What is bariatric surgery?

Surgical procedure to effectively treat morbid obesity in people whose exercise methods have not worked or who have serious health problems because of their weight. Our goal is to help the patient lose excess weight and reduce the risk of fatal weight-related health problems.

Gastric sleeve


Gastric bypass


Gastric band removal


Post bariatric surgery




Each type of surgery has different benefits and they are different depending on the needs of each patient.

Is weight loss surgery a ‘cop-out’? To lose weight, should people with obesity just go on a diet and exercise?

Many people who suffer from obesity find it difficult to lose weight and keep it off with diet and exercise alone. This is probably due to nutrition and health related characteristics.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Expert Panel stated that without surgery, long-term weight loss is nearly impossible for those with severe obesity. Studies show little long-term success with diet and exercise alone. When a person goes on a diet, their body produces more hormones that cause an increase in hunger and a decrease in calories burned. There are significant differences between someone who has lost weight by dieting and someone of the same size who has never lost weight. For example, the body of the person who reduces his or her weight from 200 to 170 pounds burns fewer calories than the body of a 170-pounder who has never been on a diet. Weight loss procedures cause biological changes that help reduce food intake. Energy intake (in the form of food) decreases with surgery by restricting stomach size and limiting absorption. In addition, surgery modifies the production of certain intestinal hormones (or signals) that communicate with the brain to reduce hunger, decrease appetite and increase satiety. In this way, weight loss surgery, unlike dieting, produces long-term weight loss.

Gastric sleeve

Restrictive procedure whose objective is to reduce the size of the stomach by 60% to 80%, eliminating two thirds of the stomach and the hormones it secretes. In addition, our patients feel less hungry and overcome the urge to eat. If your BMI is less than 45 and you do not suffer from type 1 diabetes, then this is traditionally the most common procedure to receive.


It usually lasts only 45 minutes and has one of the highest success rates in the industry.


Less of the hormone “ghrelin” is produced, which is responsible for hunger.


It is performed under general anesthesia.


Amazingly affordable. This is thanks to the lower cost of medical procedures in Mexico.

Post bariatric plastic surgery

Unfortunately, neither exercise nor diet help tighten sagging skin. The goal of post-bariatric surgery consists of cosmetic procedures that remove excess skin on the abdomen, arms, thighs and chest to give a better appearance to the body of a person who has undergone a weight loss procedure. At Blue Medical Tower our surgeons specialize in all areas of bariatric plastic and reconstructive surgery, and as part of our team we count with the more than 25 years of experience of Dr. Manuel Gutierrez, board-certified plastic surgeon and member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Widely known and recommended.

Revision procedure

Revisional bariatric surgery is performed to repair or modify a previous weight loss surgery. It may be appropriate for you if your weight loss has not been optimal, if you have regained weight, or if you have had complications from the original procedure. Unfortunately, some people regain weight after bariatric surgery, which can lead to a recurrence of conditions such as hypertension or high blood pressure, diabetes, sleep apnea, high cholesterol and joint pain.

Candidates for surgery:

-Has not lost 50 percent of excess weight -You have regained enough weight to cause medical problems to reappear -Your BMI is equal to or greater than 40

Other conditions:

-Lap-Band failure -Pouch enlargement -Sleeve failure -Gastrogastric fistula


This surgery is more complex but is a safe and effective option when performed by certified bariatric surgeons.


-Correct the problem that brings the patient -Make revisional surgery a definitive procedure -Maintain weight within a favorable range

What to expect from the procedure?

-Minimally invasive -Short recovery time -Renewed weight loss

Types of bariatric revision:
