Bariatric Surgery Options


Our bariatric surgeons in Puerto Vallarta provide several weight loss surgeries, such as:
Gastric bypass surgery in Mexico

Gastric Bypass

Gastric bypass helps patients feel full after eating less food. The surgery involves dividing the stomach into two sections and connecting the small intestine to the smaller, upper part of the stomach. This surgery can lead to substantial weight loss and lifestyle changes for the better.

Gastric Sleeve

Gastric sleeve surgery also allows patients to limit their caloric intake. A portion of the stomach tissue is removed, and the new, smaller stomach is sealed shut. The result of a gastric sleeve is a reduced stomach capacity and a significantly reduced appetite.

Duodenal Surgery (Duodenal Switch)

The duodenal surgery method involves removing a portion of the stomach and shortening the small intestine. This switch allows food to pass only through the lower portion of the small intestine, reducing caloric absorption.


An adjustable band is placed around the stomach to limit stomach capacity. This surgery is unique because it doesn’t require significant surgical changes to the stomach and can be easily reversed.

We were fortunate enough to book bariatric gastric sleeve surgery with Alo. Sandra was an excellent coordinator and she really cares about the patients. The whole staff was top notch. Do yourself a favor and don't look anywhere else if you need bariatric surgery.

Wow. Exceeded my expectations after doing over a year and a half of research into gastric sleeve. I had a friend recommend ALÔ and it was the best decision of my life! The care, attention, treatment, communication, everything was top notch.
