Trying to lose weight through strict diets, weight loss pills, and expensive workout regimens can lead to disappointing results.
Instead, consider the LAP-BAND®, a silicone ring that is placed around the upper part of the stomach, restricting how much you can eat.
The experienced surgeons of ALO Bariatrics offer affordable LAP-BAND surgery in Tijuana, Guadalajara, and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico...
LAP-BAND Is a Popular Approach to Weight Loss Here's Why
Many patients who want to overcome obesity are worried about the risk and invasiveness of traditional bariatric surgery. LAP-BAND surgery is one of the least invasive weight loss surgeries, as our surgeons can place the gastric band through two tiny and discreetly placed incisions. Additionally, the procedure does not involve any stapling or rerouting of the intestines.
LAP-BAND surgery is one of the only adjustable and reversible forms of weight loss surgery. When needed, the gastric band can be easily adjusted using only a small needle. If you decide that another weight loss strategy is better suited to your needs, the LAP-BAND can also be removed.
Our surgeons can complete this procedure in less than an hour, which means that patients have to spend less time under anesthesia. This reduces the risk of surgical complications. Also, because there are only two incisions instead of five, there is a reduced risk of wound infection.
Despite its simplicity, the LAP-BAND works, and most patients lose around 50 percent of their excess weight after their procedure. To ensure the best results, patients who choose this surgery will need to commit to a healthy lifestyle following their surgery.

"I Had a Wonderful Experience" Real 5-Star Reviews
I had a wonderful experience at ALO Bariatrics. I would highly recommend this facility! The doctors, nurses and facility were comparable to those in the U.S. and the care was wonderful!
Excellent and dedicated staff. Dr showed how much he cared. Being out of the country I was worried about if I had questions but he's always answered all questions. I've had great results, I would choose this place again!
How Much Is LAP-BAND Surgery in Mexico?
One of the greatest benefits of undergoing LAP-BAND surgery in Mexico is that the procedure will be much more affordable than it would be in the United States. Additionally, gastric banding is more affordable than other procedures we perform in Tijuana, Guadalajara, and Puerto Vallarta, including gastric bypass surgery.
|Location||Gastric Sleeve||Gastric Bypass||Duodenal Switch||LAP-BAND|
|Guadalajara - Real San Jose||$5,100||$6,700||$7,400||$6,700|
|Guadalajara - Puerta de Hierro||$4,500||$6,100||$6,600||$5,300|
How Does the LAP-BAND Work?
Because this procedure is much less invasive than gastric bypass surgery or sleeve gastrectomy, patients only have to stay at the hospital for one night.

What Happens When a LAP-BAND Is Removed?
While LAP-BANDs have helped many patients lose weight, they can become loose over time, causing a plateau in weight loss or weight regain.
If the LAP-BAND does not help you lose the desired amount of excess weight, we can adjust your gastric band or perform a revision bariatric surgery. When we remove your LAP-BAND, one of our surgeons can perform a revision surgery such as a gastric sleeve or a gastric bypass.
LAP-BAND to Gastric Sleeve A Popular Bariatric Surgery Revision Procedure
What Is a Sleeve Gastrectomy?
Like gastric banding surgery, gastric sleeve is a restrictive weight loss surgery. The surgical procedure permanently creates a smaller stomach pouch, whereas LAP-BAND uses an implanted silicone band to temporarily resize the stomach.
Why Gastric Sleeve Conversion?
Sleeve gastrectomy can help address weight-related comorbidities such as high blood pressure and diabetes, achieving results that are comparable to or better than the LAP-BAND procedure. It's also a much simpler surgery than Roux-en-Y gastric bypass.
During your consultation at our Tijuana, Puerto Vallarta, or Guadalajara offices, we can help you consider your options and select the bariatric surgery that's right for your needs.
