Bariatric patient awareness: Important things you should know when choosing a bariatric surgeon in Tijuana Mexico

Having bariatric surgery in Tijuana Mexico can lead to a healthier lifestyle and the permanent weight loss results, without mentioning lowering the risk of heart diseases and diabetes.

In order to choose the right surgeon and the right procedure, it is important that patients do some research. However, they should acknowledge all the types of information present online. Patients who have gone under bariatric surgery in Tijuana Mexico, many times share their experience in different media outlets, resulting in positive or negative. Some of them who have achieved successful results, take this as an opportunity to become ambassadors and start getting commissions for their recommendations, which is something you should to take with a grain of salt.

Here are some hints to recognize these types of patients, who often:
  • Invite you into a private conversation on a bariatric forum, send you an inbox message or chat.
  • Talk negative about other doctors.
  • Offer to escort you to the clinic and stay with you through the process.
  • Provide you with paper work to start the process.
  • Become very insistent or annoying.
  • Feature important profiles and have a big presence on several social media like Facebook groups or bariatric forums such as ObesityHelp, Bariatric Pal, Gastric Sleeve and Real Self.
To avoid becoming involved in this situation, the best thing you can do is consult the surgeon’s office directly. Choose a doctor who has certifications, verified experience and good reliable references. Talk to former patients, and Google the name of the doctor along with words such as ‘incident’, ‘complications’, ‘patient died’, etc. Keep in mind that, as with any surgery there are risks present, and that, as part of the normal statistics, the more patients a doctor has served, the more chances he might have certain occurrences.

Do not assume information; get it first-hand at a surgeon’s office. It is good that you do a research on your own, just make a proper analysis, use your best judgment and apply your criteria.
