Gastric Bypass or Sleeve Prices in Mexico



Recommended Posts

Long story, short. I have an initial consult in the US for weight loss surgery on Friday. I'm 6'2, 255-260 lbs. I don't think I'm going to qualify because I'm a little below 35% BMI and only condition is high blood pressure. If I am, insurance will pay completely. So, I've been doing research for doctors in Mexico. Approved at BariatricPal Hospital MX with Dr. Illan and Angeles Health International with Dr. Lopes Corvala. Dr. Corvala shows a price of $10,950 for the gastric Bypass travel package. No price with Dr. Illan yet. I guess my questions are what would be the right surgery for me and what kind of prices are every one seeing. I don't want to skimp on this type of life changing surgery, but still have to watch the budget and if that means waiting, I'll have to wait.

If you have any co-morbidities (sleep apnea, diabetes, etc) there's a good chance your US surgeon might be able to get your insurance to cover your surgery. You sound like the perfect candidate for a Gastric Sleeve. I'd discuss the surgery types that are good for you with whichever surgeon you select and go with the option that you both agree on.

You can view all surgery pricing with Dr. Illan at https://bariatricpalhospitalmx.com/weight-loss-surgeries

Gastric Sleeve: $4600

MGB: $5700

Gastric Bypass: $6000

DS: $6400

Dr. Illan is a top notch surgeon. He did my MGB. Plus the hospital and staff were better than any care I received in the states.

I am below my goal by 5 lbs. Smaller than even in high school. I feel great and if I ask Dr. Illan a question he always answers.

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
