If you have been looking into weight reduction surgeries and are considering getting a gastric bypass, you might be wondering if the cost is less in Tijuana. Compared to other countries like the USA and Canada, getting a gastric bypass surgery in Mexico is very cost-effective and can save you a lot of money.

Gastric bypass surgeries are a very common and popular bariatric procedure. Although it costs more than surgeries like gastric sleeve and mini gastric bypass, the results are often fantastic, and people are happy with their choice to have this surgery.

Save Money With Tijuana Medical Tourism

In the last few decades, Mexico has become a popular place for people to come and receive procedures and operations. Some people also come here for routine healthcare checkups because the loss is extremely low compared to what they would pay in other countries like the USA and Canada.

Medical tourism is when people travel to another country just to receive medical care because they find the services more affordable.

When you come to Tijuana for medical tourism, you can save thousands of dollars but still have your surgery in a safe environment with well-qualified doctors.

Your US or Canadian Dollars will go so much further when you are in Mexico, which is why many people choose to come here to receive their surgeries. Mexico Weight Loss Surgery by Renew Bariatrics brings in many different patients from across the border because of our low costs.

When you schedule your surgery with us, you could save as much as $15,000. This is an immense saving, and you won’t have to worry about trying to hustle for the money to get surgery.

Although you are saving a ton of money, you are not compromising on health or safety. All our surgeons are board certified and have completed thousands of successful bariatric surgeries.

We have three leading surgeons who will be the ones doing your gastric bypass surgery.

Dr. Hector Perez works in both Tijuana and Cancun. He speaks fluent English, so there are no worries about a language barrier. He has been working in the bariatric surgery sector for over 11 years. He also studied in the USA at the University of Miami.

Our other main surgeon is Dr. Jorge Green. He is one of the leading surgeons in Tijuana and has done more than 1000 bariatric surgeries. He focuses on gastric bypass surgery as well as revisional surgeries and gastric sleeve surgeries.

Lastly, we have Dr. Rene Armenta. He is a skilled bariatric surgeon focusing on gastric bypass. He also focuses on metabolic diseases. He has worked with patients all over the world and is ready to help you with any weight reduction surgery you choose. 

How Much Does Gastric Bypass Surgery Cost in Mexico?

At Renew Bariatrics, the cost of a gastric bypass surgery in Mexico starts at $5,799. Gastric Bypass Surgery, a highly effective weight loss procedure, is available at a significantly reduced cost in Mexico, particularly at Renew Bariatrics. The affordability of this procedure in Mexico is a major draw for many seeking bariatric surgery options. On average, the cost for Gastric Bypass Surgery in Mexico ranges from $5,500 to $11,000 USD. This cost disparity is influenced by various factors, including the choice of clinic, the surgeon’s expertise, and the specific details of the surgery package.

In the USA, they can cost $20,000 or more. The actual cost in the US can vary, though, depending on where you live and what hospital you plan to have the procedure done at. Sometimes, it can even cost up to $35,000.

In Mexico, bariatric surgery centers can offer you a safe and affordable solution to the surgery you need but cannot afford in the USA or whatever your home country is.

Since gastric bypass surgeries are often more expensive compared to other types of bariatric surgeries, you will find the costs in other countries are too high and not achievable for most people unless they have an insurance provider that is willing to cover the costs of the surgeries.

Keep in mind that the cost of the actual surgery is not the only thing you will pay for. You will also have to go to nutritionist appointments and buy nutritional supplements in order to lose weight more effectively and stay healthy in the process.

Most people also have to buy a completely new wardrobe because their old clothes are no longer fit. This can be very costly even if you buy secondhand.

Although rare when done by a certified surgeon, complications can arise from any surgery. If your insurance covers the surgery, they will also cover complications. However, if not covered by the insurance, you will also have to pay for the complications out of pocket, just like you paid for the surgery itself.

Follow-up visits are not included for all places, so keep in mind you might also have to pay for follow-up visits depending on where you choose to get your surgery done.

All the things above can lead to thousands of extra dollars being spent after the surgery. At Renew Bariatrics in Tijuana, though, you can receive surgery with one of our all-inclusive packages starting at just $5,799.

Gastric Bypass Surgery Cost in The United States

In contrast, Gastric Bypass Surgery costs in the United States are significantly higher due to the intricate healthcare system and operational expenses. The price for this surgery in the U.S. can vary widely, typically ranging from $20,000 to $35,000 USD or more. This cost usually covers the surgeon’s fees, hospitalization, anesthesia, and pre-and post-operative care.

It’s important to note that the cost can also fluctuate based on geographical location, the medical facility, and the patient’s specific health requirements. Insurance coverage for Gastric Bypass in the U.S. varies by provider and policy, with some patients finding that their insurance does not fully cover the procedure, leading to substantial out-of-pocket expenses.

The significant cost difference makes Mexico an appealing destination for Gastric Bypass Surgery. Renew Bariatrics offers an affordable alternative without compromising the quality of medical care, providing patients with a viable and cost-effective solution for their weight loss surgery needs.

Gastric Bypass Surgery Vs. Other Procedures

Since there are several different weight loss surgeries, you might be wondering if a gastric bypass is the best one for you or if you should go another route. The best thing to do is schedule a free consultation with us. The surgeon will be able to look at you and your medical history and determine which weight loss surgery is the best for you.

Gastric bypass surgeries are not the only weight loss surgery option we have. We also offer our patients the choice to have mini gastric bypass surgeries or gastric sleeve surgeries.

Gastric sleeve surgeries are less complicated, but they can still have long-lasting weight loss results. Gastric sleeve surgeries start at around $3,500, so they are also cheaper than gastric bypass surgery options.

Mini gastric bypass is another common surgery that people choose to get instead of gastric bypass because it’s less invasive but still has amazing results.

Financing Options

Since the price of gastric bypass surgery in Tijuana is much lower compared to surgery options in the USA and Canada, many people find that they can pay out of pocket with their savings.

This is not the only option, though. We take all kinds of credit cards, so you can feel free to pay with American Express, Visa, or Mastercard.

We also work with third-party lenders who can provide financing for you. These are third-party companies, so we do not control the interest rates and approval rates, but many of our patients have worked with them in the past and have been very happy with the funding they have received.

We aim to make your surgery as cost-effective as possible. We can work with you to ensure you have an effective and affordable solution that fits the budget you have saved for your weight loss surgery.

Here are some of the financing options we offer:

  • Citerra Finance: This company offers affordable financing. The process is very easy and smooth. The exact interest rates will depend on your credit score. They also offer the choice for you to add extra money if you want to travel and add spending money to the total loan amount.
  • United Credit: This company has several different plans to choose from. You can get approval within minutes, and they offer flexible repayment terms with no prepayment penalties. The best part is the application is very easy, and you do not have to commit until you are ready.
  • iFinance Medical Medicare: This option is for Canadians only and is very cost-effective because they have competitive interest rates. The approval process is quick, and the approval rate is high. 

If none of these options work for you, you can also choose to get a loan from your bank or another lender of your choosing. Some people can get secured or unsecured medical loans from online lenders or their banks.

Some people also choose to borrow from relatives or friends if this is an option.
