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 :)

It actually was helpful... it was 6800??? everything I read is 3499 for sleeve UGH... I'm never gonna be able to have this surgery at this rate

TOTALLY NOT YOUR FAULT BUT YOU POST LITERALLY BROUGHT ME TO TEARS!

I have a friend that also had hers done in Mexico and paid less than 4000, which I tried contacting them first but the staff didnt speak English. Saltillo, Mexico Dr. Henry Mansur. that is all the information I have to where she went. Sorry, don't give up.

I forgot to mention they do have a payment plan at BeLightWeight.

I'm not too sure, since that wasn't the option that I was going with so I did not look into it. But you can go to their website for cost and payment information. sorry it's BeLiteWeight.

I agree. Please do your research and be wary of any practice in Mexico that charges less than $4600 USD.

Ask for certifications and accreditations for both the Surgeon and the Hospital. These are fairly easy to confirm online. Look for surgeon accreditations like FACS, ASMBS, SRC Surgeon of Excellence and SRC Master Surgeon in Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery.

As for the Hospital. Make sure it is a FULL-Service Hospital and not a clinic or surgery center. Clinics and surgery centers are not equipped to handle serious complications. Their accreditations and certifications include SRC Center of Excellence in Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, as well as Local, State and Federal certifications.

I had a MGB at Hospital BC 3 weeks ago. Everything went fine. I paid $140 RT airfare, $5900 for surgery ($4600 for sleeve) I stayed in hospital all week and even had a tour of Tijuana. I did have to pay $65 for blood thinners injections to take home but that's not too bad. They picked me up from airport and brought me back to the airport. If I would've had a companion, he/she would've stayed in the same room as me bcuz they have an extra bed in there for guests. I'm thinking about using them for plastic surgery once the weight loss is done making me look fantastic. Lol

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!

        Hello congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.
