High-BMI Bariatric Surgery

BMI scale

Weight loss surgery is typically recommended to patients with body mass indexes (BMI) between 30 and 50. As such, patients with very high BMIs may worry that they are disqualified from bariatric surgery. However, the surgeons affiliated with Tijuana Bariatrics have performed weight loss procedures for patients with BMIs of 80 and higher.

Advanced Weight Loss Surgery Options

Gastric Sleeve Plication Surgery

This advanced procedure reduces stomach capacity without removing any stomach tissue. It involves the bariatric surgeon laparoscopically creating large folds in the stomach, reducing stomach capacity by about 70 percent.

Explore Gastric Sleeve Plication

Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Also known as sleeve gastrectomy, gastric sleeve surgery removes a large portion of the stomach to limit the amount of food that patients are able to consume. This procedure has a high success rate, and some patients experience a loss of more than half of their weight in only four to six months.*

Explore Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Mini Gastric Bypass Surgery

Similar to gastric bypass surgery, this procedure modifies the stomach and creates a pouch that can hold less than a cup of food. "Mini" gastric bypass involves less intestinal rerouting, so the surgery is quicker and the chance of complications is reduced.

Explore Mini Gastric Bypass Surgery

Gastric Bypass Surgery

Gastric bypass is one of the most commonly performed bariatric procedures. It divides the stomach into two pouches to limit food consumption. Gastric bypass has a high success rate, with a significant number of patients experiencing maintainable long-term weight loss.*

Explore Gastric Bypass Surgery


SADI-s stands for single anastomosis duodenal-ileal bypass with sleeve gastrectomy. This procedure is a variation of duodenal switch surgery. A surgeon creates a gastric sleeve, which is then connected to a portion of the small intestine that bypasses most of the digestive system.

This offers restrictive and malabsorptive benefits by shortening the path the food travels and limiting caloric absorption. The main difference between SADI-s and duodenal switch is that SADI-s involves one artificial connection instead of two, making it a simpler procedure.

Explore SADI-s

Duodenal Switch Surgery

This procedure can reduce the size of your stomach and restrict the number of calories your body absorbs. It has a lower chance of producing adverse side effects than other weight loss surgeries, and it does not interfere with your natural stomach functions.

Explore Duodenal Switch Surgery

LAP-BAND Surgery

The LAP-BAND system is designed to reduce your stomach capacity through the use of a medical band. The band can easily be adjusted to maintain results. LAP-BAND surgery involves a relatively short procedure and recovery time.

Explore LAP-BAND

Revision Surgery

If you have undergone bariatric surgery and have experienced complications or are dissatisfied with the results, a bariatric surgeon in network with Tijuana Bariatrics can perform revision surgeries to correct complications. In some cases, it may be necessary to achieve or maintain satisfactory results.

Explore Bariatric Revision Surgery

Gastric Balloon

A gastric balloon is a weight loss treatment that doesn't require stitches or sutures. This silicone pouch is inserted into the stomach endoscopically and then filled with a saline solution once in place. This reduces the stomach's capacity for food and helps you feel fuller despite eating less.

Adolescent Bariatric Surgery

Bariatric surgery can be very effective for adolescents who struggle to manage obesity through diet and exercise. The surgeons who coordinate with Tijuana Bariatrics can explore this avenue with patients as young as 14.

Early intervention can set a young person's life on a completely new course. They can experience improvement in conditions like type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea, and fatty liver disease, not to mention transformative effects for self-confidence, activity, and overall quality of life.

Elder Bariatric Surgery

Weight loss surgery can help you shed weight you've accumulated with age or excess weight that you've struggled with your whole life. Find new confidence, mobility, health, and freedom through bariatric surgery.
