Mexico Weight Loss Surgery Options

Gastric Sleeve Surgery, also known as vertical sleeve gastrectomy, is quickly becoming a standard in bariatrics. Sleeve Gastrectomy in Mexico is extremely popular for patients and surgeons alike. With very little "ongoing maintenance" with the surgery and the lack diet restrictions, sleeve gastrectomy is the most popular option in Mexico.


  • Reduces the production of Ghrelin (the hunger hormone)
  • High Expected Weight Loss (60%-70% in About Two Years)
  • Low Rates of Side Effects, Complications
Gastric Bypass Surgery, otherwise known as roux-en-y gastric bypass. Gastric bypass is considered the "gold standard" in bariatrics, because it is one of the most well-understood weight loss surgeries today. In the United States gastric bypass is the most performed surgery, ahead of gastric banding.


  • "Gold Standard" in Bariatric Surgery
  • Highest Expectation of Excess Weight Loss
  • Most Researched Weight Loss Procedure
Gastric Banding, known commonly by the implant brand names Lap-Band System or REALIZE system, is a restrictive weight loss procedure popular in the United States. In Mexico however, most patients opt for a less involving surgery like gastric sleeve surgery. Gastric banding is one of the original weight loss procedures, but is being eclipsed by other surgeries.


  • Reversible Weight Loss Procedure
  • No Intestinal Changes or Malabsorption issues
A simplified version of the roux-en-y gastric bypass, the Mini-Gastric Bypass is a procedure that has garnered some interest by our bariatric surgeons in Mexico. Not a popular procedure, yet the mini-gastric bypass produces similar expected weight loss as the traditional gastric bypass.


  • Simplified Version of Gastric Bypass
  • Comparable Expected Weight Loss to Gastric Bypass
The Duodenal Switch, otherwise known as vertical sleeve with duodenal switch, is a bariatric surgery that uses both restrictive and malabsorptive techniques, similar to gastric bypass, to produce high expected weight loss.


  • Highest Expected Weight Loss of all Bariatric Surgeries
  • Reduction in the Hunger Hormone Ghrelin
We are well-known for providing complicated bariatric surgery revisions. We are capable of the most common revision types including gastric banding to gastric sleeve, gastric bypass to duodenal switch, and others. Learn more or contact our staff to see if we can help.

Reasons to Undergo Revision Surgery:

  • Repair or Fix a Bariatric Surgery Complication
  • Revise to a Better Performing Weight Loss Procedure

Private Patient
I’m 48 years old, and I want to tell everyone my trip to Guadalajara in hands of Dr. Osuna was Great, she is a wonderful person and has a great reputation as a Surgeon, they performed gastric sleeve and I’ve lost a lot of weight.
I want to thank Dr. Osuna and her Team, for their services and the care they had with me before, during and after the surgery. They performed me a Lap Band Surgery this spring, its been 4 months and I’ve lost 32 pounds and I haven’t had an adjustment yet.
