Why Gastric Bypass in Mexico Is Recommended by Top Doctors and Weight Loss Specialists

The Roux-en-Y gastric bypass has the longest track record of all the bariatric surgeries available today. Due to its longevity and positive patient outcomes, it is considered by top doctors and experts in the fields of weight loss and obesity as the "gold standard" in bariatric surgery.

What is a Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass?

Gastric Bypass restricts food intake by creating a small pouch at the top of the stomach. The pouch is then connected to a section of the small intestine, allowing food to bypass the lower stomach and the first two parts of the small intestine. This should be viewed as a permanent procedure; the gastric bypass cannot be reversed.

With years of experience in Roux-en-Y gastric bypass in Mexico, Dr. Alejandro Lopez’s patients have improved their overall health. Diabetes has been greatly reduced or even eliminated at six and twelve months post-surgery. After gastric bypass in Mexico, patients are now living the healthy lifestyle that they had only dreamed of.

The Roux-en-Y gastric bypass accounts for nearly fifty percent of weight loss surgeries done in the United States, while come to Mexico at the fraction of the cost for the same results. It is a powerful tool for individuals struggling with obesity.

What to Expect During the Gastric Bypass Procedure

Step: 01

You will be put under general anesthesia. This allows us to safely perform the surgery and prevents you from feeling pain.

Step: 02

Incisions will be made in the abdomen. In most cases, we perform gastric bypass laparoscopically, so these incisions are quite small.

Step: 03

Your stomach will be divided into two sections and your intestines rerouted. The result will be one section of the stomach completely bypassed while the other will still take in food.

Step: 04

Your incisions will be closed and then you will be moved to recovery. We will keep an eye on you there until you are ready to go to your hotel. Once there, we will help you as you recover.
