environment, unlike in Mexico.
We frequently treat patients who traveled to Mexico for bariatric surgery. Unfortunately, they often return to the United States with more problems than when they left. These problems typically take the form of general surgical complications, internal leaks, insufficient weight loss, etc. Some patients will spend weeks in the Mexico hospital attempting to resolve these issues before boarding a plane home. Upon their return, patients may need to be re-operated on in order to obtain the proper sleeve procedure and their desired results.
It is more important to ensure your life is not in danger than to save a few thousand dollars.
