If you’re searching for affordable bariatric surgery, you’re not alone. The cost of this surgery in many countries is very expensive, and many people cannot afford to get it done even though it might be necessary for their health and well-being.

The biggest obstacle preventing people from getting bariatric surgery is the cost. This is why we here at Mexico Weight Loss Surgery by Renew Bariatrics offer affordable weight loss Surgery here in Tijuana, Mexico. We know that the costs of healthcare, including surgeries in places like the USA and Canada, are not affordable for everyone, and we seek to ensure that people can get the surgeries they need to be healthy and feel confident.

What is Bariatric Surgery?

If you’re looking into getting bariatric surgery, you probably already know what it is and how it benefits people. However, we are here to explain the surgery and its advantages just in case you need more information.

Bariatric surgery is a type of surgical treatment that is done in order to induce weight loss. This surgery is done for patients that really need to lose weight quickly. Bariatric surgery used to only be for those that were morbidly obese. These people needed to lose weight quickly because their increased weight made them suspectable to many different health problems. 

There are over 200,000 bariatric procedures performed every year, and many of them are done in Mexico because American and Canadian patients cannot afford to get these surgeries done in their own countries.

Mexico is one of the top destinations in the world for those wanting to get surgery because it’s cost-effective, affordable, and safe.

Bariatric surgery includes many different procedures, including gastric sleeve surgery, gastric bypass surgery, and gastric balloon surgery.

If you need any one of these surgeries or you are not sure which one might be right for you, you can give us a call today. We offer consultations where we can give you advice and let you know which one will be the best for you and which one will have the best results.

Cost of Bariatric Surgery

One of the most commonly asked questions is how much the surgery will cost. Of course, you want to know how much money you are going to spend so you can prepare your mind and your wallet.

Here is a breakdown of the bariatric surgeries we offer and the associated costs.

Gastric Sleeve Surgery

This Gastric Sleeve Surgery in Mexico reduces the volume of the stomach. It removes a portion of the stomach, so the patient is left with a smaller stomach which decreases appetite and increases satiety.

The average cost of a bariatric gastric sleeve surgery in Mexico is about $4,000. This is one of the lowest prices in the world compared to other North American countries. You can learn more about the Gastric Sleeve Surgery Cost in Mexico.

In the USA and Canada, the cost of a gastric sleeve surgery without insurance can cost somewhere between $10,000 to $20,000. If you have insurance, you might be able to get the surgery covered or part of the surgery covered.

Duodenal Switch

The Duodenal Switch Surgery in Mexico is an effective bariatric weight loss surgery that removes a percentage of the stomach to reduce calories and nutrient absorption to aid weight loss.

This is the most expensive of all the procedures, with a cost of around $25,000 in the USA. The surgery is very complex and requires a skilled surgeon and a long hospital stay which is why the cost is often more expensive than other bariatric surgery options.

It helps a patient to lose weight and also reduces the risks of other diseases like hypertension, sleep apnea, diabetes, and osteoarthritis. You can learn more about the Duodenal Switch Surgery Cost in Mexico.

Gastric Banding

The price for gastric banding in the USA is usually between $15,000 to $24,000. However, the cost in Mexico is about 70% of that. The procedure takes an adjustable silicone band and wraps it around the upper part of the stomach.

There is a plastic tube that sits just under the skin where you can inject sterile water. With water, the band can be loosened or tightened, which can affect how much weight you will lose as well as the side effects you will experience.

Available Financing Options

In addition to the methods above, we also have several other financing options that we can provide for you. We know that financing options are important because they lower the overall costs and they provide a way for people to have stress-free surgeries.

Here are some of the flexible financing options we can give:

  • Citerra Finance: This company focuses on loan programs specifically for Bariatric patients. They have a wide range of lenders that they can work with and find the perfect loan for you. They can also find the best terms and rates, so you always have the perfect financing options with them. Their repayment terms are very flexible, and the application is very simple.
  • Medicard/iFinance Canada: This company is only for Canadian patients, but there are many benefits to using them. They look at your credit and then determine what kind of financing option they can give you. They are really known for being one of the best financing options in Canada because they are flexible, and you can have immediate access to funds.
  • eMedical Financing Solutions: This is the best company for those that might have low or bad credit scores because they can offer funding and financial solutions even for those with poor credit. They also work with many different lenders so they can shop around for you and then find the best prices and interest rates.
  • United Credit: This company used to be known as United Medical Credit, but they have since changed their name, although they do the same services. They have multiple plans to choose from, and they can give you a decision in just a few seconds. They offer flexible terms, and the application process is very simple, with no commitment.

Along with credit cards, as mentioned above, we also accept cash and cashier’s check. If you are worried about the financing part of bariatric surgery, you can contact us today to talk about the specifics.

Some people also use to take a loan from their 401k or a retirement plan to help them finance the surgery. This might not be an option for everyone, but if you have a way to take a loan from your 401k, it can be very cost-effective and easy compared to some of the other solutions.

Medical loans are also an option for many. Secured medical loans are a loan that is backed with collateral. You will have to back up the loan with something you already own, like your home or car. If you are not able to pay back the loan, the collateral can be used in place of payments.

You can also choose an unsecured medical loan if you have a higher credit score. These do not have to be backed by collateral and can be given as a credit card, broker, or loan.

We have financial advisors and planners that can work with you to ensure you can have the surgery done with the proper financing.

Tax Benefits of Bariatric Surgery in Tijuana

In addition to having affordable Bariatric surgery services, we can also give you some advice on the tax benefits of having the surgery in Tijuana. All bariatric surgeries are tax deductible, so you can deduct all the costs of the surgery from your taxes which can be great savings.

There are some slight terms and conditions, though. For example, the surgeries are only tax deductible if your total yearly health-related costs are more than 7.5% of your adjusted gross income.

If it’s not, you have to itemize your deductions on the tax return rather than just taking a standard deduction.

Medical expenses that can be used to see the total amount you have spent on healthcare include money you have spent on the diagnoses, cure, treatment, or mitigation of disease. It also includes the prevention of diseases. It includes all functions and structures of the body, so there is no limit on the type of surgery or type of treatment that you have received.

You can also use the surgery-related expenses such as any airfare, hotel, or taxi costs.

The more surgeries and treatments you have had in the same year, the more money you can write off your taxes. This is why we recommend patients try and get their bariatric surgery in the same year that they have already had procedures done, as the total amount is sure to amount to more than 7.5% of your adjusted gross income.

You can also use the cost of cosmetic procedures in case you got any dental procedures.

Keep in mind that if you have any questions about your tax deductions, it’s best to meet with a licensed tax expert. Your surgery saving you money when it comes to doing taxes also depends on what other deductions you might have, such as mortgage interest, the money you have given to charities, and local and state income taxes.

Sometimes the standard deduction makes more sense if you do not have other deductions, while an itemized deduction can save you money if you have many deductions that you can write off the taxes.
