This is a possibility through the revolutionary weight loss surgery offered by Weight Loss Getaways. Weight Loss Getaways provides the ideal medical tourism experience in Mexico for surgical procedures that include gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, adjustable gastric band, and biliopancreatic diversion and duodenal switch.
Weight loss Gateways provides affordable weight loss, bariatric, and metabolic surgical procedures with special emphasis on the Duodenal Switch and Biliopancreatic Diversion. This procedure reduces the number of calories that are absorbed into the bloodstream without forcing the patient to reduce calorie intake. The procedure is also characterized by a reduction of the stomach size, yet this is not meant to affect meal size. It has been shown in multiple studies that this procedure is very effective in achieving approximately 90% excess weight loss at 5 years. Of importance to note is the fact that with this procedure, the patient has a longer hospital stay of about 3-5 days and a higher chance of complications than other procedures.
The biliopancreatic diversion and duodenal switch has been shown to resolve other medical conditions like type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, obstructive sleep apnea and significant reduction of high cholesterol. Apart from the effects of the surgery itself, these changes have a direct correlation with improved quality of life and the overall health of the patient. Research has also shown that individuals who have had the procedure done, report having a reduction in appetite, and this is due favorable changes in gut hormones. Patients will also need to adhere to the follow up schedules to ensure that they maintain their protein and vitamin intake.
