Frequent Questions

Is it safe?

Yes! Getting your surgery in Mexico is just as safe as it is in America.

If you only take your information from the news then you'd think that Mexico is dangerous, but that's simply not the case. It's just as safe in Mexico as it is in Michigan. 

All of the hospitals our surgeons practice out of are in clean, upscale areas that are well protected by a 24/7 police presence. 

How skilled are the surgeons?

Like anywhere, some surgeons are more skilled than others. We submit each of our surgeons to a rigorous verification process to determine if they're at least as good as the best surgeons in America.

We qualify our surgeons based on:

  • Education history (most of our surgeons have studied and trained in America)
  • Professional history
  • Experience and success rates
  • Memberships within prestigious medical societies
  • And much more
How long do I have to stay?

Depending on the surgery you choose you could be back home within 4 days of arriving in Mexico. Most people only require 3 - 5 days before they're recovered enough to travel back home. 

How much does it cost?

The average costs of bariatric surgery in Mexico:

  • Gastric Sleeve ($4,000 - $7,000)
  • Gastric Bypass ($5,500 - $10,000)
  • Duodenal Switch ($6,500 - $11,000)
Why is it so much cheaper?

Surgery in Mexico is cheaper for many reasons:

  • Favorable exchange rates
  • Low cost of living
  • Smaller wages for medical staff
  • More efficient healthcare system

Arguably, Mexico tends to offer the biggest bang for your buck when compared to the outrageous prices of the American healthcare system

What's included in the price?

Usually, the only thing not included in the package price are your flights. Everything else is covered including:

  • Transfer between airport, hospital, and hotel
  • 4 or 5-star accommodation
  • All pre and post-op guidelines and instructions
  • All pre and post-op evaluations
  • Two Surgeons in the operating room with you
  • Anesthesiologist
  • Operating room costs
  • Pre and post-op medication

Previous Patients' Experience

Beth | Testimonial

"My biggest motivation was pure & simple self esteem.  I also felt as a therapist that my professional credibility was at stake. How could I tell others how to manage their issues when I was clearly wearing my issues on my backside!? I had tried every diet out there with tremendous short term success but nothing permanent...I needed an "off switch" & that is exactly what the sleeve gave me.

Bottom line is my only regret is that I didn't do it 15 years earlier!"

"After finding about the Mexico option and finding this procedure (VSG) it was like so meant to be for me. There was no question, never a doubt and I have no regrets whatsoever.

...probably the biggest and most important thing is that I feel so much better about myself. My self-esteem, my feelings of independence, my feelings of worth. When you think about it being fat takes all of that away, and becoming thinner brings it back. All in all I feel awesome and would 100% do it again"

Lee Anne


"I was perfectly fine traveling and did not have any issues at all! I am off of all medications. I was on blood pressure, cluster migraine meds, pre-diabetic meds, etc… now nothing but a multivitamin. I am happy.

I lost my husband to cancer in 2012 and did not want my children to deal with my health issues too, so I determined to regain my youthful attitude and THRIVE. It was the best decision I've ever made."
