  1. HI India- I went through a place called BeLightWeight, I had the sleeve done in September in Mexico. Total cost was 6800 and extra 50 for meds that I was able to bring home after surgery. Spent about 500 for round trip airline tickets for me and my husband. Belightweight made transportation arrangement from the airport to the hospital (& from the hospital back to the airport) where we both stayed for the entire process. The only thing we had to pay extra was for my husbands meals.

    I feel the only negative thing about this was not having the extra support from the doctor or nutritionist (they did send me home with a lot of information and instructions), however my doctor has been great about the whole process and did all my blood work when I got back to see where are my levels were (was low on vit D-) and she has been monitoring me since. And I do/could reach out to the team at BeLightWeight as well with other question and they did call me a few times to check in.

    hope you find this helpful...this is my 1st post :)
