There are different kinds of weight loss surgery. Here at Blue Medical Services Cancun, our doctors offer two of the most effective procedures:
Gastric Bypass Surgery the GOLD STANDARD for weight loss surgery. This procedure intended for a weigh loss over 60 pounds. The surgery has different variants, over all it makes the stomach smaller and re-connects the intestines in a way that food doesn’t pass through an area where oils are absorbed. So acting in a double pourpose of having a small receptacle for food and not letting greasy food be absorbed by the body is a way to achieve the most weight loss possible.
Gastric Sleeve Surgery this procedure is intended for people who are overweight and are looking to lose 40 to 60 pounds. In this surgery 80% of the stomach is reduced and formed into a long tubular receptacle, so that you will feel fuller with a small amount of food.
