The Be Slim Promise

Are you worried you won’t lose enough weight after bariatric surgery or might need revision surgery? We understand, and that’s why when you opt for the BSB Promise you are covered for the cost of revision bariatric surgery if weight loss within 12 months of surgery is not at least 60% of your excess weight.

Book Your Appointment

Book Your Consultation

This program is based on the stipulation that the patient needs to schedule an appointment with their primary care physician at 12 months following their bariatric surgery with BSB. Evidence from your medical doctor that weight loss 12 months post-op doesn’t meet the 60% excess weight loss expectation.  Also, to participate, patients must communicate with their patient coordinator any weight loss stalls or gains, and must maintain an active subscription to the BSB supplement program, which is sent to you monthly, and must be taken as directed.

What to Expect from BSB

BSB practices adhere to HIPAA guidelines. Dr Omar Paipilla is the Medical Director of Hospital CIBA, an exclusive and well-known obesity treatment hospital specializing in bariatric surgery. Dr Paipilla is an extremely skilled, highly respected board-certified bariatric surgeon in Mexico, and everything you need is available from this cutting-edge hospital, including sterile operating rooms and an extensively appointed intensive care unit.

Discover if you are eligible for weight loss surgery, and a member of our team will contact you to find out if you wish to proceed. However, there will be no pressure to do so. If you decide to proceed — with the authorization of your surgeon — we can then book a date for your bariatric surgery.

We know waiting can increase anxiety, so aim to arrange your procedure 14 days after you are approved. However, if you prefer, you can also book a date as far ahead as 12 months.

Aftercare and Nutritional Program with BSB

We pride ourselves on our long-term aftercare and nutritional planning support. Your personal patient coordinator is available to help you anytime during and after your bariatric surgery in Mexico if you need assistance.

Every patient’s nutritional guidance is developed by our qualified nutritionist and based on individual patient requirements. There is no such thing as a standardized bariatric nutrition program; your nutrition plan is based on your bariatric surgery procedure, medical information, dietary demands, body mass index (BMI), and weight loss goals.

Also, your personal patient coordinator will contact you by phone and text the day after you return home, then again after two weeks, one month, three months, six months, and twelve months. We also encourage you to join our support group on Facebook, where our patients connect and support each other.

If you have any concerns, you can contact your patient coordinator, who can arrange for you to speak with your bariatric surgeon via phone, if required, text or email after your surgery. All medical records are shared with you to safeguard your health. And we follow all HIPAA guidelines and regulations to ensure your medical records are accurate and up to date.

I can’t say enough good things about Be Slim Bariatrics! They have changed my life forever. I appreciate the staff and nurses at Ciba Hospital and especially Dr Paipilla. He did a wonderful job and made me feel important.

He is my hero. I had surgery one month ago, and my health has already improved dramatically. My diabetes is gone, and I am down a total 50 lbs. My only regret is that I didn’t get this done sooner.

I cannot say anything but praise for this place! My surgery was performed by Dr Paipilla, and he is a super guy. No issues; all went as planned. Courteous people and a safe shuttle from San Diego to Tijuana. Excellent and pristine cleanliness.

I had gastric sleeve surgery on Dec 7th, 2022. I had a great experience, from the hospital to the hotel to my post-op. I never had pain, never was nauseous, and never threw up, I was expecting a little of all of that at the least, but my body did great. I definitely make the better choices when it comes to food, but I don’t deprive myself of the foods I want to taste. I’m down 28 lbs just one-month post-op, and I have zero complaints!!

I started at 210 lbs. I’m now 182 lbs and close to my goal weight, which is 150 lbs. If you are thinking about going to Mexico and you are nervous, plz don’t be. The staff are very professional and caring !! I would do it again !!! I’m a month out, and they are still checking in on me.
