Fantastic, trustworthy and knowledgeable are just a few adjectives that come to mind. I've known the management at Vida for some time now and have to say that they not only know what they are doing when it comes to cosmetic / plastic surgery & dermatology, but they are definitely a cost effective solution in the saturated surgical space.

I visited VIDA Wellness & Beauty on February of 2019. My experience was beyond amazing. I travelled from Miami because a close friend recommended me this wonderful clinic. The staff was very friendly, professional and attentive to all my needs, not to mention the faculty was super nice and very upscale. I love the way its designed, it felt very comfortable, clean and gave me very relaxing vibrations once I was there. Dr Fuentes performed Botox injections to erase my frown lines. The procedure was very quick, and my results are wonderful! I'm definitely going back and I HIGHLY recommend this place.

Carlo was amazing! He made sure I knew exactly what to expect every step of the way. There was always someone at the hospital who spoke English, and everyone there made my stay comfortable. Carlo even checked up on me once I was home through my recover several times. I will admit I was scared at first about leaving the US to have the surgery but I’m so glad I did it!

The experience was amazing I basically got anything I needed and everyone was very nice, although I am vegan and they couldn’t make any food vegan for me but other than that everyone was very nice and professional and the driver took me to some vegan places in mexicali and I was able to see the city. The surgery I had went really well, and the doctor was able to answer all of my questions. It did help that I speak Spanish but if you dont there’s a translator by your side when ever you need her. The room was very clean and you get your own personal bathroom and around the clock kitchen staff when ever you’re hungry. Overall it was a great experience and I wouldn’t mind doing this all over again also try to explore a lil the food here is great and they have have starbucks.

Five stars and cheers to my husband's wonderful team of caregivers. From our initial contact with Alex, our patient coordinator, to our RN team --Jonathan, Mariela, Alejandra, and Isay --- to the terrific folks in ancillary services - Manuel, Armando, Miriam, Karina, Noe, Jose and Arturo-- we were blessed with people who made us feel welcome and valued. My husband received the best possible care and we felt they were vested in his return to terrific health. They delivered with expert training, compassion and service beyond the call of duty. We hope we don't need major medical care (hip replacement in this case) in the near future. If we do, we will certainly head for Mexicali and the team that supports my husband's wonderful orthopedic surgeon Dr. Juan Alvarez at Hospital Hispano Americano. They deliver truly excellent medical care.

Questions and answers

What is a gastric balloon?

The gastric or intragastric balloon is a short-term medical device aimed to help patients lose excess weight without surgical intervention. It is temporary, but enough effective method to get rid of obesity along with diet and physical activity.

How does gastric balloon in Mexico work?

A soft silicone balloon is inserted into the stomach with the help of an endoscope (tubular instrument passed through the mouth and throat). In the stomach, the balloon is filled with saline occupying the bigger part of the intragastric space. This gives the impression of satiety because the stomach is partially full. As a result, the individual eats less food in one sitting and begins to lose weight.

The balloon is situated in the stomach for 6 months, after which it is removed. It can be inserted for a second time after a break of 2 months. To achieve the maximum effect of this bariatric procedure, the patient needs to keep a diet.

The balloon insertion in Mexico takes an hour. The procedure requires hospitalization — the patient stays in a hospital for a day and then comes back home. 

Who benefits the gastric balloon procedure?

This method is not suitable for people with a very high body mass index (BMI). The recommended BMI for an intragastric balloon procedure starts from 30.

An intragastric balloon can also be used as a preparation for bariatric surgery to reduce the risk of complications. Some weight loss surgeries increase the risk of complications if the patient has severe obesity. In this case, the balloon can reduce excess weight to acceptable standards that allow doctors to perform bariatric surgery with less risk.

The balloon bariatric procedure is especially suitable for people who want to avoid surgery.

What are the main advantages of the gastric balloon method in Mexico?

  • installed through an endoscope without intervention
  • temporary option (6 months)
  • can be reused
  • can be used as preparation for bariatric surgery
  • low risk of complications
  • does not affect the digestive system
  • weight loss is slower than after bariatric surgery.

What are the contraindications for the procedure?

  • inflammatory bowel disease 
  • esophagitis
  • gastric and duodenal ulcers
  • stomach tumors
  • lower gastrointestinal bleeding
  • congenital pyloric stenosis, atresia, and stenosis of the small intestine
  • large hiatal hernia (esophageal opening of the diaphragm)
  • mental disorders
  • alcohol and drug addiction
  • constant intake of aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, steroids, drugs that irritate the stomach, anticoagulants (medications that reduce blood clotting)
  • pregnancy or breastfeeding.

 

Learn more about the contraindications here.

How long is the rehabilitation period after intragastric balloon insertion?

The recovery time takes 3 days. After this period, the patient can return to work. Immediately after the gastric balloon procedure, the patient will need to limit food intake. During the first few days, the diet should consist only of liquid food. In 2 weeks after the procedure, the person can begin to try semi-solid, and then solid food.

The intragastric balloon implies that the patient will change the lifestyle and eating habits to healthier ones. The balloon makes it much easier because it consumes a lot of space in the stomach and reduces the amount of food intake.

The procedure for intragastric balloon installing also involves checks by a surgeon to avoid all sorts of complications.

In 6 months, the balloon will be removed from the stomach in the same way as it was installed. If the patient wants the process to be repeated to achieve a better result, then the balloon can be inserted again after a short break of 2 months.

What are the risks of the gastric balloon?

The intragastric balloon procedure causes fewer complications in contrast with other weight loss surgery methods. The most common among them are:

  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • diarrhea
  • abdominal pain.

What results can you expect after the procedure?

The gastric juice destroys the balloon gradually, so the balloon can be put into the stomach for 6 months, and then it must be taken out. If a patient wants to continue balloon treatment, the procedure will be performed again but only in 2 months.

The procedure's effectiveness depends on the eating habits and the patient’s diet. The gastric balloon in Mexico shows high efficiency in people with not very high BMI, in particular:

  • lose about 20-50 pounds of excess weight
  • decrease body weight by 20%
  • decrease body mass index by 5%.

How much does a gastric balloon cost in Mexico?

Usually, the stomach balloon surgery cost includes consultation with a doctor and the procedure itself. In some clinics balloon packages and programs are available.

The balloon weight loss surgery cost varies depending on:

  • country

Each country offers different prices for the procedure. It depends on state economic development level and average price policy. Asian nations offer 3-4 times lower bariatric balloon cost in comparison with European ones.

  • city

The price for gastric balloon differs from city to city within a particular country. Larger and more economically developed megapolises offer 2 times higher balloon weight loss surgery cost than the smaller cities. However, the quality of the procedure is on the same level.

  • private or state hospital

Clinics are divided into private and state ones. The bariatric balloon cost in state hospitals can be 2 times lower than in private clinics. But the management quality in state centers is also lower. It depends on the country where a hospital is located. Specify the information on at the clinic contact center and read gastric balloon surgery reviews when choosing a hospital.

  • doctor’s qualification

The best bariatric doctors undergo international training and have vast experience. The balloon weight loss surgery cost is higher when a specialist with an excellent reputation performs the procedure.
