Testimonials, Success Stories, Before and After Photos
Mexico Bariatric Center patients have been known to lose up to 75 pounds or more in six months, but weight loss results vary depending on the individual. No GUARANTEE is provided or implied.
The photographs on Mexico Bariatric Center testimonials are actual patients who have completed a surgery with Mexico Bariatric Center. Results may vary based on each patient’s physical health, diet and exercise, and adherence to the Mexico Bariatric Center post-surgery diet. The weight loss results described in testimonials or photos are not typical for every individual. This highly depends on the adherence to the nutritional plan as well as following instructions from Mexico Bariatric Center, among a multitude of other factors.
The pictures on our site demonstrate our clinical cases, before and after, have not been digitally modified nor in any way enhanced. The before-after pictures present the same person. These persons explicitly agreed to have their pictures taken and to be published. It is important to know that the result presented concerns this particular person and we cannot guarantee the exact
same result, since it varies depending on the patient.
