A Patient Shares Their Positive Experience About Medical Tourism in Mexico
"I can honestly say I had a great experience, from getting picked up until the day I left. Eduardo our driver was very nice and friendly I’m very grateful. The hotel we stayed at was nice and clean and the staff were helpful, courteous and friendly. The day of the surgery got to the hospital was very clean and nice. Yes you can tell they are doing some remodeling outside but the inside was very clean and nice. Everyone I met at the hospital were nice and friendly as well. I met Dr. Alejandro he was very nice. Every Dr. I met and had a conversation with were very helpful and very nice people. Even after the surgery the nurses and staff were always very attentive at all times. I would lie if I said I had a bad experience due to it being the whole opposite of that. I would definitely recommend Dr. Alejandro for this procedure. I thank the nurses, drivers, staff, and anyone else who I did not mention. Thank you so much for your hospitality and for taking care of us the way y’all did God bless!"
About Gastric Bypass Surgery
The Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) is one of the best-known surgical weight loss options.
During gastric bypass surgery, a patient's stomach is divided into two parts. The first part is a small stomach pouch that food will pass through. The lower portion of the small intestine is rerouted to connect to this smaller stomach pouch. The second part of the stomach is rerouted to connect to the small intestine so bile and pancreatic fluid can aid in digestion.
How It Makes Weight Loss Happen
Gastric bypass surgery results in a combination of restrictive and malabsorptive weight loss.
Thanks to the smaller stomach pouch, a patient's food intake is restricted. That means less food and fewer calories can be consumed during a meal. And since part of the small intestine is bypassed, the patient also absorbs fewer calories when their food is digested.

How Much Weight Will I Lose From Gastric Bypass Surgery?
While weight loss can vary based on the patient's degree of obesity, most gastric bypass patients can expect to lose around 70 percent of their excess weight. In addition to shedding pounds, patients will often find relief from weight-related comorbidities such as type 2 diabetes, hypertension (high blood pressure), sleep apnea, joint pain, and an increased risk of heart disease.

Distal Bypass Surgery:
A Gastric Bypass Variation
In addition to standard Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, there is a variation known as distal bypass surgery.
A distal bypass still involves the creation of a smaller stomach pouch and rerouting of the intestine. The difference is that even more of the small intestine is bypassed during the procedure, further reducing calorie absorption during digestion.
Reason for a Distal Bypass
Distal bypass surgery is often performed as a revision procedure for gastric bypass patients who regain some weight. We can discuss the distal version of the procedure in more detail during your consultation at ALO Bariatrics.

Another Glowing Review From a Patient at Our Puerto Vallarta Facility
"Very thorough communication, transportation from and to airport was provided. I went to PV for surgery, hotel was convenient to everything you could need. Dr was top notch, as well as the whole staff I came into contact with. I'm 3 years post op and still have a line of communication when needed. Still responsive. The hospital is so clean I would eat off the floor. I couldn't recommend this more highly than I do. And if you are nervous, reach out to them! They will answer all of your questions! I'd do it all over again!" Christina Hurtgen
Scarring After Gastric Bypass Surgery
There is minimal scarring after a gastric bypass thanks to the use of less invasive laparoscopic techniques. The incisions are small and hard to notice. In fact, many patients can wear bathing suits and outfits that expose their midriff without any noticeable scarring.
By following your postoperative instructions, you can ensure that the scars from these small incisions will fade significantly.
Maintaining Your Weight Loss Results
Eat a Well-Balanced Diet
A nutritious and well-balanced diet is the cornerstone of long-term weight loss results. In addition to picking a good variety of healthy foods, be sure to chew thoroughly and savor your meals to avoid overeating.
Use Supplements as Directed
Malabsorption during digestion can lead to nutritional deficiencies. Gastric bypass patients can take vitamins and other nutritional supplements to address these potential nutritional deficiencies.
Exercise and Keep Active
In addition to a good diet, you can maintain a healthy body weight by exercising regularly and staying active each day. Consider creating a sustainable workout routine that will work for you.
Make Sure to Stay Hydrated
Drinking water between meals has two key benefits for weight maintenance. First, hydration ensures your body works efficiently. Second, hydrating can help control hunger and prevent snacking between meals.
Emotional Support for Your Journey
Speak with your friends and family about your feelings during this time. You can also consult with mental health professionals to address the changes you're going through.
