    Facilities throughout Mexico, Central and South America have become world renowned for their ability to provide a variety of obesity and bariatric surgery procedures. Obesity surgery centers have become increasingly popular south of the border due to rising healthcare costs in the United States, coupled with long wait times.

    Increasing numbers of North Americans, including Canadians, as well as individuals from Western Europe, are traveling to South American facilities such as the Antiobesity Center located in Cancun, Mexico or seeking the specialized services of experts like Dr. Marco More, bariatric surgeon in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Bariatric weight loss surgery includes a variety of procedures, including laparoscopic gastric banding, gastric bypass, obesity plastic surgery, weight loss treatment facilities, banded and vertical gastroplasty, among others.

    Weight Loss Options Attract Travelers
    Growing numbers of obesity and weight loss clinics and hospitals offer U.S. board-certified bariatric surgeons such as Dr. Rodrigo Gonzalez of Angels Abroad, located in Guatemala City, Guatemala. Improving quality of life and a wide selection of focused weight loss surgeries coupled with counseling and nutritional support, weight loss treatment facilities in Latin America has helped hundreds of formerly obese individuals seek not only healthier lifestyles but enjoy enhanced quality of life.

    However, individuals seeking safe and effective weight loss procedures, treatments and surgeries must also be able to afford them. Unfortunately, the cost of bariatric surgeries in the United States prevents many from seeking help. In the United States, weight loss surgical procedures range in cost from $17,000 to $30,000 or more, not including hospitalization, consultations and lab fees. A sleeve gastrectomy procedure in the United States costs about $20,000, while the same procedure provided in Mexico averages around $10,000, and in Costa Rica, $9,000 - for all inclusive care. It's not difficult to understand what draws hundreds of patients to such facilities, offering quality, experienced and effective treatments.

    Thanks for everything, I'm so glad that I spoke to you and found such a wonderful weight loss treatment. If you need to visit this hospital then feel free here: 1.303.578.0719, info@placidway.com
