Why Choose Mexico for Your Gastric Banding?

  • With the substantially lower lap band surgery costs in Tijuana, Puerto Vallarta and other major medical tourism destinations in the country, you can save more than 68% over the American prices. Here is an approximate cost comparison:Mexico ~ $5,250
    USA: $ 10,800 ~ $ 20,000
  • Because of proximity to the United States, major Mexican cities are culturally quite “Americanized”.
  • Since doctors we work with are English-speaking, you can rest any apprehensions regarding communication problems.
  • Most of the border towns, such as Tijuana and Mexicali, are not very far from American airports. Tijuana, for instance, is just 20 minutes away from the San Diego International Airport (IATA: SAN).
  • You also get a chance to extend your trip to get lap band in Mexico into a full-fledged vacation.

A Guide to Lap Band WLS

  • Alternative names for the procedure – Laparoscopic gastric banding, LAGB, and gastric banding.
  • The procedure involves placing an adjustable band around the upper part of the stomach.
  • This helps in making the patient not indulge in overeating after the surgery.
  • It is a restrictive kind of surgery as the patient feels fuller after eating relatively smaller quantities of food.
  • Post surgery, you will have to take a special diet as recommended by your surgeon.
  • For two weeks, your stomach will be able to handle only small amounts of liquids.
  •  Will be able to transition to solid foods with passage of time.
  • You will probably put on nutritional supplements for the rest of your life.
  • Some of the common risks of lap band surgery are blockage caused by the band around the stomach, band slippage, problems in the access port (used to inject and withdraw saline solution around the band to either tighten or loosen it), GERD and malnutrition.
