Bariatric Surgery FAQ
Bariatric surgery is a safe and effective treatment option for those affected by severe obesity. Moreover, these same procedures have also been recognized for their impact on metabolic or hormonal changes that play a major role in hunger (the desire to start eating) and satiety (the desire to stop eating) as well as improvement and/or resolution of conditions that can occur as a result of severe obesity.
At Mexico Bariatrics we follow guidelines supported by the National Institutes of Health in order to determine a patient’s eligibility for weight loss surgery. Rather than using weight, we use body mass index (BMI) as a criteria for surgery — excess fat in relation to height.
Before becoming eligible for surgery, you will meet with our surgeons, dietitians, psychologists, and members of our nursing staff for a full evaluation.
All major surgery comes with risks, and the risks are different for each patient. At Mexico Bariatrics, our surgeons have better outcomes than most. During your first appointment, your surgeon will explain your individual risk level.
The amount of weight you lose — and how fast you lose it — depends on which weight loss surgery you have. Patients who have adjustable gastric banding (Lap-Band®) procedures usually lose weight more slowly the first year than those who have gastric bypass (RYGB) or duodenal switch procedures (DS). In our program the average patient loses between 68 to 78 percent of his or her excess body weight after RYGB or DS and between 60 to 70 percent after vertical sleeve gastrectomy (VSG). Weight loss with gastric banding is less predictable. The amount of weight loss also depends on your age, gender, starting body mass index and your ability to adhere to lifestyle changes necessary to make surgery a success.
