BariClip With B-Clamp in Tijuana, Mexico

Are you struggling to lose weight with just diet and exercise? Are you looking for a safe and affordable way to overcome obesity?

If you are ready to lose weight and are not a candidate for traditional weight-loss surgery, BariClip with B-Clamp® might be a good option.

Our board-certified bariatric surgeons in Tijuana can expertly place your BariClip so you can overcome obesity and live a healthier life.

What Is the B-Clamp?


The B-Clamp is a titanium structure placed around your stomach wall to limit the amount of food you can consume. Unlike a gastric sleeve, no part of the stomach is removed and the procedure is reversible.

The Benefits


BariClip mimics the effects of gastric sleeve or gastric bypass without changing your digestive anatomy.
Hospital San Javier Rivera is a top-tier facility that uses only the most sophisticated medical technology, and adheres to the strictest sterilization and safety standards. This facility offers many services, including 24-hour emergency care. Many of our staff members are bilingual, helping you to feel comfortable and confident whether your native language is English or Spanish. It is a certified specialty hospital that can meet the needs of every patient, including those undergoing bariatric surgery.

Weight Loss

Patients who undergo BariClip surgery can expect to lose on average 35% of their excess weight. BariClip gives patients the kickstart they need to live healthier lives.

Reduces Risk of GERD

BariClip decreases the amount of intragastric pressure, reducing your risk of developing postoperative gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).


One of the biggest benefits of BariClip over other bariatric surgeries is that the procedure is reversible. If you no longer wish to have the clip after you reach your weight loss goals, your surgeon can easily remove it.


BariClip, like most bariatric surgeries, is done laparoscopically so you will have minimal scarring. Unlike other bariatric surgeries, BariClip does not require your stomach to be cut or your small intestine to be rerouted.

Am I a Candidate



You could be a good candidate for BariClip with B-Clamp if you have a body mass index (BMI) between 29 and 40. That is lower than most other bariatric surgeries, and patients with a BMI higher than 40 should consider other options.


The B-Clamp provides you with the tools you need to kickstart your weight loss journey. For lasting results, you must be committed to leading a healthy lifestyle.


If you suffer from GERD or acid reflux, the B-Clamp might be recommended to you over other bariatric surgeries due to its ability to reduce intragastric pressure.

What to Expect


BariClip is a quick, minimally invasive surgery. The entire process can typically be completed in less than 30 minutes.

General Anesthesia

You will be put under general anesthesia for this procedure to ensure you remain asleep the entire time.

Incisions Are Made

Your bariatric surgeon will make a few incisions to your abdomen to insert the laparoscopic devices.

Placing the Clamp

Your bariatric surgeon will fasten the B-Clamp around the stomach wall, effectively closing off a large portion of your stomach.

Securing It With Sutures

Once the B-Clamp has been placed and properly adjusted, your bariatric surgeon will secure it with sutures to prevent it from slipping.

Are There Any Risks


Since this is a minimally invasive surgery, the risk of complications is lower than with other weight-loss surgeries. Our surgeons in Tijuana are board-certified and take every precaution possible to minimize your chance of developing one of these complications.


Although extremely rare, there is a chance of the clamp slipping off of your stomach. This makes the procedure ineffective and will also cause issues in the rest of your body. This will need to be corrected by your bariatric surgeon as soon as possible.


Similar to Lap-Band®, the B-Clamp can also cause erosion. This happens when your B-Clamp weakens the tissue underneath. This can lead to infections, leakage, and further complications.


Because the titanium clamp is covered in smooth medical-grade silicone, the chance of it poking through the stomach wall is very low. You need to seek medical attention as soon as possible if a puncture does occur.

Recovery and Aftercare

Since this is a minimally invasive surgical procedure, the recovery time is fairly quick. Most patients will be able to leave the hospital the same day of their surgery and return to normal activities within 48 hours. You must follow the treatment plan of your bariatric surgeon to ensure successful results. Weight loss will happen quickly within the first year, and you must continue to exercise and eat a healthy diet to maintain your results.

Overcome Your Obesity


Obesity can lead to major health issues like cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, obstructive sleep apnea, and more. Through BariClip surgery at our Tijuana location, you can lose weight and live a healthier, more active life.

What is the cost of BariClip surgery in Tijuana?

We pride ourselves on having affordable pricing for all of our bariatric procedures. We also accept many forms of payment, including cash, credit card, money order, financing, and International Medical Travel Services and Benefits. Contact our Tijuana surgical center to learn more about the cost of BariClip surgery.

How does BariClip affect weight loss?

During BariClip surgery, a large portion of the stomach is closed off. The remaining functioning pouch is much smaller and unable to hold large amounts of food giving you the feeling of being full much quicker than before.

What are the long-term effects of BariClip surgery?

Bariclip surgery is a new bariatric procedure, so not much is known yet about its long-term effects. Trials continue to be conducted as we learn more about its immediate and lasting effects. One trial was done from 2012-2016 on 117 patients. They saw 66.7% of excess weight loss with minimal adverse events. This study deemed BariClip surgery an excellent weight loss procedure with minimal complications.

What if I decide I want my clip removed?

If you have found your results to be successful and you want your clip removed after weight loss, contact our Tijuana location to learn the next steps. We can schedule you for another laparoscopic procedure to remove the BariClip. However, in the BariClip study mentioned above, out of 117 patients tested, only 15 chose to remove the clip within the 39 months they were monitored.

Does BariClip surgery affect ghrelin hormones?

If you have found your results to be successful and you want your clip removed after weight loss, contact our Tijuana location to learn the next steps. We can schedule you for another laparoscopic procedure to remove the BariClip. However, in the BariClip study mentioned above, out of 117 patients tested, only 15 chose to remove the clip within the 39 months they were monitored.

Why should I choose Tijuana for my surgery?

BariClip does not affect the hormones that control hunger. BariClip simply reduces the amount of food you will be able to eat before feeling full.

"No regrets here."
